Healthy & Delicious Gluten-Free Dessert
Almost everyone craves sweets sometimes. In my case, my sweet tooth is very important to me! But I’ve learned I don’t need to depend on processed sugar to satisfy my cravings: I can look to natural delights like this easy, gluten-free, dairy-free fruit bake.
Whenever possible, I try to enjoy my treats with a friend—it always makes them sweeter (the treats and the friend!).
1 cup buckwheat flour (or any gluten-free flour blend)
1 cup non-dairy milk (make this delicious almond milk yourself!)
2 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup maple syrup or raw honey
3 cups chopped fruit (I like to use raspberries, blueberries, nectarines, and plums)
Pinch of sea salt
Sunflower or untoasted sesame oil
2-quart shallow baking pan
Heat your oven to 425°F
Grease the pan with the oil
Combine the flour, milk, baking powder, salt, maple syrup, and eggs in a bowl and beat them into a smooth, bubbly batter
Spread the fruit in the bottom of the pan and pour the batter over them
Bake for about 30 minutes, or until edges are golden and start to pull away from the pan
Enjoy a warm piece with hot tea and good company!
I would love to hear your thoughts!
