This is a delicious gfcf, gluten free, family-friendly recipe! It is also (if you double check ingredients!) a wheat free, dairy free, soy free, egg free, tree nut free, peanut free, fish free, shellfish free, corn free, top 8 allergen free, and vegan recipe.
This is a variation on several recipes. It’s a good first birthday cake, because there are no eggs, nor other major allergens. It’s also pretty low in sugar, so you could eat it for breakfast without much guilt!
- 1.5 cups grated carrot, loosely packed (or use a food processor to just mush it)
- 1 cup sugar (type is up to you)
and let sit for 15 min
- 1 1/2 cups gf flour mix + 1 tsp xanthan or guar gum (or just 1 1/2 cups wheat flour)
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp allspice
- 1/3 cup oil
- 1/3 cup water
- 1 tsp cider vinegar
Mix together dry ingredients with a whisk. Add wet ingredients and dry to the carrot/sugar mix.
Pour into a bundt cake pan or a 8×8 pan (well greased). bake for 40 min at 350. let cool and eat as is or with confectioner’s sugar dusted on top.
Before I needed to go gluten-free, one of the things I loved most was snacking on granola. I never added milk (ick, mushy!) or yogurt (ick, yogurt!), but granola straight from the bag is even better than trail mix. And I love trail mix. Back in the day, I even tried (unsuccessfully) to make granola from scratch. Granola is a delicious way of getting protein, sugar for energy, and dried fruit into you early in the morning before the caffeine kicks in, or as a snack that’s much healthier than most other convenient snacks (though trail mix is good for that, too). Bakery on Main GF Granola is a store-bought alternative to making it yourself.
