Crustless Gluten Free Pumpkin Pie

Crustless Gluten Free Pumpkin Pie

This crustless gluten free pumpkin pie is delicious. Why gluten free you may ask? Well, I have been asked by my doc in alternative therapy to cut back on my gluten and dairy intake so I have adjusted my diet accordingly. I am not completely gluten free, so I can have pumpkin pie with a crust too but I try to avoid gluten where i can and I want the blog to reflect that.

Fudgy Avocado Brownies

Fudgy Avocado Brownies

These fudgy avocado brownies are one of the most requested recipes in my household. By my son mostly. My daughter will eat anything so I could put anything in front of her and she will be fine. They are fudgy like normal brownies, chocolatey rich and soooo good. I’ll tell you a secret. I was never into brownies. I hated them. Until i started making them at home and realised that really these things are pretty adaptable! I love trying different variations. Needless to say, I love them a lot more now. 🙂 Here is another avocado brownie recipe that I love. It is not healthy. It is from a different time. It is definitely a cheat day recipe! I apologise for the photos here, this recipe was supposed to go up a long time ago and we weren’t great at the whole picture taking thing.

Author: 
Serves: 25 - 30
 
Ingredients
  • 350g dates pitted
  • 3 tbsp ghee
  • 2 tsp sugar (optional)
  • 10 crackers or digestive biscuits broken roughly into 1cm pieces.
Instructions
  1. In a small pan over a low heat, combine all the ingredients.
  2. Keep stirring the dates with a wooden spoon until you can feel that they have broken down enough to form a ball with the other ingredients.
  3. Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly (not too much because the mixture won’t stick together).
  4. Roll out and cut about 30 cm of cling film.
  5. Add the date mixture to the middle of it and roll together to form a cylindrical roll shape.
  6. Try to get this as tight as possible.
  7. Twist the ends together and put the roll into the fridge for 2- 3 hours.
  8. Remove from the fridge, remove cling film and cut into biscuits.
  9. These keep for 2 weeks in the fridge.
