Super Simple Gluten Free Strawberry Tarte

IMG_5971

Lots of snack hacks lately! I must admit that it’s been fun to find a different format of the blog, since after three years it can feel somewhat mundane to stay blogging the same way. Doing something different makes you realize and remember how fun and inspiring the blog actually can be (and that some people actually are reading it… 🙂 ). Spring has finally come to DC, and despite runny eyes and a lot of sneezing (and some claratin) it’s gorgeous out! Also, the times of somewhat mundane fruits and vegetables are coming to an end, and there’s finally AMAZING berries in the stores again. This strawberry tart is super easy to make, yet so beautiful and eye catching! In this recipe, I used whipped cream for the filling, but for a healthier version, you could switch it out for greek yogurt! Happy Baking!

Gluten Free Almond Flour Blondies – Glutenfria Mandelmjöls Blondies

IMG_5875

Ok, this is definitely one of the most delicious things I’ve eaten. I’ve never made blondies before because who doesn’t want all the chocolate one can have? Yet, I wanted to make something else than brownies and something else than chocolate, since I realize that is the most popular theme when it comes to baking here on the blog. So after some research I tried making these blondies, since it seemed to be the most popular recipe on -the internet-. I decreased the amount of brown sugar by accident, but they were still really sweet, and increased the amount of salt, because I love the sweet & salt flavor together. I also left out the white chocolate chips and the pecans, mostly because I didn’t have it at home. Although, THEY WERE SO SO GOOD. Honestly, they were very delicious. Although, I didn’t get the texture to become brownie like despite double time in the oven, so I would more so call it a blondie cake, nonetheless, you should make them too!

1/2 cups of brown sugar / 1.25 dl muscavado socker 

1/2 cup of white sugar / 1.25 dl vanligt socker

2 tsp of vanilla / 2 tsk vaniljsocker 

1 3/4 cups of almond flour  / 4.2 dl mandelmjöl 

1 tsp baking powder / 1 tsk bakpulver 

1 tsp salt / 1 tsk salt 

1 cups of chocolate chips / 2.5 dl chocolate chips 

1.Preheat the oven to 350. / Sätt ugnen på 175 grader.

2. Mix together butter and sugars until fluffy. / Vispa ihop socker och smör tills det är fluffigt.
