A Series of Unsatisfying Results-Part 4

This is my very first experience making gluten-free cookies. These were good, just I wish they were a little more crunchy and less chewy. But from what I’ve read, that’s a common problem with gluten-free cookies.

The reason I made these, isn’t because I’m now eating gluten-free…it’s because I bought some coconut flour a while ago, thinking it would be fun to experiment with. Little did I know at the time, you can’t just substitute coconut flour for regular flour in recipes. So it’s been a bit tricky to use up.

I found several recipes online for guidance in making these. This is a small batch, simply because who wants a large batch of something they’re not sure they’re gonna like?

Quick Cornbread Muffins

These are pretty simple to make, even if you don’t have a stand mixer, you could mix the stuff by hand and it will still be easy.

If you like your cornbread quite sweet you could use a 1/2 a cup of raw honey instead of 1/3. The last ones I made I used 1/2 cup and felt it was too sweet.

You can try and substitute some of the butter for coconut oil if you want there to be less “unhealthy” fat. I haven’t tried this yet, so I’m not sure how it would turn out…but I would think you would be safe substituting half the butter with half coconut oil.

These go great with this Crock Pot White Beans recipe posted last week.

Homemade Pizza Dough

Pizza Dough I make this ahead of time. Divide it into 6 dough balls, put them in Ziplock bags and put them in the freezer till I need them. (6 dough balls will make 6 individual pizzas, if you want to make family pizzas just divide the dough into 2 dough balls.)

Of course I make this dough in the bread machine, why make a mess of the kitchen counters and use up extra time when you don’t have to? 😉

Homemade Bread Made Healthy

Homemade Bread

Making your own homemade bread instead of bread bought from the store, will not only help you eat less processed, healthier food, but will also save you a little money on a regular basis. You also have the added benefit of knowing exactly EVERYTHING that’s in it.

Seeing how I make bread now every week from fresh ground wheat berries, I thought I would share the recipe with you all.

The original recipe comes from the cookbook that came with my bread machine. I have modified it, so  it has a little less sodium, healthier fat (coconut oil mostly) and has a BIT of a firmer texture (Husband’s request due to him using it for sandwich bread for his work lunch most of the time.)
