Yes, after the last few posts informing you about the ill effects of sugar, I present you with my favorite quickie dessert recipe! LOL! So, allow me to reiterate what I believe I’ve made clear – Sugar, of any and all kinds, should be used in moderation!!!
This is a “healthier” dessert recipe. It is gluten-free, dairy-free and sugar-free! It is, however, still a dessert. You all have been SO amazing at spreading the word about this blog via our Facebook page, etc, I couldn’t help but want to spoil you all!
In my ideal world the things that taste best to me would be the best for me. That’s a nice thought, isn’t it? Unfortunately, that’s where that one ends. An optimal choice for me would be to enjoy naturally sweet fruits as my dessert. Realistically, no matter how much I believe in limiting, and do truly limit, my sugar intake, sometimes I want a dessert that, in my ideal world, would be the healthiest thing in the entire world for me!! In other words, some days I want something that tastes delicious, something comparable to all those desserts loaded with added sugar that I absolutely cannot and will not eat.
For those days where I don’t have the energy to keep my mouth from gaping open, when I choose to drag my feet rather than lift them to avoid another pair of socks that my toes end up protruding rudely from, for those days that lead my daughter to wander into the kitchen and, after staring, remark, “You really old,” before leaving to continue her play, this recipe is what brings a smile to my face. It dirties a very bearable 1 dish and a few utensils. It takes around 5 minutes including cooling time. Without further ado, allow me to introduce you to my bowl of hope on hard days. One of my very favorite gluten-free dairy-free sugar-free dessert recipes…
1 Tbsp Earth’s Balance Soy-Free Dairy-Free GMO-Free Butter
1 Tbsp Earth’s Balance Natural Peanut Butter
1 Tbsp Organic Pure Maple Syrup
1 Tbsp Organic Honey
3-4 drops Organic Vanilla Extract
A Pinch of Salt
1 Egg Yolk
1 Tbsp Brown Rice Flour
1 Tbsp Sorghum Flour
1 Tbsp Tapioca Flour (or Gluten-Free Flour Mix)
1. Melt/Soften butter and peanut butter. Mix well.
2. Add remaining ingredients EXCEPT flours. Mix well.
3. Add flours. Mix well.
4. Microwave for 45 seconds
( Step #4 is vital as it not only bakes your cake but it also makes certain that any small amount of nutrients previously available to you will be destroyed – - – This last part may or may not actually be true, but as someone who avoids microwaves most of the time, I thought I’d throw that in there for the sake of more corny humor. )
5. Let cool for a couple minutes if you can stand it. Otherwise, be sure to blow before you bite. Enjoy!!
Btw, this should give you an idea as to what size of bowl will work.
No need to get real specific with this one. Any ordinary microwave safe bowl should do.
