Gluten Free Dairy Free Zucchini Bread

Gluten free dairy free can be easy and delicious! This gluten free dairy free zucchini bread is so good that no one will know that it is gluten and dairy free. 

Gluten Free Dairy Free Zucchini Bread

Zucchini bread is one of those classic recipes that has been around for years. There are all kinds of different versions of zucchini bread out there. 

Most of the classic zucchini bread recipes include basic ingredients. Some more modern recipes have extra add ins or special ingredients to make them fit a special diet. 

Zucchini bread is one of those recipes that takes me back to my childhood. My parents always had a big garden and zucchini was one of the things they almost always grew. 

If you know anything about zucchini you know that you often have way more of it than you need or can use. 

Whenever my mom had lots of zucchini she would make zucchini bread and zucchini cake. Both were favorites of ours growing up. 

Gluten Free Dairy Free Zucchini Bread Recipe

I am not sure what recipe my mom used all those years ago, but I know it was a classic recipe with basic ingredients. She kept her recipes simple. 

I have several zucchini bread recipes that we love including my regular zucchini bread recipe and my gluten free chocolate zucchini bread. but over the summer my daughter requested that I make something that was both gluten free and dairy free. 

So earlier this summer I got to work on coming up with a gluten free dairy free zucchini bread. 

Gluten Free Dairy Free Zucchini Bread Recipe

It took some work, but I finally came up with a gluten free dairy free zucchini bread that we love! It is so good no one will know that it is gluten and dairy free. 

I used individual gluten free flours in this and I think that you get the best results when you do that. If you want to use a blend instead I would use Bob’s Red Mill 1 t0 1 Gluten Free Blend in place of the gf flours and xanthan gum.

Everyday Adventures

It has been a long time since I did an Everyday Adventures post or even a everyday favorites post. Today I decided to combine the two and share some updates on our everyday life and what I have been doing and loving over the summer. 

Let’s start with catching up on real life and a family update. My husband and I celebrated our twenty-fifth anniversary in July. We combined a short trip to the beach and a trip to Oregon to visit my family. It was a great trip.

We even took a few selfies, which is something we rarely do. I do not like having my picture taken. Since we took a few pictures though I thought I would share a picture of the two of us, which is something I have probably only done a couple of times in the last eleven years of blogging! 

I can’t believe that it has been twenty five years. It really does go by so fast. Twenty five years ago I got married and moved half way across the country from all my family and the small town I grew up in. I was young and had no idea what an adventure was ahead of me. But I wouldn’t change any of it because it has made me who I am. 

Marriage is not easy, but it is so worth it. I could write so much about marriage and what the last twenty five years had taught me. But that is for another time. 🙂 Here is hoping for many more years. Years that I am sure will include ups and downs, good times and bad, and tears along with laughter. 

And now for an update on my kids.

When I started this website way back in 2008 my oldest was ten. Now she is a grown women. In fact, all three kids are now basically grown. 

They are all in college. They have all made the decision to stay at home and go to school for now. I know that will probably change, but it is saving them a ton of money and we are happy that they have been able to do that so far.

My oldest is in her last year of college. My other daughter is about half way done, and my son just started college classes last week.

That all means that my homeschooling journey is ending. It is a strange place to be. Some of you that homeschool probably know how I feel. It has been an eighteen year journey that I am ready and yet not ready to be over. 

Hopefully the end of homeschooling will allow me more time to focus on website and online things. I have a long to do list and a long list of ideas that I can’t wait to get started on. 

Peach Pie Bars

If you haven’t made my peach pie bars you need to! I have made these three or four times already this year. They make a great dessert to serve company or take to a picnic or potluck. If you are gluten free I also shared the recipe for my gluten free peach pie bars

This was our book haul from vacation…We love visiting book stores on vacation. This summer we found some great new and used books on vacation. Our suitcases were a little heavier coming home than they were when we left. 

I might have talked about this Kumbucha before, but I have been drinking it almost every day this summer, so it deserves another mention. 

I don’t like tea and I don’t like beer. As in I really, really, don’t like the taste of them. Kombucha tastes like a combination of those two things and I have struggled with finding a Kombucha that I like.

It either has a strong tea taste or a strong fermented beer taste. 

Over the last year and a half I have taken four rounds of very strong antibiotics for diverticulitis. That means I am now trying to work on my gut health. 

Kumbucha is supposed to be good for gut health, so I am learning to enjoy it. After trying a lot of different brands I can easily say that Humm is my favorite. I still don’t love it, but it has made a huge difference for me. I can definitely tell the difference when I drink it and when I don’t. 

Humm is made in Oregon. If you live on the West Coast you can find it all kinds of places. The only place I have been able to find a good selection of it in Oklahoma is at Target.

If you have tried Kumbucha and had trouble liking it, give Humm a try. The apple berry, the pomegranate lemonade, strawberry lemonade, and the mango are my favorite flavors. 

If you love both reading and cooking I shared some of my favorite books about food and cooking this week on our book site. It was a fun list to put together. 

If you love reading or want to read more we would love to have you sign up for our book newsletter. My daughter and I now have over 400 book reviews on our site. We love to talk books with other book lovers! You can find all our book reviews here or see our blog posts and book list here

And the apple cake in the picture is my apple snack cake. It is one of my favorite apple dessert to make. 

Apple Snack Cake

We have several apple trees and they all did well this year. We have had a ton of apples and I have been making all kinds of apple recipes. I will be sharing a few new recipes soon. But if you are looking for an easy and delicious apple recipe try my apple snack cake

Gluten Free Little Debbie Fudge Brownie

It is back to school time. School can be challenging for kids that need to eat gluten free. They want fun and delicious foods like all the other kids. 

If you need an easy fun lunchbox treat or after school snack give my Gluten Free Little Debbie Brownies a try. Your kids will love these. Adult love them too. These taste so good that no one will know that they are gluten free! 

They also freeze great so you can easily cut them and freeze them into individual lunchbox or after school treats. 

I hope that you enjoyed a look into our summer and our everyday life. I know readers, especially long time readers, love these type of old style blogging post, so I will try to share these type of posts more often. 

I hope you have a great weekend! 

No Bake Chocolate Oat Bars

No Bake Chocolate Oat Bars are an easy no bake treat that your family is sure to love!

No Bake Chocolate Oat Bars

No bake chocolate oat bars combines chocolate and oats in a simple no bake dessert. 

I made these recently when we had company for dinner and everyone loved them. It was hot outside and I didn’t want to turn on the oven to make dessert. I also didn’t have a lot of time to make something. These no bake bars worked perfectly. 

No Bake Chocolate Oat Bars

Don’t those look good! My kids can eat a pan of these in no time. 

Why make no bake desserts?

Recipes that do not require the oven are perfect for the summer. No one wants to heat up the house when it is 100 degrees outside. 

No bake desserts are also great because they are quick and easy to make. No bake cookies and no bake cookie bars are some of our favorite desserts to make all year long because they are an easy last minute dessert or snack. 

No bake recipes are also good recipes to use when cooking kids and teens because they usually only contain a few basic ingredients. 

No Bake Chocolate Oat Bars

Can these no bake bars be made gluten free? 

Yes these no bake bars can be made gluten free simply by using gluten free quick oats. There is no flour in these so all you need to do is use gluten free oats.

Read labels to also make sure that your chocolate is gluten free, but most chocolate is gluten free. 

No Bake Chocolate Oat Bars

Can no bake bars be made peanut butter free? 

Yes these no bake bars can be made peanut butter free. In fact, that is how I made them. My oldest daughter has a peanut allergy so I made these with Wow Butter. Sun Butter would also work in these. 

If you need other peanut butter free no bake recipes be sure to try my peanut butter free no bake cookies

Menu Plan

Easy Pasta Sauce

Schools are starting and summer is winding down, but the weather is still hot in most parts of the country. That is probably because even though what we consider to be summer is almost over, the calendar says it will be summer for another month.

That means we have plenty of time to fit in lots of summer salads, easy meals, and grilled meats. This week I am focusing on all kinds of meals perfect for the last month of summer.

This week I also put some kid friendly breakfasts on the plan. That is because they freeze great and it is the perfect time to fill your freezer for easier breakfasts for back to school.

Chocolate and raspberries go together perfectly in these gluten free chocolate raspberry muffins. They are so good that you will not know they are gluten free.

Gluten Free Chocolate Raspberry Muffins

Chocolate and raspberries are one of my favorite combinations. They go so well together. When I can combine them into a gluten free treat it is even better. 

Gluten Free Chocolate Raspberry Muffins

One of the things we love about muffins is that they work well for breakfast, lunch, snacks, and even dessert. 

When I make gluten free muffins though I want them to be so good that no one will know that they are gluten free. I want them to be muffins so good that my non gluten free son and husband will enjoy them too. 

Gluten Free Chocolate Raspberry Muffins

These muffins are just that. They are so good that even my non gluten free husband and son love them!

If you love chocolate and raspberries as much as I do than these are a must make gluten free treat. 

Can you freeze gluten free muffins? 

One of the questions that I often get asked is if you can freeze gluten free muffins. Yes you can freeze gluten free muffins.

Muffins, including these gluten free chocolate raspberry muffins, freeze great. Bake them and let them cool completely. Then wrap them up or place them in a zip top type bag and freeze.

What if I don’t like raspberries? 

I know not everyone shares my love of raspberries. If you don’t like raspberries you can leave them out or use a different fruit. If you like blueberries and enjoy blueberries and chocolate together blueberries would work well in these muffins for a delicious gluten free chocolate blueberry muffin.

Make Ahead Breakfast Ideas

Need some easy make ahead breakfast ideas? I am sharing some of my favorite make ahead breakfast that all freeze well.

Make Ahead Freezer Friendly Breakfasts

The saying is that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but most people struggle to get breakfast on the table everyday.

In the middle of the morning craziness it can be hard to serve a breakfast that everyone will enjoy. 

One of the ways that I have found to make the mornings a little less crazy is to make breakfast ahead of time. I love to take a few hours each month to put a few breakfast things in the freezer.

It makes our mornings so much easier when we can just quickly grab and reheat something before starting our day.

Today I am sharing a few of our favorite make-ahead breakfasts. These recipes are all easy to make and kids love them!

Peaches and Cream Baked Oatmeal

I have talked about my freezer baked oatmeal before, but I have to mention it again because it really is one of my favorite make-ahead breakfasts. You might have guessed that my family loves baked oatmeal and that I have quite a few recipes.

Over the years, I have shared over fifteen baked oatmeal recipes. One of the things I love about baked oatmeal is how easy it is to make ahead.

You can easily mix up all the ingredients that night before and pour them into a 9×13 pan. Refrigerate it overnight and bake in the morning.

You can also make it and bake it and just reheat it throughout the week. I love doing this and I often make two or three pans and keep them in fridge for my kids to reheat during the week for a quick and easy breakfast.

Baked oatmeal also freezes great. Just bake it, let it cool, freeze it, defrost, and reheat as needed.

Here are some of my favorite baked oatmeal recipes.

Pancake Muffins

Pancake muffins have been a favorite of my kids for years. Kids and adults love these. If you have never made pancake muffins you need to. They make pancakes easy!

banana waffles

Banana Waffles are another favorite of ours that I like to make in a large batch to make ahead and freeze. My kids just take them out and reheat them in the microwave, toaster, or toaster oven for breakfast.

I also have a gluten free banana waffle that is so good no one will know it is gluten free.

Maple Sausage Pancake Muffins from LynnsKitchenAdventures.com

Maple sausage pancake muffins are a little different version of pancake muffins that my kids love. You can easily make these in a large batch to reheat during the week or make a large batch to freeze. So easy and so good!

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies

Cookies for breakfast? Yes, please! My kids love these Peanut Butter Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies and they freeze great!

Banana Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies

Banana Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies are another breakfast cookie that my kids love. I mean really how can anyone not like a cookie for breakfast.

breakfast bowls

I am sure many of you  have seen the breakfast bowls in the freezer section at the grocery store. Did you know that you can easily make them at home? The homemade version is cheaper to make and lets you control the ingredients.

They are easy to make in a large batch to reheat during the week. I also love to freeze homemade breakfast bowls in small containers that we can just take out of the freezer as needed. My husband also likes to take these for lunch because he can just heat them up at work.

Light and Fluffy Waffles

Waffles in general are a favorite breakfast of ours. We love to eat them as breakfast, breakfast for dinner, and freeze them ahead for reheating during the week. I have shared quite a few waffle recipes over the years including a light and fluffy waffle, a dairy free waffle, and a gluten free dairy free waffle. All three are delicious and freeze great!

Peanut Butter and Jelly Baked Oatmeal Muffins

Peanut Butter and Jelly Oatmeal Breakfast Muffins combine the classic flavors of a PB&J into a delicious breakfast muffin. These can be made ahead and reheated during the week or made ahead and frozen.

homemade frozen breakfast burritos

I mentioned Homemade Frozen Breakfast Burritos last week in my easy freezer friendly meals post, but I had to mention them again because they are one of my son’s favorite freezer meals. My husband also loves these for breakfast and even for lunch. 

Eggs and Sausage is one of my favorite things to keep in the freezer. I love how easy they are to make in a big batch and how easy they are to freeze. Plus, I just love to eat them. You can eat them as is or make a breakfast burrito out of them. I also love to make and freeze my scrambled eggs with onions, sausage, and peppers

What is your favorite breakfast to make ahead or keep in the freezer?

Freezer Meals That Make Busy Days Easier

Stocking your freezer with easy kid friendly meals will make busy days easier! 

It is back to school time!

Many areas of the country are started back to school this week or start back to school in the next week or two.

If you live in the northern part of the United States you might not start back to school until after Labor Day, but that will be here before you know it.

Back to school means back to normal routine. That is something I actually look forward to. I like routines and schedules. But it also means that schedules get busy with school, homework, and lots of activities.

We all want to serve our family home cooked meals, but getting food on the table can sometimes be a challenge with crazy schedules.

This week I want to help you save time in the kitchen. I want to help make your busy life easier with some easy freezer meal ideas.

Today we are covering freezer meals for dinner. 

Spending a few hours here and there stocking your freezer is well worth the time it takes. It makes crazy days so much easier because you can just pull a meal out of the freezer.

It also helps you avoid the drive thru, which will save you money and help you eat healthier.

If you don’t have a lot of time for freezer cooking, just double recipes on the days that you can and put the extra one in the freezer. 

If you are making chili just make an extra batch and freeze it. If you are making a pasta casserole make two and freeze one. You don’t need a full day to stock your kitchen. You can easily do it without spending a lot of time.

Now for some of my favorite easy freezer meals! 

Freezer Burrito Casserole

Freezer Burrito Casserole is an easy dinner to make several pans of. I almost always make two of these and we have one for dinner and I freeze the other one.

5 ingredient freezer burritos

Freezer Burritos– This recipe one of my son’s favorite things for me to keep in the freezer. 

homemade frozen breakfast burritos

Homemade Frozen Breakfast Burritos– Another one of my son’s favorite things for me to keep in the freezer. He will eat these for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. 

Chicken Burrito Casserole

My Chicken Burrito Casserole also freezes well.

Gluten Free Meatloaf

Meatloaf is always a great freezer meal. I like to cook it and then freeze it, but you can just as easily make it, form it into a loaf, freeze it, and then cook it when you are ready to serve it. This is my favorite meatloaf recipe.

gluten free meatballs

Meatballs are another great freezer meal. You can freezer then cooked or uncooked. They work great because you can serve them so many ways. With sauce over pasta, for meatball sandwiches, with bbq sauce over them, and more. This is my favorite meatball recipe.

I have been making taco pasta for years and it freezes very well. Make one for dinner and freeze one for two easy meals your family is sure to love!

Spoon Burgers

Sloppy joes are a favorite in my family! We love them over bread, buns, or baked potatoes. They are an easy recipe to make in a big batch and freeze in zip top bags. My spoon burgers are a nice change from regular sloppy joes.

Chili is another meal I freeze all the time. I have lots of different versions that I make, but we love my slow cooked chili and my slow cooked chili without beans.

Crock Pot Taco Soup

Soups like taco soup are always great to keep in the freezer. You can freeze them in large containers for a full meal or smaller containers perfect for taking for lunch.

homemade slow cooked refried beans

It is no secret that we love Mexican type food and my freezer almost always has taco meat, salsa chicken, and homemade refried beans in it. With those things in the freezer I can easy put together tacos, taco salad, taco bowls, enchiladas, nachos, and so many other meals.

Freezer Baked Oatmeal

Baked Oatmeal– Yes, you can freeze baked oatmeal. It works great for breakfast or breakfast for dinner. 

Keeping a freezer full of meals has saved me so much time and money over the years. We avoid the drive thru and eat so much healthier with a well stocked freezer!
