We love pizza and know that you all do as well. We are always trying new recipes out to try and find a great grain free pizza, and this is one that got the VFit Squad nod of approval. We've adapted this recipe from freecoconutrecipes.com, with some twists and tweaks . You can get creative with your own toppings and sauce. We highly recommend you make the BBQ sauce from our Rolodex if you can, since more store bought sauces are full of additives that we prefer to steer clear of. You can bottle and save any extra sauce in a jar and keep in the fridge. You can also always cook two crusts and freeze one for later use, trust us, you'll wish you had after you have your first bite!
This is an nontraditional scone recipe that calls for oats and cooked quinoa as the base. This combo works to make this a healthy breakfast scone packed with protein. We've included a super simple chia jam that pairs perfectly with these biscuits.
This recipe came from one of our favorite members who is very gluten sensitive. One afternoon, she was craving cookies and didn't have her normal go-to grain free flours around her pantry so she whipped up this batter which uses rolled oats and some coconut flour. These cookies are a tasty and nutritious treat and will please kids and adults alike. Just a warning, you probably want to double the batch!
The ULTIMATE food swap is happening with this blondie recipe. Instead of the traditional flour, butter, sugar combo to get these tasty treats made, this recipe uses chickpeas as its secret ingredient. Chickpeas are high in fiber, iron, and helps detoxify your body. Also, instead of refined sugar it is sweetened with pure maple syrup, and uses oats instead of flour. These melt in your mouth and go quick. Like real quick. You may want to go ahead and just double the recipe now. Seriously though, these are legit. Tiny bites of goodness! These are inspired by the Chocolate Covered Katie Blog.
Who says you can't have dessert for breakfast?

Jam packed with nutrients from oats, chickpeas, and naturally sweetened with dates, these breakfast cookies are high in protein and fiber, and even have a semi-secret ingredient of pumpkin in 'em. Just trust us, make these and be the hero of the day!
