Healthy Bakeware and Grain-Free Cupcakes with Buttercream Frosting

Healthy Bakeware and Grain-Free Cupcakes with Buttercream Frosting

A few weeks ago we discussed the importance thinking about our cookware. Today I’ll highlight some healthier bakeware choices for all your baking and roasting needs.

Most bakeware sold in stores is made of an aluminum mixture. This aluminum can leach into our food. Non-stick and silicone-coated pans can also leach harmful chemicals and gases into food and the air, so I stick with stainless steel, ceramic, stone and glass.

Here are some of my favorite choices:

Baking Sheets: Stainless steel is a great choice for an all-purpose baking sheet. It heats evenly and is very sturdy. They are a bit more expensive than aluminum, but these pans last a lifetime. You can find stainless steel baking sheets at Amazon,  The Baker’s Kitchen, and Azure Standard.
