My favorite gluten free recipe books


If you want to collect gluten free recipe books, these are the books that I have used several times over the past eight years.

The first cookbook I ever bought was Incredible Edible Gluten-Free Food for Kids: 150 Family-Tested Recipes. I was in college and had little experience in cooking. This book is great because it has recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, and desserts.

On our honeymoon, my husband and I bought Gluten-Free Quick & Easy: From Prep to Plate Without the Fuss – 200+ Recipes for People with Food Sensitivities. Several of our favorite recipes have come from this book or been adapted from recipes in this book. We also bought Gluten-Free & Dairy-Free for the Frugal and Lazy Cook: 101 delicious recipes that are simple, inexpensive and safe for the gluten-intolerant! We enjoy several recipes from this book as well.

The gluten free sandwich bread at Whole Foods is my favorite store bought bread. But gluten free bread can be very expensive. So a few Christmases ago, my bought me Breadman TR875 2-Pound Breadmaker. I like this model because it has a gluten free cycle 🙂 I have also used my breadmaker for pizza dough. My favorite bread recipes come from this book: 125 Best Gluten-Free Bread Machine Recipes.

Another recipe book that I use is The Cooking Light Gluten-Free Cookbook: Simple Food Solutions for Everyday Meals. This one has several recipes for fish and has more of an international and gourmet flare.

Easy Peanut Butter Pancakes


Peanut butter pancakes

Ingredients :
1/2 cup buckwheat flour
1/2 cup brown rice flour
1/4 cup tapioca flour
2 cups soymilk
4 eggs
1/4 cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon sugar (optional)

Directions :
1. Mix eggs and soymilk in a large bowl.
2. Add flour to bowl and mix thoroughly (Any kind of flour will work. I always use whatever is in the house. I do recommend that 1/4 cup be a flour that thickens like tapioca).
3. Stir in peanut butter and optional sugar.
4. Spray griddle or frying pan.
5. Pour pancakes.  They are ready to flip when you see air bubbles.

This usually takes me about a half hour on a Sunday evening.  My husband eats them before work every morning.  It usually makes about 20, so he has plenty for the week.
