We’ll get to the 2 ingredient pancakes in a minute, but first let’s talk about almond flour. I mean, if you want. You can scroll down to the good stuff if you’d rather do that.
A blog post about the perils of almond flour has been making its rounds lately. These things kind of bug me because people start freaking out:
“I thought almond flour was okay!”
“So, I can’t bake anymore?”
“I’m so confused, what can I eat?”
This particular post said that there are about 90 almonds in a cup of almond flour (I make my own almond flour, and I counted about 70 blanched, whole almonds). I don’t know about you, but if I ate a full cup of almond flour in one day I’d be having some problems. Continue reading →
Do you like your cookies chewy? These simple Paleo chocolate chip cookies have a tempting texture that may force you to shift your willpower into overdrive!

These simple Paleo cakes can also be made as cupcakes or muffins.
I used this fancy-schmancy pan that I got for Christmas to make cute little bug cakes. Nordic Ware makes a variety of these molds that make different shapes, like cars, zoo animals, and dinosaurs. The pans are made of aluminum and they use a non-stick coating, which I’m not a fan of, but how often do you make little bug-shaped cakes?
Sometimes you just gotta throw Paleo caution to the wind!
Don’t be put off by the coconut-flour-only nature of this recipe. It’s actually fluffy and moist, and doesn’t have that weird throat-grabbing texture that can happen with a lot of coconut flour recipes. Continue reading →
People often complain that grain-free pancakes aren’t fluffy like wheat-flour pancakes. But using the right blend of ingredients, you can create a puffy stack of Paleo pancakes that will satisfy your comfort-food cravings.
A ripe banana and grated apple add a nice blend of flavors. Any leftovers you have can be stored in a container. Heat them up or eat them cold like a muffin. Continue reading →
This is a revised version of an old Paleo pumpkin bread recipe that was posted about a year ago. I made the executive decision to use this one as a replacement.
Use fresh pumpkin purée for this one. Pumpkins are everywhere this time of year, and they’re simple to cook. You can make a big batch and freeze it in half-cup portions for future recipes. Continue reading →
