While I don’t subscribe to eating a particular diet, due to a lot of my own food intolerances (and my constant quest for tasty food), I love finding recipes that can hit the spot when I have a craving, or that can come in handy when I have friends over for dinner.
Since coming back from my honeymoon in Bali, I’ve had cravings for cake. Specifically, coffee cake. For days it kept coming into my mind.
The funny thing is, in America, “coffee cake” is basically a tea cake, meaning all the recipes I found didn’t actually have coffee in them. I did however find this delicious recipe, which I have since replicated a few times (including once with coffee, although it wasn’t exactly strong enough to taste much like coffee, it was still pretty dang delicious – pictured below).
Please note that I’m not much of a baker, so experimenting with treats like this is a big step for me.
Paleo baking is a great option because not only are the recipes low in sugar and bloody delicious, they are usually high in protein, vitamins and minerals, with really good quality fats to boot. They’re a great option to snack on and include in any meal prep too.
Here’s a few other recipes that have my tick of approval (I’m especially keen for the dinner rolls 😉 :
- This lovely looking paleo sandwich loaf https://livinghealthywithchocolate.com/desserts/paleo-bread-recipe-1739/
- These adorable and fluffy looking dinner rolls https://www.healthstartsinthekitchen.com/2013/11/17/2817/
- Yummy pumpkin spice muffins https://glutenfreehomemaker.com/paleo-pumpkin-muffins/
So next time you’re looking to bake up a treat, or even have some fluffy bread with your pumpkin soup this winter, why not try one of the amazingly creative paleo recipes that are around?
You might just be surprised at how simple and tasty they are.
