Twice Baked Stuffed Eggplant Boats

I was walking around Sprouts after a tough workout and my stomach was growling like crazy.  It is NEVER good to go to a grocery store on an empty stomach especially after working out.  I grabbed some eggplant, veggies, pasta sauce and headed out before buying the entire store.  One thing I did buy was nuts in the bulk section.  I was proud that I did not eat the whole bag in the car!

While drinking a protein shake I decided to experiment in the kitchen.  That experiment made a huge mess but was also a huge success! Below is the recipe for my Twice Baked Stuffed Eggplant Boats!  I am so excited to share this with you!

One of my favorite brands of pasta sauce that I used in the recipe is Muir Glen.  Luckily, the sauces were on sale for &1.99 at Sprouts so bought three jars!!!

Paleo Almond Flour Biscuits

Anyone that is very close to me knows that I am a huge sucker for biscuits! When it comes to weekend brunch, biscuits is all I want to eat!  My stomach is not in agreement with me so I have to limit myself and come up with alternatives.  The recipe below is one that I have experimented with for a bit.  I have a few others but those need some fixing…

In the recipe I used Carrington Farms coconut oil and Honeyville blanched almond flour.  Both were purchased at Costco.

These guilt free biscuits are delicious! They do not rise as much as regular flour biscuits, are not as flaky and are a bit dense.  One is a perfect serving for someone like me!

Try the recipe and let me know what you think! Please share, comment and follow my blog.

Cheers!

Super Easy Paleo Pancakes!

Ingredients:

1 cup milk (I use almond but you can use any paleo milk.)

5 eggs

2 tablespoons coconut oil (I buy mine in bulk at Costco.)

2 tablespoons honey

½ teaspoon of vanilla extract

1/4 cup almond flour (I buy mine in bulk at Costco.)

1/2 cup coconut flour (I use a very affordable one from Trader Joe’s.)

1/2 cup tapioca flour or arrowroot (I use Bob’s Red Mill.)

3/4 teaspoon baking soda

1 tablespoon flaxseed

  • Quickly put all ingredients in a blender on high until creamy. Do not let the ingredients sit too long or else it will cake up.
  • Use coconut oil or coconut spray on a pan. Pour the batter on a pan and cook evenly on both sides.

Feel free to add nuts or your favorite fruit.

You can make the whole batch and freeze the rest separating the pancakes with parchment paper.

Enjoy!

Cheers,
