This post is for anyone visiting Grain Free Living for the first time. The recipes on this website are not exclusively paleo and often use the grain-like seeds quinoa, buckwheat and amaranth. The website name and content may or may not represent your own view of what is "grain free". If you are cool with that, thanks for visiting and click here to find out lots more of how I handle my version of being grain-free.
A nice loaf of bread that does not crumble and is not dry. Suitable for children with a Salicylate allergy (yep, it’s failsafe). Gluten Free, nut free, soy free, egg free and dairy free AND it still tastes good! You need an accurate pair of scales for this recipe.
This cafe style pecan and date bread is delicious if you can tolerate or are allowed quinoa flour and starches. Not suitable for paleo, GAPS, SCD or Whole30 but great if you are avoiding gluten and grains but are fine with the pseudo cereals.
These pancakes are egg free, dairy free and Body Ecology approved. Buckwheat is not a grain but a seed related to rhubarb, and is highly nutritious. The chia seed helps to bind them without using any egg. Not suitable if paleo, GAPS or SCD.
