I Need Some More Sugar-Free, Gluten-Free Recipes. Any Ideas?
“PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE some tried and tested sugar-free/gluten-free recipes would be sooooooo appreciated!”
Jesse: I’m actually staying with someone ~ attempting ~ a sugar-free diet right now, and we have been eating a lot of chicken. Some of it has been pretty sad and bland, but I am hoping to make this coconut-milk braised chicken this week! It’s a pretty easy recipe that uses some pantry staples — and it’s almost completely hands-off. Just make sure the coconut milk you use is unsweetened and the dish will be both gluten-free and sugar-free!
Arie: Have you been able to do any desserts, Jesse? What does that look like?
Jesse: Not yet, but I would go for something like fresh fruit with a dollop of unsweetened yogurt. Simple, yet still really lush.
Arie: Lauren, as our resident gluten-free editor, do you have any favorite gluten-free recipes from the site right now that are low in sugar, too?
Meghan: These brownies are actually a favorite in our house; they are so chocolatey and only use 1/2 cup honey (you could use less too). I also love Kelli’s chickpea blondies; they call for brown sugar, but you can use coconut sugar for a lower-sugar alternative. These oat squares could be breakfast or dessert. And these oatmeal cups are choose-your-own-adventure as far as sweetener and are also gluten-free.
Arie: Great ideas, guys! Thanks!
