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

quinoa & arrowroot bread rolls

Gluten Free White Bread Rolls

These bread rolls are like white bread dinner rolls, similar to the Basco Brand bread mix but without the dairy (milk powder) and without the corn-based dextrose.  The quantity is enough for 5 or 6 rolls – just enough to have with soup or dinner, but the quantity can easily be doubled to make more.

This receipe is Grain-free, gluten-free, milk and butter free and FAILSAFE but does contain egg.  Enjoy!!!

Arrowroot Biscuits

These biscuits are crisp and light and keep really well.  Great with a coffee or cup of tea.  The flavour is so mild you can give them to your wheat eating friends and they will never know.  This is for a small batch of about two trays.  They are also FAILSAFE.Read More »Arrowroot Biscuits

Failsafe Chicken Nuggets

Most nuggets and sausage contain flour, even gluten free ones have rice flour, not to mention all the other nasties like preservatives and flavour enhancers. Kids will absolutely love these nuggets and never ask for the fast food version again….yes, they are THAT good. Even better, they are very quick and easy to make.  This is another recipe from Kim.  Thanks Kim.

Grain-free Bread

Quinoa & Buckwheat Gluten Free Bread, Original 2009 Recipe

A nice loaf of bread that does not crumble and is not dry, this is my original “grain free” recipe from 2009.

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.
