Grain-Free Real Food Linky Carnival

gluten-free, grain-free, wheat-free

Welcome to the special grain-free linky carnival! This carnival will be open for entries the entire 28 days of the grain-free challenge. Feel free to link multiple great recipes and articles pertaining to grain-free issues and grain-free living. This page should serve as a resource page for everyone interested in grain-free living, even if you are not involved in the actual challenge.  The linky will close after 28 days, however, it will always be here as a reference and source for great real food grain-free recipes. Let’s have some fun!

The Rules are simple:

1 — No grains or artificial ingredients in the recipes. No wheat, barley, rye, oats, buckwheat, corn, spelt, teff, kamut, quinoa, millet, amaranth, sorghum, triticale or rice. Nothing commercially canned, packaged or processed. No fake foods. No soy or tofu, no artificial sweeteners like Splenda, no bad fats like margarine, soybean or corn oil. You get the idea.

2 — Provide a link back to this post on your site (a common courtesy).

3 — Please do not make me delete any non real food or non grain-free linkups. Please don’t link them here. This is a special carnival just for grain-free issues.

4 — Please link the URL of your actual blog post and not your blog’s home page.

5 — Be kind and come back and leave a comment after linking up. And check out some of the links. There is a wealth of knowledge here.

    Hi Jill, I’m excited to see what tasty recipes everyone bring to the table. I’m sharing a yummy 5 minute dessert and a dip that has stick to your ribs power.

  • Debbie @ Easy Natural Food October 6, 2011, 5:26 am

    Hi Jill, I love the idea of creating a grain free resource like this. I bet everyone is going to have a ton of recipes to share! I’ve shared my breakfast smoothie, breakfast sausage and chicken liver pate recipes, and plan to add a couple more.

    I shared a good time and money saving tip for cooking a big pot o beans and freezing them for later!

    Thank you so much for hosting!  What a great new carnival.  I shared a Tomato Basil “Pizza” w/ Cauliflower Crust. This is a fabulous grain-free version of “pizza”. Thanks again :)

  • Marykay October 6, 2011, 7:31 pm

    Thanks for doing this! We are just beginning to eliminate grains and I need this kind of resource!

  • Lauren Shanahan October 7, 2011, 1:53 pm

    Thanks for doing this!!!  This list of recipes will help make life (and eating) a little easier.  It’s always nice to have recipes that I can just use instead of having to adapt them for special diet restrictions.

  • Sheri October 8, 2011, 1:37 am

    Great carnival idea! I added my grain, gluten and sugar free macaroon recipe. I make this often and they are so easy and delicious.

  • Marissa Gossett October 10, 2011, 12:58 am

    I posted some warm fall beverages! Most teas and hot chocolate mixes contain soy lethicin – a yucky emulsifier – but the recipes I posted contain pure ingredients! -Marissa (

  • Emily Bartlett October 11, 2011, 3:42 am

    Hi Jill!  We’ve been grain-free for about a month, and are feeling great!

    I’ve shared 2 of my favorite recipes: Finger Jello and Carnitas.

  • Andrea Dierna October 11, 2011, 2:45 pm

    Quinoa isn’t a grain, though… it’s a seed! 

  • Melissa @ Dyno-mom October 11, 2011, 9:05 pm

    I am excited to look at what other people are baking. I have been trying to reduce our grain and then my mill died, so I am being pushed into it. I may try a hardcore grain purge but since baking is a serious must (better than Prozac) I need some options. Thanks for the linky, Jill!

  • Anonymous October 13, 2011, 1:03 am

    I posted a grain free cookie that is not only yummy, but also has the texture and crumb one would expect of a macaroon-type cookie. I can’t wait to check out all these grain free recipes!

  • Emily @ Recipes to Nourish October 13, 2011, 3:59 am

    Just shared another recipe, Grain-Free Banana Pancakes.  These are my daughter’s favorite.  They are so simple to make and delicious too.  Thanks again for hosting!

  • Mommypotamus October 14, 2011, 2:34 am

    Hi Jill! Linked up as suggested. 🙂 Just found you a few weeks ago when I ran across your 5 reasons to go grain free. LOVED that post and actually made it a recommended resource in my upcoming book on feeding babies. Awesome stuff you’re doing here!

  • Lee October 18, 2011, 1:27 am

    What a wonderful challenge! Thanks for the invitation to join in on the fun!  I’ve linked up my Banana Pecan Pancakes made with almond flour and a walnut pesto that would be a great spread on many grain-free dishes. Good luck with the challenge!  Now I’m off to peruse the great recipes here!

    Thanks for hosting this Jill! I can’t wait to check out all of the links!

  • Rebeca October 23, 2011, 10:23 pm

    I added a couple recipes to the round-up. The first is for Coconut Haystacks. These are a simple, no-bake cookies, loved by everyone, grain-free or not. The second is for almond flour scones. Enjoy!

  • annonymous October 24, 2011, 12:05 pm

    Thanks for this but the links for no 81 and 82 not working. Would love to get those recipes

    • Jill October 24, 2011, 3:03 pm

      They are working now — I just checked them.

  • Victoria Rockcliffe October 29, 2011, 1:43 am

    I shared my Apple Pie recipe, who needs grains?

  • Victoria Rockcliffe October 29, 2011, 1:45 am

    I also shared my Carrot cake recipe.

    Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up.

    The text in your post seem to be running off the screen in Ie.
    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you
    know. The design and style look great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon.

    However, there are several online interfaces available
    where one needs to click on different types of options to send HTML
    code in email or to generate HTML code. Wouldn’t it be easier if we could be able to save changes ourselves whenever we want. Decide now because if you are a weight lifter, you will not build the chest that you are looking for.

    Are you operating on a small budget for your chicken coop
    project. I have known a lot of people who have got into a bit of a mess using free designs only to find, halfway through construction,
    that they were incomplete or unclear

    For those with more stringent requirements for security and privacy, then L2TP is a more advanced VPN.

    One of the best features of the Android OS is the availability of third party
    applications. Android is the open source product, according
    to experts it will continue to render cutting edge technologies for the users
    as it will emerge with the time.

    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four e-mails
    with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Thanks a lot!

    I’m impressed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a
    blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and without
    a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is something that
    too few people are speaking intelligently about. I
    am very happy I stumbled across this in my hunt for something concerning this.

  • March 21, 2015, 7:22 pm

    It’s in fact very difficult in this active life to listen news on TV, so I simply use web
    for that reason, and take the hottest news.
