These granola bars aren’t pretty, but they taste great. They are gluten free, which means The Boy can eat them, and they are actually made with Sunbutter (a peanut butter like paste made from sunflower seeds and are therefore peanut and tree nut free!) which is why the title has peanut butter in quotation marks.

This recipe is the magical combination of outstandingly good and incredibly easy. Nope, that’s an understatement, it’s basically fool proof. And if you like regular oatmeal and haven’t tried steel cut oats then you are in for a real treat.
Last year after our Passover Seder I took the leftover charoset and turned it into a rolled cake that I served my family a few days later on Easter. It was so good I was thinking about it all year and eagerly awaiting the leftovers so I could once again make this cake. Until I […]
Here it is… drum roll please… the gluten free banana bread!
There have been a few serious challenges in this gluten free adventure and one has been finding a pancake that will satisfy the whole family. There have been more than a few attempts and each one was a failure. Some were too sweet, some too flat, some tasted too much like beans, some the texture […]
A couple of months ago one of my favorite food bloggers (Carrie Vitt from Deliciously Organic) set up a “30-day Grain Free Challenge” on her blog.

Have I mentioned how happy I’ve been to enjoy all these lovely baked goods on my diet? I think I have, but I honestly had no idea before this that it was so easy to make muffins and sweet breakfast breads so low fat and low calorie. It’s been a wonderful revelation.
This spread is so simple and so tasty it is a real treat. I’ve put it on muffins, English muffins, stirred into plain non-fat Greek yogurt, and even spooned over some low-fat ice-cream. It’s versatile, satisfying, and won’t break the calorie bank. Hard to beat if you ask me.
These muffins are the bomb. Seriously. If you like apple, like pumpkin, and like having something baked for breakfast these muffins are a dieter’s best friend. I really thought I wouldn’t be allowed baked goods on a diet. I suppose it was so many years of Atkin’s style protein based diets that made me secretly […]
Previously, on “Foodie, Formerly Fat”… I was discussing the end of this summer’s love affair between peaches and me. After the brilliance of the frozen yogurt I was down to the two final peaches waving to me from the peach bowl. Not enough to make much I thought and I was sorely tempted just to […]
