I have been a follower of yours for a VERY long time as well as Paleo for 2 years now. I have Iost 50 pounds and way more inches I can account for. I went from a fluffy size 16 to a very thin size 4. I feel incredible. Better than going GF alone. I think to myself, I must have had intolerances to other grains and not realized it. I truly appreciate your sharing your dabbling in Paleo. I can relate to needing a cookie just for mom every once and a while. True, made me giggle. Make sure your Paleo readers get the lowest sugar content chocolate chips possible. We get the bars and chop them up.
I try not to keep chocolate chips in the house because I will eat them by the handful. 🙂 But I made these (without the chips) in a chocolate craving three days ago and again today for 4th of July celebrations! SO GOOD. After reading all the comments about crumbly cookies, I used my best judgment with the texture and ended up adding about an extra 2 TBSP of coconut oil to the mixture since my “pure” almond butter was still rather dry. They came out perfect. Soft to be sure, but that’s what I love about them. I get more of the almond butter taste up front but they linger with the deepest chocolatey fudge taste. Excellent. Thanks for my new go-to Paleo treat!
Larabar makes bars and bites filled with nuts, seeds, and other superfoods that make a great, inexpensive travel Paleo snack (one bar typically costs around $1). It’s a good idea to keep a few of these in your car, purse, or desk as a light snack. While not all Larabar products are Paleo, all are GMO-free, minimally processed, and made with all-natural ingredients. Some Paleo-approved Larabar flavors include Pecan Pie, Cashew Cookie, and Apple Pie.
I just made these and they are so good! I used honey because I made these on a whim and didn’t have coconut sugar (plus it’s snowing here and I didn’t want to go out). My almond butter was very dry so I did have peanut/almond butter. Also had to crush up a dark chocolate bar because no chips on hand. I love how your recipes are so easy to play around with. Thank you again for another great recipe 🙂
These zucchini bread bars are perfect when you're craving something a little sweet. These tasty squares will totally hit the spot, and they're filled with better-for-you ingredients like zucchini (duh), cashew butter, coconut flour, and eggs. Plus, they're sweetened naturally with the help of banana and a touch of maple syrup. Go ahead, treat yo-self!
wow! i made a couple of your no grain cookie recipes before but this one takes the cake, er, cookie! this time, however, i opted for 1 1/2 cups almond meal with 1/2 cup buckwheat flour. i needed to add about 1/3 cup water to make the dough come together. along with vegan choc chips, i threw in some walnuts and ate three cookies before they were completely cool! since my dough only make 12 cookies, i will probably eat them all in a day. : )
Fruits are nature’s nutrient-rich sweet treats and unprocessed, they have a whole host of health benefits to offer including detoxifying, disease-fighting antioxidants and phytonutrients, vitamins, minerals and fiber. Because of this and how well they’re generally tolerated by the body, all types of fruits are considered a great part of a healthy and balanced paleo diet. However, because most do contain high levels of fructose (a fast-digesting carbohydrate), many paleo enthusiasts recommend watching your fruit consumption, especially if you’re trying to lose weight.
These clusters are great for popping, and they’re made from one of the healthiest seeds out there, pumpkin seeds. In fact there’s only four different ingredients to these, so they’ve kept it very simple, and you don’t have to worry if there are any unapproved items here. These are going to be sweet from the use of honey and coconut sugar, with a strong vanilla flavor from the vanilla extract. You can use these to satisfy your sweet tooth without the need to eat an entire dessert.
Unlike many traditional stuffed pepper recipes, these stuffed bell peppers are stuffed with things you might actually eat while watching the big game. Basically it entails mixing up a batch of buffalo chicken salad, complete with chicken, hot sauce, and bleu cheese, and then stuffing them into a pepper. This means you’ll be getting a nice balance of vegetables and meat, as well as that classic buffalo flavor with the hot sauce and bleu cheese. Plenty of protein in this snack that eats like a meal if you need it to.
Hi! Sorry for just now seeing your question. In US English recipes, almond flour always means what you probably call “ground blanched almonds.” We don’t even have the deoiled / defatted “almond flour” that’s sometimes sold in other countries. Coconut flour is coconut flour. “Coconut flour is a soft flour produced from dried coconut meat.” I hope that helps!
