Paleo Newbie’s Sweet Potato Waffle Recipe is perfect just the way it is and it definitely made my weekend this past weekend.

Recipe: Paleo Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread

I am a table leader for the membership class at church for 9 weeks which has given me a great opportunity to try some new recipes. There are a couple people at my table that are gluten-free and dairy-free which makes paleo recipes intising.

After pinterest-ing for much longer than is healthy, I decided to try this recipe. It was really good! I didn’t have any leftovers after class so I’m assuming everyone else thinks it’s pretty good too. I actually followed the recipe for this one (probably because it’s measure, combine, and dump) with my cooking time being closer to 30 minutes. Enjoy!

Almond Shortbread Cookies

CrossFit Matters had a fall paleo BBQ/family hangout at the box Friday night. We all signed up to bring food items on facebook. I was at work and quickly trying to decide what I was going to bring when I notice that no one had signed up for dessert. I figured I had lucked out so I signed up for it – then I read all of the instructions. No dairy, no gluten, no grain (including corn), no sugar (artificial/processed but not at all is preferred), no eggs, no legums (soy and peanuts). How in the world do you make dessert without all of those things?!?

I eat a gluten-free diet and have no dairy issues but still stay away from cow’s milk (I like almond milk) but this was going to be a challenge – no wonder no one else had signed up for dessert! After several hours of internet scouring, I ran across this recipe and I am so happy that I did! It’s quick and easy and was a huge hit at the party! There were zero cookies left to take home (much to my roomate’s disappointment).

Recipe Adaptations: I used honey for my sweetener and vanilla for the extract but I left out the salt, food coloring, and the liquid stevia. Although I attempted the pinwheel, I found that it used too much dough for the quantities I was trying to achieve so I just rolled them out and used a couple of cookie cutters. My cook time was about 9 minutes.

Tip: the thicker cookies taste more like shortbread (which is what I was going for) 🙂

Recipe: Paleo Pancakes

1 banana

2 eggs

Blend and make pancakes.

That’s it! They taste great. I would probably recommend adding cinnamon or honey if you don’t like the taste of bananas. I just drowned them in syrup and butter (defeats the paleo part I know but I eat paleo to limit the carbs because my body doesn’t process them very well).
