Grain-Free Goodies

I’ve been experimenting lately with cutting out grains in my diet, or at least reducing the amount I typically eat.  Articles such as Going Grain-Free and Against All Grain Health Transformation have provided helpful information about the benefits of choosing a grain-free diet.  

I must say, the days that I haven’t had any grains, I have felt better – less bloated, clearer skin.  

With these good results, I’ve been encouraged to keep experimenting with more grain-free recipes.

And I’ve found some really yummy ones!  Here’s a little round-up of some of the recipes I’ve tried and loved, as well as a few I’m planning on trying.

Grain Free Sandwich Bread (pictured above from – This recipe has become a staple in our house.  There are a few steps involved with this recipe, but once you’ve made it once or twice, you could do it with your eyes closed (ok, maybe not, but it becomes a lot simpler 😉 ).  We love to toast this bread and make BLTs (with nitrate-free turkey bacon).

Coconut Flour Flatbread (from – These are similar to pancakes and make the perfect sized flatbreads to make sandwiches. I also like to eat them for breakfast with a little Grade B maple syrup.  They are grain free, low carb, high fiber and a great way to stabilize blood sugar.  

Grain Free Pumpkin Bars (from– If you like pumpkin, you will love this recipe.  With a cake-like texture, you would never know this recipe is free of any grains or flours.  The maple pecan glaze makes it tastes decadent (but it’s still healthy!).  All you need is one bowl to mix this recipe together.  Super simple and super delicious!

I’m also looking forward to trying this 3-Minute Coconut Almond Porridge, and these 5 ingredient Mini Muffins. If you want more ideas on Grain-free recipes, make sure to follow my Grain-Free Board on Pinterest!

  1. Very funny how our experiments are similar.

    I have recently done the “whole30”. Have you heard about it? I could tell the food I ate has a lot to do with my mood, but I needed to understand more about it. That is why I have started this program. I have not eaten any diary, grains, gluten, added sugar, sulfite, seed oil, soya… for 30 days. I am now in the reintroduction process. It is a way to see what each ingredient does to me.

    I can tell I have a better sleep, digestion, energy level, taste, no more cravings. I do not need an alarm clock to get up at 6:00 a.m. ! But what I have found out is that eating low carb is what is giving me a lot of energy and positivity. If your body does not use carb for fuel it has to use fat. The transition is difficult, especially if you are not eating enough fat. Now that I have understood that, it is very helpful. Constant happiness with no mood variations. (I am not talking here about my spiritual moments, which are of course the very first foundation of true happiness in my life) – I have ordered other books to find out more about it (it takes me time to read it because I only have about one hour a week to spend on it ! It’s frustrating)

    1. Thanks for sharing, Cecile! I have heard of Whole30 but don’t know much about it. You have definitely inspired me to look into it! 🙂
