A New Linky Venture with #G2BGF and a revisit of a favourite recipe - Coco-Banana Freeze Bites (gluten free/optional dairy free)


In the five years that I have been blogging, I have shared my recipes across dozens of recipe-linkies, but have never managed to cross the threshold in hosting one myself. The idea of hosting has always appealed to me, but I have held back, worrying about the extra time involved (whilst trying to fit the blog around a full time job and parenting)..... until now that is. My good friend and fellow blogger Rebecca over at Glutarama has asked me to join her in co-hosting a monthly linky 'Got To Be Gluten Free' (or #G2BGF for short) and I am excited to have said yes (albeit I'm a bit late in actually taking up the reins on account of there having been too much other stuff to deal with since Christmas).

The linky fits in perfectly on Gluten Free Alchemist and will be open to join from the 1st to the 28th of each month..... Any post that features a gluten free recipe can be linked, whether you are a free from blogger or not, so please come and join our monthly celebration of gluten free food.

The rules are simple..... Just grab the badge, share your creation, comment on the hosts posts and at least two others (well..... it's so good to share the love right?) and tweet/insta/facebook your link to us with the hashtag #G2BGF, so we can spread the word about how wonderful you all are.

Old posts are fine, as long as they fit the rules..... In fact this month, I am linking up one of my own most favourite (and most requested in our house....) recipes that first featured on Gluten Free Alchemist way back in 2014..... Coco-Banana Freeze Bites...... Easy to make, healthy frozen treats full of amazingly healthy ingredients that are perfect for a grab-and-go breakfast or nutritious between-meals snack.


It always saddens me when I look back over my early posts and realise that my readership was so small at the time that some of my best recipes have merely gathered the dust of cyber-space and not been enjoyed. So I am on a mission to start the long process of revisiting the gems and updating the best posts for my lovely readers.... and I have every intention of sharing as widely as possible to make sure that this time round, I spread the word about just how yummy they are.


My lovely co-host Rebecca is sharing her Self-Saucing Chocolate Pudding. Oh my goodness it looks amazing..... I don't know about you, but I could devour the lot in one go..... Interestingly I have never made a self-saucing pudding (either gluten free or not), so I for one will be testing Rebecca's pud.

But, over to you..... Come join us and feel free to link whatever you want.... old or new. I can't wait to see what amazing GLUTEN FREE goodies you share this month. We will of course round up all the entries at the start of next month and will choose our favourite as a winner to share.

And if you're looking for somewhere extra to link your creation, nip over to the #FreeFromFridays Linky hosted by Le Coin De Mel and Free From Farmhouse, which runs every Friday.

  1. I've just linked up my gluten free (and vegan) Mexican beans stew and shared the linky everywhere!
    I've also been revisiting my old posts, which back when I started 2 years ago hardly got any views - I've been reshooting, adding stuff to them and in some cases almost rewriting them! It's a great feeling, a bit like giving your house a good spring clean (which I want to do desperately but blog spring cleaning is my priority!)

    1. I imagine they go down a storm Mel. We LOVE Kalettes and the thought of adding Camembert to the mix sounds divine. I will have to give your recipe a try. Thanks for joining #G2BGF x

    1. That's absolutely fine Vicki. We would normally want a recipe, but given that this is such a positive support for people making the transition to gluten freedom, it's welcome here!

  4. It's so great to see yourself and Rebecca co-hosting this linky together and I'm really pleased I managed to link up this time (missed the boat on the last one lol). x

    1. Thank you Jo. It's about time I got my act together on the linky front..... I've been wanting to do something for years, but have always been put off by the idea of doing it alone..... So it's great to have Rebecca giving me a prod.
      Thanks for linking up! x

  5. Lovely to have you as my linky buddy darling, and what a recipe to start the ball rolling (see what I did there?) I'm a sucker for snacks like these, as they're healthy I can have twice as much right? ;-)
