This easy to make gluten free chocolate bread is also dairy free!

Gluten Free Chocolate Bread

Gluten free can be easy and delicious. It can also be food that everyone enjoys. 

This chocolate bread is based on one of our favorite gluten free chocolate cake recipes. So this gluten free chocolate bread is basically cake made in a loaf pan. That makes it a dessert. Although my son has been known to eat it for breakfast. 

Gluten Free Chocolate Bread Recipe

I made this bread during the holidays and served it to company and no one knew that it was gluten free until I told them it was. 

I served it with my gluten free friendship bread, gluten free lemon bread, and my gluten free applesauce bread

I sliced the breads up and served them on a big platter. It made for a simple, yet impressive dessert to set out. 

Gluten Free Chocolate Bread Dairy Free

One of the reasons that I like to make dessert breads like this is that they freeze really well. When I make a recipe I can easily freeze a loaf to use later.

When we have company, or I need a dessert to take somewhere, I can just take it out of the freezer, slice, and serve. 

Can you use a gluten free blend in gluten free quick breads? 

I get asked that question a lot and the answer is that it depends. 

The reality is that I have found that in order to get the best desserts you need individual gluten free flours not blends. That is against popular opinion but I have found it true more times than not. 

Yes, a blend will get you good results. Using the individual flours will get you the best results. They will get you a dessert that will have people coming back for more. 

For this recipe it is worth it to make it just as it is written with the individual flours. 

Gluten Free Chocolate Bread

Is gluten free chocolate bread dairy free? 

Yes, this gluten free chocolate bread is dairy free as long as you use dairy free chocolate chips. 

Is the mayonnaise necessary in this recipe? 

Yes, you need the mayonnaise. It is the fat in the recipe. There is no butter or oil in this recipe. The mayo is the secret ingredient that keeps this bread moist and delicious. It is the ingredient that helps make this so good that no one will know it is gluten free.

The Best Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

I have eaten gluten free for over ten years. In the last ten years I have tried so many gluten free cookie recipes.

Some have been from cookbooks, some have been from other people, and many I have developed on my own.

Many of those recipes were good. Some were so good that I shared them here with you. 

But it took me ten years to say that I think I finally found the best gluten free chocolate chip cookie recipe. 

Yes, I know calling something the best is risky. But these cookies are so good!

Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookie

Why do I call them the Best Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies?

I call them that because people love them. People that eat gluten free and people that don’t. 

My daughter recently made these for a movie night at a friend’s house. My two daughters were the only ones that ate gluten free, but since we don’t cook with regular flour at our house, she made these cookies and took them. 

Everyone loved them. Multiple of the guys had three or four cookies. You don’t eat three of four cookies unless they are good. 

You might eat one or two to be polite, but eating four cookies pretty much says that you really liked them. 

When I found out that the cookies were a hit. Not just with my family, but with a group of other people as well, I knew I had found the best gluten free cookie recipe. 

This recipe took some work though to get just right. 

The original recipe came from Martha Stewart’s Cookie Perfection Cookbook. The cookbook is not a gluten free cookbook. It is a regular cookbook and the original recipe is a regular recipe, not a gluten free one, so I came up with a gluten free version. 

I love doing this to a recipe. I start with a great recipe and I convert it to gluten free. Most of the cookbooks that I own are not gluten free cookbooks. They are regular cookbooks that I take the recipes from and make them gluten free. 

Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

I will often use a gluten free flour blend in recipes when I make them. You will see many of my recipes that contain a blend like Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 gluten free blend.

I will often start by trying a blend in a recipe and if I don’t like the results I try the individual gluten free flours.

The reality is that I have found that in order to get the best desserts you need individual gluten free flours not blends. That is against popular opinion but I have found it true more times than not. 

Yes, a blend will get you good results. Using the individual flours will get you the best results. They will get you a cookie that will have people coming back for more. 

For this recipe it is worth it to make it just as it is written with the individual flours. 

Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

There are two things that make this recipe the best gluten free chocolate chip cookie recipe. 

The first is the amount of chocolate. These have 4 1/2 cups of chocolate chips. That is what Martha Stewart’s original recipe had and I left it the same for the gluten free version. Believe me it is worth it to use that much chocolate. 

The other thing is the individual flours, especially the sweet rice flour. Using sweet rice flour in gluten free baked goods gives you the best taste and texture.

It can be hard to find, but it is worth it. You can find it at some Asian or health food type stores, but I usually get it from Amazon or directly from Bob’s Red Mill

Easy Overnight Eggs

Easy Overnight Eggs make breakfast easy and delicious. They are easy to make and can be made for a crowd. They would be perfect for a simple weekend breakfast or brunch. 

My favorite way to serve overnight eggs though is for dinner. Yes, dinner. Breakfast for dinner is always a hit at my house. 

Serving breakfast for dinner is an easy inexpensive meal that everyone loves. You can serve pancakes, waffles, breakfast casserole, french toast casserole, or an easy make ahead egg dish like today’s recipe. 

Overnight eggs can be made in the morning or sometime during the day. Then you can just put them in the oven at dinner time. 

Serve with bread or fruit and you have a simple inexpensive dinner.

  • cheese
  • oil
  • onions
  • peppers
  • mushrooms
  • eggs
  • flour or gf flour blend
  • milk
  • ham, cooked bacon, or cooked sausage (optional) 

Are overnight eggs gluten free? 

Overnight eggs contain flour so they are not gluten free, but they can easily be made gluten free by using a gluten free flour blend. I make them using Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Flour Blend and it works great. 

Can overnight eggs be doubled or halved? 

Yes, you can easily make a double batch of overnight eggs to feed a crowd. Or you can cut the recipe in half and make it in an 8×8 pan. 

Do overnight eggs have to be made ahead?

No overnight eggs do not have to be made ahead. You can just make the recipe and bake it.

Gluten Free Biscuit Bread with Cheese

Before going gluten free I loved to make biscuit bread or a biscuit cheese bread all the time.

It made a great side dish for so many meals. It went especially well with soup during the winter. 

Gluten Free Biscuit Cheese Bread Recipe

Over the last few years I have tried making many different kinds of gluten free biscuit bread. Some had cheese and some didn’t. Some turned out okay and some were disasters. 

I tried some of the recipes with gluten free blends and some with individual gluten free flours. The results were mixed with both.

It wasn’t until recently that I finally found a version that was good enough to share with you. 

This version is so good that you will not know that it is gluten free. My husband and son, who eat gluten, loved it. 

Gluten Free Biscuit Cheese Bread

  • baking soda
  • egg
  • buttermilk
  • butter
  • cheese

All the ingredients are fairly basic ingredients. You probably always have most of them on hand or can easily buy them. That makes this a great recipe to make when you need a little something extra to go with dinner.

Crock Pot Baked Beans and Sausage

Some of the best recipes are the simple ones like this Crock Pot Baked Beans and Sausage recipe. The type of recipes that contain only a few ingredients that you almost always have on hand are the ones we turn to the most. 

Crock Pot Baked Beans and Sausage is a recipe that I have been making for years. I have probably been making this recipe for close to twenty years. I think I first adapted the recipe from an old Taste of Home recipe.

I love this recipe because it is a simple and basic dinner that goes together in no time. It is not a pretty dinner, but it is delicious. 

Crock Pot Beans and Sausage

When my kids were little they loved me to make this for dinner.

This recipe also works great for have taking to church dinners and potlucks. I have taken it to so many potluck type meals over the years. 

The recipe is a fairly basic baked bean recipe with kielbasa added to make it a main dish. 

Crock Pot Baked Beans and Sausage

Recipes like this are so nice because you can put it quickly in the crock pot early in the day and have dinner waiting at 6:00 or whenever time you need it.

Crock Pot Baked Beans and Sausage is also an inexpensive meal to serve, especially if you find the kielbasa on sale. 

This is also an easy gluten free meal. All you have to do to make this gluten free is to make sure that the kielbasa is gluten free.
