Perfect Paleo Pancakes.

I’ve tried many a pancake recipe, and had many a pancake fail. In the midst of this journey, I tried cooking pancakes for house guests one time, and as I offered them, I was given a far too honest response… “Ah no thanks, they’re burnt.” Epic fail. So even more determined to get a good recipe to use frequently, I soldiered on, and have now perfected it.  (more…)

Paleo Chocolate Caramel Slice

Every now and then you really achieve something great in your life, this is one of those moments. It doesn’t need much preamble, you just need to eat it. I was inspired by this caramel recipe, but didn’t really want to use as much honey. I feel like mine turned out quite sweet enough. The base was an adaptation of the base from my Paleo Lemon Slice. So without further ado…

Paleo Lemon Slice

I’ve been a little sporadic with posting, I probably started my last post with something along the lines of “Gee its been a while..” and here I am again…

It has been christmas and new year, which means it’s a little bit difficult to stick to eating paleo recipes. But I’m trying pretty hard right now, so to keep me motivated, I’ll share some with you and hopefully get some feedback! (more…)

Homemade Sesame & Herb Crackers

If there is just one obsession I have, it’s making efficient use of resources and time. But there’s not just one, I have several obsessions. Some more of my current ones include my daughters cute feet, measuring people’s bathrooms and kitchens, and creating amazing healthy recipes. This recipe comes from the first obsession though. It will double as a pastry base or pizza base, and in fact I did double this and make another thing that will blow your socks off. Apple Custard Pie! Recipe to come for that, which used the leftover egg yolks, created two items of health and deliciousness to cook at once, and all Paleo. Because, not only is it a hip thing to do, it will make you feel amazing.

Sesame & Herb Crackers

20130923-171214.jpg

1 1/2 c almond meal
1/2 c LSA (ground up mixture of linseed, sunflower seed & almond)
1 egg white
1 tsp water
1 tsp olive oil
Pinch of Himalayan salt
1/3 c sesame seeds
Dried herbs to your liking

Put all dry ingredients in a bowl and whisk together wet ingredients. Add wet to dry and mix together until you get a dough like consistency. Press it altogether into a ball, and place between 2 sheets of baking paper. Roll the dough out thinly, (about 3mm). Peel off the top layer of baking paper. You could cut shapes with cookie cutters or just cut into rectangles. Place on an oven tray and cook for about 10-12 mins. Keep an eye on them, you want them just brown and crunchy.

Drizzle with a tiny bit of olive oil and a sprinkle of salt and keep them in an airtight container.

A tasty savory treat, go really good with cheese, meat and my amazing Spicy Onion Pickle. Or just some raw veges and avocado… Anything you can dream up. Enjoy!

NB So you can double the first 6 ingredients on this list. That will give you enough for crackers, and a base for apple pie, or a pizza base, or a pumpkin pie. Split the mixture and then add the bits for crackers in one bowl, and a bit of sweetener for the other half in the other bowl, if you’re going to make a sweet pie. I will post recipes for that soon, in the meantime, experiment away!
