Paleo Spanish Fig Bread (Pan de Higo)

It’s the time of year where there seems to be a party or event every weekend. While I love seeing people I don’t see as often as I should, I find myself indulging in non-Paleo snacks more often than I should. This year, I’ve tried a new tactic! I bring Paleo-friendly appetizers to every gathering and this Paleo Spanish Fig Bread is always a hit for my paleo and non-paleo friends!

Paleo Coconut Caramel Brownies

I don’t usually bake. I’ve always been good at it, but it just never seems quite as fun. To me, baking is the flip-side of cooking: cooking is all organized chaos and anything goes, while baking is rule-heavy and chemistry reliant.

Simple Paleo Chocolate Muffins (Paleo, Gluten Free)

I know, Paleo Muffins… it doesn’t sound right.  To be honest I’m not going to lie and tell you it’s healthy or anything crazy like that, but some times (maybe a special occasion), you want a treat here and there, and I will say that it is smarter to eat a “Paleo” muffin made with ground almond and honey versus some cupcake you buy at Walmart that’s loaded with sugar, and also contains artificial sweeteners and color additives.
