Gluten-Free Pancakes With Homemade Apple Jam

Gluten-Free Pancakes With Homemade Apple Jam

The recipe for these yummy Gluten-Free Pancakes With Homemade Apple Jam is a fall favorite in our house and Apple Jam is a delicious, easy and healthy way to use the apples from the Orchard, because, let’s face it If you went apple picking you have enough overpriced apples to feed the entire neighborhood! Am I right? 🙂
This recipe is low in sugar and made with simple ingredients like cinnamon and vanilla so you can skip the unhealthy ingredients of store bought jam and still enjoy a deliciously sweet and flavorful apple jam!
For the blog post, I added an easy Gluten-Free Pancake recipe that goes really well with the jam but feel free to enjoy it with crackers, gf bread, and desserts! This year I doubled the ingredients and made an extra batch to share with friends and keep in the fridge for later.
Joe and I like to add Apple Jam to our cheese plates! A little sweetness goes great with sharp cheese! Have you guys tried it?
Anyway, go get those apples ready for some homemade apple jam! The recipe is below. xo

Ingredients

Apple Jam

3 lbs of organic apples, peeled, cored and sliced

1 ½ cup water

3 cups coconut palm sugar ¾ tsp cinnamon

¼ tsp ground cloves

 

Gluten-Free Pancakes

1 1/3 cup gluten-free all-purpose flour

1 tbsp monk fruit sweetener

1 tsp baking powder

½ tsp baking soda

¼ tsp cinnamon

1/8 tsp Himalayan salt

½ tsp vanilla extract

2 tbsp ghee, melted

2 eggs

Apple Jam – In a large sauce pan over medium heat, combine the apples and water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and let apples simmer until soft, 20-30min. Carefully transfer the cooked apples to a blender and puree. Add pureed apples, sugar, cinnamon and cloves to a clean sauce pan over medium heat and bring to a boil stirring consistently until the mix thickens. Remove from heat and let cool.

Gluten-Free Pancakes – In a large mixing bowl combine flour, monk fruit sweetener, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. In another mixing bowl combine vanilla extract, melted ghee and eggs. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix using an electric mixer. Pour small amounts of batter onto a greased skillet over medium heat. Cook 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Repeat steps with remaining batter.

White Bean Dip (vegan, gf)

White Bean Dip (vegan, gf)

Happy Thursday! How are the kids adjusting to the new school schedule? More importantly, how are YOU adjusting? We are slowly getting back into the swing of things.

As you know, Caro is in school longer hours which means I now meal prep for her too. Fresh fruit cups, veggies slices, and single serving smoothie packs are some of our favorites.

Another quick meal prep idea is this White Bean Dip. Best part? It’s impossible to mess up, creamy
and so flavorful. Plus it’s packed with protein and healthy fat which helps keep us full longer.

Double the recipe to make a big batch and store it in the fridge for 3-4 days. Feel free to skip the cilantro and substitute for fresh parsley!

Let us know what you think by sharing your comments and pictures on social media @ourflipsidelife and tagging us #ourflipsidelife

Ingredients

1 (15oz) can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed

2 garlic cloves, minced

¼ cup onion, chopped

¼ cup olive oil

¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped

Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Place the beans in a food processor and puree until smooth. Set aside.
  2. Heat a pan over medium heat. Once hot, add the olive oil, garlic, and onions and sauté until the garlic is golden brown and the onions are translucent
  3. Add the bean puree and chopped cilantro into the pan stirring frequently for 1-2min until all the ingredients are combined. Season with salt and pepper
  4. Remove from heat and transfer to a serving bowl
  5. Top with chopped veggies and more cilantro (optional)
  6. Serve hot (or at room temp) with crackers, assorted vegetables, tortilla chips, or toasted GF bread!

 

PS – those delicious crackers you see in the back are Jilz Gluten Free Tuscan Crackerz (Lemon and Herbs) and they are AH-Mazing!

Healthy Gluten Free Blueberry Muffins

Healthy Gluten Free Blueberry Muffins

Healthy Gluten Free Blueberry Muffins are here!

It’s incredible how fast the summer came and went, no? We had an action-packed summer. We took Caro to Sesame Place (bless your heart if you’ve gone more than once, btw), Philly, the Coney Island Aquarium, she was all over the place. She had so much fun you’d think she’d reward us with NO MORE TEMPER TANTRUMS, right? Nope…still happening!

Anyway, NYC Schools start classes today and we want to wish all the littles (and not so littles) a happy and successful year! GOOD LUCK!

Joe is dropping Caro off at school today. Unfortunately, I have to miss her first day and head to work. Huge *sigh* #thestrugglesofworkingparents – it’s days like today that I wish I had more flexibility in my schedule but those days will come!

Don’t worry this isn’t turning into a sad post, HA! It’s quite the opposite – it’s a happy post b/c I get to share this AMAZING recipe with you! 🙂

I made these DE-LICIOUS, Healthy and Gluten Free Blueberry Muffins over the weekend and froze them. Thawed them out yesterday and boom…they were fresher than fresh this AM! I packed one in Caro’s lunch box, Joe had a few and I took some to work – everybody wins!

They are the perfect amount of sweet without being too sweet, healthy and most importantly, easy to make! We hope you like them.

BTW – how did you guys like our last post? Were the recipes helpful? Have you made them? if so, don’t forget to share your thoughts, comments, and pictures if you have them by tagging us on INSTAGRAM or FACEBOOK

4 Breakfast Flips For Back to School

4 Breakfast Flips For Back to School

Raise your hand if you’re fresh out of ideas on what to make for breakfast before the littles head back to school next week! I totally hear you and came to help! Because let’s face it, we are all on the same boat!

Real TALK! Depending on Caro’s mood (she’s moody now, guys) she’ll either have an impressive bowl of lentils, veggies, and rice or dairy free chocolate chips and a yogurt…NOTHING ELSE! There’s no in between and because there is no in-between I need to make sure she has a healthy, hearty breakfast that keeps her full and alert just in case lunch isn’t as successful as I planned.

I rounded up four of her favorite breakfast recipes, recipes I know she loves and gets excited about and gave them a tweak! BOOM – one less thing to worry about during the most stressful week of the year!

These recipes are my go-to and I’m here to SHARE them with YOU!

Remember to plan ahead, and if time allows, get them excited to help you in the kitchen.

Good luck, guys! We GOT THIS!

 

 

1.Vegan Banana Chocolate Chip Bars

Guys! This recipe is F (yup I dropped the F bomb) amazing. I always share it with my co-workers, my friends, my neighbors. People ask me for this recipe all the time. It’s GOOD and FILLING! Best part? It’s dairy FREE! Store leftovers in an airtight container and save them for afternoon snacks later in the week, or take some to work if you haven’t already inhaled ½ the batch! 🙂

You can also add nuts (if the school isn’t a NUT free school, super important) or ¼ cup hemp or chia seeds if your kids tolerate chia seeds. Use this recipe to sneak in some seeds or healthy fats!

2. Gluten Free Double Chocolate Pancakes

Holy Moly THESE pancakes are EVERYTHING! Light, fluffy, moist, not too sweet, PERFECTION! Not gonna lie, these take a little more time than the other recipes on this list but not by very much. I suggest making them on a Sunday and saving 1/2 the batter for Monday or saving this recipe for a morning when you have a little more time (if that’s even possible?)

These pancakes are the perfect example of how eating healthy CAN be delicious! Can’t wait for you to try!

 

 

3. Fluffy Gluten Free Pancakes

If it ain’t broke DON’T FIX IT. Aka – don’t spend hours searching new recipes when you can add fun ingredients to recipes you already know they love. I’ve shared a few versions of this recipe and each time I added a new ingredient. My goal is to get Carolina excited about a healthy breakfast that will give the energy she needs to go on with her business (whatever important business 3-year-olds have these days)

Ok, so here I added ¼ cup dye-free sprinkles to the mix before cooking, then a few more sprinkles before serving and done! You can also add dairy-free chocolate chips. Note: I tend to skip the maple syrup when I add chocolate chips or add fewer chocolate chips if they MUST have the syrup. Chopped berries? Hemp seeds? Anything goes. This recipe is almost impossible to mess up. Try it!

4. Dairy-Free Oatmeal Bars

This recipe is loosely adapted from Bob’s Red Mill (HEY, BOB!). I love it and share it with you because it’s a great breakfast idea for the entire family. It’s basically a bowl of oatmeal on-the-go because let’s face it, hot oatmeal is great and everything but gets boring, who’s with me?

Don’t care or like preserve? Skip it, we don’t judge! Drizzle a little honey instead. Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients
1/2 cup ghee, melted
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup gluten-free oat flour
1 cup gluten-free rolled oats
1/2 cup coconut palm sugar
1 tsp arrowroot powder
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp lemon zest
1/2 tsp Sea Salt
2/3 cup naturally sweetened preserve (optional)

Instructions
Preheat oven to 375°F. Grease an 8x8-inch baking pan. In a medium bowl, combine ghee and vanilla extract. Stir in flour, oats, sugar, arrowroot powder, baking powder, lemon zest and salt until combined. Press mixture into bottom of baking pan. Evenly spread homemade preserve on top and bake, 20-25 min. Let cool before cutting into bars and serving.

Note: Refrigerate for up to 2hrs for a firmer consistency.
