I am always searching for desserts that don't use flour/grains. Do you have any recommendations or favorites?

Thank you!

I think the best kind of desserts when looking for flourless recipes are ones that are naturally that way instead of subtitutions. Custards like flan and creme brulee are great alternatives as well as all kinds of meringues , roasted fruit and sorbets. For this hot weather though, I only crave ice pops. Here are some tips to make some on your own.

i love baked apples with dried fruit, nuts, and spices topped with fresh ricotta, whipped cream, ice cream, or mascarpone. i also love eggy custards, warm or cold.

I'm a chocaholic, so this is one of my definite go-to recipes when I want to be on the "lighter" side of chocolate. Ina Garten's Chocolate Sorbet, I put a dollop of fresh whipped cream on top of mine.

You could try my Red Bean Espresso Brownies. They're fudgy, chocolatey goodness. http://www.food52.com/recipes/10609_red_bean_espresso_brownies
