Banana Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Posted on March 1, 2014

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.

Blueberry French Toast Casserole

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.

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 ... read more →

Paleo Chocolate Chip Scones

Posted on January 28, 2013

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 ... read more →

Pumpkin Spice Muffins

Posted on November 5, 2012

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 ... read more →

Porridge

Posted on July 27, 2011

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, ... read more →

Banana Walnut Muffins

Posted on May 12, 2011

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 ... read more →

Almond Flour Muffins

Posted on April 4, 2011

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 ... read more →

Green Eggs

Posted on March 14, 2011

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 ... read more →

Muesli Scones

Posted on March 4, 2011

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 ... read more →

Orange Dark Chocolate Chip Scones

Posted on January 24, 2011

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 ... read more →

Biscuits

Posted on November 15, 2010

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.

Cinnamon Bun Muffins

Posted on December 16, 2009

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.

Carrot Banana Muffins

Posted on November 6, 2009

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 ... read more →

Lemon Rosemary Mini-Muffins

Posted on October 23, 2009

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 ... read more →

Mulberry Granola

Posted on October 5, 2009

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 ... read more →

Bran Muffins

Posted on July 27, 2009

I have been craving a good, healthy, tasty, gluten free bran muffin for quite some time.  Finally, thanks to flaxmania (I’m on a string of flax recipes this week) here it is.

My friend Chris was one of my guinea pigs for this baking endeavor.  She took a flax muffin home from my house one day and ate it the next for breakfast.  Later, I received a phone call from her requesting this recipe.  I take that as a good ... read more →

Pumpkin Pie Muffins

Posted on October 17, 2008

These gluten free Pumpkin Pie Muffins are, of course, a favorite of my younger son. When he was little, he ate so much pumpkin and winter squash that he turned a slightly orange hue. Luckily, he’s back to normal now.

I often forget how much I love cooking with pumpkin until fall arrives.  Well, fall is back and I have been using this vegetable with a vengeance.
