Paleo Baking

Recommended Posts

Right first things first - if this is the wrong place to post this I apologise, just let me know what to do with it, thank you :)

 

Also I am not yet experienced at Paleo baking and far from it, I intend to become experienced when I return to university and have more time to bake with my girlfriend.

 

When I first shifted my diet to Paleo I found that there was little advice on baking Paleo (or at least I couldn't find any) I found a fair amount of recipes but little advice or resources explaining the differences between regular baking and Paleo (and there's a LOT).

 

So, I have gone through the internet, tried a few things out myself, researched some of the ingredients used and started to learn about it (in a very nerdy way) and decided to put together a bit of what I've learnt so far to share and try help others out. I also intend to share some recipes in the near future and maybe put together a few more resources :)

 

I don't claim any information as mine, I just put it together.

 

Hope this helps anyone, feel free to use as you want I just wanna help.

 

Any feedback, good or bad is HUGELY appreciated.

 

 

 

 

This is simply a list of common ingredients used in Paleo baking, I started it as a way to keep track of substitutions and also as a shopping list for university. If anyone sees any I have missed please let me know and I'll add it to the list, it would be greatly appreciated.

First off, I would suggest doing straight-forward paleo for the first couple months before getting too fancy. Just straight up whole foods - pick it, kill it, or dig it up. Plus plenty of herbs and spices and sauces that are carb-free and msg free. Especially if you're looking to lose weight. Get that down - life will be better.

 

Once you're there...

Here's an awesome ultra-low carb paleo recipe for crepes. We substitute them for tacos and it's awesome! (stolen from Transforming Recipes by Alex V. Navarro & Mary J. Gines - they're part of John Kiefer's Carb Nite and CBL team)

 

2 tablespoons coconut flour
2 tablespoons virgin coconut oil or
   butter, melted
2 eggs
1 teaspoon granulated Splenda or 2-3
   drops liquid Stevia
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup heavy cream

 

 

 

1 Heat small skillet over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon of
coconut oil, then melt and swirl it to coat the skillet.

 

2 In medium bowl, mix eggs, oil, sweetener, and salt.

 

3 Thoroughly mix in coconut flour, removing any lumps.

 

4 Add heavy cream and continue to mix well.

 

5 Carefully pour a quarter of the batter onto the skillet
(which should be about 5-6 inches in diameter).

 

6 Cook until batter is bubbly and cooked around edges.

 

7 Carefully flip crepe and cook other side.

 

8 Fill with your favorite fillings, then roll and serve.

This is super helpful!  Every paleo baking recipe I come across seems to use a different combination of "flours" and fats, and it was making my head spin!  I'm so glad to have a quick reference to use when I play around with my holiday baking this year.
