chocolate sunflower butter cups!

I was literally obsessed with peanut butter cups when I was little. Here's some homemade cups but paleo! Ingredients - cup raw honey to taste 1 cup sunflower seed butter 2 teaspoons vanilla 1 tablespoon organic butter or ghee (if you use ghee, add a pinch of salt) 11 ounces of dark chocolate (I used 10 ounces of 65 percent and added about 1 ounce of 100 percent cocoa) Directions: Double boil the chocolate with the butter. Take spoonfuls of chocolate and put into silicone muffin cups. While the chocolate is still warm and mobile, hold up and tilt each cup while rotating a full 360 degrees, to lightly coat the sides about halfway up. Place in freezer to set. Mix honey, sunflower seed butter, and vanilla until well-blended. Roll into balls and flatten to make little disks. Place disks into cups, cover with chocolate, and put in the freezer again to set. Once set, about 10-15 minutes, pop out of the silicone, place candies into cute paper cups and enjoy!

pumpkin coffee creamer

So I stopped drinking coffee for a few months because of all the mystery ingredients that are in coffee mate (the flavors I liked anyways) so my wonderful mother who also eats a paleo diet ran across this recipe, modified it a bit then made it. This recipe is so yummy you will have the urge to put a straw in it and drink it plain. Sooo delicious!!! 2 cups pasture raised heavy cream (full) ½-3/4 c canned pumpkin 4 tsp pumpkin pie spice 2 tsp cinnamon 2 Tbs vanilla 2 Tbs maple syrup Blend well, add to coffee Raw pasture raised heavy cream is paleo. If your not into dairy of any kind then try this recipe with mimic cream (nut cream) or coconut cream! Its absolutely delicious!!

Fall is in the air...

One of the things I use to really look forward to about fall was Starbucks pumpkin spice latte... Yummmm but after starting eating the Paleo way I realized I can't drink that yumminess anymore! Noooooo but I created a Paleo version. Obviously doesn't taste exactly the same but its pretty damn good! Especially with a pumpkin cupcake, donut or apple spice cake! 1 shot of espresso 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice 1 1/2 tablespoons coconut sugar 2 tablespoons pumpkin puree 1 cup hot almond milk Mix all ingredients together and pour into your favorite coffee cup and enjoy the taste of fall! pal
