Gluten Free, Dairy Free Zucchini Muffins | Bob's Red Mill

Gluten and Dairy Free Zucchini Muffins for Mother’s Day

by Sarena Shasteen in Gluten Free, Recipes

I think about mother’s day a little differently than most people. To me, mother’s day is more of a celebration of the men in my little family than it is about me. Really, without them, I wouldn’t be a mother, right? So, I enjoy making Mother’s Day a special day for all of us. Sure, I love being taken care of as much as the next person, but nothing warms my heart more than doing something special for my guys. Mother’s day is a day that I either bake for my guys or we take some time to bake together. Since the kitchen is my favorite place to be, this is naturally where I choose to spend my special day.

Gluten Free, Dairy Free Zucchini Muffins | Bob's Red Mill

Nothing starts my day off better than baking a fresh batch of muffins for my guys. I love how excited they get when they wake up to the sweet smell of something being baked for them to enjoy for breakfast. Being the health nut that I am, though, I have to incorporate some healthier muffins loaded with veggies. Zucchini muffins are a favorite around here and with the summer bounty of zucchini coming up, I wanted to share our favorite use for all the garden goodness that’s ahead. These are light and fluffy with a hint of spice from the cinnamon and a little extra sweetness from the sugar sprinkled on top. I assure you, your family will love these as much as mine does.

Happy Mother’s Day

Gluten Free Dairy Free Oatmeal Quick Bread | Bob's Red Mill

Oatmeal Quick Bread- Gluten and Dairy Free

by Sarena Shasteen in Gluten Free, Recipes

Who says you can’t have bread just because you can’t eat gluten? Not this girl for sure. Let’s just say I make a lot of bread around here for a family that’s gluten free. The breads I make range from kind of complicated to really easy. Today, I’m sharing a really easy recipe with you. I came up with this jewel out of a need for a quick hearty bread to go with our Sunday brunch, as well as, needing something easy that my husband can throw together when he’s needing bread with dinner. This oatmeal quick bread goes really well with a salad or bowl of soup. It has an amazingly crunchy crust on the outside with a beautifully dense chewy interior highlighted by a wholesome nutty flavor from the oatmeal. For brunch, we served it with butter and a drizzle of honey. It was delicious!

Gluten and Dairy Free Oatmeal Quick Bread

(makes about a 1 pound loaf)

In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, oatmeal, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Mix well with a fork. Next add the cold butter to the flour mixture and cut it in with a fork until thoroughly combined and the mixture resembles a course meal. Next add the milk, eggs and vinegar to the flour mixture using a fork or a rubber spatula. Stir until well combined. Refrigerate the dough for 10 minutes while you preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. When the oven is ready, using the rubber spatula, form the dough into a ball and then dump it onto the parchment paper. Using the spatula, even out the dough ball to for a circle. Cut a cross into the dough and then sprinkle the top with the reserved oatmeal. Bake for 40 to 60 minutes or until slightly browned and the crust sounds hollow when tapped. Allow to cool for at least 20 minutes then slice and serve.

What is it Wednesday | Bob's Red Mill

What is it? Wednesday: Popcorn

by Cassidy Stockton in What is it? Wednesday, Whole Grains 101

What is popcorn and what makes it different from ‘regular’ corn? Popcorn is quite simply, a variety of corn. Some corn is best for milling cornmeal, some corn is best for eating on the cob, some corn is best for feeding livestock and some corn is best for popping. Unlike these other types of corn, popcorn is the only variety of corn that will pop when exposed to heat.

What is the difference between white, yellow, red, blue and all the other colors of popcorn? The color of the hulls is the primary difference between the different colors of popcorn. That shiny outer layer of a popcorn kernel is the hull and will be different colors depending on the variety of popcorn. The white part we associate with popcorn is generally white (I have yet to see one that is truly another color) regardless of the hull color. I have noticed that blue popcorn tends to be very white, while yellow is a bit more creamy. No matter what, though, they all have pretty much the same corn flavor and nutritional profile.

Is popcorn a whole grain? Yes, all popcorn is whole grain. Whether you buy the chemical-laden packets from the store or choose a simple bag of unpopped kernels like ours, all popcorn is whole grain. This makes it an ideal snack. We prefer the simple popcorn to the junky versions, but in the world of snacks, popcorn is far superior to convenience foods. It has a healthy dose of fiber, is very low in calories and pretty darn tasty, too!

What is it? Wednesday: Popcorn | Bob's Red Mill non-gmo, gluten free, healthy

Is Bob’s Red Mill popcorn gluten free? Popcorn is naturally gluten free. At this time, our popcorn is not certified or tested gluten free. We plan to add gluten free testing and our gluten free symbol in a few months. If gluten is a concern for you, be sure to look for our gluten free symbol on the packaging.

Is Bob’s Red Mill popcorn non-GMO? Yes! Bob’s Red Mill yellow and white popcorn were the very first Non-GMO Project verified items in our line. They will be the first products to proudly display the Non-GMO Project logo.

What is it? Wednesday: Popcorn | Bob's Red Mill non-gmo, gluten free, healthy

What is the best way to make it? Do you need a popper? There is no single right way to make popcorn. Anyway that yields a healthy amount of popped corn is right in our book, however, you don’t need a popper and you don’t need a fancy packet to make a quick batch of popcorn in the microwave. Check out this post for a handy, easy-to-follow microwave method using only popcorn and a paper bag. (These instructions will start appearing on our packaging soon.) Works like a charm, trust us.

Our favorite ways to enjoy popcorn are:

Nooch Crackers | Bob's Red Mill gluten free, dairy free, paleo friendly, vegan

Nooch Crackers

by Cassidy Stockton in Gluten Free, Meatless Mondays, Recipes

I’ll be the first to admit that I was skeptical about nutritional yeast (aka nooch) crackers. I thought they would be bland or fake tasting. I’ve never been so delighted to be proven wrong. These crispy little crackers don’t taste like those name brand cheese crackers you can buy in a box. Instead, they taste like an artisanal cheese cracker that someone lovingly made in their home kitchen. They are crisp, but have a little bit of give to them, as only a homemade cracker will.

Combined with almond meal, nutritional yeast makes these crackers as rich as their boxed brethren, but the ingredient list is so much cleaner (not to mention they’re gluten free, dairy free, vegan and paleo-friendly). I am pretty sure I could eat an entire batch of these in one go, they’re THAT good. These are perfect on their own and will be equally at home in a lunchbox or at a fancy dinner party, if they even make it off the sheet tray they were baked on.

Nooch Crackers | Bob's Red Mill gluten free, dairy free, paleo friendly, vegan

Nooch Crackers

Prep Time:  15 minutes | Cook Time:  25 – 30 minutes

Yield: approx. 50 crackers

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Step 2

In a small bowl, combine golden flaxseed meal and water.  Let sit for 5 minutes.

Step 3

Meanwhile, combine almond meal, nutritional yeast and salt in a large bowl.  Add melted coconut oil, lemon juice and flaxseed meal mixture and mix until a dough forms.

Step 4

Transfer dough to a piece of parchment paper and cover with a second piece of parchment paper.  Roll dough between parchment paper, removing and replacing the parchment as needed, to 1/16-inch thickness.

Step 5

Remove top sheet of parchment paper and transfer crackers on bottom sheet of parchment paper to a sheet tray.  Cut into 1 ½-inch squares or desired shapes.  Dock each cracker with a fork and sprinkle generously with kosher or large flake salt.

Step 6

Bake in preheated oven until deep golden, about 25 minutes.

Nacho Cheez Dip | Bob's Red Mill vegan, gluten free, paleo friendly

Cashew Cheez Sauce

by Cassidy Stockton in Gluten Free, Recipes

Whether you avoid dairy for health reasons or simply choose not to include it in your life, you may find yourself occasionally missing some of the more indulgent forms dairy can take, like cheese sauce for instance. This simple recipe uses our nutritional yeast to mimic the flavor of cheese for those times when you just want to dip your chips in cheese sauce.

This ‘cheese’ sauce is wonderfully creamy and thickens up quite nicely. It’s perfect on nachos, as a dip for just about anything (fondue anyone?) and makes a stellar non-dairy mac and cheese. If you like things spicy, try kicking this up a notch by adding some hot sauce. It’s kind of the perfect Friday night recipe. Make a batch, grab some chips and veggies and watch some form of sports ball or that show you’ve been trying to catch up on… and if you eat the whole thing, we won’t tell.

Nacho Cheez Dip | Bob's Red Mill vegan, gluten free, paleo friendly

Cashew Cheez Sauce

Prep Time:  10 minutes

Yield: approx. 2 cups

Step 1

In a food processor or blender, process cashews to a very fine powder, adding a small amount of water if needed.

Step 2

Add Bob’s Red Mill Nutritional Yeast, salt and garlic powder and mix to combine.  Add lemon juice and water and process until smooth.

Step 3

Serve warm or at room temperature.  Gently reheat over very low heat.

Gluten and Dairy Free Roasted Peach Cobbler | Bob's Red Mill

Roasted Peach Cobbler (GF, DF)

by Sarena Shasteen in Gluten Free, Recipes

Here’s the deal. I was given a challenge to use Bob’s Red Mill’s new gluten free 1 to 1 baking flour in an old family favorite recipe. I normally mix my flours to achieve certain textures with my gluten free baking, but this flour is a new product by Bob’s Red Mill that is supposed to relieve me of that stress. It definitely did that!

Gluten and Dairy Free Roasted Peach Cobbler | Bob's Red Mill

I had a few ideas, but the first one was biscuits and, well, they already have that recipe on the bag for us. So, I talked with my guys and the first thing they said was Peach Cobbler. I couldn’t argue with this. I mean come on! I’m a Southern girl. I LOVE my cobblers! I grew up with a cup a cup a cup cobbler recipes. You know, a cup of flour, a cup of sugar and a cup of fruit with the juices. I have since, made my own version with a little less sugar, but still the concept is the same. I added a little extra milk to my recipe since I was using fresh fruit. Fresh fruit cobblers are a favorite here now  during the summer time and well, as you all know from my other posts here, I’m a Georgia peach girl through and through. So, we had a plan.

Gluten and Dairy Free Roasted Peach Cobbler | Bob's Red Mill

I put a different spin on my usual peach cobbler this time and decided to roast the peaches. Oh my, the flavor from the fresh roasted peaches added such an amazing depth of flavor to our usual cobbler. I also cut the sugar a bit and added vanilla stevia to the mix. It adds the extra sweetness and the hint of vanilla without the sugar calories.

Now, the cobbler…it was soooo good! The flour blend was perfect! This cobbler has the perfect custardy fruit filled bottom covered in a cakey topping. Served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream makes it a perfect summertime treat!

Gluten and Dairy Free Roasted Peach Cobbler | Bob's Red Mill

Gluten and Dairy Free Roasted Peach Cobbler

  • 2 large Peaches, quartered and sliced about 3 cups
  • 1 Tbsp Dairy Free Butter
  • 1 cup Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free 1-to-1 Flour
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp Baking Powder
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 1-1/4 cups Almond Milk
  • 2 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 20 drops Vanilla Stevia (or 4 tsp more Sugar)
  • 1 Tbsp Sugar, for topping

Preheat the oven to 375ºF.

Place the sliced peaches and butter in an 8 x 8 baking dish. Bake the peaches for 30 minutes, stirring once at 15 minutes.

In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Mix with a wire whisk. Next add the almond milk, apple cider vinegar and stevia to the flour mixture. Mix until just combined. Make sure the peaches are evenly distributed in the dish. Spray the sides of the baking dish with cooking spray to prevent the batter from sticking to the dish. Pour the batter over the roasted peaches and bake for 1 hour. Serve warm or cool.

NEW Gluten Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour {Giveaway}

by Cassidy Stockton in Contests, Gluten Free

Do you ever just wish someone would make gluten free baking easier? That there was a simple product swap that could replace wheat flour without having to keep 5 different flours and starches on hand? That you could just take the guesswork out of how much xanthan gum to use? Good news! We are excited to say that our newest addition to our gluten free product line can do just that.

Introducing…

Gluten Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour

Gluten Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour | Bob's Red Mill

endless possibilities, one easy solution

I think all of our gluten free products are winners, but this one is my new favorite. It’s so easy to use- just swap wheat flour with this blend cup for cup and follow the original recipe as instructed. You will bake some pretty stellar baked goods and tasters will be hard pressed to tell the difference. We even did some blind taste tests around with none the wiser. That’s a pretty good test, in my opinion.

This flour combines finely ground brown rice flour, sweet white rice flour, whole grain sorghum flour, potato starch, and tapioca flour with a touch of xanthan gum—just enough xanthan gum to create chewy cookies and springy muffins. The protein in the sorghum flour helps give baked goods an almost wheat-like texture and aids in browning, for those times you need a perfectly golden brown chocolate chip cookie.

We hope you will enjoy this new product as much as we do. To celebrate our newest addition, we’re giving away a package of this blend to five lucky winners. Follow the prompts below to enter. We’ll select five winners at random from all who enter by 11:59 pm on 7/6/14. We’re working to get this product on shelves as soon as possible, so if you don’t see it at your local store, ask them to bring it in. In the meantime, you can grab a bag at bobsredmill.com for $4.95.

Almond Butter and Berry Coulis Pancakes F

Almond Butter and Strawberry Coulis Pancakes

by Alisa Fleming in Featured Articles, Gluten Free, Recipes

Pancakes are one of those “perfect” foods in my book. They can be made thin like crepes or puffy like little cakes (my personal choice); they can be sweet or savory; they freeze well (yes, toaster pancakes!); they are easily made without dairy, gluten, or other top allergens (more forgiving than waffles); they are quick to make; and they can be dressed with an assortment of different toppings.

Almond Butter and Berry Coulis Pancakes | Bob's Red Mill

I recently had some fun coming up with new ways to serve my husband delicious stacks of pancakes using Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Pancake Mix. The beauty of a mix is it allows me more time to focus on the toppings, and since my husband eats gluten-free, I don’t have to worry about measuring a plethora of starches and flours. Of course, you can use your favorite Bob’s Red Mill pancake mix (I highly recommend Organic High Fiber and Organic 7 Grain, which are both made without dairy) if wheat isn’t an issue for you.

As for those toppings, all of the ideas I’ve tested thus far are sweet and wholesome, but there are some savory versions on the horizon. In the meantime, enjoy these easy dairy-free pancake topping recipes:

Cinnamon Peaches and Cream Pancakes (dairy-free and gluten-free)

Cinnamon Peaches n Creme Pancakes | Go Dairy Free

These cinnamon-spiked pancakes sandwich layers of vanilla coconut whip and are topped with a tasty fresh peach puree and some chopped peaches for good measure. Recipe here: http://www.godairyfree.org/recipes/cinnamon-peaches-and-cream-pancakes  

Chunky Monkey Pancakes (dairy-free and gluten-free)

Chunky Monkey Pancakes | Go Dairy Free

Displaying the magic of frozen pancakes (just pop them in the toaster!), this toppled stack has a chocolate drizzle (2 options), quick nutty syrup, sliced almonds or chopped walnuts, and diced bananas. Recipe here: http://www.godairyfree.org/recipes/chunky-monkey-pancakes

Almond Butter and Berry Coulis Pancakes | Bob's Red Mill

Almond Butter and Strawberry Coulis Pancakes (dairy-free and gluten-free)

The following recipe is a healthier, fresh riff on the traditional flavors of peanut butter and jelly.

Servings: 4 | Prep time: 20 minutes | Cooking time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:

Method:

  1. In a medium bowl, gently stir the strawberries with 1 tablespoon honey, until well-coated. Set aside to macerate for 20-30 minutes (or longer if making ahead).
  2. Reserve 1/4 cup of the chopped strawberries. Place the remaining chopped strawberries in your blender with the chia seeds. Puree until smooth. If needed, blend in additional sweetener (your choice of type). The amount you need will depend on the sweetness of your strawberries. For medium sweet berries, I add around 10 drops of vanilla stevia. Stir the reserved chopped strawberries into the puree, and let sit while you prepare the pancakes and almond butter.
  3. Make 1 batch of the pancakes (dollar-size), according to the directions.
  4. As the pancakes cook, whisk together the almond butter, coconut oil, and 2 teaspoons honey. Heat the mixture in the microwave for 15-20 seconds if it is too thick.
  5. Plate 1 pancake on each of 4 plates. Top with a little of the almond butter mixture, followed by a 2nd pancake, gently pressing down. Repeat with more almond butter mixture and another pancake. Top each stack with the chunky strawberry puree. Dollop with any remaining almond butter mixture.

Almond Choc Chip Cookies GF DF Paleo 1

NEW Natural Almond Meal + Almond Chocolate Chip Cookies {Giveaway}

by Cassidy Stockton in Featured Articles, Gluten Free, Recipes

We are pleased to launch a new, wholesome Natural Almond Meal for all of your baking needs. Whether you follow a paleo, grain-free, or gluten free diet or simply like using almond meal to add extra richness to your baking, this flour is a must-have.  Milled from whole almonds with their skin intact, this flour can be used in recipes for cookies, cakes, breads, pancakes and more! It even makes a wonderful low-carbohydrate coating for chicken, fish and other proteins.

Natural Almond Meal

The skins contribute a lovely caramel color to baked goods without affecting the flavor. And let me tell you, the flavor of almond meal is phenomenal. I can’t imagine anyone reading this hasn’t tried an almond, but if you’ve not baked with almond meal, it’s truly superb. You can replace up to 25% of the flour in your recipes with almond meal for a richer, more decadent baked good. Or, if you’re trying to watch carbs or gluten (for whatever reason), there are loads of fabulous recipes online now that use almond meal exclusively for everything under the sun.

Try these chocolate chip cookies for a real treat. This recipe is a great way to indulge without feeling guilty. I made these before a big trip last summer and they were perfect. They held up well, provided a punch of protein and a touch of sweetness while we slogged through airports and kept us from snacking on the over-priced junk food on the road. (P.S. I know the picture doesn’t exactly sell these cookies—they’re not lookers, but they are so good!)
