Almond Citrus Biscotti Thins

What is a better way to use up egg whites left from making shortcrust pastries that calls for egg yolks or when making custard? I have adapted the Pistachio Biscotti Thins Recipe from Epicurious.com to my Citrusy Almond Biscotti. I have used flaked Almonds with skin on for their health benefits and handling.

Honey Banana Loaf (GFDF)

What is GFDF? Gluten Free Dairy Free. Decided to try playing around with the Gluten Free Pound Cake recipe found on the back of Bob’s Red Mill GF Stone Ground Sorghum Flour since my previous trial of using a mix of the Sorghum Flour and some others for a GFDF starter was not very successful. For future bakes, I would reduce the baking time to … Continue reading Honey Banana Loaf (GFDF)

Breakfast Brownie (Vegan)

My usual quick breakfast fix that combines many health benefits including low blood sugar, constipation and possibly IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) was a combination of quick cooking oats, mashed banana, dark cocoa powder & flaked almonds. Portion control is key in assisting us in avoiding the unneeded side effects of foods that we consume in our daily meals. I came up with this ‘brownie’ as I did … Continue reading Breakfast Brownie (Vegan)
