My Favorite Meal Planning Apps

meal planning apps

Do you use meal planning apps? If not you are really missing out. Meal planning apps are hands down my favorite way to plan meals and to find new recipes. I find they are also a great way to save money on food and to avoid eating out when you are tempting to do so because you don’t know what to cook for dinner.

Watch this video below to learn about my favorite meal planning apps and how to use them.

Chocolate Chip Flax Gluten Free Muffins

gluten free muffins

Have you ever made chocolate chip flax gluten free muffins? If not you are in for a delicious treat. These are so yummy. I copied the recipe based on the ingredients from the flax 4 life muffins from Flax 4 Life. Since I don’t have the exact recipe I wrote down the ingredients list from the package and then tried to figure out how much of each ingredient to use. I also used cane sugar instead of cane juice and eggs instead of frozen egg whites. I’ve only made these gluten free muffins once. I think the next time I will try melting the chocolate chips before I stir them in. That is really the only thing I would change.

Ingredients
  1. 2 cups ground flax seeds or flax meal
  2. 1/2 cup gluten free oats
  3. 1 tbsp of baking powder
  4. 1 tsp. cinnamon
  5. 1 tsp. sea salt
  6. 1/4 cup cane sugar
  7. 2 eggs
  8. 1/2 cup water
  9. 1 tbsp. oil
  10. 1 tsp. vanilla
  11. 1/2 cup chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Mix dry ingredients in 1 bowl and wet in another bowl. Combine the two bowls and stir throughly. You can also try melting the chocolate chips first before stirring them in. Then spray a muffin pan and put in equal amounts of the batter. This recipe made 8 regular size muffins. You could also use a loaf pan and make some bread instead of the muffins.
Notes
  1. You can use a little more cane sugar if you want them sweeter or a little less for less sweetness. Anywhere between 1/5 a cup and 1/3 a cup. Flax 4 life also sells carrot and blueberry versions so you would probably add in 1/2 cup of graded carrots and blueberries. You could also try strawberries or apples just to name a few variations.

Gluten Free Dairy Free Vegetable Soup

gluten free dairy free vegetable soup

Do you struggle to cook gluten free dairy free vegetable soup? While it’s true that many recipes for soups call for things like cream of chicken soup, or tomato soup that have wheat flour in them and therefore aren’t gluten free, it really isn’t too difficult to cook a gluten free dairy free vegetable soup. Most of the time when I’m cooking gluten free and dairy free soups and or other recipes I follow an exact recipe. However, once in a while I will experiment and see what I come up with. I made with my mom for dinner this really yummy gluten free dairy free vegetable soup last week and it turned out too yummy to not post.
