Double Chocolate Sunbutter Cookies — Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Allergy Friendly!

chocolate-sunbutter-cookies

Welcome back to Sunday Scratchups, your source for weekly recipes from scratch around grocery store matchups, sales, and coupons. This week I picked up some clearance Sunbutter, and to go along with any sales you find too we have $1.00/1 and $3.00/2 Hopster coupons to combine with a $.75 back offer on BerryCart. ALDI has their baking supplies on sale for the holiday season, including cocoa powder and sugar, and we just saw a price drop on dairy free Enjoy Life chocolate chips on Amazon.

chocolate-sunbutter-cookies-on-rack

Jars of clearance Sunbutter clearly cry out to be made into cookies, but I was in the mood for something a little more, shall we say, chocolate-y than the basic three ingredient allergy friendly* Sunbutter cookies recipe. So I added a little bit of this, a little bit of that, and voila! Double Chocolate Sunbutter Cookies were born. Still super easy, though, for the holidays or any time of the year.

* Note — This recipe does contain egg, but you can easily replace with a flax egg or other egg substitute if you have an egg allergy in your family.

Double Chocolate Sunbutter Cookies

chocolate-sunbutter-cookies-ingredients

Ingredients

1 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup creamy Sunbutter
1 egg (or egg substitute)
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup dairy free chocolate chips

Directions

rolling-cookies

Mix sugar, cocoa powder, Sunbutter, egg, and vanilla until well blended into a stiff dough, then stir in chocolate chips. Roll into balls, then roll in granulated sugar and place on greased cookie sheet or silicone baking mat.

cookies-on-sheet

Press each cookie down and flatten slightly with the back of a fork, then bake for 14 minutes at 350 degrees, flipping tray around at 10 minutes. Let cool on cookie sheet for one minute, then remove to cooling rack to cool the rest of the way. Store in airtight container at room temperature. Makes 18 cookies.

Can’t get much easier than that!

OK, we went from three ingredients to six by making these chocolate — but still stayed gluten free and dairy free with no special flours, butter substitutes, or Xanthan gum involved. Good deal! And, good flavor; this turned out to be just the right balance of chocolate to Sunbutter. Dairy Free Wheat Free Junior High Guy gave these two thumbs up, and I recommend them warm out of the oven with coffee for an afternoon treat.

Heads Up

  • Melissa sent a heads up on the Walgreen’s bandaid deal, “I tried this deal earlier and the coupon beeped. They told me it was only for first aid products. Lol I asked them if Band Aids were a first aid product. They said it had to be gauze. I think it beeped because she scanned my jingle cash first. They lost a sale for over $30 because I said just forget it and left everything there.”
  • Karen comments on the leggings thread from yeserday, “I too purchased the leggings for my girls.  Very disappointed to find tights not leggings.  I am not certain that they will never wear them.  I had planned on one for my daughter for this weekend.  Guess I will be hitting the stores to find real leggings and not seamed tights.”
  • Connie has a comment on Groupon Goods, “I’m surprised it took so long to get your Groupon Goods order! I’ve placed 3 orders since Thanksgiving and all were received in about a week (some a little longer, some a little less).  That includes the one I placed under the $10 off clearance apparel coupon on 12/6, the clearance video I ordered arrived in 2 days and then the shapewear I ordered took until 12/12 to arrive.”

As a bonus they are giving out a free Lego ornament, while supplies last.”

  • On the Meijer deals — $15 Bath & Body Works gift cards, Krissy points out, “Bought these yesterday, they are three $15 each gift cards in the package. So $40 for $45 worth if gift cards.

  • Kay asks, “Does anyone have prepaid/no contract cell service they are happy with? Someone just gave me an iphone 4s so I want to use my own phone. I spent over an hour today with Straight Talk over my order from Tues morning with the ‘free overnight shipping’ that they charged me $14.95 for – when I still don’t have my order. Actually they have not even processed the order yet (36 hrs after they charged my account). Apparently ‘overnight’ is from whenever they process the order (which seems to be whenever they feel like it). They told me they will ‘probably’ process the order in 24-48 hours. And since you have to sign for the order, don’t leave your house for 2-3 days! Precisely why I went with no contract service – because now I can walk away. Looking for unlimited talk, text and data. Anyone?
  • Julie asks, “Another Lego question! (Got great help last time!!) Besides ordering individually from bricklink.com, anyone know where I can get sets or lots of bricks like these together? Also does anyone know what the “ear” bricks are called? Same question for the whiskers and the nose. Oh, and the eyes?

Target

  • Kelly sent a deal she found, “I know there are a lot of Gluten free shoppers out there . . . Saw this at Target in Wheaton today. Glutino gluten free cornbread stuffing on clearance for $2.34, down from $4.69. Seems like a good deal to me. It was on an end cap across from the refrigerated liquor. Also, the Stove Top stuffing rang up as $1.23 or something (even though it was marked as $2.19) and then Cartwheel’s 40% off brought it down to $.75 a box.”
  • From Jane: “I think there is a 40% Cartwheel on boots for the family today, too.”

Easy Craisin Pretzel Bark — Gluten Free, Dairy Free!

Posts on Mashup Mom may contain affiliate links. Please see disclosure and disclaimer here.

easy-craisin-pretzel-bark

Welcome back to Sunday Scratchups, your weekly recipe from scratch around grocery store matchups. This week, we have a lovely $1.00 Craisins insert coupon — and they were on sale last week at CVS for $1.50, this week at Dollar General for $1.50, and pretty much cheap all around. Fisher Naturals pecans were $2.99 at Ultra Foods earlier in the week after $1.00 insert coupon, and ALDI now carries gluten free pretzels at $2.49 every day. So I was looking at the Craisins and at the pecans and at the pretzels I bought this past week, and thinking there had to be SOME kind of delicious allergy friendly holiday treat there…

finished-pretzel-bark-6

… and let me warn you straight up now, Craisin Pretzel Bark is incredibly addictive, hitting just the right balance of sweet & salty, crunchy & chewy. Your most expensive ingredient here will be the dairy free chocolate chips. I used Enjoy Life that I’d picked up on sale, with coupons at Whole Foods a long time ago, and you can as of this writing pick up a six pack of the semi sweet Mega Chunks for $25.44 on Amazon, or mini chocolate chips for $25.14. If you’re not sensitive to cross-contamination, Trader Joe’s also sells chocolate chips for around $1.99 that don’t contain dairy ingredients, but are processed on shared equipment.

Easy Craisin Pretzel Bark — Gluten Free, Dairy Free

ingredients

Ingredients

1/3 cup gluten free, dairy free pretzel pieces
1/3 cup Craisins
1/3 cup pecan pieces
4-5 oz dairy free chocolate chips
Kosher salt

Directions

pretzel-craisin-bottom

Line an 8″ round pan with parchment paper and spread pretzel pieces and Craisins across the bottom.

pour-on-chocolate-add-pecans

Melt chocolate chips in microwave — I used the rest of an open bag of Enjoy Life semi sweet mega chunks here, about 4-5 oz. Pour melted chocolate evenly across pretzels and Craisins, then sprinkle pecan pieces across the top. (I used chopped pecans, but broke them up even smaller.) Sprinkle with a little Kosher salt.

harden-then-break-into-chunks

Let harden in fridge about 40 minutes, then break into chunks. If any is left over (ha! I kid!), store in tightly covered container at room temperature.

Soooo good

finished-pretzel-bark-3

Dangerously good. I mean, you have the sweet. You have the salty. You have the crunchy. You have the chewy. And, you have: The chocolate. Craisin Pretzel Bark hits every note, and ours was gone within a day. Luckily I’m now out of pretzels so can’t make any more… yet ALDI beckons…

finished-pretzel-bark

Craisin Pretzel Bark would be an easy addition to a holiday party buffet, or you could tie some little baggies of bark with ribbon for gift giving. Super easy to make, too, so get the kids in on it!

Gluten Free Dairy Free Blueberry Pancake Bites

Posts on Mashup Mom may contain affiliate links. Please see disclosure and disclaimer here.

gluten-free-dairy-free-blueberry-pancake-bites

Welcome back to Sunday Scratchups, your weekly recipe from scratch around grocery store matchups! A couple of weeks ago I scratched up a recipe for Gluten Free Dairy Free Pineapple Bacon Pancake Bites. Well, Mr. 7-who-hates-pineapple was not pleased (as Junior High Guy rubbed it in while enjoying the entire batch noisily and with great gusto over the next few days), so he insisted I make some blueberry ones for him. Voila — Gluten Free Dairy Free Blueberry Pancake Bites were born.

(If you’d rather just have some gluten free dairy free pancakes, see the Brown Rice Flour Pancakes recipe these are based on.)

blueberries-and-rice-flour

This recipe also takes advantage of the cheap Dole frozen blueberries we can pick up this week, although mine were actually on clearance at Jewel a while back. Can’t find those? Check ALDI for affordable frozen fruit. For the brown rice flour, use the perpetual $1.00/1 Bob’s Red Mill coupon at Target or pick up Arrowhead Mills at Whole Foods with the coupon in this month’s Whole Deal. Brown rice is one of the cheaper gluten free flours in general, and this single flour recipe also requires no Xanthan gum or other additives.

Gluten Free Dairy Free Blueberry Pancake Bites

inside-a-pancake-bite-2

Ingredients

1 cup brown rice flour
2 tsp gluten free baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
2 Tbsp maple syrup (these were pretty sweet, although the boys didn’t object! I might cut back to 1 Tbsp next time or omit entirely)
1 cup vanilla soy milk
1 egg
1 Tbsp vegetable or canola oil
1/2 tsp vanilla
6 oz frozen blueberries (or what’s left after your own Mr. 7 equivalent eats some while you’re adding them to the batter…)
Cooking spray (to grease muffin tin)
Brown sugar (for topping — I might change that up next time too)

Directions

pouring-blueberries

In large bowl, stir together rice flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Add egg, oil, maple syrup, vanilla, and vanilla soy milk and mix until well blended.

mr-7-stirs

Stir in blueberries, preferably while wearing PJs and a winter hat…

add-brown-sugar

Pour batter into greased mini muffin tin. Top each with brown sugar and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes, or until butter knife inserted in the center comes out clean. (These won’t get very brown, so don’t rely on that for a measure of done-ness.)

cooling-on-rack

Let cool in pan for a couple of minutes, then remove to wire rack to cool the rest of the way. Enjoy warm.

A hit with both boys

blueberry-pancake-bites

We enjoyed our Blueberry Pancake Bites with eggs and sausage as part of a comforting winter breakfast-for-dinner, but they’d also be fantastic for a quick make-ahead breakfast for busy school mornings. Next time I think I’ll make a double batch to freeze, and I’m also thinking about different mix-in ideas — maybe cut up some cinnamon baked apple, for instance.

blueberry-pancake-bites-5

These are tastier, fresher, and so much more affordable than some of the frozen gluten free/dairy free pancake alternatives, too! Definitely a keeper.
