Latest Kick: Paleo Baking

PicMonkey Collage

My newest baking obsession is paleo baking – making desserts that adhere to the paleo diet guidelines of no grains, refined sugars, or dairy (I do use butter, like some paleo eaters).

It’s challenging, but the treats are much better for you than traditional GF desserts. Lower carb, higher protein, more whole ingredients, plenty of good fats like coconut oil…Zach still eats six cupcakes in one sitting but at least they have beets in them. For real. Two whole cups.

*You can tell this is a baking obsession because all of the photos were taken in the same poorly-lit corner of my kitchen after I spontaneously decided to bake at 10:00 PM.
