This time of year many people are baking or making tasty little treats to gift or share with family for the festive season. It’s such a lovely thing to receive a handmade gift, something baked with love. That is, as long as it’s not filled with processed grains and sugars.
The festive season can be hard to avoid those foods that you have chosen to remove from your diet. For many people it takes an extra effort to resist. So receiving a girt made with real food ingredients shows the extra care and effort has been put into that gift. Here I have put together 10 recipes that would make great homemade gifts. Things I’d love to receive myself.
I little while ago I was scrolling social media and stumbled over a new product that I was very keen to find out more about. It was very exciting to find out that this new ingredient was from right here in Australia, more precisely, from far north Queensland.
I may consider it a fairly new product, but it has been used for centuries in many countries. It’s Paleo and gluten friendly, high in dietary fibre, a great source of magnesium and potassium.
Even for someone who is happy to not eat grains, I still have a sweet tooth. I know that is where many can fall off the bandwagon so to speak when sticking to a new eating plan. I have THE best cookie recipe for you today. I know its a big call that it is the best recipe, but really it is.
The choc chip cookie must be one of the most recognised cookies all over the world. I have tried several paleo versions, most have been too soft or too soggy. A good cookie to me is crisp on the outside and soft in the centre. Here is a Paleo version of a choc chip cookie from Against All Grain, that is the best, most tastiest I have found. I have adapted it for the Thermomix.
