Grain Free Decadent Chocolate Cake

Who doesnt love chocolate cake?  Well, certainly a few people 😉 but not many.  For a majority, chocolate cake is a quintessential classic yet routinely craved dessert.  Get excited for this decadent version, topped with a whipped chocolate cream.  Super easy to make, and the best part?  Grain/gluten free, and low in sugar!

Why should I care about not eating grains, you ask?  You can read about that in brief here.

So, this chocolate cake is sweet, satisfying, fudgy and delish, though without the grains and with way less sugar than usual.  To me, if you can eat something that’s far better for you yet tastes just as good as they significantly less healthy original, why not go with the version that’s better for your body?  This one is exactly that.  A sweet treat that’s better for you than the original version, though just as tasty.

Orange Zest and Spice Baked Donuts

Hi all,

Who doesn’t love donuts?  I cant think of many people.  That’s because donuts are the bomb.  A quintessential American treat.  If made right, they are fluffy, melt-in-your-mouth, lightly sweet, and ideally topped with a swirling of frosting.  The perfect amount for a treat sized snack.  Not so much that you feel ill after consuming one, just enough to feel satisfied and oh so happy.

Behold: my donuts are made with zero grains/gluten, they have no refined sugar, and are dairy free (save for two eggs, but if you like, these can be substituted with egg beaters- found in the grocery store.  An egg substitute).

These babies have a unique, lovely flavor to boot.  Orange zest combined with a plethora of spices (a touch of cinnamon, a lot of ground cloves, and a tad of ginger).  The end result is awesome.  And, I threw the dough together in just ten minutes.  So while the ingredients may sound slightly complex to some who haven’t tried working with nut flours just yet (and no, the donuts do not taste like nuts), its super easy.  I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
