Wheatless Wednesday: Grain Free Dessert Party

July 27, 2011

Many gluten free baked goods are loaded with sugar and overly-processed ingredients. Just because it's gluten free, does not mean that it's healthy.

Let's go beyond labels and into a realm of seasonal desserts made with whole foods and very little sweeteners.

Blueberry Cherry Crumble
A guilt-free crumble?? Elena's Pantry offers this grain free delight which uses fruit as the only sweetener.

Nutty Cookies
This Paelo-diet inspired recipe is filled with nutrient dense goodness.

Raw Hazelnut Cookies
All you need is a blender and a fridge to make these simple yet decadent cookies.

Fresh Fig Tart
MMM, figs are coming into season and this amazingly delicious tart puts them to good use.

Peach Cream Pie with Blackberries
Summer's bounty is well represented with this peachy keen pie. I suggest cutting the honey in half, because you'll get plenty sweetness from the fruit.

I'm not sure what kind of shop Dillon's is, but typically I buy produce from local farmers markets or co-ops.
