If you limit your grains (especially wheat) to be healthier and leaner – the holiday season can be challenging trying to avoid some of your favorite family foods. Turkey stuffing is one of those foods. But don’t despair! We’ve created a delicious grain free recipe that will satisfy your craving for stuffing!


Bread Alternative Ingredients:

Option #1: Simple Mills Almond Flour Baking Mix

Use this easy grain free mix to which you add eggs, water, oil, and vinegar to make your bread alternative.

Follow directions on the box to make the bread loaf. It is great for many other uses. If you cannot find it in the “healthy baking” section of your local market, buy it on our Amazon link here.

Option #2: Homemade “Cornbread”

  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 6 eggs (or 3 eggs and 1/3 cup coconut milk)
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted

“Cornbread” Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a medium-sized bowl sift together the dry ingredients. Slowly add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until very smooth. Grease a small bread pan and fill about 2/3 of the way full with batter. Bake for 40-50 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. This can be made ahead and frozen.

Remaining Ingredients:

  • 1 pound ground turkey sausage
  • 2 cups chopped water chestnuts or celery (or half of each)
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 5 cups crumbled almond or corn bread (from above)
  • 2 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth* (or more if you like a mushy stuffing)
  • 2 tsp poultry seasoning
  • 1 tsp sage

*If unsalted, add 1 tsp salt to recipe


Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Place sausage, mushrooms, celery, and onions in a large skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown. Drain excess liquid and set aside. In a large bowl combine sausage mixture with one of the bread options above, chicken broth, poultry seasoning, and sage. Mix well and transfer to a greased 9×12 inch baking dish. Bake, uncovered, for 45 minutes or until well set and cooked through. For extra crunchy top, place under broiler for 2 minutes.

Makes 12 servings.
