GF Chocolate Beer Cake

GF Chocolate Beer Cake

GF Chocolate Beer Cake

Unbelievable…this GF Chocolate Beer Cake is incredibly light…like Angel Food Cake. Just use Jule Shepard’s versatile GF Flour blend,  stir most of the ingredients in a pot and pour into a bundt pan.

To healthify, I replaced one of the two Cups of Sugar with 1/2 Cup NOW non-GMO Erythritol and 1/2 Tsp Green Stevia and no one was the wiser.  You can get Monk Fruit or Stevia Erythritol blends from the Bulk Barn.  Better deals can be had online from Swanson’s Vitamins.

What made me want to bake with beer ?    A helpful family member, “She, who cannot be named” accidentally put our GF Beer bottles in the upright freezer in the garage (we have a chest freezer too that added to the confusion). There were a few casualties but I just couldn’t bear chucking the rest.   I knew there was a Guinness Chocolate Cake recipe out there but I stumbled across this GF Knock-Off, thank you Jules!

I used a light GF Beer…now I need to track down a dark one and re-test this recipe.  Cheers !

Guacamole

Holy Guacamole !  Food Network’s Alton Brown of Good Eat’s fame has a really good recipe for Game Day !  Great with The Better Chip Beets and Sea Salt tortilla chips.  Spinach & Kale and Jalapeno are good choices too.

I didn’t change the recipe one iota.  But if you want to double or triple the recipe, just click on this guacamole link to download a PDF.

To prevent browning, use barely ripe Avocados and press saran wrap on the surface of the dip and seal around the edges.  The Good Eat’s Guy says to let it sit for 2 hours at room temperature before serving.  Good Luck with that, I’m diggin’ in.

Healthy Balls !

Healthy Balls

Healthy Balls rolled in toasted Coconut

Whose Balls are Better ?!

6 Pack Abs guy, Mike Geary,  referred his readers to Healthy Cookie Dough Balls by Danette May then he came up with a new and improved version, Healthy Balls !   Just reach into the freezer for a chocolatey, chewy treat to tide you over. Mike claims there’s enough to last you a week, NOT !

My Healthy Balls PDF includes theses substitutions:  Kaizen grass-fed chocolate stevia sweetened protein powder, Carob Powder, Hemp Hearts and toasted Coconut.

Flax Breakfast Bars

I bought my GF sister some flourless cookies from the Red Square Bakery.     She liked the “Honey I Cheated On You” cookies so much, she knocked it off.

Flax Breakfast Bars has her original recipe plus a few of my healthifying substitutions.

Warning:  Due to rapid, end results…be close to “the facilities”.
