It works perfectly for those rainy summer days or a  formal dinner. This recipe has become one of my favorite recipes ever! It has all the elements that I love in a good recipe.

For starters, this recipe is a complete confirmation that healthy ingredients DO make delicious foods.

 I prepared this gluten-free campfire mousse with gluten-free Seeds & Grains bread from Little Northern Bakehouse, that as I’ve told you before, is one of my favorite gluten-free bread brands.

ingredients for the sweet croutons

This loaf with seeds and grains is so flavorful, crunchy and perfect for this recipe because it holds its form and tastes delicious.  Not every gluten-free bread can be moist, delicious, nutritious, and as versatile as the ones from Little Northern Bakehouse. You can’t go wrong with Little Norther Bakehouse! All of their products are non-GMO, celiac, and vegan-friendly. So, anyone with wheat sensitivities or allergies can eat them. Isn’t it amazing! They are allergy-friendly. WOW, right?

In this recipe,  I lightly toasted each slice, cut them into small pieces, and dredged them in brown sugar and cinnamon. Then, I used these small, flavorful, and delicious pieces of gluten-free bread to top the most delicious dark chocolate vegan mousse EVER. 

I finished each serving by drizzling everything with a rich and decadent chocolate sauce and adding vegan marshmallows.

Here are some tips, tricks & other recipes:

  • You can use any loaf of Little Northern Bakehouse; it will taste good with any type.  I love the Grains & Seeds one because of the extra layer of crunchiness it gives.
  • It is better to coat the small pieces of bread while they are still warm. This way, the brown sugar, and cinnamon will stick.
  • Here are other recipes I’ve made with Little Northern Bakehouse, which I’m sure you are going to love: gluten free cauliflower banh-mi, poblano mushroom protein packed sandwich and creamy vegan pot-pie soup

One of the best things about this recipe is that you can prepare everything in advance and put it together just minutes before serving. I also find this dessert to have the best flavors of a campfire; you know that great feeling of peace and vacations that camping and outdoors give. This recipe is for everybody, including gluten-free diets. Everybody will find this dessert delicious, addictive, and perfect for summer.

So please go ahead and prepare this.
