What do you think a Gluten Free Ginger Chocolate Crumb Cake might taste like? Today you’re going to find out!

During the past two weeks, I have been asked,

Can you recommend a great gluten-free cookbook?


Where do you get your recipes?

The answer to the former: No. I have several, but none I can truly recommend because they are either too complicated (think 20+ ingredients) or they use gluten-free ingredients I’m not a fan of advocating.

And to the latter: I make them up. Many times I am inspired by something I see or am motivated by an intense craving of my own. I figure out what I want and then how to concoct that food, but with all the appropriate substitutions.

The day I made the gluten-free breakfast loaf sort of looked like this….I was really craving chocolate. I had leftover pumpkin. I also wanted something “chocolate-cakey,” but with very low sugar. Oh, and I wanted to tie it altogether with a gut-friendly element.

Not high maintenance at all, right?!

The above scenario is one that happens weekly.

I didn’t know what I’d call it at the time, but piece-by-piece, the ingredients came together and myGluten Free Ginger Chocolate Crumb Cake came alive.

The “hub” of your ingredients. Do you know which one of these is the most “gut friendly?” Correct. The ginger. Here are some more of its benefits.

Ginger is also on the fall foods list.
