Go Ahead Honey It's Gluten Free - Raising the Bar (Grain Free, Refined Sugar Free)

I am hosting Go Ahead Honey It's Gluten Free this month! It's my third time (see here and here). It is a gluten-free blog carnival started by the fabulous Naomi Devlin of Straight Into Bed Cakefree and Dried.

Nowadays, Grain Free is becoming more popular, appealing not only to the GF crowd, but also many health conscious folks as well. So what better than to have a Gluten-Free and Grain-Free theme? This months theme is Raising the Bar - Grain-Free and Refined Sugar Free Bars. So if you have a great brownie or bar that's Paleo, SCD/GAPS, Primal, Low Carb, or just simply Grain-Free (and Gluten-Free of course), join in.

Post a gluten-free recipe for a brownie or bar and link it to this carnival. Your recipe will need to be gluten-free and grain-free, but your blog does not have to be. If you do not have a blog you can email me your recipe with photo. Grain-Free ingredient possibilities may include almond flour, coconut flour, vegetables, starches, amaranth, quinoa, etc. Possible sweeteners may include honey, maple syrup, coconut sugar, dates, fruit, etc.

-Send me the link to your entry and a photo of it by July 28, 2013. My email address is Label it "Go Ahead Honey" in the subject bar.

-Check back for the recipe round-up. I will try to get the recipes posted by July 30.

You can check out June's Go Ahead Honey at And Love It Too, the theme is Primal Travel Food.
