Welcome back to March Muffin Madness (MMM)! I’m delighted to share a gluten-free and vegan recipe–Gluten-Free and Vegan Fluffy Chocolate Chip Zucchini Muffins–and some more exciting new giveaways here on gfe!
Fluffy Vegan Chocolate Chip Zucchini Muffins from Spabettie
I have long loved Kristina’s gluten-free and vegan creations at Spabettie. She describes these muffins as “mildly sweet zucchini muffins dotted with chocolate chips.” They look perfect to me, especially when placed on Dachshund Easter towels!
Kristina has many fantastic gluten-free muffin recipes on her blog, including a couple more zucchini-based recipes. Some of the ones that have caught my eye in the past are:

Today’s Daily Giveaway
Today’s prizes are:
Kristina is actually one of the co-authors of this cookbook. This cookbook is neither completely gluten free nor vegetarian. All of the recipes are labeled with symbols to indicate whether they are vegetarian, vegan, dairy-free, gluten free and/or wheat free. I’m one who believes in not simply sticking to gluten-free cookbooks once one goes gluten free. So often there are many recipes that are naturally gluten free or adaptable. (Note: I’ve had excellent results substituting my Two-Ingredient Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour Mix for gluten-full all-purpose flour, usually adding some xanthan gum as shared in my recipe, so you might give that route a try if you win this cookbook.)
The recipes run the gamut from dips and snacks to juices, salads, desserts, and more. I have not yet seen this cookbook, but I love the idea of incorporating more kale in my diet. Some of the recipes included are Kale Kimchi, Kale Shakshuka, and Spicy Moroccan Kale and Rice Soup.
Kristina is also one of the co-authors of this cookbook. Clearly, developed along the same lines as the We Love Kale cookbook, this cookbook is also not strictly vegetarian or gluten free. All of the recipes are labeled with symbols to indicate their special category status. The recipes are for snacks and drinks to salads, soups, mains, desserts, and more. Quinoa is a complete protein, which is known as a nutritional powerhouse. Some examples of gluten-free recipes in this cookbook are Lemon Quinoa Salad and Mushroom Quinoa Pilaf.
~ YUM: Plant-Based Recipes for a Gluten-Free Diet by Theresa Nicassio (1 winner)
This cookbook just recently came on my radar via a post from my dear friend Alisa of Go Dairy Free. She shared one of Theresa’s recipes, Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Cream Soup, as well as her review. Both the recipe and the book looked incredible. Alisa praised this cookbook for its recipes, personal touch, and Theresa’s perspective on living gluten free as a psychologist. I have not yet personally seen the cookbook myself, but contacted Theresa and learned that this cookbook was a winner of the Gourmand World Book Award and is now a contender for the 2016 Best in the World award. Impressive! As is the fact that this cookbook is 368 pages and offers 180 recipes. That’s a lot of YUM! Thanks to Theresa for graciously sponsoring a giveaway of her cookbook for MMM.
