Cake Truffles Using the Babycakes Machine (Gluten Free & Low Glycemic)

Gluten Free Cake Truffles

For my sons 17th birthday we ventured to make cake pops. I used the chocolate cake recipe from The Almond Flour Cookbook by Elana Amsterdam, but with my own slight adaptation. The Babycakes was easy to use, hardest part was filling the cups quickly.

Gluten Free Chocolate Cake (also low glycemic)
1 cup all purpose gluten free flour
1 cup unblanched almond flour
1/2 cup light agave nectar
3 cage free eggs
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tbl vanilla extract

Mix all ingredients together. Use a small spoon to fill baking cups to the top. Bake for 3 minutes. Makes about 50 cake balls.

I then used a microwave safe dish to melt a chunk of Dark Baker’s Chocolate that I bought at Woodman’s. Roll the cake ball into the chocolate until covered then place on onto some wax paper to cool. Once all the cake balls were covered I ten melted some peppermint melting chocolate I found at JoAnn’s. Using a spoon I placed a dollop on top of each ball and then sprinkled with chocolate jimmies.

They are so yummy! So good that I would buy them if they were at a shop. The small hint of peppermint is perfect accent.

Double Nut Gluten Free Cookie Recipe

What to do when you want peanut butter cookies but don’t have enough peanut butter for the recipe? Find a substitute! In this case I used Nutella to make up the 1 cup.

So the 3 ingredient recipe turns to four…
1/4 cup Nutella
3/4 cup Peanut Butter
1 cup Sugar
1 Egg

Bake on pizza stone for 15 minutes at 350. If your making smaller cookies check at 13 minutes.

The Nutella gives the cookies a slight chocolate taste and makes the cookies much sweeter than just peanut butter.

Chai Spice Scone Mix from Simply Organic

I was looking for a good deal on a whole food vitamin and hyaluronic acid, preferrably from the same site so I could save on shipping, when I stumbled upon iherb.com (use code OGI923 to save $5). I found all kinds of deals, free coffee mug, free enzymes, and more. I got so close to $40 that is was to my benefit to find a few more dollars to spend and get free shipping, so I did a search on the iherb.com site for “gluten free” and thats where I found “Chai Spice Scone Mix from Simply Organic” so I added it to my cart and finished my purchase before I spent even more money!

Fast forward a few days later, my order has arrived and tomorrow there is a ladies event at my church where I know there will not be much that my friend Violet and I can eat so I decide to make the scones as a special treat for us.

At first I thought I was not going to be able to make the scone mix without a trip to the store because the mix called for butter and eggs. Then I noticed a vegan version for the mix that only called for 1/4 cup of ground flax, 2/3 cup water, and the scone mix. Always looking to save calories I loved the idea of the vegan option.

So I threw the three ingredients into a bowl and mixed them together while the oven was preheating. Plopped nine lumps onto my pizza stone and twenty five minutes later I had lovely, slightly browned scones that smelled absolutely delicious!

Always wanting my families opinion I headed my husband and son each a small scone as soon as they were cooled enough to eat and waited for their opinions. As always they were nonchalant and both pretty much said, “Eh, their fine.” So helpful guys, thanks!

I grabbed s scone for myself and sat in front of my computer to play Sims Social (don’t start it’s addictive). Knowing that scones are notoriously dry I made sure to have a tall glass of ice water and once settled bit into the chai spice scone. I love it! It tastes just like chai, although the cloves flavor is a tad strong, I still thoroughly enjoyed the scone and will definitely buy the mix again.

As a side note I noticed that the box also has a recipe for chai pancakes and the Simply Organic products are certified organic and fair trade.

Mix ingredients are:
Organic brown rice flour, Organic cane sugar, Organic sucanat, sea salt, xanthan gum, monocalcium phospate, Organic cornstarch, baking soda, Organic cardamom, Organic cinnamon, Organic ginger, Organic gloves, Organic black pepper.

1 cup natural peanut butter

1 egg

1 egg white

1 cup dark chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350.  Mix all ingredients together.  Drop spoonful onto baking stone, press down with fork if desired.  Bake for 12-15 minutes.

Super Easy Gluten Free Chocolate Mousse

This recipe does require a Ninja, Magic Bullet, or other similar device.

1 cup Heavy Cream

4 – 8 Tbs. Hersheys Chocolate Syrup

Raspberries, optional

The cream has to be cold.  Combine ingredients in blender cup.  Usually takes 3-4 ten second bursts.  Top with raspberries if desired.  The mousse is very rich so serve in small portions.

Side note: I tried to make this recipe with the Walden Farms Calorie Free Chocolate Syrup.  Unfortunately it does not work all I got was a congealed mess that looked like rotten milk!
