Blueberry Chia Oat Donuts (Gluten Free)

Donuts for breakfast!

Yummy right? I mean who doesn’t want to start their day with a donut?

As you may know, I love to bake and I just recently picked up a large 6-donut pan to make these delicious beauties. I have a small donut pan which makes the cutest little donuts ever, but I needed to step up my game. 

Now don’t worry! If you don’t have a large donut pan, this recipe will work in a muffin pan too. So it’s all good. It’s just a little more fun eating donuts for breakfast. You almost feel like you’re indulging in a real treat. 

But… these donuts aren’t sugary-processed-food-type donuts. These are made with wheat free oat flour, fibre filled chia, antioxidant rich blueberries and anti-inflammatory, protein filled hemp seeds. Now that’s my kinda donut!

Plus, they taste delicious, are incredibly easy to make and are great for a grab and go breakfast when you’re rushing out the door.

Ingredients
  1. 3/4 cup wheat free oat flour (grind rolled oats in blender)
  2. 1/2 cup chia seeds
  3. 3 tablespoons hemp seeds
  4. 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  5. 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  6. 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  7. 1/2 teaspoon ground vanilla (I use Giddy Yoyo)
  8. 1/3 cup maple syrup
  9. 1/3 cup almond milk
  10. 1/3 - 1/2 cup blueberries
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 300F and light grease a 6-cavity donut pan with coconut oil
  2. In a large bowl, combine oat flour, chia, hemp, baking powder, cinnamon, vanilla and salt.
  3. Add in maple syrup, almond milk, and stir until well combined.
  4. Add in blueberries and gently fold in.
  5. The batter will be slightly running. This is normal.
  6. Spoon the batter into the donut pan, filling each cavity to the top or just about.
  7. Bake the donuts for roughly 23-25 minutes, until firm to touch.
  8. Cool the donuts in the pan for about 10 minutes before removing.
Notes
  1. *To make these gems more protein rich, try adding in 1 scoop of your favourite protein powder. I like using Progressive Nutritional Organic Whey or Brown Rice protein powder. You may need to add in a few extra tablespoons of almond milk if adding in protein to thin out the batter slightly.

Healthy Homemade Turtles (Gluten Free + Grain Free)

You like chocolate, right?

Who doesn’t?

If you’re a woman who’s suffering with PMS, then you might even like chocolate more so than the average person! Don’t worry, this is normal and common. 

There’s a good chance your cravings for chocolate are indicating a few things – 

1. you need some magnesium (which helps to relieve cramps, bonus!) 
2. you need to balance your blood sugar more effectively

I know you’ve heard me say it before and I’m going to say it again, “chocolate contains a boat-load of magnesium, and magnesium is needed for detoxification and is great for relieving cramps, tension and stress.” It’s true. I hate to repeat this over and over and over again, but if you’re not taking magnesium already, well get some! I love the magnesium bisglycinate powder by CanPrev.

Especially if you’re suffering with PMS symptoms, dealing with a lot of stressors, have issues with sleep, and just can’t seem to calm down, magnesium will be your saviour! Trust me on this. 

In fact, during the second half of your cycle (the luteal phase), magnesium stores tend to be depleted due to fluctuating hormone levels, which tends to lead to more bloating and migraines. Oh! It can also help to balance out those nasty PMS monster mood swings you might be suffering with too! 

It’s really our “hormones” that are causing us to crave for chocolate. 

So what’s a girl to do then? Well, just eat chocolate!

Now I don’t mean just any chocolate! I mean high quality unprocessed chocolate. And I also don’t want you to go overboard. I just want you to give yourself a quick little healthy chocolate fix and then be on your merry way. Plus, supplement with some magnesium and you’ll minimize those cravings and won’t feel the need to overdo it with the chocolate. Make sense?

Aside from the cravings and magnesium deficiency, it’s important that you balance your blood sugar levels too. 

A few important things to note when it comes to blood sugar management:

1. Are you eating enough protein with your meals?
2. Are you eating enough healthy fats?
3. Are you getting in enough greens and veggies?
4. Are you getting in enough fiber (from veggies, flax, chia?)
5. Are you drinking enough water? roughly 2-3L a day?

These above 5 things are incredibly important for blood sugar management, so be sure to follow them!

There are ZERO processed ingredients in this recipe (because obviously I would never do that to you and your hormones). 

These turtles contain a hit of magnesium from the quality chocolate, plus fiber from dates, and healthy blood sugar stabilizing fats from the almond butter. You just can’t go wrong with this deliciousness!

Now onto the recipe!

Double Chocolate Banana Salted Caramel Muffins (Gluten Free, Grain Free, Low Sugar)

It’s December 1st, aka. The month of baking!  I whipped up these Double Chocolate Banana Salted Caramel Muffins over the weekend – yes it’s a mouth full.

But I’ve been obsessed with using the Lily’s Sweets salted caramel chocolate chips in pretty much all my baking lately. All of Lily’s sweets chocolate is SUGAR FREE and you honestly cannot tell the difference! I order these off of NaturaMarket.

Now of course, you can always add more sweetness to this recipe if you like as cacao can be slightly bitter, but I much prefer them without the sweetness and the extra guilt.  Not to mention the insane cravings that start to follow once you consume too much sugar. Ever notice that? You go sugar free or low carb for a while and then – BAM – one bite of a sweet cake or cookie or piece of bread and your cravings come back full force?

It’s normal. Sugar triggers pleasure receptors in your brain, which cause you to want more and more and more.  This is why I like to keep my sugar intake very low and my fat intake high. It keeps my sugar cravings at bay, it helps to balance my blood sugar, it keeps my brain fuelled and it provides me with lots of energy. Plus, fat is incredibly important for hormonal health. 

Fats are structural components of some of the most important substances in the body, including prostaglandins, which are hormone-like substances that regulate many of the body’s functions. You need fats because they regulate the production of sex hormones, which can often be the reason why some teenage girls and women in general can experience amenorrhea (no period). 

High fat and low carb recipes are the main thing on the menu inside my Metabolic Reset program but they help to bust through sugar cravings like nobody’s business (and it might be going on sale real soon, so stay tuned 😉

😋 Here’s the recipe for ya!

Sweet Potato Pecan Muffins (Gluten Free, Paleo, Grain Free, Low Sugar)

Sweet potatoes are a regular in my house. You can mash them, roast them, bake with them and combine them with a variety of herbs or spices. Lately, I’ve been on a sweet potato kick as you might notice from this recipe below!

If you haven’t made these muffins yet, I encourage you to try them out asap. They’re sooooo good!

Sweet potatoes are rich in fibre, vitamin B6 and iron – all good things we need more of, especially the fibre. 

If you’re dealing with any digestive issues or constipation, I highly encourage you to start increasing your vegetable intake as well as getting in more water. I can’t tell you how many of my clients experience complete digestive relief by simply applying these 2 strategies. 

 

I ordered most of the ingredients for this recipe from NaturaMarket.ca 

  • The coconut flour
  • Baking Spices
  • Coconut Oil
  • Monk Fruit Sweetener (I love Lakanto for baking!)

 

 

I LOVE that NaturaMarket is a one-stop-shop for all things Gluten-Free, Paleo, Allergen Free and so much more. They have so many goodies on there, I pretty much shop with them weekly. So much so, that I reached out to see if my community can get a discount so you can try them out for yourself!

  • ⅓ cup pecan, roughly chopped
  • 3 tbsp shredded coconut

Pantry & Baking Essentials for Grain-Free + Gluten Free Cooking

We’re in full on Autumn mode here in Southern Ontario and the weather has turned cold and a little dreary….which means it’s the perfect time to hunker down, get cozy in the kitchen and try out some new recipes!

Today’s video is all about the main ingredients you’ll need to cook your way through my book The 30 Day Hormone Solution (if you have your copy, get it out and let’s dive in!!)

But this is also an awesome checklist of ingredients is for ANYONE who wants to stock up on…

  • Foods to support immunity, gut health & overall health, each and every day
  • Grain-free + Gluten-free options to help keep your blood sugar stable, and also to help if you’re suffering from any level of autoimmunity (grains can trigger inflammation for some people)
  • Staples + dried goods to always have on hand for cooking and baking

Let’s dive in…

Staple Foods Checklist

  • Variety of vegetables – cauliflower, kale & leafy greens, sweet potato, etc — variety is key. Right now, if fresh veggies aren’t available to you, try to source & keep some frozen veggies on hand
  • Variety of protein sources Meats, poultry, grass fed beef, free range eggs, wild caught fish (I didn’t mention beans & legumes in this video, but especially right now — these would be EXCELLENT choices to have on hand. In fact, I have a delicious recipe for Moroccan Chickpea Soup over on the blog that would be super filling and affordable to make)
  • It’s important to have a variety of protein sources because protein breaks down into amino acids, and those amino acids go onto to support your body & optimize your hormonal health
  • Variety of healthy fats, which include avocado oil, olive oil, grass fed butter, coconut oil, ghee, avocados, coconut milk, etc
  • Gluten-free & Grain-free flours – almond flour, cassava flour, coconut flour, tapioca starch, arrowroot flour (most of which can be ordered off of an online market like NaturaMarket — you can use the code HEALTHYHORMONES2020 to save 10% off your first order)
  • Nutrient dense seeds – hemp, flax and chia, which are great for your hormonal health, plus they’re high in fibre and therefore support detoxification
  • Cacao Powder – for baking — hello baking enthusiast over here!
  • Monk Fruit Sweetener – I like to keep my baking low to no sugar, so this helps me make that happen. I like the brand Lakanto (again, it can be ordered off an online market like NaturaMarket — you can use the code HEALTHYHORMONES2020 to save 10% off your first order)

  • NutPods — the most delicious dairy-free creamers OF LIFE! I use them in coffee’s and elixirs (again, it can be ordered off an online market like NaturaMarket)
  • Nut & Seed Butters – Cashew butter, tahini, sunflower seed butter, almond butter, etc
  • Lily’s sugar free chocolate chips — (again, it can be ordered off of NaturaMarket — you can use the code HEALTHYHORMONES2020 to save 10% off your first order.)
  • A real good quality sea salt (I love redmond real salt) sea salt is crucial for your adrenals. A great way to support your adrenals is with water + a pinch of sea salt + freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • Lastly, Bone Broth. I make my own! I have a 10-step process which can be found inside my book.

Almost everything I mentioned in this video can be ordered off of NaturaMarket — as you can probably tell by now, I pretty much order from them every week! They have all of my favourites, including NutPods (for elixirs) and Siete Chips…for snacking!

Grain Free Everything Bagels (Grain Free, Gluten Free, Dairy Free)

Okay Quarantiners! You need some GRAIN FREE EVERYTHING BAGELS IN YOUR LIFE! Been making these for months now and have mastered them. Meaning – it’s time to share them with you. 

I took grains out of my diet a few years ago when I was first diagnosed with Hashimoto’s.

Grains can actually be an inflammatory trigger for many, causing digestive upset, indigestion and bloating. This is especially the case for those suffering with any level of autoimmunity. When I removed them, my own bloating reduced significantly.

Now, if you’ve been a part of my community for a while, you know that I’m a huge baking enthusiast.

When I initially went grainfree, I was a little worried that I wouldn’t be able to do as much baking as I’d like…but, I rose to the challenge and started testing new recipes in the kitchen.

These everything bagels are grain free, gluten free and dairy free. They’re also lower on the glycemic index than a classic bagel, they’re loaded with way more nutrients, and they are downright delicious too! 

I love to whip up a breakfast sandwich with these babies. Give them a try and let me know what you think! 

Grain Free Everything Bagels

Ok Quarantiners! You need some GRAIN FREE EVERYTHING BAGELS IN YOUR LIFE! Been making these for months now and have mastered them. Meaning - it’s time to share them with you

Author: Samantha Gladish

Ingredients

  • 1 cup arrowroot flour
  • 1 cup cassava flour
  • 4 medium eggs
  • 1/4 cup avocado oil
  • 3 tbsp nut milk
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • to taste Everything But the Bagel Seasoning (or you could just sub for sesame seeds). I got my seasoning from Trader Joes.

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Meanwhile boil a big pot of water.In a blender, add all of the dough ingredients except for the EB seasoning.
    Once combined, (it might be a bit sticky) transfer the dough to your parchment lined baking sheet.
  • Use your hands to form a ball (again - it might be a bit sticky.
    I find leaving it for a few minutes helps make it less sticky, but you could always sprinkle some cassava flour on your parchment to help you better work with the dough).
  • Then separate into four equal parts. Use your hands to roll each part into a round ball, then using your thumb, poke a hole in the middle, keeping the bagel in tact.
    Gently flatten and form your bagel. Once the water is boiling, gently drop them in the water.
  • Once each one floats to the top (about one minute), transfer back to your baking sheet. Sometimes they can get stuck in the bottom of the pot, so pay attention and use your spatula to unstick it.
  • After all are placed onto the baking sheet, brush each bagel with a bit of olive oil (optional) and sprinkle with EB seasoning. Bake 23-25 minutes.

Sneak Peak Recipe: Protein Packed Crepes (Grain-Free, Gluten-Free)

This delicious recipe is one of the 60 grain-free recipes that can be found inside my book The 30-Day Hormone Solution. You can get your copy at hormonesolutionbook.com

Breakfast is hands down my favourite meal of the day. Often times I eat leftovers for breakfast. From salmon to chicken to beef, my morning meal is always protein packed. 

I often find that many of my clients eat too many ‘breakfasty’ type foods in the morning. I mean, I get it. This is what we were taught to eat. From cereals, to bagels to muffins and and drive thru breakfast sandwiches, these types of foods, do not fill you up, but instead fill you out!

Your body craves protein in the morning. It will help to stoke your metabolism plus balance your blood sugar which is key for weight loss, satiety between meals, managing PMS symptoms, headaches… and well, let’s just say that insulin is important in many (like hundreds) of important processes in the body. The more you manage it with food, the healthier you’ll feel overall. 

Managing insulin and blood sugar levels is at the core of everything I do with my clients. This is why women lose weight effortlessly and my clients have easier breezier cycles. 

So where do crepes fall into all of this?

Well, let’s face it. From pancakes, to waffles, to crepes, we all want a delicious breakfast, especially on the weekends when we can spend more time cooking in the morning and not feeling like we have to rush off to work. 

And as for crepes, it was my fiancé who really got me loving them. His family used to enjoy them regularly and for years now we’ve been trying to master the perfect gluten free crepe recipe. 

Trust me, there have been many fails, until this one!

This is the perfect crepe recipe ever! It’s so easy to make, it’s packed with protein from eggs and best of all, it’s gluten free! Now that’s the kind of crepe I want to indulge in. 

You can enjoy these crepes sweet or savoury. On the sweet side, I like to warm fresh berries and gently mush them, making a simple homemade jam or smearing on grass fed butter, almond butter and filling my crepe with fruit. 

On the savoury side you can make some scrambled eggs, sauté some spinach and roll it up in your crepe. 

The possibilities are endless! Hope you enjoy these crepes as much as we do 😉 

Protein Packed Crepes (Grain-Free, Gluten-Free)
Yields 5
Write a review
Print
Ingredients
  1. 4 eggs
  2. 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
  3. 1/2 cup tapioca flour
  4. 1/2 cup almond flour
  5. 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  6. 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  7. Pinch of sea salt
  8. Coconut oil, for oiling pan
Instructions
  1. Combine all ingredients into a large bowl (minus the coconut oil) and whisk together until smooth. A few lumps may remain, that's ok.
  2. Heat a small amount of coconut oil in a skillet or crepe pan over medium heat.
  3. Add the batter to the pan using a soup ladle or 1/4 cup measuring cup, tilting the pan gently to evenly spread out the batter. You want a thin layer covering your pan. It's like making a pancake, but a thin and large pancake!
  4. Cook until the edges start to set, then gently flip and cook on the other side for about 1-2 minutes.
  5. Transfer the fresh crepe onto a plate or wire rack to cool and or eat right away, while still warm. Make remaining crepes with batter and spread on your favourite toppings!
Notes
  1. *We use a fairly large crepe pan which gives us approximately 5 crepes. Depending on the size of your pan, you can make smaller ones and more of them.
  2. *You can refrigerate any leftovers and keep in the fridge for 2-3 days.
