Amaranth Soya Protein Biscotti (Gluten Free and Grain Free)

Wednesday, September 25, 2013 | © 2013 | | © 2013 |

Thanks to the distinctive sweet, nutty, peppery taste of amaranth and the higher level of protein and calcium, this biscotti is a power house compared to the traditional twice-baked cookies. Made with finely ground amaranth seeds and soya protein powder, lightly sweetened with maple syrup, it's healthy, easy and tasty.
Naturally gluten-free amaranth is a common name for a group of more than 60 species of amaranthus. Amaranth is a highly nutritious seed, which offers a complete form of vegetable protein. It is also a great source of dietary fiber, calcium, B vitamins and minerals such as iron, magnesium, phosphorus, copper and manganese.

  • 130 g Amaranth seeds, ground into flour
  • 45 g Pistachio soya protein powder
  • 1/2 tsp Baking powder
  • Pinch of fine sea salt
  • 2 Small eggs
  • 2-3 tbsp Maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp Coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 tsp Almond extract
  • 40 g Almond slices
    Preheat oven to 160C/320F. Line a standard loaf pan with parchment paper.
  1. In a large bowl, whisk the amaranth flour, soya protein powder, baking powder, and salt. In a small bowl, whisk the eggs, maple syrup, melted coconut oil, and almond extract until blended. Add the liquid mixture to the flour mixture. Mix until just combined. The mixture is like thick cake batter.
  2. Scrape the mixture into prepared loaf pan. Sprinkle the top with almond slices. Bake for 20 minutes until set. Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 150C/300F.
  3. Use a serrated knife to slice diagonally into 3/4-inch thick slices. Lay flat on a parchment-lined baking sheet and return to the oven for 12 to 15 minutes until browned. Flip cookies and bake for another 12 to 15 minutes.
  4. Remove from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool completely. Store at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks. | © 2013 | | © 2013 |

Cauliflower Tortillas (Paleo, Grain Free, Gluten free)

Monday, September 09, 2013 | © 2013 |

I discovered this recipe on slimpalate via Pinterest a little while ago. It is surprisingly delicious, super easy to make, low-carb, low-calorie and gluten-free. You can use them as the pizza crust or simply top with fresh cheese spread or guacamole...very much like you would with a warm soft tortilla, but without extra calories or carbohydrates.

  • 3/4 head Cauliflower, riced or 2 cups riced and packed
  • 2 Small eggs
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 190C/375F and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  2. Separate cauliflower into smaller florets and remove most of the stem. Pulse until you get a texture slightly finer than rice. Once it’s riced measure it to make sure you have 2 cups packed.
  3. Place riced cauliflower in bowl and microwave for 2 minutes and stir, then another two minutes and stir again then place in a dish towel and squeeze excess water out as hard as you can. Be careful not to burn yourself because it’s going to be very hot.
  4. Place drained cauliflower back in bowl and add two eggs, salt and pepper and mix until well combined. Divide the mixture onto a baking sheet into 6 small fairly flat circles.
  5. Place in the hot oven for 10 minutes then pull out of the oven and carefully peel them off the parchment and flip them and place back in the oven for 5-7 more minutes. Once they’re done place them on a wire rack to cool slightly.
  6. Heat a medium sized pan over medium heat and place the tortillas into the pan pressing down slightly and brown them to your liking. Don’t skip this step because it gives them slightly crispy on the edges and gives them a wonderfully nutty taste. | © 2013 | | © 2013 |
