Pumpkin Cranberry Granola makes a great grain-free breakfast or healthy snack. This festive fall granola recipe is made with almonds, macadamia nuts, pumpkin seeds, cranberries, pumpkin puree, cinnamon, and a touch of honey, and it is darn delicious!
You will notice that this recipe calls for a 10 hour baking time at 170° –that is not a typo. Baking low and slow, rather than at a high temperature for a shorter time preserves more of the live (or raw) enzymes in […]

Paleo Bagels are perfect for a festive low-carb brunch. They’re fantastic toasted, then topped with smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, along with tomato or cucumber. If you can consume dairy, Paleo Bagels are wonderful with organic cultured cream cheese.
When I went grain-free in 2001, I thought my love affair with bagels had come to an end. But these grain-free bagels from my third cookbook, Paleo Cooking from Elana’s Pantry, have made that thought a moot point. Paleo Bagels also make […]

These super scrumpdidlyicious healthy Banana Chocolate Chip Pancakes are made from only seven ingredients. That includes the coconut oil in which you sauté them. The base of these pancakes (one of my super easy breakfast recipes) is cashews –that’s right, no flour, not even almond flour.
Replacing high-carb wheat flour with lower-carb cashews is fantastic for those watching their blood sugar. Cashews also work well in baking (see my Cashew Bread recipe) for folks who are gluten-free, which is another reason I use them.
While these quick and easy pancakes are a fantastic breakfast on a weekend morning, I also like to serve them along with an egg dish on Sunday nights for dinner. Breakfast for dinner is a family favorite in our house, and the boys especially appreciate the change in routine.

My boys and their friends devour these bite-sized mini-muffins and […]

Blueberry French Toast Casserole made with Paleo Bread is a mouthwatering Paleo Mother’s Day treat for the whole family.
Mother’s Day is coming up, and what better way to start Sunday than to prepare a batch of this healthy French toast made with my Paleo Bread dipped in a coconut milk-based batter. This Paleo brunch recipe is based on one called Bradley Inn Blueberry French Toast Casserole that I found in our local paper, the Daily Camera, in December 2007.
I suggest […]

Paleo breakfast bars made with almond flour, coconut oil, shredded coconut, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, and raisins.
This recipe for Paleo Breakfast Bars is an amended version of a recipe I posted in 2009. I have rewritten this recipe for several reasons.
First, although a number of people swore by it, others commented that the bars came out crumbly for them. Second, the original recipe was not Paleo as it contained grapeseed oil and agave (for more information on which foods are […]

Paleo Chocolate Chip Scones are a delicious gluten-free, grain-free, nut-free treat; naturally sweetened with honey.
I really don’t write a lot on my website because:
I’m not a writer.
I figure you all come here for the recipes anyway.
What’s the point? I like short and sweet. Literally.
Every now and then though, I do get the itch to write just a bit. And this recent comment on Facebook tickled my writing fancy:
I absolutely adore your recipes. I’ve been Paleo for over a […]

Celebrate fall with gluten free muffins made from freshly roasted pumpkin and coconut flour, along with a glass of almond milk.
If I had a grain free muffin of the month club November would be pumpkin spice muffins. September would be banana muffins and May would be blueberry muffins. Of course, I have no such club, however, I do love a good healthy muffin.
For those of you who have nut allergies? These grain free Pumpkin Spice Muffins are nut free.
The roasted […]

I discovered this hot cereal on Ricki Heller’s blog, Diet Dessert and Dogs, after she tweeted it a couple of days ago. I’ve had it for my gluten free breakfast every day since! You can call it hot cereal or porridge, either way, it’s a superfood way to start your day, and quick and easy at that. What is porridge? According to Wikipedia, porridge is a dish made by boiling grains such as oats or other cereal meals in water, […]

I originally posted this date sweetened, gluten free muffin recipe the year before last in my Great Agave Debate post. Because it was part of something so much bigger, it kinda got lost in the mix. I’m re-posting it because I think it’s an easy, super tasty, healthy recipe that will please both agave lovers and haters alike.
For more information on agave, please check out my Great Agave Debate post and all of the amazing reader comments and debate […]

I have been a huge fan of Michael Ruhlman’s book Ratio for quite some time. His work really came to life for me when I saw him speak at Blogher Food last year. He conveys his love of good food in a passionate manner, which I find compelling.So, when my friend Silvana invited me to participate in this month’s Ratio Rally, I said yes, even though I have not really baked using ratios and scales. I am definitely a numbers […]

When the boys were little we used to have green eggs for breakfast everyday. They grew out of that phase a while ago and now I think this Green Eggs recipe is perfect for St. Patrick’s day.
Now when I make these, I serve them with chicken breakfast links and my Dark Rye Bread (as shown above). Green eggs are a colorful, fun, super healthy, hearty way to get in green veggies at the start of your day. You can also […]

Did you know that I am obsessed with all things muesli? I have a recipe for muesli bread in my book, and I make just about everything else I can with muesli. While traditionally muesli has oats in it, I make mine grain free, as I follow as diet that is very close to Primal/Paleo.
So what exactly is muesli? According to Wikipedia, it is a “popular breakfast cereal based on uncooked rolled oats, fruit and nuts. It was developed around […]

It really is Joy the Baker’s fault. I have been baking scones every day since I read her post for Orange and Dark Chocolate Buttermilk Scones. I knew I would have to make my own gluten free version. So I did. And it’s scone mania over here. It’s gotten so bad that last weekend I made 5 batches of scones. All gluten free of course.
Joy, I wish I was your gluten free neighbor. And by the way, I do not […]

Okey dokey, here comes a turkey day fave. I’ve had a lot of requests for a gluten free biscuit lately, especially in my forums. These biscuits are super easy to make and high protein fare to boot. So you just might want to add these to your Thanksgiving menu. Or your Christmas dinner menu. Or a brunch menu. As you can see, they’re quite versatile.

These gluten free muffins taste like cinnamon rolls and make the perfect breakfast treat!
One of my favorite readers Courtney recently suggested that I create a gluten free cinnamon roll recipe. She said it would be perfect for Christmas morning. Being smack in the middle of Hanukkah that wasn’t something I had thought about. Thanks Courtney!
So, here’s my little ol’ gluten free Cinnamon Bun Muffin recipe. I hope you all enjoy it during the holidays.
Cinnamon Bun Muffins
2 tablespoons agave nectar or honey
1 tablespoon […]

When I saw this recipe for a purely fruit sweetened carrot cake from Heidi over at 101cookbooks.com I just knew I would want to make it into some sort of gluten free version. So I did.
Last weekend our friends Chris and Larry came over to sit out on our porch and read the Sunday New York Times with us while soaking in some good Colorado sunshine and we enjoyed these descendants of Heidi’s carrot, banana, date yumminess. Here it is […]

I’ve been slightly obsessed with rosemary lately. I put it in everything and just can’t seem to get enough of this delicious herb. My latest rosemary victim? Gluten free Lemon Rosemary Mini Muffins made with coconut flour.
I find that rosemary almost has a buttery flavor. It’s also power packed with nutrients including iron and calcium. These gluten free muffins are more of an adult treat than something for children. I’ve been in the mood lately for tasty snacking and dessert […]

When I was in New York a couple of weeks ago, I found a raw, vegan, gluten free granola made of mulberries and walnuts. It was absolutely delicious, though just a bit sweet for my palate.
I saved the package (it was made by International Harvest and they have other flavors as well), and this weekend found a dash of spare time to recreate their product without using the agave they add to sweeten it. I think it’s quite sweet enough […]
