paleo cinnamon blueberry pancakes

DSC_0888i recreated these cinnamon blueberry pancakes from a pancake recipe that my mom made for us growing up.  the cinnamon in the pancake makes it so warm on top of being an ultra soft + fluffy pancake, & the blueberries heat up while cooking and are bursting by the time you eat the pancakes!!

lemon blueberry loaf

dsc_0783.jpgohhhhh my goodness.  the lemon blueberry combination.  i almost have NO words for the heaven that it is… but i’ll try and give you an idea of how legit incredible this bread is.  i first thought of this idea becuase i wanted to make something that has a more vibrant flavor than the typical breads — banana, zucchini, pumpkin.  those are all delish in a warm + comforting way, and i wanted this new bread to be brighter & lighter.  i seriously chose this flavor combination as my effort to WILL spring into action.  enter: LEMON.

paleo sweet vanilla bread

DSC_0598OKAY. it’s here!! this will be the first bread recipe that i’ve tested & successfully created for my blog!  i’ve been wanting to make something like a banana bread, but without the bananas; which would make it just bread. but i didn’t want to make just bread!  [shouts to @aeengels12 for the inspiration for a sweet potato based bread – this one’s for yaaa.]  i wanted the flavor to be neutral in terms of not having fruit or cinnamon or any nut butter, & the reason for that was because i wanted to be able to put whatever toppings on it without clashing or overpowering any flavs!

one of the main reasons i wanted it to be neutral was becuase i recently discovered a new type of jam [just fruit preserves, no sugar] & immediately knew i needed a base for a THROWBACK CONCEPT.  i used to eat this legitimately every single day for lunch in high school….can you guess? PEANUT BUTTER & JELLY, ANYONE?  except that peanut butter isn’t paleo & jelly is sugar-filled, SO… now that i’ve discovered that all other nut butters are heavenly in their own regard and this new raspberry fruit spread from [@TRADERJOES], i’m determined to bring back PB&J.

i tested it with my family + a few others [@chelsboyle, @jozlow], & after batch 2 — which turned out to be just what i was hoping to create — it’s ready for you!

paleo chocolate chip cookies

DSC_0556if you were looking for the most classic chocolate chip cookie made paleo, you’ve found them. there’s a science to making cookie dough, where you first cream the ‘butter’ or [sub] with the sugar, then add the other wet ingredients [egg, vanilla], before combining with the mixed dry ingredients.  let’s not forget the important last step, the stirring of the chocolate chips into the batter. YES.

coconut flour paleo pancakes

DSC_0376i’ve been really wanting pancakes lately and decided that sunday was the day.  my workout took all my energy (it’s ok, worth it) & i decided pancakes would refuel me appropriately, as long as they were made with the right, clean ingredients.  i didn’t honestly think they were going to turn out & they JUST DID.  they were so fluffy, so cakey, & just sweet enough [sweetened with a honey squeeze + some mashed banana].
