Dairy Free Cream Puffs #GayLeaMom

Dairy Free Cream Puffs - only 3 ingredients!!

I’ve done a lot of baking over the years, but I’ve always been intimidated by fancy pastries. I can manage cookies, cakes and pies, but anything beyond that is beyond me! But after an adventure making campfire eclairs with my sister, using just a few ingredients, we thought we should adapt that to an oven recipe.

We also decided to try it with coconut whipped cream, to create dairy free cream puffs. Have you heard of Gay Lea’s Real Coconut Whipped Cream? It’s absolutely delicious!! It is made with real coconut cream, and is non-dairy, and lactose- and gluten-free! Perfect for those with food sensitivities!

I live in Bowmanville, and am a mom to four young boys - it can get a little loud in my house. I am a Christian, a part-time French teacher, a piano teacher and former homeschooler. I love finding the best deals, which will come in handy when our boys become hungry teenagers! We just moved to a house with more outdoor space, and I'm still getting used to life in the country (a walk around the block is a lot longer here!).
