How to enjoy desserts with MCTD!

When I was told that I have a food allergy to wheat, I was pretty bummed out because I have a HUGE sweet tooth, was I supposed to now not enjoy desserts??? (Insert suspense music). But then I found out there are tons and tons of gluten free desserts on Pinterest and it made me feel happy again.Gluten free dessert

As I was browsing though their numerous dessert boards, I came across a recipe that not only did it say that it was gluten free but also soy free.

Fun Fact: According to verywell.com, “soy can be subject to gluten cross-contamination—in some cases, lots of gluten cross-contamination—as a result of how it’s grown.

So I really try to avoid soy, especially while eating sushi.

Anyways, I found this awesome recipe that seemed pretty good and all too good to be true. So while I was suspicious and wondering if it was even going to taste good, I saved the recipe on my phone and went shopping for the ingredients.

This delicious peach crisp recipe from Nature’s Knockout says you have to use all gluten free oats (which duh it makes sense but they were hard to find) and other natural ingredients. Thankfully Kroger had almost everything that I needed, so shout out to Kroger!

As you can see in the picture above I got nectarines instead of peaches, and gluten free four instead of almond flour. I also had to improvise on adding regular sugar instead of Stevia since I don’t use the stuff.

The instructions say to:

  1. Heat oven to 375ºF or 190ºC.
  2. Place peaches in un-greased 13×9 inch baking dish. Stir in lemon juice.
  3. In a large bowl, combine all topping ingredients. Just mix them until crumbly and then top peaches with the topping.
  4. Bake 10-12 minutes and remove.
  5. Serve warm with any of the toppings in our cookbook…ice cream, Sweet Leche, Coconut Cream, or Lemon Glaze Frosting-pictured

I added an extra five minutes while baking, just to make sure everything cooked properly. Aaaand tada, it’s finished!

Once it finished baking I knew I had to try it out then and there instead of waiting till breakfast time. As I cut up a square and tried to place it onto a plate, the square crumbled everywhere, but since I guess there isn’t a crust underneath it was bound to happen.

It was a pretty good recipe for my first try in making a peach crisp, but i’m thinking next time I will look for something that has a crust underneath for more stability.

Which gluten free desserts do you enjoy to make??
