Gluten-free Apple Cobbler





There are a few of us who are eating gluten-free at our Church and today's recipe, absolutely delectable finger-lickin good gluten-free apple cobbler is a great contribution to that-- or just as a family treat.  

The trick will be to keep it away from all the people who can indulge in wheat desserts (like brownies, etc.) so that the gluten-free eaters at least get a chunk to sample at our Church and today's recipe, absolutely delectable finger-lickin good gluten-free apple cobbler is a great contribution to that-- or just as a family treat. </b>The trick will be to keep it away from all the people who can indulge in wheat desserts (like brownies, etc.) so that the gluten-free eaters at least get a chunk to sample.























INGREDIENTS

6 medium/ 10 small organic Apples

1/2 C. Sugar

4 tsp Cinnamon

1/2 C. Extra Virgin Coconut Oil

1 1/2 C. Rice flour**

1/2 C. Coconut Flour

2 C. organic Sugar

2 tsp Baking Powder

1/2 tsp Sea Salt 

2 C. Rice milk or Nut Milk


METHOD

Cut coconut oil into a baking dish (I used a long glass cake pan) and place in a 350 degree (about 325 for glass) preheated oven until hot and oil is melted. (careful not to let it scorch). 

NO KIDS OR PETS IN KITCHEN. 

Carefully pull pan out of the oven and place on cutting board on counter, pouring the batter into the pan. 

Lay in the apple slices pressing into the batter. Jumble those apple slices up, as long as they are pressed into the better it doesn't matter how they are spaced!   



Pour the juice created in the bowl of apples over top.

Return to the oven for 50-60 minutes. After 45 minutes it is a good idea to insert a toothpick about every 5 minutes-- if it comes out clean, the cobbler is ready to come out into the world!

**I made my own rice flour in the Vitamix with long grain brown basmati rice that our neice brought here on a visit last summer... must say that I am happy with that experiment-- and will save a whack on rice flour!

HubPages and Vegan-Gluten-Free Recipes


I'm sure you have noticed that there is gluten-free information all over the internet now.  There are some amazing gluten-free and celiac responsive sites that offer information about how to cope with dining out, etc., and provide fabulous recipes. 

 There are at least a dozen Twitter names with Gluten-free in them, and lots of groups on Facebook.  Did you know that HubPages also carries a wealth of fascinating articles dealing with a gluten-free lifestyle and gluten-free choices?




 Are you familiar with HubPages?    HubPages is a vibrant community of "hubbers" publishing "hubs" (informational articles and thought pieces).  There is an infrastructure set up for learning and for "revenue maximizing" or "monetizing"-- you know, getting paid for writing what people want to know about.  Like Facebook, it is socially diverse-- there is every style of writing from market hack to some fairly fine unique academic research (and everything in between, mostly).
Here are some examples of articles related to Gluten-free topics on HubPages:

As I mentioned, it is another social networking community in that the hubbers are there for a common endeavor, read each other's articles and rate them.  

There are opportunities to link up with other hubbers as followers, and to engage in commenting on each other's works.... a sure search engine bonus with Google and Yahoo, both part of the eco-system of HubPages and enabling traffic to be driven to your hubs in an organic way that doesn't necessarily happen in other like-communities.  You can tell that I am already a hubber.  If you are interested in signing up (**free**) and trying your hand at some fun revenue-generating writing on topics you know about and love, just click here and register with HubPages-- it's not daunting and because of the inbuilt rewarding system (ratings, comments, genuine opportunity for earnings, friendships, fascinating stuff to read and learn about with lots of expert and peer support)the motivational tools are there to launch a solid writing/affiliate marketing career. 

 If you are currently a blogger, it's a great way to increase traffic to your blog as well.  

Truly, the more you write, the better you get, the more you earn.  Why not check it out?  I am Techy Gran at HubPages... you can find me here if you have questions, want to follow me, or just check out what I've been up to!  In the meantime, it's my continuing privilege and desire to keep providing good information and recipes at the Gotta-be-Gluten-Free blog!  All the best in your health & happiness ~Cynthia
