Paleo Pumpkin TreatsThursday, October 04, 2012
It's fall. The leaves are changing colors, I broke out the puffy vest, and I'd like a pumpkin flavored treat. One might assume this wouldn't be possible on a paleo diet (no grains, sugar, or dairy) but that isn't the case. Just yesterday I baked these delicious paleo pumpkin cookies. What makes them paleo? Almond flour, coconut oil, banana, and spices. Nothing processed. No added sugar. I've finally started a paleo board on Pinterest and look forward to trying a few more treats and recipes this fall.
Avoid: processed food, sugar, dairy, grains (flour, quinoa etc), legumes (beans, nuts, soy), alcohol
Enjoy: meat, seafood, nuts, seeds, healthy fat (coconut oil, avocado oil etc), veggies, fruit
wheat flour–coconut or almond flour
peanut butter–almond butter or sun butter
cow's milk–almond or coconut milk
the list goes on.
