Good afternoon! I am back with some yummy goodness.
I’ve been trying to experiment with Paleo and Gluten Free recipes lately. So far I’ve loved everything I’ve made. There have been many runs to the store to find Coconut flour, Almond flour, Splenda brown sugar blend and many other ingredients, but that is okay!
Here are two of the latest creations
One was stolen before I could capture a picture. Hmm…:)
Blueberry Scones (recipe from Taylor Made it Paleo)
Yields: 8 scones
2 cups Almond flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup blueberries
1 egg white
1 Tbsp honey
Preheat oven to 375 degrees and grease a cookie sheet
Mix together dry ingredients in a bowl
Mix together egg whites and honey
Mix in the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients
Kneed in blueberries and roll the mixture into a dough ball
Flatten dough into one large circle
Cut into 8 small triangles
Bake for 10 minutes or until the edges begin to turn brown
Let cool and top with your favorite jam or just eat it as is!
Easy peasy right? Yep! Only took me like 20 minutes to prepare and bake the scones.

Now onto dessert!
Paleo Chocolate Almond Brownies w/ Protein! (recipe from Health Nut Julie)
3.5 scoops BioGenesis Chocolate Protein powder
2 egg whites
5 pkts Stevia
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3 Tbsp Peanut Butter
1.5 cups unsweetened Almond milk
1 tsp baking powder
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Mix ingredients together in a large bowl
The mixture should be nice and thick
Pour into a square baking pan
Bake for 25 minutes. Start checking on them at 20 minutes to see if they are done
Perfection! Sorry for the unattractive pans, they are quite old. Probably older than me?!
Any fun workouts planned for this evening?
