Today, I am excited to introduce to you a newer blogger friend of mine who has been so gracious to guest post and share one of her favorite gluten free recipes with us, Dark Chocolate, fudgy, Nutritious Zucchini Brownies. Get this my friends, they are not only gluten free, they are Dairy Free, Vegan and Low Carb. I know you have been waiting for a recipe like this! Aren’t we lucky for her to share this with us? Her recipe does call for straight rice flour, however, Gluten Free Mama’s Almond or Coconut Blend Flours would be fine substitutes too if you don’t have rice flour readily available. Just you will have to make changes for carb count.
Nóri is a fairly new blogger to my scene as I just met her recently. For my viewers who are egg free, dairy free, vegan and sometimes even need creative alternatives for sugars, she will be one to watch as she specializes in these sorts of recipes. And for my viewers who are from the European countries you will be happy to hear she is European too. She is Hungarian, also know as Magyar, and has both English and Magyar version on her website. Did you know there is a huge Hungarian community in America and Canada too? It is true. You will also find Hungarians in Hungary or course, but scattered through countries like Slovakia, Romania, Ukraine, Germany, United Kingdom, Brazil, Austrailia, Columbia, Chile, and Argentina. This was new information for me and fun to learn more about. I encourage you to learn more about Nóri and her culture by doing some fun web searches today.
In the meantime, back to food. That is what we are here for right? Here is a little bio from Nóri and of course her great recipe too! Dark, fudgy & nutritious: chocolate zucchini brownies, reinvented (GF, DF, V, lowcarb)
Hi Gluten Free Mama viewers! Rachel gave me this great opportunity to guest post on her blog this week while she is recovering from her recent MS flare. I am a creative foodie, ex-PCOS patient, mom of a little baby girl, scientist, coffee lover to name a few things that come to mind. I have been blogging about eating sugar-, gluten- and dairy-free on a moderate carb (160g CH/day) diet for years, with recipes that are mostly egg-free and vegan, too. Sugar-free means no sugar, not even unrefined ones and gluten-free means oat-free in my book.
I really want to share with you one of my readers favorite recipes for really loved this post: Please click the link for the directions, however, I will post the ingredients here so Rachel can help you with the american terms.
