Foodie Friday: 2 Ingredient Paleo Pancakes

Paleo Pancakes
Is there an award for the worst food photographer? Because if there is, someone nominate me!  Whilst not the best pictures, rest assured that these paleo pancakes taste AMAZING.

No wheat, no gluten, no sugar – perfectly healthy and done in a flash too! 

I’m gearing more towards meals that take less and use less lately so these are perfect. They’re also a good weekend treat when you don’t want to ruin your healthy eating streak but fancy something a little different.

So it’s really simple you need 1 banana and 1 egg.  Continue reading “Foodie Friday: 2 Ingredient Paleo Pancakes”

Almond and Coconut Butter Cups – Gluten Free

The only problem with making so much almond butter is that I’ve now got to find ways to use it. So since I seem to have a bit of a sweet tooth this weekend I decided to make some almond and coconut butter cups.

These cups are basically a healthy (paleo and gluten free too) version of Reese’s Butter Cups.

They are extremely rich so it’s a great way of having a sweet snack without binging!
57g Almond butter
5 teaspoons honey (I used 3 teaspoons of honey and 2 of sweet freedom)
3 tablespoons coconut oil
90g pure creamed coconut* (you can use coconut butter if you’ve got it – but it’s the same thing)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
5 tablespoons cocoa powderalmondcoconutcups
12 mini cupcake papers Continue reading “Almond and Coconut Butter Cups – Gluten Free”

How To: Make Almond Butter – Paleo

So I’ve been looking in to paleo and gluten free food stuff and found a great flourless brownie recipe {which I shall post in the next few days} but to make it you had to have almond butter. Well, almond butter isn’t that common in Wales {unless I’m missing it anywhere?} so I’ve made my own.

What you need {this makes a jar so if you’re only using it for one recipe don’t do so much}

280g of Almonds (about 2 cups)
Unless you buy roast almonds you’re going to need to roast them first. Pop them on a tray and roast at around 350 (gask mark 4) for about 10/15 mins.

35g Coconut Flakes (1/3 cup)

1/2 teaspoon of Sea Salt
