Banana Foster Enchiladas. (Gluten/Grain/Dairy Free)

In this unique spin on traditional bananas foster I swap out brown sugar for organic coconut palm sugar and place it on a lightly fried grain free tortilla. Easy Peasy (and oh so delicious). My grain free tortillas taste amazing in this recipe, however if they don't work for you- you might try my Paleo flax tortillas (which would make this recipe become paleo!) . If grain isn't a restriction for you then basic gluten free corn or rice tortillas will work as well.

Quinoa flour is an underused gem in the world of gluten free baking. But I’m sure that’s not a statement you hear often.. Why? Well.. lets just be honest. It smells like grass! (and can taste like bitter stinky weird grass too). For a very long time I avoided it just due to its sheer… Read More ›
