What's the most convincing neolithic analogue recipe you know of?

This question is not really one for the purists and more for the fun of it. What's the absolutely most convincing neolithic analogue - that is, "paleo fettucine", "paleo blueberry muffins", etc. - that you know of? You could publish your own recipe in your answer, or summarize and link to the recipe on someone else's site/blog, etc.

Obviously there's some wide berth here since we're already dealing in what many would classify as paleo junk foods, but ideally posted recipes would be grain-free, sugar-free, industrial-oils-free.

This is a great chance to highlight the handiwork of any of the hundreds of paleo foodie bloggers you know.

Remember, this question is asking for convincing and authentic-tasting, not "good for what it is" or "tastes like a bland health food version of...". When prepared the recipe should be able to completely fool a nonpaleo.

It is super simple, it's how I like my recipes, 5 ingredients or less! I usually buy the Trader Joes stuff because it's the cheapest I have found it and I think all the oil really helps, the no-stir stuff doesn't work as well.

My bad. I added it in an edit. They are super moist and really wonderful and I'm not a huge fan of pumpkin.

Pumpkin Almond Butter Brownies

* 2 cups Almond Butter
* 1 1/2 cups Canned Pumpkin
* 2 egg
* 2/3 cup Honey
* 2 tsp Baking Soda

Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Mix well. Pour into a greased 9 x 13 pan. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

I never had pumpkin brownie before these, but they taste delicious and bad for you, which equals neolithic in my opinion. I served them to all my non-Paleo friends and family and they all just love them.

The first time I made these cookies, I kinda wanted to cry because they were so good! I do honey instead of agave and clarified butter for the grapeseed oil. http://www.elanaspantry.com/dairy-free-gluten-free-chocolate-chip-cookies/

Another Food Lover's recipe:

Their carrot cake is in my opinion the BEST carrot cake I have ever had!

I'll go ahead and kick it off: I love The Food Lovers' Primal Palate's Dark Chocolate Coconut Cake. It is a perfect stand in for traditional birthday cake. I've served it to crowds without anybody (except those who already know how I eat) suspecting.

Yum!

Oh man. I'm salivating thinking about my answer....basically anything from elanaspantry.com is great, but we love her silver dollar pancakes.

3 large eggs

1 tablespoon water

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

2 tablespoons agave nectar

1 ?? cups blanched almond flour

?? teaspoon celtic sea salt

?? teaspoon baking soda

grapeseed oil, for cooking

1.In a large bowl whisk together eggs, water, vanilla and agave

2.Add almond flour, salt and baking soda and mix until thoroughly combined 3.Heat grapeseed oil on skillet over medium low to medium heat

4.Scoop 1 heaping tablespoon of batter at a time onto the skillet

5.Pancakes will form little bubbles, when bubbles open, flip pancakes over and cook other side

6.Remove from heat to a plate

7.Repeat process with remaining batter, add more oil to skillet as needed

I love them with blueberries or honey on top.
