These grain-free snickerdoodle scones are perfect for breakfast or for an afternoon snack with a cup tea or coffee. While your scones are baking be prepared for some wonderful cinnamon aroma wafting through your kitchen. Both of my girls commented on how much they smelled like the cinnamon toast waffles that we used to buy before we went gluten-free and how wonderful the kitchen smelled.

Try my Dairy-Free Vanilla Icing to top these scones.  If you can handle dairy, there is a “glosting” (a cross between glaze and frosting) recipe in Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook on page 285.

Gluten-Free Biscuits - Dairy-Free

 

Gluten-free biscuits that are light and fluffy?

Yes, they are! Both of my daughters were so excited when they first taste tested these for me, because most of the biscuits that I’ve tried to make over the years have been more like a hockey pucks, but not these! These biscuits are light and fluffy, just like a good biscuit should be.

The trick is to use egg whites and to beat them to a nice froth before mixing with the flour.

I’ve made them with coconut oil that was melted and coconut oil  just softened and they worked great both ways. I found these were easier to make using the melted coconut oil, since all you have to do is stir.

Crustless Spinach Quiche

Crustless Spinach Quiche Gluten & Dairy Free - MamaShire.com
Crustless Spinach Quiche Gluten & Dairy Free

The classic quiche made a whole new way! It’s based on a favorite recipe that we had that needed to be upgraded to be  gluten and dairy free. Easy way to get rid of the gluten is to loose the crust. Simple and easy to do. You won’t miss having a crust, but if you do you can add a gluten-free crust, but that means extra work. Next is to make it dairy free. I used coconut milk in the quiche and I topped one with a dairy-free homemade cheese and the other with a sheep cheese. They both turned out delicious.

The quiche on the left was made with the homemade dairy-free called Hello Cheese from the Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook. The quiche on the right was made with Pecorino Romano, a sheep cheese. Manchego sheep cheese would work well here, too.

The recipe makes enough for two quiches. I’ll make this for supper and then have the extra one to serve for breakfast or leftovers. Depending on the size of your family, you may not have any leftovers. They also freeze well.

Crustless Spinach Quiche Gluten & Dairy Free - MamaShire.com

Tips for making this quiche:

  • If you can have sheep or goat cheese, you could use either on the top of the quiche. I usually use Pecorino Romano or Manchego sheep cheese.
  • To be completely dairy free you can use a vegan cheese recipe. I used the recipe in the new Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook for the “Hello Cheese”. It’s quick and simple to make. There are a few special ingredients that I had to purchase to make the “Hello Cheese”, but they will last a long time and you will be able to a lot of “cheese” from them. Some of those special ingredients are agar powder, collagen, nutritional yeast, and toasted sesame oil.
  • If you don’t have the THM cookbook here are two recipes that I found online for vegan cheese that you could try. I have not made them, but they look easy to make. 15 minute Vegan Cheese and Homemade Vegan Cheese. If you are following Trim Healthy Mama these two recipes would have to be tweaked a little to make sure you were using on plan ingredients.
  • You can leave off the cheese completely and it will still be yummy.

If you are following Trim Healthy Mama this would be an S.
