Paleo Breakfast Bars

Posted on March 20, 2013

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 Pecan Tart Crust

Here’s a healthy paleo tart crust made from pecans, egg and coconut flour –gluten free, of course!

This quick and easy gluten free tart crust holds together very well and has a wonderfully nutty flavor.

Paleo Honey Cake

Posted on September 18, 2012

Paleo Honey Cake made with high protein almond flour for your High Holiday celebrations.

Honey Cake, also known as Lebkuchen, is a traditional Jewish dessert eaten during Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year); my family sometimes serves it during Yom Kippur Break Fast as well since it is a warming, comforting food. Traditionally, we eat honey during the High Holidays as this ritual sets the tone for a sweet new year. It is common to dip apples in honey at the […]

Will the Healthiest Flour Please Stand Up?

Posted on July 19, 2012

Recently it was brought to my attention that I made a rather large factual error in my post Gluten Free is Not Healthy. You see, in this post I claimed:

Gluten free goods are generally made with ingredients such as rice, corn, potatoes, sorghum, tapioca and millet, which are higher in carbohydrates and lower in protein and other nutrients than wheat flour.

I apologize, as I did make a mistake in claiming that sorghum is not as healthy as wheat flour itself. […]

Primal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Posted on May 7, 2012

Grain free cookies made with high protein almond flour, naturally sweetened with honey.

Primal. Paleo. Specific Carbohydrate. GAPS. Call it what you want. I began the grain-free diet in 2001. I have adhered to it religiously ever since. When I began, I followed the Specific Carbohydrate Diet; since then, although I’ve used various sweeteners and oils, I have not veered from grain-free. This is not a fad for me. It’s not even something that really has a name. When I started […]

Vegan Raspberry Streusel Bars

Posted on April 23, 2012

Gluten free, grain free raspberry streusel bars, made with high protein almond flour, lightly sweetened with xylitol.

This recipe for vegan raspberry streusel bars is based on one by Brittany at Real Sustenance. Ever since she posted her delicious looking recipe last year during the holidays I’ve been wanting to make it.

I adjusted her recipe by removing the sweetener from the crust and by increasing the amount of high protein items in the streusel so the topping would be a bit […]

Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies

Posted on February 2, 2012

Dark chocolate, milk chocolate and white chocolate, all in one gluten free chocolate chip cookie.

I can assure you, this is not a Paleo cookie. It is not even a Primal cookie. It is a special occasion cookie –a wonderful treat to serve at a gluten free Super Bowl party. It also makes a great holiday cookie (think gluten free Valentine’s Day dessert). Lately, everyone who has been over to our house –gluten free or not –has been gorging themselves on […]

Coconut Bars

Lightly sweetened gluten free, grain free Coconut Bars contain good fats from heart healthy coconut oil.

These rich and moist coconut bars are made of not one, but three different forms of scrumptiously healthy coconut, including shredded coconut, coconut oil and coconut milk in their ingredients list.

I have Shirley at Gluten Free Easily to thank for this recipe as it is based upon her famous gluten free Crustless Coconut Pie. I’m a big fan of Shirley’s crustless pie recipes. They’re perfect […]

Baked green apples topped with high protein almond flour crisp; low carb and low sugar, sweetened with xylitol.

Here’s a lovely seasonal treat –gluten free apple crisp that’s simple and easy to make with very few, and very healthy ingredients. This recipe for Granny Smith Apple Crisp is particularly low carb because I use the low glycemic sweetener xylitol.

Since so many people have written to me to tell me they do not use agave, I thought it would be nice to […]

These gluten free Goji Power Bars were a hit at the gym the other day.

My fellow gym rats were delighted when I brought these Paleo friendly, high protein, gluten free snacks to the gym last week. The consensus? These gluten free power bars hit the spot.

Made with healthy, high protein almond flour and nutritious goji berries, the gang wolfed these down, then asked for more. I promised them I would post this recipe for gluten free power bars and so […]

Paleo Bread

Posted on August 30, 2011

This gluten free bread is easy to make, tastes great, and is full of nutrient dense ingredients.

Gluten free isn’t necessarily healthy, especially when it comes to bread.  Here’s a gluten free bread recipe, made of high protein ingredients that won’t leave you dragging.  I’m loving every slice that comes from this new Paleo diet friendly bread recipe.

This bread is just a bit lighter and fluffier than my other breads.  It has a nice nutty flavor from the flax meal which […]
