I've been on a quest for yummy treats with a Paleo angle and have found a couple I thought I would share.
Spiced Carrot Cake: This is so good! I don't know if Jason liked it as much, but I thought it was just sweet enough without being too cloying. I'm not even a big carrot cake fan, but I liked this recipe a lot. I tried making the coconut cream too, but it didn't work for some reason. It didn't come together nicely like in the recipe.
Also, I learned the hard way that a really good way to clog the kitchen sink is to pour the failed coconut cream down the drain. Coconut oil clogs pipes. And good. Oops.
Anyway, I made a little glaze out of powdered sugar and water. Not paleo with the powdered sugar, but it was a light glaze. Maybe I could experiment next time with maple syrup-sweetened whipped cream...
Apple Crisp: We got a bunch of apples in our winter farm share, but they were obviously from last fall's harvest because they were a little mealy. Good for baking, though! This was great AND it even had a nice crunchy crust. I used maple syrup instead of the agave nectar, but I think honey might have been even better for getting a crunchy crust.
And in a not-so-sweet vein, last night I made a crock pot turkey breast for dinner. This is the third time I've made it, and it's fabulous! I don't remove the skin and after it's done cooking, I bake it in the oven at 350 for 20-30 minutes, or until the skin browns. So. Good.
