Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins, gluten- and nut-free

Finally, a food-packed gluten-free AND nut-free muffin. If you grind the pumpkin seeds roughly/incompletely, you get some nice bits of crunch and texture. These can also be made as banana chocolate chip muffins, by subbing cardamom for the ginger, using 4 bananas, and leaving out/reducing the pumpkin and applesauce. (You might also want to finely grind the pumpkin seeds in this case.) You can of course leave out the chocolate, but they do help get muffins get into little bellies. Make a big b...

Oatmeal pumpkin chocolate chip muffins

Here is another great gluten-free muffin for loading up the freezer! I have packed these about as full of food as I can manage, minimizing the amount of rice-based flour mix (which I do not, personally, consider ‘food’). Ingredients 1 1/2 cups Pamela’s Artisan Blend flour mix 3/4 cup gluten free oats, roughly chopped in spice grinder or blender 3/4 cup buckwheat flour 3/4 cup almond or hazelnut meal 2 T chia seeds 2 t baking soda 1 t cream of tartar 1/2+ t salt 1 1/2 t cinnamon 3/4 t nutmeg...

Chocolate Buttermilk Sourdough Cake

This moist and delicious cake is great plain, but an excellent excuse for frosting as well. My top recommendation is the secretly healthy/paleo/vegan chocolate avocado icing (which also doubles as an amazing chocolate mousse - you should try this) detailed below, or you could make a buttercream or coconut cream icing. I have been speculating about whether I could cream together honey, butter and shredded coconut to make a frosting. Ideas welcome! This recipe is based on the Basic Chocolate C...

Sourdough Coffee Cake

This recipe is adapted from the Sourdough King Cake recipe on the Sourdough Home site. If you don’t make it too sweet, it is lovely and satisfying for breakfast. Consider doubling the recipe and putting half the dough in the freezer after rising. I found the dough even silkier and easier to work with after freezing and thawing. Ingredients: 2 tablespoons butter 8 oz sour cream 3 tablespoons or 1.5 oz sugar 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 ice cube 3/8 cup or 3 oz active sourdough starter 1 egg 3 scant c...
