Layered Peppermint Patties Recipe [Paleo, Keto]

Louise Hendon | May 18

These Paleo and Keto peppermint patties are perfect for parties or for storing in your fridge as mini treats. Even though they were barely sweetened, they taste fantastic, and the black and white layers really stand out and make them look cute and delicious.

Next time you’re going to a party and want to bring some desserts to impress the guests with, try taking these gorgeous layered peppermint patties – you’ll feel like a skilled chef rather than a home cook with these!

If you don’t like using stevia, then just add in a 1-2 tablespoons of raw honey instead. Of course, if you’re sticking to a ketogenic diet then you’ll need to take those extra grams of carbs into account.

Almond Butter Fudge Recipe [Paleo, Keto, Sugar-Free, Dairy-Free]

Louise Hendon | May 12

If you’re diabetic or on a ketogenic diet, then it can be tough to find desserts to eat. That’s where this delicious almond butter fudge recipe comes in. It’s not only Paleo, but also Ketogenic (low carb and diabetic-friendly).

This fudge is sweetened with stevia, but you can omit sweeteners if you want or use other sweeteners of your choice. We think stevia is generally the best sugar-free option, but check that your stevia is pure and doesn’t contain other ingredients. If you’re not trying to stay sugar-free, then coconut sugar or maple syrup are good options for sweetening this fudge recipe.

Paleo After-Workout Peach Banana Protein Shake Recipe

Louise Hendon | April 8

I often forget just how refreshing and delicious peaches are, and they are fantastic in smoothies like this one. The avocado and nuts in this recipe also add in more fat to slow the absorption of the sugars. And if you want to add in some extra protein after your workout, choose a whey protein powder that doesn’t have added ingredients like this one.

Paleo Banana Nut Muffins Recipe [Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free]

Louise Hendon | March 28

“Everybody loves banana nut muffins.”

LOL – that’s what Jeremy said when I asked him what he liked about them. So, with that, how could you fail to enjoy this healthier version that’s made with delicious spices and sweetened with a tad of raw honey as well as the bananas.

Enjoy these Paleo banana nut muffins warm for a soft muffin texture with a nutty crunch. Personally, I like them with a cup of black tea for an afternoon snack.

High Protein Shake Recipe with Raw Eggs, Blueberry, Avocado, and Green Tea [Paleo, Dairy-Free]

Louise Hendon | March 25

I know some of you are into CrossFit, HIIT, Spartan racing, weight-lifting, and various other intense forms of exercise – so I came up with this raw egg shake especially for you – it’s packed with protein, fat, a small amount of carbohydrates, and a dash of caffeine (which you can omit if you prefer).

As always, when making anything with raw eggs, be careful of food safety – I would wash the egg shells and then wash my hands after cracking the eggs. I would also make sure to use very fresh eggs, and I wouldn’t use any cracked or dirty eggs. I know I’m a bit of a freak when it comes to food safety, but I really hate food poisoning so that little bit of extra effort seems worth it to me.

Sugar-Free Chocolate Biscotti Recipe [Paleo, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free]

Louise Hendon | March 17

This is another recipe that my dad especially enjoys. It’s lightly sweetened with stevia and has a great flavor to it with the unsweetened cacao powder and unsweetened shredded coconut. When it first comes out of the oven, it’s pretty soft still, but you can let it dry out for longer by leaving it in the oven at a very low temperature or just by sitting it out. Or don’t bother waiting and just enjoy immediately.

There’s also some chia seeds in this recipe to help everything gel together better.

Persimmon Dessert Cups Stuffed with Butternut Squash [Paleo, AIP, GF]

Louise Hendon | March 4

The Forgotten Fruit

Persimmons are one of those fruits that always fascinate people and yet scare them at the same time. Persimmons are pretty but “unknown” and therefore “unapproachable.” I’m going to change that!

I was lucky enough to have been introduced to the wonders of the persimmon fruit at an early age, but for most of my life, I was confused by when it was ripe, why they came in different shapes, and how best to eat them.

Then, a couple months ago, I was in my mother’s kitchen, which was full of all the fresh produce that she’d grown in her garden this year. And among all that fresh produce were more than a few persimmons.

I decided, despite my uncertainty, that I just had to do something awesome with the baskets of fruit sitting in the kitchen, including all those persimmons! I stared at them for a while, Googled to see what other people had done, and then created this recipe, which turned out to be way more delicious and much easier than I anticipated.

fuyu persimmon

Hachi-WHAT???

Most of the confusion and fear about persimmons stems (no pun intended) from the fact there are 2 main types of persimmons: fuyu and hachiya. Actually, there are many more varieties, but those are the two types you’ll find in your grocery store.

And because nature really likes to play tricks on us, fuyu and hachiya persimmons look fairly similar (to the uninitiated like me), but they are actually very different in texture and in determining ripeness.

Vanilla Pound Cake Recipe [Paleo, Gluten-Free]

Louise Hendon | February 29

This pound cake never ceases to WOW. It’s just so much like real pound cake.

The secret ingredient is a tiny amount of whey protein powder, which is just one of the proteins purified from milk. Most concerns with whey protein powder stem from the fact that many brands are packed with artificial sweeteners, colors, and flavors, so I suggest buying a pure one like this one from Amazon.

Paleo Bacon Lemon Thyme Breakfast Muffins Recipe [Keto, Low Carb]

Louise Hendon | February 24

These make for a fantastic savory Paleo breakfast. And what’s even better is you can make these muffins in advance and heat one or two up in the morning as a quick meal. Or take them with you as a snack.

I used lemon thyme as the herb in this Paleo breakfast muffin recipe, but you can switch that with another herb of your choice – rosemary, Italian seasoning, chili pepper flakes could all work well.

This breakfast muffin recipe is also ketogenic-friendly and low carb, so it’s a great way to start your day.

Egg Custard Tarts Recipe [Paleo, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free]

Louise Hendon | February 10

I was shocked many years ago when I visited China and found that KFC was famous there for their egg tarts! (I have to admit that I tried them, and they were really really good.) So, here’s my Paleo version of the egg custard tart with an almond crust and coconut egg custard. The almond crust makes it a bit crumbly and this version is not as sweet as the traditional ones.

Raw Egg Protein Smoothie Bowl Recipe [Paleo, Dairy-Free, High-Protein]

Louise Hendon | February 3

If you’re a fan of smoothies, but not a fan of eating meat, then this is a great recipe for getting more protein into your diet. The raw egg makes the smoothie super creamy (it’s as if you added in cream!).

The idea for this recipe came to me after seeing Mark’s Primal Egg Coffee which uses raw egg yolks to make coffee creamy and nutritious.

Note: Always make sure your eggs are fresh!
