Soft and Chewy Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies with Brown Butter and Flaky Salt

I originally shared the recipe for these gluten free chocolate chip cookies back in 2012 and they’ve continued to be a favorite in my kitchen and that of many readers. Thanks to everyone who’s tried these out and left sweet comments below!

I recently gave these another test, leaving out the xanthan gum I had originally called for, and took some fresh photos. I also added gram measurements for my dear readers who prefer to weigh their ingredients (recommended for accuracy!)

If you like to experiment with alternative flours, I developed versions featuring buckwheat flour, mesquite flour, and teff flour for Food52 using a similar base recipe.

An Ode to Gluten Free Crisp

If I had to pick a single dessert to make and eat for the rest of my life, it would be fruit crisp. (But only if I could also eat chocolate.) I never tire of thick, saucy fruit lidded with salty brown sugar streusel laced with nuts, oats, and spices. Ice cream is mandatory. That space where melty ice cream meets warm compote and buttery streusel is pure bliss.

Dairy Free & Gluten Free Carrot Cake

This dairy free & gluten free carrot cake gets a tender, springy crumb from a blend of whole grain flours. Gently spiced with cinnamon and ginger and slathered with vegan cream cheese frosting, this healthy carrot cake is easy enough to bake on a weeknight but dressy enough for spring festivities. Thanks to Bob’s Red Mill for sponsoring this post!

Dairy Free Gluten Free Carrot Cake

I don’t know when or why carrot cake came to be associated with Easter. I’m guessing it’s because… Easter bunnies eat carrots? I actually consider carrot cake more of a fall dessert, the season during which spice cakes and orange veggies are both de rigueur. But I’m not complaining. Because just like pumpkin pie, I crave carrot cake year-round. And now that I’ve developed my favorite ever dairy free and gluten free carrot cake recipe, I can have it all the time too.

This cake can be in and out of the oven in under an hour meaning that you can have carrot cake any night of the week. But dress it up in curls of rainbow carrot ribbons and it stars at any gathering – springtime or otherwise!

Vegan Cream Cheese Frosting

Great vegan cream cheese frosting starts with great vegan butter and cream cheese. I’m lucky enough to live in the same region as Miyoko’s, where vegan cultured cheeses and butters are made from all natural organic ingredients. They taste like magic.

Gluten Free Lime Curd Tart

It’s March 14th aka 3.14 aka Pi(e) Day! So naturally I’m sharing a tart because I’m a rebel. Just kidding. Pies and tarts are nearly the same thing except that tarts are better because they’re French. Seriously though, you could just as soon assemble this goodness in a pie pan and call it a gluten free lime pie.

I originally created this tart for my Alternative Baking column in GFF Magazine last spring. I loved it so much, I wanted to share it here as well!

Vegan Coconut Curry Noodle Soup {gluten-free}

TBG turns 10 this year (!!!) and in preparation for celebration, I’ve been doing a bit of KonMari-style tidying up. Taking new photos of some of my favorite dishes from the first few years of this space and sprucing up the posts feels just as lovely as strategically folding my shirt drawer. And it will hopefully make the posts as easy to find as my favorite tees too!
