More Nut-free Paleo Snacks: Plantain Chips

I looked like a crazy person at Trader Joe’s before the Superbowl. My boyfriend was already in line, and I was frantically reading the back of every bag of chips in an attempt to find some that I could safely eat. To my dismay, nearly all the options contained the infamous warning about being manufactured […]

Nut-free, Gluten-free BALT Wraps

These tidy snacks remind me of summer. Sigh. The BALT in these wraps stands for bacon, avocado, lettuce and turkey. I felt like that might make for a long title. These are a crafty but straightforward alternative to a club sandwich with the same amazing texture juxtaposition of slippery avocado, chewy bacon, and a blanket […]

Nut-free Snack Attack

I have a confession. Due to the intense Minnesota cold, I have terrible cabin fever coupled with some wicked SAD symptoms. Anyone else? You’d think this would cause me to cook more because I’m spending more time inside. Alas, instead I’m so bummed out that even my most favorite diversions have lacked appeal. In order […]

Nut-Free Gluten-Free Maple Shortbread Cookies

These aren’t really cookies in the classic sense of the term. By this I mean they don’t spread out and puff up when you bake them. These are shortbread cookies, and therefore they’re meant to be small and dense and enjoyed with a cup of hot tea. While not overly mapley, these are a nice […]

He may or may not have been influenced by my whining about the fact that the nutrition bar aisle […]

Nut Free Flourless Chocolate Cake

I have three up-front warnings about this recipe: You’ll notice “Paleo” is not in the recipe title. This cake is not technically Paleo because it involves sugar and butter. I have not substituted maple syrup or honey because I’m pretty sure the consistency would be all wrong. And let’s be honest, it’s all sugar anyway. […]

Paleo Coleslaw

Is the growing season delayed everywhere, or is it just in Minnesota this year? The frigid northern winter hung out for an extended stay and didn’t mosey back up to Canada where it belongs until around mid June. As a result, my garden and my CSA are only just now starting to provide enough sustenance […]

Nut Free Homemade Pesto with Zoodles

What is it with Paleo people insisting that pesto includes walnuts or almonds? I disagree. Traditional pesto, depending on where in the world you are, oftens includes pine nuts. I’m told that pine nuts aren’t technically a nut, but I’ve seen conflicting proclamations on the subject. Honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever had a pine […]

Nut Free Paleo Chocolate Cupcakes

While many Paleo cupcake recipes rely on ground nuts or almond meal for substance, these sweet muffins make up for nutlessness with double the chocolate. If you like the Nut Free Paleo Banana Zucchini Muffins, or if you just love chocolate anything (like me), you’re really going to go nuts for these. (Ha – I’m […]

There are so many recipes for paleo zucchini bread and paleo banana muffins that I decided to merge these two beautiful food spheres into one. I love opportunities to blend fruit with vegetable, and these muffins are part of a growing body of evidence that we should do this all the time. The full title […]
