Homemade goldfish crackers are surprisingly easy to make. With just six healthy ingredients –almond flour, salt, baking soda, cheddar cheese, olive oil, and egg, they make a fantastic gluten-free snack for kids.
If you are wondering if these are Paleo goldfish crackers, the answer is, I don’t know. It depends on what your definition of Paleo is. It depends on which foods your body can digest. It depends on what you consider a real food. I can tell you for sure though that these are grain-free goldfish crackers and that my boys and I loved them!

As you might imagine, cutting out dozens of tiny goldfish crackers can take a bit of time. If you want to save time and would enjoy a cracker that is more like a Cheez-It, simply cut the dough into squares after you roll it out on the parchment paper, and then transfer the parchment paper (dough and all) to the baking sheet. Be sure to use organic dairy when you make this recipe. We use organic dairy in our house as it is better for the children, the cows, and our environment overall, and we do not wish to support the regular use of antibiotics in animal husbandry.
This low-carb goldfish crackers recipe is a bit sentimental for me since I grew up on the processed, packaged goldfish crackers as a kid. I love eating these high-protein goldfish crackers with chopped liver. It’s quite a fatty and filling treat, which is a great thing for me!

I’m a little late to the cake doughnut party. In fact, this is my first doughnut recipe on the site. Thankfully, this is another easy recipe, with only seven ingredients –coconut flour, cacao powder, salt, baking soda, eggs, coconut oil, and maple syrup. To make it simply dump the ingredients into a food processor, throw the mixture in the doughnut pans, bake it, and bam! You’ve got gluten-free, grain-free doughnuts.

I’m often asked how I stay healthy. My long term healing plan keeps me well on a day-in-day-out basis. I also have tips and tricks for acute situations, like beating a cold or the flu. I use the healing strategies below when anyone in my family begins to feel under the weather. In fact, often when the boys’ friends start to feel something coming on they will ask me for some vitamins, herbs, or a special healing tea.
Here are my […]
I have some incredibly versatile icing recipes on this website. My Paleo Chocolate Frosting is an all time reader-favorite (with only three ingredients), and those who can eat dairy say that my Cream Cheese Frosting recipe is simple and deliciously addictive on my healthy Carrot Cake. I’ve been working on a frosting recipe for my Paleo Sugar Cookies however, for quite some time.
I’ve tested dozens of batches of icings in order to create one that is light in hue, so […]
I made these paleo Orange Poppy Seed Scones in honor of Valentine’s day. Truth be told, this holiday is not much of a thing in our house. If it’s convenient, my husband and I will go out to dinner on the night of Valentine’s day to celebrate each other and our relationship. Frankly though, I don’t put much stock in this holiday. Feel free to call me a grinch! However, when it comes to baking I’m a total holiday geek. […]
