So I have this comparative study for a school project and it requires the nutritional facts of both coconut and wheat flour. My dilemma is where can I source a gram per gram comparison of these two flours. Everywhere I look, one is always heavier... (more)
Are there substitutes for rice flour? I have a snickerdoodles recipe that includes 2 cups rice flour ?? cup ground flax meal 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon xanthan gum
I know that it's paleo to use almond or coconut flour instead of regular wheat flour for baking. But in my region one cannot easily find those paleo types of flours and making flour of raw almonds or even coconuts is a crazy and expensive idea... (more)
What delicious treat can I bake for non paleo brunch guests that will make them say "damn, that paleo stuff is tasty!"? I don't do much baking (sex with your clothes on, blah blah) and my last attempt (muffins from paleomg) was flat out gross. ... (more)
I have a cookie recipe that calls for lard as the fat. It's a shortbread-style cookie. I'm still fairly new at paleo, so my question my or may not have an obvious answer. Instead of going out and purchasing lard or rendering my own from pork... (more)

I'm trying to bake cookies using the most natural ingredients possible. The recipe that I developed, and tested, this morning is as follows: 12 oz. almonds (blended) 8 oz. dates (blended) 2 eggs 1 half of an avocado 1... (more)
My mom's birthday is this weekend and I was planning on baking a cake as my gift to her, and I was planning on baking a red velvet cake. Naturally, red velvet cake is not paleo at all, so I did a search on and found quite a handful of paleo/gluten... (more)
Hey guys a bit of an unusual question for you!! I really wana make blueberry muffins but have had 3 failed attempts! They will NOT bloody rise lol... This is the recipe's ingredients: 1 cup almond flour ??? tsp baking soda pinch of salt 2 tbs... (more)
I found a recipe for avacado brownies on another site using raw honey, but your site mentions not heating the honey. These brownies are not raw, they're baked. Would this be problematic? My daughter has PCOS and is really biting the bullet at... (more)
What kind of baking sheet do you use? I had a moderately priced one I got from a local mega-mart, but whatever the coating on it was started to chip off. I'm not worried about price, but everything I'm seeing on Amazon I can't tell what kind of... (more)
Where do you buy coconut oil? I found a recipe for Paleo cookies and it calls for coconut oil. However, I am unsure where to purchase it. When I was purchasing Almond Meal/Flour the local Super Target carried it but Cub Foods did not. I did... (more)
So, I started using baking soda for all of my cleaning, it's great stuff!! I even use it instead of shampoo. Now my drains are clogged with it, we had to dig the septic system up twice to unclog it, and it is clearly baking soda. Does anyone... (more)
I for some reason cannot comment on the above, which I upvoted... but yup pour vinegar down there doesn't have to be much, OR what I usually do as I never seem to have vinegar on hand, is a kettle full of boiling water. That'll clear it out.
I want to surprise my sweetie with paleo cupcakes- preferably vanilla and i can use red food coloring (is food coloring paleo!??) and a frosting recipe, or any alternative ideas-? thanks!
Food coloring is absolutely not paleo. Heck, gluten free cupcakes, no matter the ingredients, are effectively non-paleo, faileo treats. But you know what? Who cares?! If it really is a every-great-once-in-a-while treat (weekly for some, monthly or... (more)
So I stopped using shampoo and soap. It has been a week and a half, and I have used baking soda and ACV every 3 days or so (I'm male with medium length, ultra fine hair) to deal with the intense greasy feeling in my hair. That 3rd day I wouldn't... (more)
I want to make my brother pumpkin pie and apple pie, but he has a severe nut allergy. I've made him paleo muffins with coconut flour before that have turned out well but I cannot seem to get a good pie crust using just coconut flour. Does anyone... (more)
I learned of paleo after joining Commonwealth Crossfit. It was a 30 day challenge. At first it was grueling but after a week I started feeling great. I decided that this was for me. As a novice, I avoided baking because I wasn't sure what or how... (more)
I saw in a recent post someone mentioned using starches in place of actual flours. Nut flours have phytic acid and wheat is out of the question. Coconut is apparently also a nut with phytic acid in the flour! So What do I bake with? If I want to... (more)
Yes, I know baking ain't paleo, but anyway... What's your favourite paleo brownie recipe that gives you moist, fudgy, dense, chocolatey brownies? I just tried one on health-bent, but wasn't wowed by the results...
I made some almond milk awhile back (yes, you can milk an almond) and used the leftover dried meal to make some flourless brownies. They were very rich and almost fudge-like in texture. I also used sunflower-seed butter instead of peanut butter... (more)
So, I fancy spicing up my egg-and-bananas diet with some real cooking, but I'm on a pretty tight budget. Which is better for cooking with (I'm also trying to be somewhat calorie concious), flaxseed or almond meal?
Could you get sweet potato flour instead? They are less inflammatory and not too expensive or coconut flour...almonds just have such a high omega-6 ratio. I think flaxseed should be minimized in intake as well.
I just made Katie Hudgen's paleo-friendly clafouti (as highlighted on Mark's Daily Apple, but I made it with banana and bacon) and I am pretty shocked that coconut milk, butter, and eggs can make a pastry like that. It was delicious, has good... (more)
I'm new to the Paleo diet and I'm getting ready to bake blueberry muffins! I have everything except for the Arrowroot flour... Can I ommit it and use something else? Or add more of something else? Please help... Thanks! Paleo newbie ;) (more)
Just discovering using the convection oven setting on my oven. I can cook a lot more food and stack it up on multiple trays and it cooks even about 10-20% faster! So far I made sweet potatoes and kale chips using the convection oven... (more)
