 A gluten-free version of my most famous brownie. Somehow, and perhaps it is the gluten free flour mix that suits the recipe, these are even more fudgy and chewy than the original recipe. Like the original these brownies nice crackly tops and do not require icing. I use a bulk food stores ‘gluten free all-purpose flour’ that contains rice and bean flours among other gluten-free elements. You can make your own mix (that suits you) or find a gluten free mix that appeals to your taste and dietary requirements. Some taste and perform better than others. The batter of this recipe isn’t luscious but once baked up, the brownies are fantastic.

This is a gorgeous, lofty, moist whole-wheat bread to start your new year and keep some of those diet resolutions.

These are my go-to cookie when I need a hunger-zapper, a touch of sweet, and rustic goodness. I make these small and freeze some but more often than not, I double up the dough and freeze that, baking off a few cookies when I need them.

 

Have a shorter name to name these fabulous, crusty topped moist-interior muffins? Doesn't matter - these have the goodness of applesauce, buttermilk, wheat germ, oat bran, wheat bran, and also offer precious little fat and only one egg (and make it an Omega 3 Egg if you please). These muffins are incredibly tasty, rustic, and good for you. They are also real appetite zappers. You can replace half the whole-wheat flour with kamut or spelt if you prefer.

I love pumpkin pie, sugar and spice and all things both nutritious and comforting. This bowl of hot cereal has it all. It reheats during the week for quick but staying breakfasts. If you have canned pumpkin on hand (maybe from making pumpkin muffins), it goes to a wonderful cause in this amazing oatmeal.

I think anytime is the right time for a soda bread, especially one with the goodness of pumpkin and spice. This recipe is easy and quick and you wind up with a gorgeous-hued giant rustic bread, fragrant with spice and bursting with plump raisins. Fresh or toasted, this is a soda bread that hits one out of the park.
 

A bit of prose from the village baker - my recipe for ailing spirits. From Love and Ordinary Things, Poems from the Wheat Field, Kitchen, Dance Floor and Heart.

Skinny Cookie, Part Deux. These are egg free, spicy, carrot enhanced, wonderful cookies. They are……a meal.The fresh ginger (which you think you will hate) is the magic touch.

I like my muffins rustic no matter what and I see them as carriers for nutrition. So I don’t mind scaling back on fat to make a muffin that is ‘skinnier’ and a storehouse of nutritional goodies. But taste is the first criterion. This muffin has it all! You can try this using Splenda if you want to avoid the sugar. You can can also substitute ½ cup of the white flour for white spelt or kamut flour. It will make for a heavier muffin but benefits from the ancient grains.

The skinny on these egg and butter free chocolate cookies is that they are ….healthy. Use Omega 3 eggs and hearty-healthy semi-sweet chocolate, with the other good things in this easy recipe and you might never by a bag of Mallomars again. These also freeze well and are simply good and filling. This is great when you want chocolate decadence and still want to feel noble. These are sprawling, chewy-crisp cookies that simply taste like super cookies – i.e. don’t tell people they are healthy or skinny or anything else but delicious. If you love these, you'll adore Carrot Cake Skinny Cookies in my cookbook, A Passion for Baking or Oatmeal Skinny cookies on this website.
