Best Chocolate Chip Cookie for me – Paleo friendly

Paleo chocolate chip cookie did not last long. We ate it in a matter of the hour between Mark and I.

Starting a new job, moving to a new home and then renovating our house had definitely taken a toil on our healthy eating. Not to say we are currently expecting our first baby, things have gotten a little more interesting because I am constantly feeling tired and whenever I have the opportunity, I will try to get some nap time.

Dangerous days when you cannot bake – my muffin pans were all packed and I had not unpacked them until today. As a result, we had been getting getting conventional cakes / treats while our kitchen was being renovated. They taste great while eating and yet we always feel it an hour later and definitely the next day.

Finally unpacked my pans and on a overcast Sunday in Seattle, baked my first batch of fall paleo chocolate chip muffins. Absolutely smelling good now as the aroma fills the house. This will get me going as I prepare the rest of the meals for this week. By the way, there is a little secret in this recipe, it contains pumpkin and is actually somewhat healthy(or at least I self rationalized). 🙂 I am not telling!

Some people love savory desserts, while others love sweeter ones. Mark and I always debate about what to make when we are baking desserts and generally I will go with the chocolate because that always hits the craving monster in the face and for me, I really can go either way. I grew up eating fruits for desserts, so sweet  baked desserts are really nice to have.

Friday is movie night in our house. Our routine is generally eating leftovers and watching a movie on Friday. We do our groceries on Saturday and deplete our munchies from Monday through Thursday. So when Friday comes into the picture, we feel that we need to stop into the supermarket for a run. This is especially since Mark needs desserts.

Today (a Friday) is no different …

Paleo Pancakes for Dinner!

Pancakes are really simple and good tasting breakfast, lunch and dinner food 🙂 but since we have gone paleo, we have not been able to find a good substitute. Almond meal pancakes just do not taste the same. In fact, I consider them gritty and difficult to eat.
