Strawberry Muffins Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Sugar-free, THM-S

I think one of my favorite things to bake has to be muffins. Muffins are so easy to make and just plain fun to eat. And I love their look and texture. They great for breakfast or a quick snack. These would look really pretty with a special brunch as well.

Strawberry Muffins Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Sugar-free, THM-S

These muffins have one cup of chopped strawberries and it makes for a very moist muffin if you prefer a drier muffin you can lower the amount of strawberries to 3/4 cup.

To sweeten these muffins you can use the Trim Healthy Mama Super Sweet Blend or my homemade version of that which is a mixture of 1 cup of Now Foods non-GMO Erythritol and 1 teaspoon of Now Foods Better Stevia. Our family likes this brand of stevia the best of all the ones that we have tried. I usually buy the 1 lb. container and it lasts for several months.

Air-Fried Gluten Free Onion Rings

Air-Fried Gluten Free Onion Rings so yummy and easy to make. Enjoy these crunchy onion rings that are low fat and low carb. THM-FP

Air Fried Gluten Free Onion Rings

(This post contains affiliate links. Any purchases you make through my links will provide me with a small commission at no extra charge to you. Thank you for your support!  See my disclosure policy here.)

We recently went to Outback Steakhouse to celebrate my sister’s college graduation and my brother-in-law ordered a plate of bloomin’ onions. Oh, they looked so good, but they are not on their gluten-free menu so I tried not to look at them too much. Plus, I had recently bought an air fryer and knew that I could enjoy some home-made onions that were not only gluten free but also low in fat and carbs and would be on plan with Trim Healthy Mama.

Air Fried Gluten Free Onion Rings

Using an air fryer is so easy and I have decided it is a must have item in my kitchen. It allows me to have crispy fried treats like these onion rings without using all the oil that you normally would need to use to get them crispy like this.

Air Fried Gluten Free Onion Rings

There are so many air fryers to pick from on Amazon so I decided to go with the top rated one that was within my budget. This one is an Avalon Bay Air Fryer. It is super easy to use and the clean up is a breeze. It doesn’t get hot to the touch either. There is a vent on the back side that blows out hot air, but it isn’t enough to heat your kitchen up like an oven does.

Air Fryer 101

You need to use an oil sprayer. I originally used my Spectrum coconut oil spray, but I wanted to be able to use avocado or olive oil for the flavor so I ordered a set of these Evo Oil Sprayers. I had a refillable oil mister several years ago, but I wasn’t impressed with how it worked, but these sprayers work great.

Air Fried Gluten Free Onion Rings

I’ve been making several recipes in my air fryer and I’ll be sharing them all soon. One fun thing we did with the air fryer was to take it with us when we went to the Gospel Coalition Conference this spring. It was easy to travel with and we were able to heat up our breakfast and supper in the hotel room super quick and easy. Did I mention it’s easy to clean? It is.

Trim Healthy Mamas these delicious, crunchy onion rings are an FP.

Air Fried Gluten Free Onion Rings

Air Fryer Gluten Free Onion Rings

Delicious and easy to make onion rings.

  • Author:
  • Category: Sides

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond or cashew milk
  • 1 1/4 cup of Trim Healthy Mama Baking Blend
  • 1/2 Himalayan salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika (optional)
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1 large sweet onion

Instructions

  1. Mix eggs and milk together in a shallow bowl that is easy to dip your rings into. Mix flour blend, salt, paprika, cayenne together in a shallow bowl that is easy to dip your rings into. Slice onion in 1/4 to 1/2 inch rings and separate rings.
  2. Preheat air fryer on 350° for a minute or two.
  3. Dip onion slices in egg mixture and then dredge through flour mixture. Place onion slices in air fryer basket in a single layer, can be slightly overlapped. Lightly spray with oil spray. Fry in air fryer for 5-8 minutes, turn onion slices over, lightly spray and fry for another 5-8. Frying time will depend on the thickness of the onions and how many rings are in the fryer at one time.
  4. It may take 3-4 batches to fry all the onion rings.
  5. You can easily check on the onion rings during the frying to check for doneness.

Notes

If you need a grain-free baking blend you can use equal parts of blanched almond flour, golden flax meal, and coconut flour. It may tip the scale a bit on the fat amount so using this baking blend may put these onion rings in an S category.

See my recipe for Air-Fried Asparagus for more ideas using an air-fryer.

Frosted Raspberry Lemonade

Frosted Raspberry Lemonade is perfect for a light and refreshing treat. It’s THM-FP, Gluten-free, Dairy-free, and Sugar-free!

Frosted Raspberry Lemonade - Delicious and refreshing! Dairy-free, sugar-free, low-carb, gluten-free! THM-FP

(This post contains affiliate links. Any purchases you make through my links will provide me with a small commission at no extra charge to you. Thank you for your support!  See my disclosure policy here.)

I started making frosty drinks when I first started following Trim Healthy Mama a few years ago. Never to leave a recipe alone, I started dabbling around with different flavor combinations and I was hooked. These drinks are so refreshing and so good for you.

Frosted Raspberry Lemonade - Delicious and refreshing! Dairy-free, sugar-free, low-carb, gluten-free! THM-FP

I’ve been creating several different flavors and whichever one I’m drinking is my favorite. I’ve included a list at the bottom of the post with some of my other drinks.

Frosted Raspberry Lemonade - Delicious and refreshing! Dairy-free, sugar-free, low-carb, gluten-free! THM-FP

A few years ago some dear friends gave us some of their extra red raspberry bushes. At the time I wasn’t thrilled about the idea because I had grown up enjoying my grandmother’s black raspberry pie that she made from the wild black raspberry bushes that were in our woods. I thought they were the only “good” raspberry. While I still think black raspberries are amazing, I have come to appreciate these red beauties more and more. They’re incredibly low in carbs like most all berries, and they’re so healthy for you.

Frosted Raspberry Lemonade - Delicious and refreshing! Dairy-free, sugar-free, low-carb, gluten-free! THM-FP

This recipe makes one-quart serving, but if it’s too big you can share half of it with a loved one. If you decide to divide the recipe and share it, I suggest you double the amount of collagen so that there is a good serving of collagen in both drinks.

For you Trim Healthy Mamas, this Frosted Raspberry Lemonade is an FP and is best enjoyed within the first 30-45 minutes of making.

Two Things to be Intentional about in January

Instead of thinking about New Year’s resolutions, I’m going to be focusing on just a couple of things to work on this month!

So, hello January!

Here are two things that I am going to be very intentional about this month to help get myself back on track and hopefully, the benefits will spill over into the rest of the year!

  • Work through Crystal Paine’s new “15 Days to a Healthier You Program” that starts on January 9th. This very affordable membership is open through January 3 (midnight CST).  This program covers several different areas that I am needing to work on! It comes with a downloadable study guide and a private Facebook group where Crystal will share 15-minute live videos each evening going over each days topic. The video will start on January 9th. If you miss a live video it will be saved for easy viewing later. This program is available for only $15.

  • Menu Planning! This is something that I struggle with and I’ve decided that I’m tired of it. Tired of the struggle, so there is only one thing to do and that is change! Jennifer at Working at Homeschool sent me a copy of her ebook “365: One year of Healthy Meal Plans for Busy Families” and it looks amazing. It’s also gluten-free so that’s a win-win in my book! She also offers free monthly menu plans on her blog as well.

Blogger Test Kitchen Blog Hop Giveaway – Cuisinart Food Processor

Several bloggers from the THM Blogger Test Kitchen have come together to celebrate the holidays with a blog hop giveaway! There are fabulous prizes on each of our blogs, so hop over to each one and enter to win. All of these ladies have wonderful Trim Healthy Mama friendly recipes so be sure to check them out!

*This post contains affiliate links. See my disclosure policy here.*

Blogger Test Kitchen Giveaway

1. Nana’s Little Kitchen // 2. Wonderfully Made and Dearly Loved // 3. Briana Thomas // 4. Mrs. Criddle’s Kitchen // 5. A Home With Purpose // 6. Joyful Jane // 7. MamaShire

The THM Blogger Test Kitchen is a Facebook group where we share recipes that are THM friendly. We have several albums in the group that has the different categories of recipes so it makes it easy to find what type of recipe you’re looking for, like dinner recipes that are an S, E, or FP, or perhaps you’re wanting a drink or snack, just search the albums and see all the recipes listed by type.

Now onto my giveaway!

I’m giving away a Cuisinart 11-cup Food Processor!

Cuisinart Food Processor

I’ve had my Cuisinart Food Processor for 6 years now and I just love it. It makes food prep so quick and easy. I think it’s one of my favorite and most important tools in my kitchen. I’ve had other brands of food processors before that just didn’t hold up well, so when I purchased my Cuisinart I was hoping it would work well AND last. I’ve not been disappointed in it at all.

It can shred, slice, chop, or mix just about what ever type of food you’re working with. I can use it to shred a head of cabbage in just a couple of minutes to make sauerkraut or coleslaw, it can quickly shred zucchini or yellow squash so I can make my Chocolate Peanut Butter Muffins or Yellow Squash Snack Cake. I can shred carrots, chop pecans, and then use it to mix the batter for my favorite Carrot Cake. It helps make all the prep work easy for making Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup. Can you tell this gets a lot of use in my kitchen?

*Update* – There was a recent recall on older Cuisinart Food Processor chopping blades. This model is is not on the recall list. I actually do have one of the older chopping blades that has been recalled. I’ve never had any trouble with it, but I will be returning it to get the newer one.

**Giveaway is closed**

Congratulations goes to Kayle!

Frosted Mocha

Frosted Mocha - Dairy-free, Sugar-free, Low-Carb, THM-FP

This Frosted Mocha is a delicious and satisfying drink. Perfect for a snack between meals or for a big dessert.

Tips for making Frosted Mocha:

  • Keep an eye on the carbs in your cocoa powder, some of them contain more carbs than others. I use raw cacao powder when I can for an added healthy benefit, but it isn’t necessary to enjoy this delightful drink.
  • The added collagen in this drink gives you a good amount of protein to help make this a more satisfying snack. THM Integral Collagen or Custom Collagen works well in this recipe. It’s also great for your skin and joints.
  • The glucomannan helps give this drink a creamy texture. Either THM Glucomannan or Now Glucomannan would work well.
  • This drink is best enjoyed within a half-hour of making.
  • I do use a Vitamix blender and so I have a tamper that I use to push down the ice while it’s blending. If you are using a different type of blender you may need to stop the blender occasionally and use a large spoon or rubber spatula to push down the ice.

Trim Healthy Mamas this drink is an FP.

Make Over Your Mornings & Evenings

I heard a speaker at a church conference once that was giving a talk on being productive. I thought that’s what I need, I need all the help I can get! It turned out to be one of my favorite talks and it was so very helpful. It was given by a retired gentleman who had been in charge of a hospital. He explained how to start distinguishing between what was important and what was urgent.

When we start taking care of the important items in our lives those urgent things, things that make us feel rushed and overwhelmed start to diminish.

Taking time each morning and evening determining what is most important and then working on those will help us to have better days, days that are less “crazy”. It takes work and determination to implement these ideas, but the results will be a schedule that you are controlling, instead of the rush of the urgent controlling you everyday.

There will still be things that pop up that will be urgent, that’s part of life, but having the important things taken care of will make those “urgent surprises” easier to manage.

I’ve gone through these two courses by Crystal Paine – Make Over Your Mornings and Make Over Your Evenings and they have helped me work through taking care of the important things in life and how to balance “urgent surprises”. Crystal is wonderful in explaining the concepts in a simple to understand way and in each segment gives practical ways to put the lessons into practice.

Good news about these courses are that they are both on special now through Monday, August 15th!

Buy either Make Over Your Mornings or Make Over Your Evenings for $10 (normally $17)!  And an added bonus, if you buy one title for $10, you can get the other title for $7!  You can get both for the price of one!

Dairy-Free Vanilla Icing

Dairy-Free Vanilla Icing - Gluten-free, Sugar-free, Low-carb, THM-S

This light. tasty vanilla icing is in between a glaze and frosting. It can be put in a baggie and piped onto your baked goodies. Clip a tiny corner of the baggie and squeeze out the icing. You can go slowly and controlled or go fast and let it get all squiggly like I did on the scone above.

I put in just a bit of butter flavoring in this recipe, if you don’t have any it will still work, but it does add a light, buttery flavor that I think is worth adding in.

Try this icing with my Grain-Free Snickerdoodle Scones.
