Hello everyone, hope you have a wonderful midweek so far! πŸ€—

I have been on gluten free diet for almost 5 months now and I want to enjoy our traditional treat fried brioches or none traditional sweet sesame seeds donuts again. I decided to make them today. 😁 They are known for soft, fluffy, and hollow inside. We used to get from the store to eat by themselves for breakfast, or dip into green onion porridge πŸ₯£ also. (Store uses wheat so I can’t have them anymore).

Recipe:

1. Mix well: 1 and 1/3 cup gluten-free flour (I used quinoa, buckwheat mixed with almond flour), 1 tbsp baking powder, 
1/4 tsp salt, 1/2 cup of cashew milk, and 2 tbsp of cane sugar.

2. Mix 1 tsp dry yeast with luke warm water (let it sit until froth), 2 tbsp ground flaxseed mixed with water.

3. I used standing mixer for kneading all ingredients together with 1 tsp of vanilla extract. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let it sit for an hour.

4. Roll into balls and dip into mixture of sesame seeds, then flatten them. All ready for deep frying ( no other way around if I want them fluffy and hollow inside) in olive oil.

They are crispy outside and soft inside, scrumptious with a cup of chamomile tea. πŸ˜‹πŸ‘

As always, be inspired, be joyful, take a picture and Enjoy it! πŸ˜‹β€οΈ

Thank you HungryHufflepuff very much! πŸ€—πŸ™

You are right it’s okay to fry sometimes so we can enjoy certain delicious treats/food. 😁

Hope your sheep babies are doing great in this cold weather and you’re keeping warm and restful in the evening. πŸ€—πŸ‘β€οΈ

My sheep are doing ok though it has been very wet and windy weather, so to cheer my sheep up, I keep giving them my Brussels sprouts. But I love Brussels sprouts too! So then I have to buy more for me, but then I seem to give those to my sheep too! ☺️ I hope you and your fur babies are keeping warm too 🐈 πŸ•πŸ‘

Awe I’m glad they are doing okay and I can imagine how that kind of weather is not so good but they have a nice pad you have for them. 😊

Wow they love sprouts too just like us. You’re so kind to share with them. I love them boiled with chives with a little bit soy sauce and sesame seeds like how they serve in jap restaurants. πŸ˜‹πŸ‘

Thank you all our fur babies are doing fine and happy. πŸ•πŸˆπŸ‘β€οΈ

Wow these look good Koko I love sesame seeds as they pack a great nutritional punch as they are packed with calcium so a great addition for both the gluten free tribe and the plant based tribe.

I’d love to try these briochesβ€¦πŸ˜

Hi Byron2020,

Hope you are keeping warm and well. πŸ€—

By now, being on GF diet, I no longer feel bloated and my eczema is completely almost gone. I don’t have migraine now but just some usual headache if I’m stressed which I probably will stop getting quarterly migraine shots when I feel πŸ’― confident I don’t need it anymore.

Thank you Byron2020 very much for saying that about my brioches! πŸ˜ŠπŸ™

They are so delicious and I would share anytime if you’re my neighbor. 😁

Have a peaceful weekend ahead! 😊

Congrats on your 5 months Gluten Free!πŸ₯‚βœ¨πŸŽ‰ I knew you could do it😁. Your GF brioches look like they came out perfect and are so appealing πŸ˜‹. Have a good nightπŸ™πŸ€—.

Thank you Debs, time has gone by so quick and it does pay off being on gluten free along with wholesome vegan diet. πŸ€—πŸ™

These are so good just toasting them and enjoy with ice cream too. πŸ˜‹πŸ‘

Wish you are my neighbor Debs so we can enjoy over some good shows. 😁

I’ve been trying to rest my neck and shoulders all day today as I slept in wrong position last night, can’t move my neck much πŸ˜– but it’s gonna be alright soon with lots of tiger balm and salonpas. 😊

Hope you have a wonderful weekend Debs.πŸ€—β€οΈ

Awe thank you Debs. πŸ€—πŸ™β€οΈ

In the evening i was able to move wider range with my neck and today I feel better just a little bit sore. The weather changed so strange here as it got hot to 80F in a sudden so I found myself on top of the blanket and no pillow in awkward position that I must be in deep sleep that wasn’t aware. I have my beans neck pillow on so it helps resting my neck. After today more rest and tiger balm I will be fine. 😊

Hope your Saturday is wonderful so far. πŸ€—

So glad your feeling a bit better 😁 keep resting, they do say Tiger balm is great, something I have not tried yet. Glad you resting and hope its cooled down - that is very strange.

Take care Koko and keep resting 😁

Thank you Debs, it’s so hot still here so I made my detox drink Chlorophyll mint liquid supplement (I got from whole food market) and lemon juice to refresh. πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘

Enjoy your Sunday day fun day Debs! πŸ€—

I just saw this post. Hopefully by now you’re starting to feel better. Tiger balm is great, my mum told me about it last year when I hurt my foot. Arnica is good for healing bruising, I’ve used that for years, but it’s not really relevant for your predicament just now. Sending you lots of good wishes to feel better πŸ‘

Awe thank you HungryHufflepuff. πŸ€—πŸ™I feel better now, just need to apply tiger balm more and rest as I think I’ll be back like new after today. I’m sorry you hurt your foot and glad you healed well.

Thank you for letting me know about Arnica for bruising. I wish I knew that because it took a while for me to heal when I slipped and fell on porridge they spilled for patients at work that I didn’t see. πŸ˜…

Hope you have a beautiful Saturday so far with your family and fur babies, enjoy more yummy sprouts.πŸ€— πŸ‘β€οΈ

Those look awesome πŸ‘ Way to go on being GF for 5 months πŸ‘
