5 More Recipe Resources for GAPS

Grain-Free Salted Caramel Bars

A couple of weeks ago I wrote a post outlining some of my favorite GAPS bloggers and their recipe lists, called 5 Recipe Resources for GAPS.  Then I chose a few of my favorite recipes from their lists I have already tried, and some that I want to try in the future.  Well, of course five on a list is not enough!  Here are five more blogs that I love to peruse and find GAPS and grain-free recipes, as well as gain inspiration for new recipes of my own.

Remember that I am also currently hosting the GAPS Challenge, and we just hit the halfway mark and started Week Three this Sunday.  Time flies!  You can still join the GAPS Challenge here, and you can grab a copy of the ebook here.

To go along with my recipe collection below, today I am featuring a specific set of pictures and links from previous posts.  I think I have created a nice collection of GAPS-legal desserts so far.  I have always loved baking, and I think it is starting to show in the recipes that I really get passionate about figuring out and creating!  I hope that you enjoy the beautiful photos of my creations so far, and you look forward to more in the future.

Honey-Sweetened GAPS Peanut Butter Cups

  1. Mommypotamus Recipe List (most are GAPS recipes):  Heather is one of my favorite bloggers, because her personality and humor come out so clearly in her writing.  She cracks me up every time!  I am constantly chuckling to myself as I read her newest recipe or post on parenting.  Heather has also written an ebook called Nourishing Baby.  She really knows her stuff!
    As for recipes, I love this Homestyle Stuffing that I made for last Thanksgiving.  It’s really good!  You can add chopped giblets to it too, shhh!  I also want to be brave and make these Pickled Peppers, maybe to eat with scrambled eggs in a breakfast burrito?  And finally, I need to get more liver into my life.  This Ultimate Beef & Liver Chili looks like it will get the job done.  Thank you, Heather!

    Honey-Sweetened Chocolate (and GAPS Chocolate Chips!)

  2. Straight Into Bed Cakefree And Dried: a blog based out of England, with charming prose and delectable recipes to tempt you, written by mom and homeopath Naomi Devlin.  This was where I got my first introduction to cocoa butter and it’s GAPS-legal status.  (Which I think we can all agree was a good thing, ahem, GAPS chocolate chips!  You can buy cocoa butter here.)
    It was this Cocoa Butter Cupcake recipe that had me chomping at the bit to order cocoa butter for the first time last year.  And I also want to try this Hazelbutter Cookie with Cocoa Butter Truffle filling.  Remember that you can find cocoa butter on my resource page and make your own cocoa butter creations from this nourishing fat.  And in keeping with the indulgent feel of this blog, I would also like to try Naomi’s take on a Rose Martini and Manzanilla Martini.  Very posh!

    Honey-Sweetened White Chocolate (and GAPS White Chocolate Chips!)

  3. Kat’s Food Blog:  SCD Kat is the author of this blog, and she has a lot of great posts to choose from!  SCD stands for “Specific Carbohydrate Diet”, and is very similar to the GAPS diet.
    As far as recipes go, I’d love to try this Chopped Egg Salad, yum!  And a couple others that jump out: Fermented Salsa, these Easy Scallops, and pretty much all of these ideas for incorporating liver (and heart!) into your grain-free diet.

    Yellow Coconut Cake with Cocoa Buttercream

  4. The Healthy Home Economists’s Grain-free Recipes:  Sarah is always exciting to read, because she is almost always talking about something controversial.  And I have to admit that that is pretty fun for me!  But she also turns out some excellent grain-free recipes that are GAPS legal!
    I’m intrigued by this Thai Custard Pudding, and I have been meaning to try these Grain Free Enchiladas and Grain-Free Pumpkin Cookies for a while now.  Time for me to get cracking!  (Also, I can’t help but add these Cinnamon Sugar Sprouted Crackers for the near future when I add grains back in. Yum!)

    Chocolate Peppermint and Coconut Citrus Fudges

  5. The Nourishing Gourmet’s Recipes : Kimi Harris writes this blog, and she was the very first real food blog I ever found!  Thank you Kimi!  You’ll have to look through her recipe index for GAPS-compliant ones, but they’re worth it.  I have found a lot of great recipes there over the years, so rest assured that many of them have been tried and true by yours truly.
    These Herbed Baked Eggs look awesome, and is especially helpful for people on GAPS who eat a lot of eggs!  I also love this Braised 7 Hour Leg of Lamb, though you’ll need to sub the potatoes for something else, perhaps turnips or squash.  I’ve also tried these Pan Fried Apples before which are simple and naturally sweet, as well as these over-the-top Lemon Curd Bars.
    I cannot help but point out the usefulness of Kimi’s recipe list when it comes to transitioning back to grains or going gluten-free (or into real food for the first time, for that matter).  She uses a lot of quinoa and other alternative grains like buckwheat and millet, which can be really helpful for those who have problems with gluten and traditional wheat.  The ones that jump out to me: Italian Rice Salad, Hearty Quinoa Cookies, and Zucchini Millet Muffins.

    Shortbread Wedges & Peppermint Hot Cocoa

  1. Wow, found this right after dinner and it made me hungry all over again! Those photos are AMAZING! I’ve been wanting to try your salted caramel shortbread ever since you shared it at Nourished Kitchen, but now I’m conflicted because those peanut butter cups look oh so yummy! Thanks for the mention, Kendahl!

  2. What a fantastic list of recipes and resources. I too started to salivate when I saw that salted caramel shortbread, and the peanut butter cups do look very toothsome indeed! Thanks so much for the mention and for drawing together SCD and GAPSters! x x x

  3. Oh, wow, thanks for all the good links. I”m going to bookmark this. I just started Phase 5 of the Intro Diet to GAPS…but once I’m on the full GAPS diet, I’m going to want all the recipes I can get my hands on..Oh, and those grain-free salted caramel bars are just yummy looking. Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather 🙂

  4. Thanks, these look great! What a wonderful resource.
