Gluten Free Graham Crackers

Light, crisp, and buttery. Cinnamon, brown sugar, vanilla, and honey all complement earthy teff and oat flours, making these homemade gluten free graham crackers extra addictive.

Gluten Free Graham Crackers

I grew up in the ’80’s, when fat was evil and carbs were a-ok. Graham crackers were regularly doled out at snacktime, both at school and at home, always accompanied by glasses of apple juice or milk. I always felt meh about the cardboardy little buggers, dreaming of chocolate covered ice cream bars or gooey chocolate chip cookies to satisfy my ever hangry sweet tooth. But recently I tried my hand at homemade graham crackers and everything changed.

Gluten Free Apple Crisp

Warm apples, buttery spiced streusel, and a scoop of drippy ice cream melting over the top – this foolproof gluten free apple crisp makes a cozy dessert on chilly fall and winter nights. Use dairy-free butter and ice cream to make it vegan, or swap in peaches or berries during the summer.

Crisp is the dessert I’m almost always craving (along with ice cream and chocolate anything). It’s easy to whip up, can involve nearly any fruit, and when topped with a big scoop of melty ice cream, becomes dessert nirvana. This gluten free apple crisp recipe is as easy as it is versatile. It takes little hands-on time, makes enough for 4 servings, and is easily doubled or tripled for a crowd. Plus it works as well with peaches as it does with any baking apple (pink or otherwise!)

This week marks the 9th year of The Bojon Gourmet, and the second year of Alternative Baker.

I never dreamed that it would bring so many good things my way. 550 recipes later, I’m blessed with a huge, supportive community of fellow bloggers, entrepreneurs, eco-conscious brands, and readers all around the globe. What better way to celebrate than with cake?!

Baked Raspberry Mascarpone Tart {gluten-free}

I’m popping in briefly today to share this easy, gluten-free baked raspberry mascarpone tart that I whipped up the other night. A few of you saw it in my IG stories and asked for the recipe and I’m only too happy to share. It’s late in the season for raspberries, but I found some incredibly flavorful ones from Coke Farm, which is kind of produce royalty, at our co-op. They and an extra container of luscious mascarpone from my friends at Vermont Creamery inspired this tart.

Avocado Tomatillo Salsa {updated}

This verdant spread is like a cross between tomatillo salsa and guacamole. Serve up a batch of avocado tomatillo salsa with a platter of chips and vegetables for dipping, or dollop it on tacos, chilaquiles, enchiladas, or burrito bowls. 

Avocado Tomatillo Salsa

This time of summer is always bittersweet. Technically we still have weeks of the season left, but since many schools start back about this time, I keep hearing things like “summer’s over!!!” It always sends me into a panic. Have I eaten enough peaches, nectarines, plums, and tomatoes yet?? NEVER.
