Best Gluten-Free Banana Bread I have always loved my mom's banana bread. It was a quick, easy breakfast goodie that I could take with me to brunches or make to share for a playdate. Everyone would rave and it would only take me a few minutes. I have tried so many gluten-free banana bread recipes out there and none were the same. Then it finally came to me...maybe I should just try adapting my mom's recipe. If it was her bread that I liked, it was her bread that I should make. This amazing quick and easy bread is the result. You must try it. [amd-zlrecipe-recipe:35] Continue Reading...This post may contain affiliate links. See my full disclosure policy.
Ahhhh, the corn dog. An iconic childhood food. How I loved the taste of corn dogs in the summer at the fair!! The combinations of sweet and salty. Yum. Fast forward to today...no gluten-free corndogs. :( You may be able to find over-priced, grainy things that they are trying to pass as corn dogs in the freezer section of your local specialty store, but don't bother. They aren't that flavor from your past. There have been all sorts of yummy-looking mini corn dog muffin recipes flying around Facebook lately, and it was torture. But then I thought, maybe I could do this. Maybe I could Continue Reading...This post may contain affiliate links. See my full disclosure policy.
While our family is gluten-free all the time, we also try to eat grain-free whenever we can. We all seem to feel better without grains. For lack of a better term, we eat a Paleo diet most of the time. It is nice to have treats that I can feel great about giving the kids that aren't full of sugar as well. These muffins were a hit with the kiddos and parents alike. Gluten-Free Apple Muffins (Grain and Refined Sugar-Free) [amd-zlrecipe-recipe:29] Continue Reading...This post may contain affiliate links.

We have been gluten free for nearly 5 years now and I have made many loaves of bread in that time. My family is gracious and almost always likes it but no one ever loves it. In the last two years, our grocery store started carrying Udi's gluten free bread and I have had two more babies so my "ok" bread making has fallen by the wayside. Why spend the time to make bread when everyone likes the one I can buy better and it is easier? Now we have tightened our budget and that $6.99 per loaf is not budget friendly, especially when my 6 kiddos can devour a whole loaf and not be full. (Side Continue Reading...This post may contain affiliate links. See my full disclosure policy.
Baked goods are always hard to get right when you are baking gluten free. I am constantly experimenting with new things. Trying to make old gluten full favorites into new gluten free versions and trying to improve upon gluten free staples are a constant thing here in the Nap home. This normally means I am using new flours or sweeteners. I had heard that oat flour was a great substitute for wheat flour but most oat flour and oatmeal is very cross-contaminated with wheat when it is processed. I have never tried it before because it wasn't worth it. Then I thought maybe if I put gluten free Continue Reading...This post may contain affiliate links. See my full disclosure policy.
One of my favorite desserts has been apple pie since I was a kid. It always made fall feel just right. Well when we went gluten free, the apple pies went out the window. I am still trying to perfect a gluten free pie crust that I like. It's not been easy and I will share if I ever succeed. So what was going to replace that tasty must have fall treat. This apple crisp came to be out of that desperation:) I may never go back to pie again. [amd-zlrecipe-recipe:21] Continue Reading...This post may contain affiliate links.

I am so excited to be sharing my first recipe with you here at Managing Your Blessings. As I was trying to decide what to share with you, my oldest son asked for chicken enchilada casserole. Now, we have been gluten free for around five years and I have never attempted to convert this recipe. It seems like it should be easy, right? Just change the flour tortillas to corn tortillas. Unfortunately, my recipe also called for cream of chicken soup which is full of gluten. I have made gluten free cream of mushroom soup before but how do you cream a chicken? He just had to get my taste buds Continue Reading...This post may contain affiliate links. See my full disclosure policy.
