Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Teff Cookies

February 3, 2015

This recipe is also adjustable to be vegan; I am just a bit too much of a frugal MacDutchgirl to go around buying up maple syrup all the time out of season.


  • 1 1/2 cups teff flour (Bulk Barn yeeeah)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup honey (this can be switched with maple syrup to make the cookies vegan)
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, in liquid form
  • 1 teaspoon gfree vanilla extract
  • 1 cup creamy UNSWEETENED peanut butter

Gluten-free Apple-Cinnamon Teff Pancakes

November 10, 2014

Hello duckies. I come to you with yet another pancake recipe. Wait don’t go! Have I spouted off at you yet about the marvels of teff flour? That it’s gluten-free, pretty much guaranteed gmo-free, incredibly delicious and easy to bake with?

This recipe, which I yoinked and modified from Nourishing Meals, makes about ten good-size, FLUFFY pancakes. And they’re filling – I ate two in one sitting and was pretty stuffed; good news in that they refrigerate very well. I ate these for about a week.

There is no such thing as too much applesauce.

Dry Ingredients:
  • 2 cups dark brown teff flour
  • 1/2 cup corn starch / fine yellow corn flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon (or liberal dash) salt
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon

Wet Ingredients:
  • 2 cups coconut (or other) milk
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons melted virgin coconut oil
  • 3 tablespoons honey

Gluten-free Butternut Squash Lasagne

November 8, 2014


Seriously though. This is about 6 servings, takes 45 minutes to prep and 6 hours to cook – but since it’s the slow-cooker, that’s 6 hours to fart around on Tumblr. I mean, do homework.

On the Precious, we swears it.

I swear there are green things in there.


  • 1 cup mini carrots, chopped
  • 1/2 a yellow onion, diced
  • 2 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 1-2 cups of kale
  • 1/2 a green pepper, diced
  • 1 pound of ground beef
  • 1/2 a tomato
  • 1/3 a jar of pasta sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • basil, oregano, pepper, salt – about a tsp of each
  • 1 butternut squash

Dutch Stampot, or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Mash the Veggies

October 15, 2014

Haha, kidding, I didn’t learn anything – I’ve known how to make this for years. It’s an easy, healthy go-to meal that doesn’t take long to prepare and will leave you filled up and with lots of leftovers.

I would say this yields at least four servings, maybe more depending on how much of each ingredient you add. Prep time is about 5 minutes (depending on how good you are at peeling). Cook time is about 15 minutes.

Cooked chicken as a side is optional


A note, here: adjust quantities up or down to your liking. I’ll give you my ratios as I used them in this recipe, but really, you can do whatever and it will turn out fine, I promise.

  • 6 small yellow flesh potatoes
  • one large sweet potato
  • one cup of baby carrots, chopped (or one big carrot, chopped)
  • two cups of spinach, fresh or frozen
  • one onion, chopped
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • pepper and salt to taste

Slow-cooker gluten-free banana bread: a lesson in failure

October 13, 2014

This recipe is also paleo. This will make…. about 6-8 servings? For every recipe that turns out just right, there are a dozen failures that, like red-headed step-children*, bloggers sweep under the rug. I’m chronicling this one because it was such a spectacular failure, and took literally twelve hours to come to its disastrous completion. And I still ate it.


it tasted of failure and burnt bananas
