Made with real ingredients!
Beginning with a little bit of history before we embark on these tasty Gluten Free Mexican Conchas. The word “concha” translates into ‘Seashell” in English. However for us a Concha is a traditional Mexican treat. This sweet bread dates back to the 18th Century when French, Spanish and Italian bakers established themselves in Mexico. As time has past this treat has become an an integral part of Mexican culture and is often shared during family meals and special holidays. Growing up as Mexican Americans we’ve enjoyed this treat countless times. They are a nostalgic part of our childhood. Now as adults with gluten sensitivities we have had to learn how to enjoy our favorite treats as well as take care of our health. Thus these delicious Gluten Free Mexican Conchas with real ingriendents came to be.
As we know Concha’s come in mainly three traditional flavors- Vanilla, Chocolate & Pink (Vanilla with red food coloring). In this recipe we created took the essentials of a traditional Concha. We used all organic ingredients including cacao powder for chocolate and freeze dried strawberries for the “pink’ flavor and last but not least our favorite matcha green tea powder. We were so excited to use real ingredients to create delicious flavors that you can actually taste.
These Conchas used gluten free flour but please feel free to experiment and use real flour as well. Also we encourage you to experiment with different flavors, as it was so fun creating these flavors. We can’t wait for you to make these Gluten Free Mexican Conchas for family and friends to enjoy with coffee or tea!
