Paleo Lemon Bars


I love anything Lemon!! These are pretty tasty! I really should have doubled the recipe, my family and I had them gone in about 2 minutes!! Seriously!

I just used this recipe as listed and used an 8x8 square baking dish.  If you doubled it use a 9x13 dish. 

Ingredients:
CRUST
 -1 1/2 cups blanched almond flour (I only had about 1 cup left of store bought almond flour, so I quickly ground up some raw almonds in my food processor to make some more almond flour.  It isn't quite as fine this way, but as a crust the cruchy, nuttiness was great!)
 -1/2 teaspoon sea salt
 -2 tablespoons grapeseed oil
 -1 tablespoons honey or pure maple syrup
 -1 tablespoons vanilla extract

FILLING
-1/4 cup grapeseed oil
-1/4 cup honey or pure maple syrup 
-3 large eggs
-1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice

Directions:
-Preheat the over to 350 degrees. Grease an 8 inch baking dish with grapeseed oil.  
-To make the crust, combine the almond flour and salt in a large bowl. In a medium bowl, whisk together the grapeseed oil, agave, and vanilla. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry until thoroughly combined. Press the dough into the prepared baking dish.
- Bake for about 15 minutes or until lightly golden.

-Meanwhile, mix the ingredients for the filling together in a blender:  Grapeseed oil, honey (I used honey this time but I bet it would be super yummy with pure maple syrup), eggs and lemon juice. Mix until smooth.  
-When crust is done, let cook slightly and then pour your filling over the top, bake for 15-20 more minutes.  Let cool 20 minutes then completely cool in the fridge, cut into bars and enjoy!

Delicious! ........And I'd like to leave you with just a little thought for the day!! Love yourself and your body! Always Treat yourself with kindess! :)

Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies


I've tried quite a few Paleo Chocolate Chip cookie recipes and experimented with my own and I think this is probably my favorite!!

Ingredients:
1 cup Almond Flour
1/4 tsp Sea Salt
1/8 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp Cinnamon
3 TBS Coconut oil or Butter, melted (I used Coconut Oil)
2 TBS Honey or Pure Maple syrup (I used Pure Maple Syrup)
1 1/2 tsp Vanilla (I used Vanilla Powder- love this stuff)
1-3 tsp water (I only used 1)
2-4 TBS "Enjoy" dark chocolate chips (or other dark chocolate chunks)

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350.  
Mix dry ingredients- almond flour, salt, baking powder, & cinnamon.
Add in Coconut oil/Butter, Honey/Syrup and vanilla. 
Add water to bring everything together. Then add your chocolate. 
Put on well oiled or parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake for 10-11 mintues. 
Let sit for 5-10 minutes so they can firm up...important step!
Enjoy!!
