Gluten free recipes at our Cape Cod Bed and Breakfasts

Gluten free recipes at our Cape Cod Bed and Breakfasts

We have always said that breakfast are a special time at our two bed and breakfasts, Brewster by the Sea and Captain Freeman Inn. We are continually trying new recipes and have been especially creative this summer since we have several new accomplished employees helping us with breakfasts at our new inn, the Captain Freeman. A recent challenge has been to create some new recipes for our guests requiring a Gluten Free Diet. We love to surprise them with home made bread, cookies and pancakes. We recently came up with a new Gluten free Chocolate Macaroon cookie that is fabulous and all of our guests rave about it. It actually is so good we serve it on a regular basis even when we don’t have a gluten free guest staying with us. The recipe is so easy and is highlighted below.

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate pieces
4 large egg whites
pinch sea salt
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup lite brown sugar
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 cups shredded coconut
6 tablespoons cocoa powder

Preheat oven to 350
Melt chocolate pieces.
Add salt to egg whites and beat with electric mixer. Slowly add sugars to form soft peaks.
Fold in vanilla and coconut.
Add cocoa powder and melted chocolate. Gently stir to incorporate.
Using a 1 oz. ice cream scoop, scoop out cookies onto cookie sheet
Bake 20 minutes or less

You’ll be amazed at how delicious these cookies are. We have also adapted some new recipes for our lactose intolerant and vegan guests. We love to see happy guests at our breakfasts tables!

My favorite time of the day is sitting down with family and enjoying a nice cup of tea or coffee with a fresh baked cookie, after all, everything in life tastes a little bit better with chocolate!

A pandemic escape!

Amy and her staff are incredible. The attention to detail is hands down the best. Given all that is going on in this Covid-19 world, we felt safe and comfortable. Check-in was contactless. Our room was perfect. The breakfasts were wonderful and loved the cookies in the afternoon. The icing on the cake was Sweet Pea, Amy's dog, an absolute love! Amy, thank you, we'll be back!

Outstanding getaway!

This was our second time staying at this lovely inn. The rooms are tastefully decorated and the grounds are both spacious and tranquil. There is even a pool which is an excellent way to cool off after a day exploring the nearby trails or bike path. The breakfasts are creative and delicious and very filling. Amy, the owner and innkeeper is wonderful. She takes great care of the property and is so welcoming to her guests. She is very gracious in helping with advice on what to do in the area and making dinner reservations. We were among her first guests as Massachusetts began to "open up" during the Covid 19 crisis. She took great care to assure that everything was done to make her guests safe and comfortable. We look forward to returning.

A very enjoyable and relaxing stay

We had another wonderful experience here at Brewster By The Sea.  Lovely walks on the Flats and enjoying the local food!  In spite of COVID, Amy & staff helped us feel SAFE and at home!
