Flourless Belgian Chocolate Cake

When it comes to flourless desserts, you just can’t go wrong with chocolate. This dense, dark cake is every chocolate-lover’s dream, with (almost) no flour at all to get the way of the real star. Just a couple tablespoons of almond flour (or you can substitute regular flour if you like) to hold it all together.

Flourless Pecan Chocolate Chip Cookies

These flour and butter in these gluten free cookies are replaced with creamy pecan butter and the result is incredibly delicious. They have a rich flavor, a chewy texture, and an extra dose of protein!

Gluten Free Tangerine Cake

One of my all-time flourless dessert recipes, this stunner of a cake is fun to make, and bursts with fresh citrus flavor! It’s made with whole tangerines (everything but the seeds!) which gives it a glorious color and intense flavor. The absence of flour makes it super tender.

Amazing Quinoa Chocolate Cake

This cake uses whole quinoa in place of flour and you won’t believe the amazing texture that creates (hence the word ‘amazing’ in the title!)

      Well, it sounds like you ARE a good baker, Debi 🙂 I hope the quinoa cake goes over big too, and have a wonderful rest of the holiday season.

    Hi Sue , I made the Tangerine cake and all turned out great although I had to change amounts in to grams. It cooked in slightly less than 50mins. Just having a slice with a cup of tea and it tastes even better 2 days later. Thanks for your help. Susan.
