Gluten Free Apple Coffee Cake

Apples and gluten free work so well together. Apples have a lot of moisture and flavor that give gluten free baked goods a great taste and texture.

I love experimenting with gluten free apple recipes this time of year. 

Gluten free apple bread, gluten free apple snack cake, and recipes like this gluten free apple coffee cake are all so good that no one will know that they are gluten free!

Gluten Free Apple Coffee Cake

What is Coffee Cake

Coffee cake is a moist cake that usually has a streusel type topping. It was originally made to eat with coffee or tea at breakfast. Coffee cake can be eaten anytime of day though. It can be eat at breakfast, brunch, lunch, snack, or dessert. 

Coffee cakes tend to be a little less sweet than a traditional cake. Coffee cakes do not have a frosting, but can occasional have a glaze drizzled on top.

Gluten Free Apple Coffee Cake

Can I use a gluten free blend in coffee cake?

The answer to that depends. In some coffee cake recipes a blend will work fine. For this recipe I spent time getting just the right ratio of individual flours for the best result.

I don’t just want good gluten free food, I want gluten free food that is so good that no one will know that it is gluten free. 

If you want to try a blend in this recipe you can, but for the best results use the individual flours in the recipe.

Gluten Free Dairy Free Apple Bread

Gluten free baking can be challenging, but I love a good challenge! I also love to share recipes that are so good no one will know that they are gluten free. 

This recipe actually combines two of my favorite type of recipes to come up with. It is gluten free and dairy free. It is also delicious!

Gluten Free Dairy Free Apple Bread

I sent this bread to a meeting that my husband had and no one in the group needed to eat gluten free or dairy free and everyone enjoyed it. One person even requested the recipe. 

When regular eaters love my gluten free recipes I know that I have a winner! 

Gluten Free Dairy Free Apple Bread

This bread is perfect for fall, but it is one of those recipes that is delicious all year long. 

Can you freeze apple bread?

Quick breads like this freeze well. You can bake the bread, let it cool, wrap it well, and freeze it. Or you can bake it, let it cool, slice it, and then wrap and freeze the individual pieces for easy lunches, snacks, or desserts. 

Can I use a gluten free flour blend in place of the individual gluten free flours?

The answer to that is yes, but you might not get the same results. When I develop a recipe like this I try several different combinations and ingredients. This specific bread took four tries to get the right combination of gluten free flours to get the results I was happy with.

So yes a gluten free flour blend will probably work in place of the individual flours and xanthan gum, but for the best results use the individual gluten free flours. 

Need some more gluten free apple recipes? 

Now for the recipe!

Pizza Meatballs combine all the flavors of pizza in an easy make ahead kid and freezer friendly meal!

Pizza Meatballs

This recipe has been on my computer ready to post for months, but I have avoided sharing the recipe because of the pictures.

I think I have tried three times to get good pictures of these meatballs and all three times they were less than perfect. And by less than perfect I mean that the meatballs were great, it was the pictures that were not all that great. 

First of all meatballs don’t photograph well. They are not the prettiest of foods in real life. Getting them to look good in a photo is even harder. 

Pizza Meatballs

But the reality is that most of my pictures are almost always taken right before we eat them. Desserts, muffins, and recipes like homemade granola are easy to make ahead and photograph. Dinner not so much. 

The pictures for my dinner recipes are pretty much always taken right before dinner. I don’t have time to stage a photo because my family is standing around waiting to eat whatever I am trying to photograph. That makes it hard to get good pictures. 

Pizza Meatballs

Yes, I could make dinners ahead of time and photograph them and reheat them for my family like many bloggers now do, but that just doesn’t work for my life right now. 

Instead you get photos that are less than perfect because the pictures are taken minutes before my family eats the food. But I am hoping that makes my recipes seem more doable. If you make these meatballs they will look almost exactly like the meatballs in my pictures. 

The reality is that they won’t be fancy, but they will be delicious!

Now let’s talk about these pizza meatballs! 

Pizza Meatball Recipe

Can I freeze meatballs?

Yes, meatballs freeze great. You can freeze them before or after cooking. Meatballs are one of my favorite make ahead freezer friendly meals. My gluten free meatballs, Asian meatballs, and Mexican meatballs all freeze well. 

How should I serve pizza meatballs?

My family eats pizza meatballs several different ways. We eat them as is with a couple of side dishes. I add sauce to the cooked meatballs and we eat them over pasta or rice. Pizza meatballs are also great as pizza meatball sub sandwiches. 

Can I use different types of meat in meatballs?

Yes, you can. I like a combination of two or three kinds of meat, but you can easily change that up. I usually make these with ground beef and sausage, but you could use just ground beef or make them with ground turkey or chicken. We use pepperoni in these as well, but you could use salami or ham if you prefer to use those. This is one of those recipes that you can really change up. 

No matter how you make these I think your family will love them!

Pizza Meatballs

Pizza Meatballs

Pizza meatballs are an easy make ahead kid friendly meal.

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 35 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1 pound ground breakfast sausage
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup chopped pepperoni ( or use small salad size pepperoni)
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup potato flakes
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 2 cloves minced garlic

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line two baking sheets with foil. Set aside. You don't have to line baking sheets with foil, but it makes clean up easier.
  3. In a large bowl combine all ingredients. Mix together well. I usually use my hands to mix this because it combines the ingredients better.
  4. Roll mixture into 1 1/2 to 2 inch balls. I use a cookie scoop so that the meatballs are even in size.
  5. Bake for 35-45 minutes. Smaller meatballs will take around 35 minutes. Larger meatballs will take closer to 45 minutes.
  6. Remove from cookie sheet.
  7. Serve as is, with sauce over pasta or rice, or as meatball sub sandwiches.

Notes

Meatballs freeze great. You can freeze them before cooking or cook as directed, cool completely and freeze.

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.

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

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.
