Grain Free GAPS Friendly Holiday Stuffing



GAPS Friendly Stuffing for Thanksgiving

I love this stuffing, we often eat it as a side dish aside from the holidays too. Add mushrooms, pecans, or other favorite additions as well for variety. My son is hit and miss with vegetables besides peas, but he loves this and it’s loaded with celery and onion.

4 cups yellow onion, peeled and coarsely chopped
4 cups celery, de-strung and coarsely chopped
2 cups almond flour
2 large eggs
4-6 tablespoons poultry seasoning
2 teaspoons baking soda
Butter, ghee, or tallow, to grease

Grease two loaf pans (or a bundt pan) and line them with parchment paper.
Place onion and celery in a large bowl.
In another bowl, combine baking soda, almond flour and poultry seasoning. Add to onion and celery and toss to mix. Stir in the eggs.
If desired, you can add another egg and use a food processor to combine all of the ingredients. This will create more of a bread texture, not a classic Thanksgiving dressing texture.
Pour dressing into the pans. Bake for one hour (you can bake it alongside the turkey for the last hour that the turkey is roasting).

    Thank you for posting this recipe! I am so excited to try it :) Thanksgiving is going to rock this year.

  2. Could you use coconut flour instead of almond flour?

    • Hi Tina, no, you can’t- coconut flour has way different properties.

      • bummer….I know coconut flour absorbs too much liquid. I guess we’ll stick to our cauliflower/lentil
        stuffing… I like the looks of this though, if we ever get to a point where the kids can have almonds.
        I may try it with sunflower seed flour at some point…any thoughts on that?

  3. Wat temperature?? 350??

  4. Is baking soda GAPS friendly?

  5. This stuffing is WONDERFUL!

  6. I loved this stuffing– for once I didn’t feel the least bit deprived! Thank you!
