new adventures

i've been doing some new experiments over the past few days and have had success with 2 out of 3 recipes, so not too bad! :)

my first was with Whole Food's 365 Gluten Free Pizza Crust Mix.
I thought it would be nice for someone else to put all the various flours together for once, but i soon discovered that i still had to do a lot of work for it. Either way, I was impressed with the end results and would definitely recommend it. fairly easy to make in my lovely kitchen-aid and it makes two large pizzas (i froze the second half).

i used Ener-G's egg replacer since i was out of eggs, and it turned out quite well. i also used my favorite soy cheese, soya kaas mozzarella, some mushrooms and peppers, and made a tomato pesto sauce as well. i've since learned that soya kaas has casein in it, but they have another called vegi kaas which is supposed to be good as well. so for the mix i give it a 4/5 stars.

experiment #2-- the failure. i tried a recipe for apple quinoa muffins that i had found online since we still have so many apples from west virginia. they were okay, but left a weird aftertaste, so i said goodbye to them. lesson learned as well: quinoa flakes does not equal quinoa flour!

experiment #3- my favorite. i made karina's breakfast brownies, and i'll let the picture speak for itself... they were a hit :)
i actually stuck to the recipe and was really happy with the results. i used the quinoa, rice, and oat flour combo + tapioca starch as well as the egg replacer. next time agave ;) Highly recommend these!

Pin It Now!


  1. Yay! Glad you liked the Breakfast Brownies. Thanks for the shout- and thanks for the review of the Whole Foods pizza crust mix- we are trying it today, without eggs. ;)


  2. thanks for stopping by karina! DEFINITELY loved the breakfast brownies... let me know what you thought about the crust. i find the shocking white color of it probably the scariest part ;)
