Thermomix Quinoa and Buckwheat Bread

In the years since first making my Original Gluten Free Bread recipe, it still is a staple in our house.  Even though I am now mostly paleo in my approach the rest of the family love this bread.

This recipe is the latest version.  It remains easy to tweak so that it is “failsafe” for kids who need a low food chemical diet, and it is certainly many times better than any commercial gluten free or grain free bread on the market.  This recipe uses pseudocereals (also called pseudo-grains,  I’ve talked about it before here and here.) Here is my take: quinoa and buckwheat are not approved if you are paleo, on GAPS or SCD or are doing a Whole30.  They don’t work for everyone, I completely agree.  However, this recipe is provided for everyone who loved the original recipe and would like the new version of a nutrient dense, great textured, grain-free bread that is low food chemical and soy free.

Failsafe Banana Bread

This is a buckwheat flour recipe just perfect for anyone who hates the taste of buckwheat.  It tastes amazing, and you could give this to your fussiest eater, including “normal” wheat-eaters and they will love it too.  Its healthy enough to have for breakfast toasted or untoasted and “cake-y” enough to have anytime as a treat.  Its other big plus: its failsafe, although not recommended for the amine sensitive due to all the bananas!Read More »Failsafe Banana Bread

Amaranth Berry Cake

Raspberry Lemon & Almond Slice

125g butter
1 cup caster sugar
splash of vanilla essence (about 1.5 tsp)
3 eggs
1/2 cup plain yoghurt with a splash of lemon juice
1 cup almond meal
1/4 cup amaranth flour
1/4 cup buckwheat flour
1/4 cup potato starch
1 cup frozen rasberries

This slice is alot like a friand.  It is slighly chewy on the outside, soft and moist on the inside and smells and looks amazing fresh out of the oven, with the raspberry marbled top. It looks and tastes “special” its flavours ideal to serve to your grain-eating guests who would normally find the flavours of buckwheat and amaranth too strong – give them this with a dusting of icing sugar and a spoon of thick yoghurt or cream to serve, and you will have some very happy people begging you for the recipe.  Lots of sugar so not even pretending this one is healthy but perfect for an occasional treat.
