Lectin-Free “Graham” Crackers or Digestive Biscuits

Hello from Denmark. I’m here missing a lot of my usual treats I had in the US, but that only motivates me to create more. I haven’t missed crackers in my life so far, there were plenty of options in the US and my Sweet Potato Crackers are better than any store bought crackers I have ever had. But I missed something else: biscuits. Now, if you are reading this in the US, you think of something different when you read or hear biscuits. But what I mean my biscuits is the what you might call crackers, however there is a big difference between biscuits and crackers. Crackers are really crunchy, while biscuits are more floury. This recipe is what you would call “graham crackers”, or what in Europe we would call “digestive biscuits”.

Rhubarb Breakfast Cake (Gluten-free, sugar-free)

Disclosure: this cake started as a Peach Breakfast Cake but since my first attempt with peaches I made some improvements to the batter but I wasn’t able to find organic peaches anymore. One day I saw rhubarb in stores (it’s popular here in Denmark) and I felt it could be a good fit. And oh wow, that was perfect. So Rhubarb Breakfast Cake it is.

Sweet Potato Brownie, Vegan, Low Histamine

As I’m writing this I’m stuck in the house in Dallas due to the corona virus situation. I’ve been baking a lot these days and usually part of what I make, I freeze. This gives me the opportunity to use a lot of the ingredients I have around the house before our big move to Denmark, and at the same time we have a back-up just in case. These lectin-free sweet potato brownies are amazing because they only require a few ingredients, and it leaves room for flexibility in case you don’t have one of the ingredients.

Lectin-Light Adzuki Beans Brownie with Olive Oil and Macadamia Nuts

There is a big preconception out there, that if you are following the Plant Paradox program you can’t eat beans. To quote Dr. Steven Gundry, “you can eat beans, just detoxify them first”. So, if you have passed Phase 1 and Phase 2 of the Plant Paradox and willing to give Phase 3 a try, beans and legumes are a new fascinating world to explore. It didn’t take me long to use beans to make a sweet treat and wow, I’m impressed! This lectin-light, gluten-free, sugar-free, vegan brownie is delicious.

Chestnut Pie with Root Vegetables

I’ve been away from our Dallas home, traveling in Europe, for more than three weeks, and I’m still away while I’m writing this. One of the highlights of this trip were chestnuts. First freshly boiled chestnuts in Romania, then discovering chestnut flour in Denmark. So I’ve been making this lectin free pie with seasonal root vegetables and a mix of chestnut and tigernut flour and I loved it so much I couldn’t wait to share it.

Parsnip Apple Cake with Rosemary and Olive Oil

lectin free recipes

Fall is here and so my desire to eat more grounding, earthy foods. And even though Dallas weather doesn’t show many signs of fall yet, days are shorter and more inviting to baking. And so my three lonely parsnips I had in the fridge and the small organic fuji apples I bought few days ago found their way to my heart (stomach) through this super delicious and warming parsnip cake.

How to Make my Favorite Nut Butter, Pecan Butter

I’ve been sharing my love for pecans and pecan butter for quite some time, but I took it for granted and never shared the recipe in a dedicated post on this website. This weekend I went to Dallas Farmers Market, and bought fresh, Texas pecans from a farmer, and he had no idea pecan butter is a thing! I just can’t believe that people don’t know about pecan butter, when is in fact the most delicious nut butter out there.
