All year long, we throw our hearts into keeping you excited and inspired about living and eating gluten-free, so we’re delighted some of our yummiest recipes made it all the way to our list of the Top 19 Posts of 2019. Here are seven you loved enough to count among our mouthwatering best:

  1. Fluffernutter Sandwich
    This sweet retro treat is all nostalgia, served on our softest, puffiest gluten-free bread in all its sweet-tooth-satisfying glory. Our fans and readers loved this classic, gooey recipe so much, it’s the recipe they spent the most time with of all the recipes we created in 2019.
  2. Strawberry Rhubarb French Toast
    Stuffed with easy, made-from-scratch strawberry rhubarb compote that’s sure to impress anyone you serve it to, this french toast uses our new Sprouted Honey Oat loaf.

  4. Pickled Avocado Toast
    Whether it’s popular simply because it’s avocado toast, or you loved it because the idea of pickled avocados was just so weird your curiosity couldn’t resist the urge to investigate, our Pickled Avocado Toast recipe earned more than a few clicks. Our favourite feedback? “What genius is this?!!?‼‼”
  5. Banana Nut French Toast Casserole
    Created for Little Northern Bakehouse by Yummy Mummy Kitchen blogger Marina Delio, this Banana Nut French Toast Casserole is a time-saver fit to feed a crowd. While there are plenty of reasons you loved this recipe enough to put it in our top 7 of 2019, we’re pretty the blend-pour-bake simplicity is second only to its soft on the inside, crunchy on the outside deliciousness.
  6. Turmeric Samosa Burger
    If you haven’t been gluten-free your entire life, samosas can be high on your list of foods you miss. Our Turmeric Samosa Burger recipe captures everything there is to love about samosas, and serves it up on gluten-free buns to send you on a culinary adventure our fans found appetizing.
  7. Baked Mac & Cheese
    The newest recipe to make our top recipes of 2019 list, our Baked Mac & Cheese was a hit with our readers from the moment we hit send. Maybe it’s the comfort food craving it satisfies. Maybe it’s the crunchy topping. Or maybe it’s the super-secret ingredient your kids will never suspect in all its creamy veggie stealth. Whatever the reason, we think our gluten-free take on Baked Mac & Cheese will have staying power long after 2019 is over.
