Paleo Pumpkin Pancakes

These delicious pumpkin pancakes are Paleo, gluten free, and “just as good as regular pumpkin pancakes,” report my two teenage testers (and I agree). The batter is basically pumpkin, eggs and spices – the coconut flour is added purely as a thickener and you cannot taste it in the cooked pancakes. I don’t sweeten the batter at all, so I serve these pumpkin pancakes with maple syrup – a tablespoon per serving is plenty. Click for the recipe

sesame noodles

I already told you that I love shirataki noodles and feel that when prepared correctly, they provide a wonderful, low-carb, gluten-free alternative to noodles and pasta. I normally prepare them by boiling and dry-roasting and then simply toss with butter, garlic and Parmesan. But today I decided to try using them in a sesame noodles recipe.

Success! These sesame noodles are delicious, flavorful, super-filling, and healthy! No carb overload, and some great fiber for your good tummy bugs to work with. Click for the recipe

Paleo Barbecue Sauce

This super easy Paleo barbecue sauce is made with just a few simple ingredients and tastes just as good as sugar-laden store bought barbecue sauce. I used it last night with my pulled chicken recipe and it was amazing: very flavorful, with just the right balance of tangy and sweet. Click for the recipe

Gluten Free Flatbread

A delicious grilled cheese sandwich, made with gluten free flatbread. The flatbread is actually savory pancakes, made with coconut flour. So this is not exactly bread in terms of taste and texture, but still tasty and melty and highly pleasurable. Click for the recipe

Pumpkin Waffles

Oh, the wonderful smell that fills your kitchen when you cook these pumpkin waffles! And they taste wonderful too – crisp on the outside, tender on the inside, subtly sweet, with a distinct-but-not-overwhelming pumpkin and cinnamon flavor. I don’t sweeten the batter at all, so plan on serving these pumpkin waffles with maple syrup – a tablespoon per waffle is plenty. Click for the recipe

Paleo Breakfast Bread

This paleo breakfast bread is packed with healthy fats and protein, yet it has the taste and texture of honey cake. I had my doubts when I saw the ingredients list, but magically, the ingredients did transform into a delicious bread with a tender crumb and a pleasant honey flavor.

If you celebrate the Jewish New Year, this Paleo breakfast bread is the perfect gluten-free alternative to the traditional honey cake. Click for the recipe

baked meatballs

These baked meatballs are perfect for weeknight dinners. They are very easy to make and are ready in less than 30 minutes. They are definitely spicy, so if you’re not a fan of spicy foods, use just 1/8 teaspoon cayenne. Click for the recipe
