Almond Butter Cups
  • Complexity: medium

Almond Butter Cups

I am addicted to almond butter. It seems that most of my new recipes have almond butter and now I thought chocolate and almond butter! How about Almond Butter Cups and it’s a Paleo Recipe.. Sounds good to me…

I made them in a mini-cupcake tin so they were the perfect bite size treat. I sprinkled some organic unsweetened coconut on some of the before the chocolate hardened!

 

Almond Flour
  • Complexity: medium

Almond Flour

I use almond flour with many of my recipes but it is very costly. I want to experiment with a few inspirations for the holidays therefore decided to make my own almond flour. I had a huge bag that I purchased a while ago to make a nut crunch. I used my food processor but I bet you can do the same with a coffee grinder as well. My advice would be to pulse it because I fear if you over blend you will end up with almond butter.

It came out perfect so now off to cooking land!!

Chocolate Almond Torte

Chocolate Almond Torte

Making a torte is one of my favorites.  The name sounds fancy and they look so beautiful on a cake stand.  I love the combination of chocolate and almonds in this torte, served with a glass of red wine sitting by the fire.  The perfect sweet ending!

Paleo Almond Angel Food Cake

I love egg whites and always have a 16 ounce container in the refrigerator.  For some reason I had 2 new ones and decided to make an angel food cake and serve with a Creme Anglaise.  

This turned out to be a very enjoyable and delicate dessert for my "bring a friend for dinner night".

Paleo Chocolate and Almond Lava Cakes

I have a new love!  When I was doing my weekly shopping at Shop Rite I found Wild Friends Vanilla Expresso Almond Butter and decided to give it a try!  The espresso got me! 

I first put it in my mid-afternoon smoothie.  My granddaughter loves it in her hot cocoa and I decided to make this dessert for my husband's birthday.  I don't really have a sweet tooth (and never had) but my husband loves lava cakes.  We went to a friend's house and I brought these in my Quattro Stagioni Jars and what a hit!  Just adding that tablespoon of this amazing almond butter made this dessert a great birthday cake!

I served with coconut ice cream and as it melted down the lava cake there were lots of smiles!

Give this Paleo dessert a try!

 

 

 

Paleo Lemon Almond Waffle

Paleo Lemon Almond Waffle

I love making waffles or pancakes on Sundays.  I have been enjoying my almond extract and decided to make these!
 
I preheated my oven to about 175 degrees F to keep each waffle warm until I was done making the entire batch and ready to serve.  
 
These are also great for freezing and enjoying during the week.  Go ahead and make a waffle BLT!
