Instructions
  1. To make Cookie Dough… Combine dry ingredients in a bowl. Stir to mix. Set aside.
  2. In a stand mixer, combine sugar, warm coconut oil, warm applesauce and vanilla. Mix on low until sugar is dissolved. 2-3 minutes.
  3. Slowly add in the dry ingredients and mix on low until the dough comes together and all of the ingredients are combined. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 15-30 minutes.
  4. Preheat oven to 350. Clear your work area and create space to roll out the dough. Roll dough to ¼” thickness and cut out 2” circles. Place circles on parchment lined cookie sheets. Cookies will not spread much so 1” apart is fine. Bake at 350 for 7-9 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack and make Cream Filling.
  5. To Make Vanilla Cream Filling… Using a whip attachment on your mixer, beat the palm shortening at high speed, until light and fluffy and doubled in size. About 3-5 minutes. Slowly add in the powdered sugar and rice milk, mix until incorporated. Add vanilla.
  6. On cooled cookies, spoon out 1 TBL of Cream Filling onto ½ of the cookie sides and cover with opposing cookie. Allow to cool in fridge to set.
  7. Enjoy!

Vegan & Gluten Free Fried Donuts (Old Fashioned)

November 13th, 2017 Posted by Recipes 0 thoughts on “Vegan & Gluten Free Fried Donuts (Old Fashioned)”

If you’ve missed fried donuts.. these will fix all that!  I experimented with almond flour in this recipe and it resulted in light lovely tasting donuts! Coat them in a simple vanilla glaze, chocolate glaze or cinnamon sugar.  If you want a nut-free version and don’t want to use almond flour, sorghum will work great! And coconut oil is fantastic for frying in, especially if you are staying away from soy or canola oil.

Crispy Gluten Free and Vegan Sugar Cookies

February 23rd, 2017 Posted by Uncategorized 0 thoughts on “Crispy Gluten Free and Vegan Sugar Cookies”

My grandma Lucy was the queen of sugar cookies. At Christmas she would make hundreds of thin crispy santas, bells and candy canes. I took for granted that each one was hand cut and ate them like crazy… but seriously what a job! hundreds! I dont know how she had the time. She had a job AND had 9 kids. Amazing. Her cookies were kinda like heaven.

And naturally, she used pure butter and glazed them with a sweet egg wash. The old fashioned way.

When we got our firsts requests for gluten free and vegan sugar cookies, my daughter was loving those soft cakey cookies from the grocery store. Yuck. But with that in mind, I created something similar at the bakery. We started out with a soft chewy sugar cookie. They were awesome, but I was missing my grandma’s thin crisps. So I tweaked the flour blend (gasp!) to take away the chewy and leave only crisp!

We LOVE them! They are not too sweet. You can easily just eat them as is, but we like to have fun and decorate them with our Vegan Royal Icing. THAT’s a cool recipe! Coming soon so stay tuned.

Cinnamon Roll Protein Waffles
As I usually warn my readers, any gluten-free flour blend can be substituted in this recipe, but I firmly believe they are not created equally. If you'd like to try our tried and true...the most ultimately tested Karma Baker Organic Gluten Free Flour, visit karmabaker.com/shop I like to make a mix with the dry ingredients, so it's handy and we just scoop out some flour to add the liquids to... easy peasy.

Buttermilk Donuts

January 9th, 2017 Posted by Uncategorized 0 thoughts on “Buttermilk Donuts”

We usually use our Famous Karma Baker GF Flour to make donuts, but I was looking for something a little different. A nice hearty flavor that oats provide nicely. These turned out better than I hoped. We now have them everyday at the Karma Baker bakery.

Be sure to use Certified gluten free oats, if you are celiac.  Also to make the buttermilk, it’s important to use a high protein milk. We use soy and get the best results. I’m afraid rice milk will not work well here. Nut milks are the next best choice.
