Tasty and Convenient Gluten-Free Recipes

Discover gluten-free recipes with Fitlife Foods. Eating gluten-free has never been so easy — Fitlife Foods delivers throughout the Southeast U.S.

Eating gluten-free has become more popular in recent years, and fortunately for gluten-free eaters, GF recipes and ingredients have become more abundant and delicious as a result!

Eating Healthy and Gluten-Free

Gluten is a protein that occurs naturally in foods such as wheat and some other grains. However, gluten is also added to some foods during processing for texture. If you’re eating GF, always check the labels of processed foods, or consider phasing processed foods out of your diet.

People with celiac disease become ill as a result of any contact with gluten. People with gluten intolerance or gluten sensitivity may have a less serious reaction, but still want to avoid gluten in order to feel their best and keep their digestion working well.

What Carbs are Gluten-Free?

Eating gluten-free is not the same as a no-carb diet. Many foods that contain carbohydrates do not contain gluten, meaning even if you are eating GF, you can actually enjoy a wide range of healthy gluten-free carbs such as rice, potatoes and beans.

Healthy Gluten-Free Dinner Recipes

Lots of gluten-free home cooks rely on proteins, rice, and vegetables as their main categories to pull from for healthy GF recipes. The “Kitchen Sink” recipe below allows you to use whatever ingredients you have available in your refrigerator or pantry to make a gluten-free dinner at home.

“Kitchen Sink” Gluten-Free Rice Bowl Recipe

Start with a hearty gluten-free base such as rice, quinoa, or cubed and roasted sweet potatoes. 

• Cook the rice or other base as directed.

• For a paleo or low-carb version, use leafy greens as your base instead.

Prep your protein. 

• If you already have some leftover shredded chicken, hamburger meat, or steamed tofu in the fridge — pull it out! 

• Otherwise, you’ll need to cook something up. This is a great step to batch for the week ahead when you are meal planning — you can roast several chicken thighs in the oven or air-fry a whole package of cubed tofu. 

• In a pinch, drained, canned black beans or garbanzo beans work great as a vegetarian protein for your bowl.

Add vegetables. 

• This is where “everything but the kitchen sink” really comes into play.

• Use up that little bit of leftover diced red onion, chop up the last few radishes that are still in the produce drawer, or throw in a few cherry tomatoes. You get the idea!

• You can use whatever vegetables you have on hand, whether they are fresh, pickled, or roasted.

Bring it together with a sauce.

• Notice what direction your ingredients have taken you, and finish with a sauce that pairs nicely. 

• For instance, with a sweet potato, black bean, and pickled red onion bowl, you can’t go wrong with a tangy BBQ sauce. 

• If you started with rice, and then added pulled chicken and fresh vegetables, a jarred salsa (and some shredded cheese if you aren’t dairy-free) will bring it all together beautifully.

You can experiment with your ingredients and the sauces and dressings you have on hand to find easy gluten-free dinners that work for your cooking style.

Gluten-Free Banana Bread Recipe

To make one 8-inch loaf of banana bread, you’ll need:

• 3 ripe medium bananas
• ½ teaspoon salt
• ½ cup sugar
• ¼ canola oil
• 3 large eggs
• ¼ cup full-fat coconut milk
• ½ cup coconut flour
• ½ cup tapioca starch
• ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
• ½ teaspoon ground cardamom
• 1 teaspoon baking powder
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
• ¾ cup dairy-free mini chocolate chips (optional)


1. Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees fahrenheit. Grease a 4.5x8-inch loaf pan.

2. Mash the bananas with a fork in a small bowl, then set aside.

3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the sugar, oil, and eggs. Beat with a hand mixer for 3 minutes. Add the mashed banana and coconut milk.

4. In a medium bowl, blend the coconut flour, tapioca starch, and spices and gradually add them to the egg mixture. Beat with a hand mixer for two more minutes, making sure to scrape down the sides. Allow the batter to rest for 5 minutes.

5. Add the baking powder, baking soda, and vanilla to the batter, mixing them thoroughly. If desired, fold in the chocolate chips.

6. Spoon the batter into the loaf pan. The batter will come to about 1 inch below the rim. Bake for 60-70 minutes, or until the top is firm and the crust is browned.
