This is one of those recipes that’s accidentally gluten free. Our goal was mostly to make pancakes that were super high in protein but tasted amazing. And after we achieved our primary objective bigtime, we then realized, "Oh! And no flour was used at all!" Bonus for gluten-free enthusiasts.

Apple Cinnamon Blender Muffins 1/12 of recipe (1 muffin): 77 calories, 1g total fat (<0.5g sat. fat), 187mg sodium, 16g carbs, 1.5g fiber, 2.5g sugars, 5g protein

We like eating oatmeal, we like eating apples… but what if we could combine the two in a way that didn't just feel like eating oatmeal with apples? This recipe combines healthy staple ingredients—we could pretty much throw a batch together any time! Perfect for fall… (P.S. Oats are naturally gluten free, but some brands may contain trace amounts due to sharing equipment with gluten-containing grains. Check your labels if you avoid gluten for health reasons!)

There are a lot of gluten-free pizza crust options out there these days, like those that are cauliflower-based. Well, this creation uses chickpea flour! It's the kind of pie you'll want to eat with utensils, and it tastes great. Plus, we love the protein & fiber in that bean-based flour.

Southwest Meatloaf Minis 1/5 of recipe (2 meatloaf minis): 252 calories, 9g total fat (3.5g sat. fat), 599mg sodium, 15.5g carbs, 2.5g fiber, 6g sugars, 27.5g protein

Many meatloaf recipes use breadcrumbs to help bind together the ingredients. Instead, we turned to quick-cooking oats! You don't really notice them once it's all cooked together—there are so many other tasty ingredients to enjoy here. Not gluten-related: Look how cute they are!

If you've gotten to this point on the page and read the above recipe title, we're pretty sure you're already sold. They're flourless brownies with peanut butter! The brilliant flour-replacer here is powdered peanut butter (aka defatted peanut flour). Make these brownies and prepare to be wowed.

Flourless Black Forest Cake 1/8 of cake: 115 calories, 2g total fat (1g sat. fat), 331mg sodium, 27.5g carbs, 5.5g fiber, 7.5g sugars, 5.5g protein

This dessert is a total dream come true. The richness of the cake base is boosted by black beans, pumpkin, and applesauce, but all you taste is CHOCOLATE. Finish it off with a gooey cherry topping and some whipped cream, and you'll be like "Gluten who? For what? No thanks.”
