Crazy About Nuts
Growing up, I think my dad was the only one in the family that enjoyed eating nuts. I wasn’t the biggest fan. However, I have learned to love all kinds of nuts and make some great dishes with them as well. We are told to eat them in moderation, so don’t go overboard. I have to remind myself of that- they can get addicting.
Sweet Paleo Tooth
Eating a Paleo lifestyle means you have to sometimes get creative with your food in order to feel satisfied. I have found the best treat that helps me when I am craving sweets. It’s AMAZING!!! The nut that the recipe calls for is Cashew, but I have experimented with all kinds of different nuts and flavors, so feel free to mix it up when trying out the recipe. It was meant to be a scone, but I like to make them into muffins as well. I also try to limit the amount of honey/agave/maple syrup.
1 ½ cups Cashews
¼ cup Arrowroot (I use cornstarch)
Pinch of Salt
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 cup Fresh Blueberries
¼ cup Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
3 Tbl Maple Syrup (I use honey or Agave)
2 tsp Vanilla Extract
Preheat oven to 350 F & line a 9” metal pan with parchment paper.
Blend the cashews in a food processor until powdered.
Whisk all the dry ingredients together then stir in the blueberries.
Whisk the wet ingredients together then stir into the dry.
Pour into the baking pan and bake at 350 F for 30 minutes.
Let cool for at least 10 minutes, slice, and enjoy!
Time: 10 min prep | Bake: 30 minutes
