Gluten Free Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Okay so winter is back. And, in full swing. Mother Nature teased Saskatoon a couple of weeks ago with temperatures on the plus side and I had visions of dancing around in shorts and tank tops. Sadly, it was just a teaser and winter is back with snow and all. Oh well, it’s the first week of February and I suppose the weather could be worse right? I mean we could have the snow that Atlantic Canada does … yeah, maybe I’ll just keep my mouth shut about the weather!

I have been diligently working on a new cookie recipe in my kitchen. My kids love it when I work on new recipes. What I love most about my kids is that they are brutally honest. I know that they will tell me the truth whether or not I want to hear it. So, if the first and second or maybe even third batch of a recipe needed tweaking, they’d let me know loud and clear. Well, after two batches, I got the thumbs up from not only kiddies, but the hubby as well. And, I must say these cookies are FANTASTIC. They honestly are super good and like my hubby said I can’t even tell they are gluten free! I’ve had some gluten free baking that is gritty and overly crumbly. And, well, lack lustre in taste. But, these cookies are none of those things. They are simply delicious. They are moist, full of flavour and have the perfect amount of crumble to them. I know that it’s been a long time since I’ve had a gluten cookie, so that’s why I enlisted my hubby into the taste test. And, I know if I passed with the hubby and the kids, well then I’m good to share it with all of you. These cookies are delicious fresh out of the oven and will keep for a couple of days on the counter in an air tight container. Otherwise, wait till the cookies have cooled completely and freeze them. Just pop them out of the freezer as needed. This recipe will make about 2 and a half dozen, so you’ll have plenty to share or umm, plenty to eat yourself!

As always, give them a whirl and let me know how they turned out for you! Find me on Facebook or Twitter or simply leave a comment below!

Preheat your oven to 350 F.  In a medium sized mixing bowl combine the following:

2 1/4 cups Jenny’s All Purpose Gluten Free Flour*

1/4 tsp xanthan gum

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

2 cups Gluten Free Certified Rolled Oats (I use Only Oats) 

Only Oats Gluten-Free Rolled Oats, 1 Kg (Grocery)


New From: CDN$ 10.99 In Stock
Used from: Out of Stock

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp all spice

Mix well and set aside.

DSC_2181

In the bowl of your mixer combine:

3/4 cup Earth Balance Soy Free Spread

1 1/4 brown sugar, packed

Mix until well incorporated and mixture appears fluffy.

DSC_2176

Next add:

2 large eggs

1 tsp vanilla extract

DSC_2177

Mix until just combined. Then slowly add the  dry ingredients to the bowl while your mixer is on low speed. Be sure to scrape the sides of the bowl often to ensure even mixing. But, be careful to not over mix the cookie dough! Next, using a spatula, fold in:

1 cup raisins

DSC_2185

Roll batter into small balls and place on a parchement lined baking sheet. (This can be the tricky part. I like to coat my hands in Earth Balance Soy Free Spread so the cookie batter doesn’t stick to my hands while I am rolling the balls) Do not flatten the balls! Bake at 350 F for 8-10 minutes. (You will know your cookies are done if the bottoms are a light golden brown). Remove from oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Like I said earlier, once cooled completely store these in an airtight container on the counter for up to a couple of days or freeze to enjoy them later!

Enjoy with your favourite glass of dairy free milk and you’ve got the perfect combo to put a smile on your kiddo’s face! (or your own!)

A few weeks ago I shared some of my 2015 resolutions. So far, I am happy to say that I’ve stuck to each one of those. Isn’t it funny how some people make resolutions for one thing or another, not really committing to them, and by the second week in, it’s already over. If there’s one thing I’ve learned through my life it’s that if you are seeking change in your life, you have to want it. You have to believe it. You have to live it each day. Commit to it and move forward. But, it can be a struggle each day to stick with that commitment. I have also learned this. I hope you’ve stuck with your New Years resolutions and continue to live them each day!

When I first committed to being gluten free, I had no idea what was in store for my family. I didn’t know what was in store for the boy. But, after watching him for 2 and a 1/2 years I knew that something needed to change. So for us, going gluten free was the only option. We watched in amazement as we saw him light up. It was like he came out of his shell. He started sleeping. His constant tummy issues stopped. Those nasty black circles under his eyes disappeared. His moods stabilized and he became himself. We were elated that changing something as simple as his diet could unlock his door. That was just the beginning for the boy and we’ve never looked back. When I decided to commit to being gluten free I had no idea that the results for me would be so positive as well. Gluten makes us sick. Period. We’ve had a few incidences where the boy has been ‘glutened’ and a close family member watched him change very quickly. He became very irrational, aggressive, defiant, and that’s just the personality changes. He had all sorts of tummy trouble as well. He was miserable. It was like he was a different child completely. Over time I’ve gotten better at navigating situations so as to avoid those instances of being ‘glutened’. We’ve taught him to understand why he’s gluten free and that being different from other kids, doesn’t change a thing. It just means that Mommy or Daddy have to do a bit of leg work ahead of time. He’s been in situations where he didn’t get a cupcake when 22 other kids did and I’m proud to say that even though there were a few tears, he was okay with it. I mean, don’t get me wrong, he’s 6 and it’s hard to completely understand it all, but I am very proud of him for being so grown up. We are still working with the girl but she too understands why being gluten free is just our way of life.

Finding recipes to share with your family can be difficult when you’re told to cut gluten from your diet for one reason or another.  It can be absolutely intimidating to change something so drastic. Let’s face it, there’s gluten in everything. Literally. It’s hiding in places that it shouldn’t! But, when it’s keeping you healthy, it’s a no-brainer. For us, including dairy and soy, really limits our options when it comes to pre-packaged foods at the grocery store. Not to mention, the cost. It’s tough enough to feed a family of four these days, let alone a family of four that is gluten, dairy and soy free! I have learned that foods made from scratch are not only better tasting, but better for you. All of our meals are made this way. And, I find comfort knowing that I know exactly what goes into my kids’ mouths each day. And, yes, not all of it is super healthy, but they’re still kids right? And every kid deserves to be a kid. That’s why I’m sharing my story with the world. So every kid, gluten free kiddies included, can just be kids.

This week’s recipe is amazing. The reason that I love it so much is that it is something special that I can create for my family and both the boy and the girl can’t get enough of these. It’s reserved for special days. I served this Christmas morning alongside gluten free breakfast sausage, fresh fruit and of course coffee and juice. It’s a simple recipe, but soooo delicious. I like to use coconut milk to give the french toast a slightly sweet flavour, but use whatever non dairy milk is your favourite. If you’re looking for that special breakfast or brunch idea that will wow your guests or family, then look no further. This recipe is for you!

Gluten Free Dairy Free French Toast

In a small mixing bowl combine the following:

2 eggs

2/3 cup Coconut milk (or your favourite non-dairy milk)

1/4 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

1 tsp vanilla extract

Beat together until well mixed. Set mixture aside.

Using Jenny’s Glorious Gluten Free Bread, soak each piece of sliced bread into the milk mixture. Cook on medium heat until french toast becomes a nice light brown color, flip and cook on the opposite side.

 DSC_2002Repeat until all your milk mixture is gone.

Top with fresh fruit, syrup, honey, jam or whatever floats your boat! Enjoy!

Here’s to 2015

Happy New Year!

Wow … what a year 2014 was! Is it just me, but does a year seem to fly by for everyone out there? Now that I have two very busy kids, and well, a very busy life, I realize that a year is not a long time at all. Sometimes I wish I could freeze time. Instead, I have learned to live each moment of each day. I have learned to appreciate what I’ve got in front of me right now and not to always want something more. That’s a tough one … the wanting part. But, I try to keep my life in perspective each day and I realize that always wanting something more or different teaches you to not appreciate … life. Everyday when I tuck my kiddies in at night, I look at them and I tell them I love you. Sometimes I’m that creepy Mom who sneaks into their rooms after they’re asleep and I sit there on the edge of the bed and just watch them sleep. Taking this time reminds me of how blessed I am to have them as my children. Even though there are times during the day, when the screaming is happening, or the arguing is intense between them, I am so thankful that we have them. I am blessed to have this super tight family. We love each other and hubby and I do our best to teach our children to love and respect each other. Yes, somedays the lesson is harder to teach than others, but we do our best! So, watching them sleep at night is my moment where I can just appreciate what I’ve got, right in front of me. I love being that creepy Mom.

2014 was a big year for me. It’s been almost a year that I decided to commit to this blog. I decided that, perhaps, I had something to share with the world. My thought was if I could just help one family, one little boy or little girl to unlock their door, like we did with our boy, then I had something I needed to say. You see, our journey to being gluten free, dairy free and soy free wasn’t an easy one. It took a long time to get here and over the years I think I’ve come up with a few tricks to make our life easier and better that have allowed us to become so incredibly happy. Looking back on our pre-allergen free life I realized that I lived day to day, barely having enough energy to make it through each one. I was exhausted mentally, physically and emotionally. Until one day I met this incredible woman, my naturopath. She actually looked at me when I talked about our troubles with the boy and she actually listened. Yes, she actually listened to what I was saying and she helped. And, for the first time I felt like I wasn’t crazy. There was something wrong with my beautiful boy. And, so our journey began. After committing to sharing our story through this blog, I feel like I’m finally giving back. (If you want to read more about how we came to be gluten free, dairy free and soy free, take a peek at the Our Story section of our blog)

I also committed to being a better me. You see, it’s taken me a long time, but I realize that if I’m not 100% feeling good, then it really affects every part of my life. Like I said, several years ago I committed to being gluten free. That was one the best decisions that I have ever made for me. I can’t explain the difference in how I feel, in my body, in my attitude. etc. I guess you could say I’m still me, just a much better version of me. In 2014, I also committed to working out everyday. I wanted to push my body and really, really feel good. I’ve tried all kinds of different routines. I’ve used those DVD workouts, started running, and well, just about everything else. I would like to say I’ve tried getting a gym membership, but lets be real, I have two kids under 6 and a hubby who’s away 18 days a month. That’s not gonna happen. But, in the fall I discovered this amazing duo of women. Yes, women who are both Moms, just like me! They’ve developed this insanely amazing workout plan that is 12 minutes of high intensity workout. It is simply incredible! Who doesn’t have 12 minutes to spare each day? But, a fair warning for you, those 12 minutes are killer. They are a really, really great killer though. When I’m done, I feel like I’ve just run a marathon. I’m exhausted. But, I feel so incredible for doing it. These 12 minute workouts have really changed how I look at working out. What I love the most about these workouts is that I’m not bored and I’m always challenging myself. Also, I’m at home, with my kiddies playing beside me and I’ve gotten a better workout than if I had called a sitter to watch my kids, driven 20 minutes to the gym and spent most of my time hopping from one machine to the next. I look forward to my email each day with a link to the daily workout. I love the fact that these two amazing women are there right there with me, huffing and puffing alongside me. I can see so many changes in my body. After each workout I feel like I could kick butt. And, that’s what I want to teach my kids, especially the girl. Well, not the kicking butt part, but I want to teach her that taking care of your body, being the best you, is an incredible feeling. I want to teach her that being strong, healthy and fit is beautiful. There are so many negative body images out there for girls and I want to teach my girl that it doesn’t matter what size you are. What matters is how you feel, how you treat your body and that being healthy is so incredibly important. Just today, while I was doing my 12 minutes, she was sitting beside me singing along to her Frozen soundtrack (yes, I too have one of those Frozen obsessed little girls!), watching me and giving me a high five after each interval. She even tried a few moves with me, but lets be real, Frozen trumps pretty much every thing else in the life of a 4 year old. I can’t say enough good things about these 12 minute high intensity workouts. I simply love them. Check them out for yourselves …. HIIT It Kelowna. These two women are truly an inspiration of what you can do if you commit to something and then follow through. Come on, I dare you, take the challenge with me and let’s see what we can do with 12 minutes a day!

Here are a few of my commitments for this New Year. In 2015, I am committing to carrying on with this blog. I want to bring you recipes that are not only gluten free, dairy free and soy free, but incredibly delicious and affordable. I am going to continue to commit to getting me fit. I will treat my body with love and respect and I will continue to teach my children to do the same. I will commit to always being the best Mommy and wife I can be, my hubby and kids deserve that. And, on a side note, I am committing to growing out this super cute, super short pixie cut (I am feeling like a need a change!). That in itself will be a challenge, growing out your hair takes willpower people! So, come on, let’s get 2015 started!

What are you going to commit to in 2015? Come along with me on my gluten free, dairy free, soy free journey and see what 2015 can bring you!

 

Love,

Jenny

 

Grandma’s Gluten Free Turkey Stuffing

Christmas is just around the corner. Literally. I can’t believe it. I’ve been running around the last couple of days like crazy trying to get my last minute stuff done. I don’t know why, but this year I’ve been behind since the beginning of December. Perhaps it’s hubby’s fault. Yeah, it’s his fault! (I’m just kidding honey!) He’s been away for work and back and now he’s away again. This whole thing of him being gone for a 4 or 5 days at a time is a little difficult to manage at times. But, I’m doing my best. And, it seems around Christmas time there is just extra stuff to do. Like holiday shopping and wrapping. Not to mention, kids’ Christmas concerts, parties and gatherings. Oh yeah, and let us not forget, decorating, cleaning house and oh yeah, baking?!?! I always ask myself why do I put so much pressure on myself to get everything done? Seriously, who’s going to know if I don’t? Just me. Right? Just me. Why is it that women just want things perfect for large holiday gatherings? Seriously, why do we always put so much pressure on ourselves? I know that every woman around me is the same. Always wanting things to be perfect, but in reality, who’s gonna know the difference? I know that I just want my little family to be together for the holidays, not to have a perfectly decorated house, a meal made to perfection or anything else. I just want to be together. So, whatever gets done, gets done I guess and whatever doesn’t, well, that’s okay too. I will be hosting Christmas dinner this year and I know that even though the days leading up to Christmas are super busy, I will make a point to carve out some time to spend with my family.

With all that being said, here’s one recipe that I will be sure to include on my Christmas dinner menu. Stuffing. What’s better than turkey? How about the stuffing inside of the turkey? For me, turkey stuffing is my favourite part of any turkey. I hate to admit this, but I could probably sit down and just eat a plate of stuffing. Okay, gross … I know, right? But for me, a turkey without stuffing is just plain wrong. I’ve only cooked a turkey without stuffing once in my life and it’s something that I vowed I would never do again. It was just plain, plain. I swear the turkey meat was even flavourless without it. Being gluten free can be a challenge over the holidays, but it doesn’t have to be. You don’t have to give up any of the good stuff over the holidays, you just have to maybe put a little more thought and effort into preparing some of your favourite dishes. For us, converting this turkey stuffing to gluten free, dairy free and soy free was an absolute must. There wasn’t an option. This recipe comes from my Mom. Like I’ve said in previous posts, my Mom was an amazing cook growing up. In fact, she still is. Anytime I get invited over to her house for dinner, I always accept. No questions asked. My kiddies love Grandma’s cooking as well. I have seen her make this recipe countless times growing up and even to this day, she still gets out this old tattered piece of paper to make it. Of course, now that she’s gluten free as well, there have been a few substitutions. But, that same delicious, moist stuffing remains unchanged. It is the best part of any turkey meal. Add this to your holiday menu and let me know how it turned out for you!

Grandma’s Gluten Free Turkey Stuffing 

2 cups potato, cooked, mashed and cooled ( I like to cook my potatoes the night before and store them in the fridge until ready to use)

1 cup gluten free bread crumbs (I use my Glorious Gluten Free Bread and lightly toast them in the oven)

1/4 cup  bacon, cut into small pieces (ensure whatever brand you use, it’s gluten free)

2 tsp chopped yellow onion

1/4 cup Earth Balance Soy Free Spread

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp black pepper

1/2 tsp ground sage

1 egg

1 lb ground turkey (or ground beef)

Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. Once your ingredients are well mixed in your bowl you can begin stuffing your turkey. Ensure you close up your turkey well so the stuffing stays inside your turkey while cooking. Cook your turkey according to package directions on your turkey. Baste your turkey while it’s roasting to ensure that the stuffing remains moist inside the cavity. Serve and enjoy with your holiday meal!

Jenny

Jenny’s Gluten, Dairy & Soy Free Chocolate Chunk Cookies

We’re already a week into December and I’m still trying to get things done. The first order of business should be to get my shopping done, but sadly I keep procrastinating. In past years, I’d be at least 70% done by now, but this year I am having a hard time getting started. I do about 80% of my shopping online, which should make me want to do it even earlier, considering shipping time and costs and all. Hubby and I have agreed to take a new approach to Christmas this year. We’ve decided to get back to what Christmas really means and to not go overboard on Christmas gifts for our children. It’s an easy thing to do, going overboard. So, this year I found something on Pinterest (yes, I totally love Pinterest!) that would help me to really narrow down my gift giving – not like I don’t love giving to my children, but Christmas has become so commercialized and I want them to understand what it’s supposed to be about. I had them fill out a letter saying what they want, what they need, what they’ll wear and what they’ll read. A little difficult for a four year old, but I helped her out quite a bit. The boy loved doing it and it was really a challenge for him to come up for a couple of things that he really wants instead of listing off a thousand toys that would be just forgotten about anyway. Our kids are blessed to have toys, games and books already, and we’re trying to teach them that there are children out there that don’t have those things, let alone food, clothing and shelter. It’s tough for a child to understand all the complicated aspects of life, but we’re trying to teach them this lesson. So instead of going over the top with our kids we will be giving less to our own kids and then giving to those less fortunate.  As the old saying goes It’s far better to give than to receive. So, hopefully at the end of this Christmas season our kids will understand to be grateful for the things they have instead of always wanting and asking for more. And, as adults it’s just as important for us to remember that as well. That being said, I’m sure that my shopping will come together in good time and I’ll still have plenty of time to just enjoy the season with family and friends. But, really, let’s be honest I’d better hurry up!

Christmas is my favourite time of year and every year I spend hours baking up some gluten, dairy and soy free goodies for my family and friends to share. I hope to be able to share a few of my favourites with you in future posts, but today’s recipe is great year round. What kid or adult out there doesn’t love a soft chocolate chip cookie? My kids love these cookies. What I love about them is that they are the perfect texture, they freeze easily and no one can tell the difference from cookies made with wheat flour. And, to top it all off, they are easy to make. So give these cookies a whirl … your gluten free kid or kid at heart will love them, I promise!
