Baked fruit and Nut Cups (gluten, dairy, egg and free)

I was in need of snack the other day and was really low on groceries. Well, not low on food, but low on any thing that was fast and easy. I didn’t really just want a hand full of nuts and was being picky. (I hope I’m not the only one that gets that way!)

I decided to throw a few things in the blender and bake them to see how they came out…it worked well. The combination of nuts and fruit reminds me a bit of a baked Lara Bar. I actually ate a few bites before they were baked and I could have honestly eaten it like that. (I used frozen berries and if you are a Trim Healthy Mama, it reminded me of a dairy free Cheesecake Berry Crunch!)

The fruit and nuts cups tasted great for a snack, you do want to limit yourself if you are THM to just a few, but I had two with my smoothie the next morning and it filled me right up.

I used these (affiliate link) silicon baking liners and they were perfect. (They are great for baking without eggs, they seem to help with the rise when you need it) I just pop them in my muffin pan and they are super easy to clean and use.

Ingredients
  • ¼ cup pumpkin seeds
  • ¼ cup walnuts
  • ¼ almonds
  • ¼ pecans
  • ¼ cup ground flax
  • 2 tbsp erythitol
  • ½ tsp molasses
  • 1 tbsp. Coconut oil
  • 1 Tbsp of gelatin
  • ½ tsp cinnamon pwd.
  • ⅛ tsp salt
  • ½ cup blueberries (or 1 cup strawberries)
  • ¼ cup water
Instructions
  1. Pulse all ingredients in a blender until coarsely ground
  2. Press into muffin liners
  3. Baked at 350 for 40 minutes (longer if you want them crispy)
  4. Makes a dozen cups

If you are worried about these not being completely sugar free, you are only used 1/2 tsp. of molasses which has is 2.5 grams of carbs, but that is for the entire batch. (I like to use (affiliate linkunsulphured blackstrap molasses)  You can also leave it out. They are not super sweet, so I would add an extra bit of sweetener of choice.

For gelatin, I like (affiliate link) this brand because it is grass fed.

I think this recipe would also be great crumbled on greek yogurt as a snack. Just bake it longer to get it crispy.

Nourishing enchilada sauce

It’s getting to be germ season and I’m all about keeping us healthy. That means our food needs to count. We are building healthy guts here and an easy way to help do that is by using bone broth.

I add it to soups, stews, gravy and sauces. (When we are sick, we drink it by the cup!) One of just about everyone’s favorites around here is my nourishing enchilada sauce.  It is perfect with burritos, as taco sauce, the base of a Mexican soup or even over a taco salad.

Nourishing enchilada sauce

Bone broth is something I always keep in my freezer. My friend Renee has some great information on bone broth and the how-to’s, here.

This sauce is considered an S on the Trim Healthy Mama plan because I like to keep the fat from my broth. If you skim the fat or use a store bought stock, you can probably get away with this being a fuel pull. Taco night is a favorite of mine because I can stick to plan without making a separate meal an everyone enjoys their own toppings.

This sauce is great to make in bigger batches and freeze. I love being able to pull the sauce out for a quick taco night. I use these (affiliate link) BPA free containers to freeze in. I always crack jars and I don’t have time for that kind of kitchen disaster.

Ingredients
  • 1-2 tbsp. of olive oil
  • 2 chopped onions
  • 6 cloves of minced garlic
  • 1 quart of chicken stock
  • 2 small cans of tomato paste
  • 3 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp of cumin
  • sea salt to taste (This can vary due to salt content of broth)
Instructions
  1. Saute onions and garlic in olive oil until golden
  2. Add chicken stock and tomato paste, stir until well mixed
  3. Add spices and vinegar
  4. Let simmer for 15 minuets to let flavors mingle.

You don’t need a lot of ingredients, you need the right ones to make a rich, healthy sauce. My kids always ask for extra sauce to place on their burritos and tacos. I love it because I know they are getting a great helping of nutrient dense food.

Trim Healthy Mama “S” meals (gluten/dairy/egg free)

Last month I set out to make a list of allergy friendly E meals recipes that are gluten, dairy and egg free for all of the mama’s out there trying to do the Trim Healthy Mama plan with allergies. You guys have given me such love that I decided to follow through and work up a round up of allergy friendly “S” meals. :) Woot!

While “S” meals tend to be easier for me, I do get in a rut, so this collection should help inspire me, and hopefully YOU to branch out a bit! There are some great recipes from some of my bloggy friends but there are so many more to experiment with.

Some of the recipes call for a touch of butter or cheese, but I promise that I have made most of them with out the butter (using another healthy oil) and leaving out the cheese and they are wonderful. I think I indicated any of those recipes next to their link.

A few of the recipes also called for pasta, however you can easily sub it out for veggie noodles affiliate link(Do you have a  spiralizer? It’s worth it’s weight in GOLD!) or roasted veggies. I love roasted cabbage or summer squash in place of pasta! (if you are roasting your veggies, make sure you use a non-glass pan like this it will help them brown better for extra yumminess!)

Apple Crisp (gluten,dairy, egg, and sugar free)

I’ve been playing in the kitchen this week, mainly with baked goods. For awhile I was just not ready to attempt to bake things that were gluten, dairy, egg and sugar free. I think my brain was too tired to handle it. But, this mama needs dessert and this apple crisp is gluten,dairy, egg, and sugar free. (This is an E if you are a Trim Healthy Mama)

A recipe for apple crisp that is gluten, dairy, egg and sugar free!

This is even kid approved because my children asked for a bite…and then another one…and another one until it was gone!

This recipe is easy to throw together and you can change it up to fit your taste a bit better. I don’t use stevia, but you could if you want a sweeter kick. (The Trim Healthy Mama brand is an great one to try!) The Trim Healthy Mama brand of erythritol is also non-GMO!

Also, make sure you are getting gluten-free oats. Not all oats are gluten-free, I like this (affiliate link) brand.

I used this small dish to bake mine it and it came out great. I think you could double this recipe for an 8X8 pan if you are servings a few people.
