Grain-Free Fried Chicken, Quirky Cooking

Grain-Free Fried Chicken with Buttermilk Gravy

When our family had to go gluten free and dairy free due to food intolerances, I tweaked my mother's fried chicken recipe and managed to make a pretty good gf df version - but once we went onto the GAPS Protocol we missed out on fried chicken for a couple of years... Until I decided enough was enough, time to make a GAPS/Paleo version! So I developed this almond meal and coconut flour recipe, which we love. For those who can have buckwheat, try the buckwheat recipe too - it's a bit simpler and just as yummy!

Lemon & Currant Bars (grain free)

Lemon & Currant Bars (grain free)

If you're looking for a muesli bar or snack bar that is gluten free, grain free, refined sugar free, and not full of chunky nuts (because lots of kids don't like chunky nut bars!) - AND you'd love a recipe with a nut free version so it can go into school lunchboxes - look no further! Bake up a batch of these bars, wrap separately, and store in the freezer, ready to pop into lunchboxes or your handbag as you dash out the door.
