Hi,

Ok so I am going to my brothers next weekend and have been challenged with finding just the right receipe for cake, or cookies or something sweet. NO easy since his family has several eating restrictions they are on right now.

I need something gluten free, sugar free, diary free. I'll take diary free and sugar free if gluten can't be done, but it has to taste good. the stuff they have found so far sucks..

whatsanenigma:
Are artifical sweeteners an option or are those out too? If they can be used, I might have a suggestion for you.

JenJay:
Try the website "The Foodie and the Family". They are paleo and she likes to create recipes. I've had some really tasty stuff off there (but substituting dairy where possible because we aren't dairy-free).

Edited because I cannot make a link work.  ::)

In the past I've made coconut macaroons with maize cornflour instead of flour for a coeliac friend, and they were a huge hit.  It wouldn't be too hard to substitute Splenda or something for the sugar as well.

Splenda works to a point in meringue and pavlova recipes - slight change to the texture and colour of the end product.  Finding something to dress a pav would be the problem with the dairy free.

I make a sugar and dairy free fruit cake (yes, I know, the dreaded fruit cake, but they're popular here) every year, it should be possible to substitute gluten free flour for the cake.  There may be texture changes, but the original cake is more like a dense slice than cake anyway.  Soak 2lb mixed fruit in 2 cups apple juice overnight, fold in 2 cups flour and 1tsp mixed spice, bake in lined tin in a moderate oven ~2 hours or till cooked through.

Something meringue-based, if they can have artificial sweeteners.

Such as, peppermint meringues: http://www.skinnytaste.com/2012/11/peppermint-meringues.html

Is fresh fruit a problem? If not, I would do a tart. A nut-based shell, fresh fruit tossed with lime juice and mint (and honey, if honey is acceptable), topped with whipped coconut milk.

Shell recipe:
1 1/2 cups (190 grams) Blanched Almond Meal
1/4 teaspoon fine Sea Salt
1/4 teaspoon ground Cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/4 cup (48 grams) Sunflower or Canola Oil
1 tablespoon Water

Pre heat the oven to 350 degrees F with the rack in the middle. In a bowl whisk together the almond flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon spice. Break apart any lumps. Add the oil and water, combine with a spoon. Put the dough on a work surface. Knead the dough until well combined with your hands. Press dough into a 9 inch tart pan. Be sure to press it all the way up the sides and evenly throughout the pan. Put tart on a baking sheet and bake it for 15-20 minutes. Take it out of the oven and let the crust cool a bit.

You might want to search "dairy free paleo". I'm pretty sure that paleo, by definition, is GF and (possibly) sugar free. Here is a Pinterest Paleo dessert board: http://pinterest.com/mrsvandalsem/primal-paleo-desserts/
