Welcome back to the Paleo Challenge! I hope that you are enjoying living your life in the paleo way.
Filling up on fruits, vegetables, meats, nuts, seeds, berries, and healthy fats is so much more nourishing and satisfying that prepackaged food, wouldn’t you agree?
How did you do with last week’s mini-challenge? I challenged you to make paleo copycat recipes to see just how delicious a whole-foods approach to “regular” food can be! I love making paleo spaghetti out of spaghetti squash, and I made some paleo meatloaf last week in the crockpot. It was pretty good, even without the use of traditional fillers like crackers or oats. The whole family ate it without complaining, so we’ll call that a win. 🙂
Paleo Baking Mini Challenge
Dessert is my favorite meal. No, really, it is. You know, I have several favorite dessert recipes, but most of them are NOT baking related at all. I have an aversion to exact measurements, and we all know that baking is scientific! Luckily, most of my recipes turn out okay in the end. 🙂
Learn about this week’s challenge really fast in my quick vlog:
Baking without grains is not impossible, but it IS different. Be sure to read measurements carefully and do not substitute 1:1 coconut or almond flours. They work very differently in recipes and aren’t interchangeable as substitutes for one another.
Here are a few new (to me) recipes I want to try this week:
- Chocolate Strawberry Donuts
- Paleo Pumpkin Bread
- Almond Butter Banana Cookies
- Chocolate Chip Banana Blondies
- Blackberry Cobbler (I found them for .99 a container this week!)
Do you like to bake?
