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.

Light, Cakey Brownies (GF)

Light, Cakey Brownies (GF)

Do you prefer a Fudgy Brownie or a Light, Cakey Brownie? I choose cakey and Joe LOVES Fudgy with…wait for it….walnuts (if you follow me on Instagram I talk about Joe’s walnut obsession quite a bit).

Brownies are cool and all but sometimes it’s just too much – too dense and too much chocolate. I know, I know most people will think I’m crazy but it’s how I feel, mmk? 🙂
SOOO I developed the recipe for these Light and Cakey Brownies hoping Joe would change his mind and it worked. He said “these are delicious but you know what’s missing…WALNUTS!” *sigh! Noted for next time, Joe!
Made with natural ingredients like cassava flour (a gluten-free alternative to all-purpose flour) and coconut palm sugar, these little gems make the perfect dessert or snack. Plus they’re better-for-you and insanely delicious.

Ingredients

1 stick grass-fed unsalted butter

1 cup coconut palm sugar

3 eggs

½ cup cocoa powder

1 tsp instant coffee

½  tsp baking powder

½ cup semi-sweet dark chocolate chips, melted

¾  cup cassava flour

¼  tsp xanthan gum

¼ tsp sea salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 ºF and grease a brownie pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter until butter starts bubbling. Remove from heat and transfer to a mixing bowl.
  3. Combine the melted butter with coconut palm sugar and mix using a hand mixer until well combined. Set aside.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, whisk the eggs. Add cocoa powder, coffee, and baking powder to the egg mixture and combine. Add the melted chocolate and combine.
  5. Add the butter mixture to the egg mixture and combine until you get a smooth batter.
  6. Sift together the cassava flour, xanthan gum, and salt and fold into the batter.
  7. Transfer batter to brownie pan and bake, 20 -25min or until a toothpick inserted comes out mostly clean.
  8. Remove from the oven and let cool before serving.
  9. Cut into squares and enjoy!

So now tell me, are you Fudgy? Or Cakey? 🙂

Easy, Kid-Friendly Tahini Cookies! Vegan, GF

Easy, Kid-Friendly Tahini Cookies! Vegan, GF

It’s Summertime which means the kids are in and out of camp and spending more time at home. I like to keep Caro busy when she’s home. Sometimes we paint or have play dates in the park. Other times we bake healthy desserts like these vegan, gluten-free Tahini Cookies made with simple ingredients like toasted sesame seeds, coconut palm sugar, and oat flour. My mom, Nannette, was in town when we worked on this recipe. It’s a fun, easy way to get the kids (and adults) in the kitchen and interested in healthy baking.

Our friends at MINI MAGAZINE loved the recipe and we hope you love it too! Happy Baking!

Ingredients

¾ cup tahini

1 cup date syrup (or maple syrup)

½ tsp sea salt

2 tsp vanilla extract

2 cup gluten-free oat flour

Toasted sesame seeds (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease 2 baking sheets or line with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Add tahini, date syrup, salt, and vanilla extract to a small saucepan over medium heat. Heat for a few minutes while stirring frequently until the ingredients are well combined. Remove mixture from heat and let cool, 10-15min.
  3. Transfer the tahini mixture to a large mixing bowl, add the oat flour and mix until a rough dough forms (You might need to use your hands for this)
  4. Roll 1-2 tbsp of dough using the palms of your hands then flatten slightly
  5. Place cookie batter on cookie sheets with about 1-inch gaps in between to allow for spreading
  6. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds and bake 10-15min or until cookies begin to brown
  7. Cool completely before serving
  8. Enjoy!

That’s my MAMA helping out with the recipe, Hi Mama! 🙂

This Is My Journey!

This Is My Journey!

I realized that some of you might not know why I started this blog or why I started our company, FLIPBOX. So today I’m going to take a break from sharing recipe FLIPS to share a little bit about me, my journey and how this all came about. Please take a moment to read it through and if you feel it resonates with you or someone you know feel free to share it.

This was me 3 1/2 years ago. A new mom, new life, unhealthy and totally lost.

 

Before pregnancy, my life consisted of long work hours, strenuous gym classes (that had me slimmer and more fit), juice cleanses, happy hours in the city and teeny tiny blue dresses! Then I met Joe, fell in love and life took us on an unexpected roller coaster of adventures and new beginnings.

One of those new beginnings? A baby! Nine months + 80lbs later, Carolina was born. We uprooted our life from Manhattan to Brooklyn to begin our new chapter as a family of three. Joe was quickly back at work, leaving me alone with a newborn and no manual. I was overwhelmed and scared.  I spent most days alone with Caro, fighting the baby blues while trying to get my life back to “normal”. I was trying to make sense of my emotions and I did that by overeating. I was picking up unhealthy eating habits that weren’t making me feel better.

I realized I had two choices- dwell on being overweight and unhappy or make a lifestyle change. I chose happiness – and that meant changing my lifestyle, beginning with my eating habits. I knew that this kind of change and behavior started with me, and if I wanted to set an example for my daughter and my family I had to change.

Inspired by healthy food blogs, cookbooks, and cooking class, I changed my diet, began to exercise again and the weight started to come off. Shortly after I started the blog as an outlet. I also picked up some self-help books and learned to use meditation to calm my anxiety. I gradually made small changes to my life that I knew would work for me. Everyone’s journey is different; but, it always begins with baby steps.

 

 

 

 

Fast forward to my NEW normal, which is still a work in progress. Joe, Caro, the blog, and FLIPBOX make up this new chapter of my life and my heart is full. I went from not setting foot in the kitchen to cooking and sharing healthy meals that are both delicious and time-efficient for busy families like us.

I also developed a kid-friendly dessert kit, FLIPBOX, that encourages families to come together and bake something yummy, fun, and healthy.

I’m not a doctor or a nutritionist; I’m a mom on a mission to make healthy eating easier and fun for families! 

I’ll be honest, it was not easy for me to share these photos, but I did it because I want other mamas to know they are not alone. Look around you- there are mamas right next to you fighting that good fight, and trying to be the best version of themselves. It’s okay to feel overwhelmed sometimes. Life changes, but with change come different opportunities to be better and to be wiser! One thing I’ve learned so far on this crazy journey of growth and self-discovery is to follow your passion. When you do what you love, doors will open organically and your soul will be fed.  Live in gratitude. Take a minute to say ‘thank you’ to that higher power and spread gratitude to others. Lastly, pay it forward. Help others along the way.

Oh, and that teeny tiny blue dress? I finally took it out of my closet and donated it. It’s a size 2 which isn’t my size. I’m a HEALTHY and HAPPY size 8 and I am Loving it. Here’s to loving who we are at every stage in life and living our truth!

White Bean Mac and Cheese! Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free

White Bean Mac and Cheese! Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free

Like most of us, I find it hard to believe that dairy-free Mac and cheese can taste good. For me, if it’s not the real thing why even bother, right? All that changed when I saw a recipe for Mac and Cheese made with sweet potatoes. Mac and Cheese has to be creamy and it makes total sense that sweet potatoes would give it that creamy consistency – but I wasn’t sold on “sweet” Mac and Cheese. Well, here’s a recipe for dairy-free Mac and Cheese made with WHITE BEANS that taste so delicious you won’t miss the real thing. In fact, my Mom, who was just in NYC to watch me run the Brooklyn Half Marathon (more on that in a sec) was pleasantly surprised when she tried our healthy Mac and Cheese. The consistency is perfect, and the taste is spot on! You’ll have to trust me on this one. Best part, I separated the mix into small ramekins, perfect for meal-prep. Simply re-heat a few ramekins at a time and pair with a side salad or sauteed veggies. Dinner is served!
Ok, so the Brooklyn Half Marathon was my first official run. 13.1 miles through Brooklyn and the weather did not cooperate. I ran a slow and steady race (12min miles) that felt good from start to finish. Completing a Half Marathon has been my goal for a long time and I finally had the opportunity to do it – and I IT FELT SO GOOD! I shared a picture of me at the finish line.
Anyway, hope you guys like this healthy Mac and Cheese recipe and if you do please don’t forget to share your pictures on Facebook and Instagram by tagging us @ourflipsidelife
