Gluten-free Dairy-free Biscuit & Gravy Recipe

Gluten-free Dairy-free Biscuits and Gravy | RachaelRoehmholdt.comI’ve always been a big fan of breakfast. When I was younger, my mom always made special breakfasts every Sunday morning before the whole family headed off to church.

It was never anything too fancy – waffles, pancakes, or eggs, toast and bacon. But it left a lasting impression that breakfast could and should be simple during the weekdays and a little more interesting once the weekend came around.

All through my early adulthood, I would still hold this tradition in place – making waffles, frittatas, or pancakes on the weekend (admittedly, I never seemed to completely master the non-burnt pancake-making skill). I started to discover just how much I loved creating a homemade breakfast of my own – for myself and now – my husband too.

One of the few recipes I mastered – before going gluten-free and dairy-free (and for now egg-free), was biscuits and gravy. It wasn’t like I made them from scratch or anything – but they were a decadent treat that I looked forward to a few times a year.

I’d pop open a can of biscuits (you know the ones), toss them in the oven and get to work on my sausage gravy. I have to tell you that once I learned how to make gravy in my early 20’s, almost every recipe I made was slathered in it.

I said “sayonara” to gravy when I left gluten and dairy in the dust a few years ago. I never tried to recreate it – because well, gravy is mostly delicious because of the flour and the milk. And biscuits just didn’t seem like biscuits if they weren’t made with all-purpose flour. Or so I thought. [Read more…]

The Best Pumpkin Muffins For Food Intolerant Folk

Gluten-free Dairy-free Pumpkin Muffins | RachaelRoehmholdt.comWant to know one of the places I hate to go the most?

The bakery aisles at the grocery store…

Or Costco, with the wafting deliciously sweet smells and gigantic boxes of treats…

Or any coffee shop that serve beautiful little breakfast bites…


Because 99.9% of what is offered at those places is completely off limits when you don’t eat gluten or dairy.

I’ll be honest. I love breakfast treats. I eat a healthy diet with tons of whole foods and organic (just about) everything – but I would be lying if I said I didn’t LOVE muffins, scones, or bagels.

Last week, I got to thinking about how wonderful it would be to just pop down to the bakery and buy a few things. I was daydreaming about it actually. Daydreaming to the point of popping open Yelp and finding that there actually IS a vegan and gluten-free bakery in my area (something I had NO idea about).

But then, before I even got my jacket and shoes on… I got to thinking, “I really don’t want to spend $3 on a muffin. In what world is ONE $3 muffin a good deal just because I can’t have gluten and dairy? I’m sure I could make them at home for much cheaper – and have a whole batch for the week ahead instead of just one.”

In the past few weeks, I’ve just started venturing into the world of making my own breakfast treats at home. I know that it’s more work, but it’s also pretty rewarding.

I can make what I want. I know what’s in them. I can have as much or as little as I want with the same amount of effort. And I don’t have to worry about hidden ingredients that aren’t shared on a label or at a bakery.

So far in my baking adventures, I’ve made gluten-free dairy-free waffles, biscuits, and scones so far. All of which – I’m proud to say – I’ve had great success!

Now I’m trying pumpkin muffins. My first try has turned out to be delicious! These muffins are moist, fluffy, and don’t leave you wishing for a different flavor or texture like so many other gluten-free muffins do. [Read more…]
