CeliacCorner’s Featured Food Blogger for July: Allyson Kramer, Cookbook Author & Recipe Developer

Hi, I’m Allyson Kramer and I’m a best-selling cookbook author, recipe developer, and food photographer specializing in plant-based and gluten-free cuisine.allyson-kramer-gluten-free-vegan-recipes-2-1000x1675 I started blogging in 2009–back before I was diagnosed with celiac disease–to share vegan recipes and random thoughts, and have happily turned it into a full-time gig. I studied Fine Art in college and have been cooking and baking since I was a small child. These days I write cookbooks, develop recipes for companies and publications, as well as style and shoot food photography. I also run the Vegan Food Site for About.com. I live in Philadelphia, PA, with my best friend/husband, our two kids, and a houseful of adopted animal friends.

My recipes have been featured in numerous publications, including The Huffington Post, Vegetarian Times, Bust Magazine, Easy Eats Magazine, All You Magazine, VegNews Magazine, and Glamour Magazine. My cookbooks have received acclaim in the food community, including Vegetarian Times naming my debut cookbook “Great Gluten-Free Vegan Eats” as Top 5 cookbooks of 2012, and VegNews Magazine naming it a Top 10 of 2012.


(Don’t miss our Giveaway of Allyson’s newest e-cookbook: Culinary Quandaries: A Gluten-Free Dinner Party  … below is just one delicious recipe from the cookbook!) – Now Closed


Chocolate Swirl Banana Bread (Vegan & Gluten-Free)

Allyson Kramer


1 cup superfine brown rice flour
1/2 cup sorghum flour
1/2 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup tapioca flour
1 teaspoon xanthan gum
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup organic sugar
1/2 tablespoon ground chia mixed with 2 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 very ripe (mostly brown) bananas
1 cup nondairy chocolate chips, melted


Preheat your oven to 350 °F. Lightly grease and flour (using brown rice flour) a standard sized loaf pan.

In a large electric mixing bowl, whisk together the superfine brown rice flour, sorghum flour, cornstarch, tapioca flour, xanthan gum, sea salt, baking powder, baking soda and sugar.

Add in the prepared chia gel, vanilla extract, and bananas and mix on medium to high speed until smooth. Divide the batter in half and stir in the melted chocolate chips into 1/2 of the batter until very well mixed.


Drop spoonfuls of both colors of batter side by side and on top of one another until all has been transferred to the loaf pan, alternating colors as best you can. Take a butter-knife and slowly draw a swirl or two through the batter, but don’t over do it. You want to try and swirl through each section to gently merge the batters, but if you mix them too well your swirls won’t be visible. Bake in preheated oven for 60 minutes. Let cool at least 15 minutes before cutting.


Thanks Allyson!

  1. I would love to win this book because I was just diagnosed with Celiac disease after struggling throughout my entire life with different symptoms. It stumped many doctors and although I’m happy I finally know what is wrong, I’m so scared as I still don’t feel 100% confidence I’ll be able to take down as many of the symptoms as I possibly can!

    This book would help jump start this new lifestyle I must embark on!
