Prep Time 40 minutes
Cook Time 8 minutes
Total Time 48 minutes

Ingredients

Dry Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup Coconut Flour
  • 1/4 cup Tapioca Starch
  • 1/4 cup Arrowroot Starch
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon

Wet Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup Pure maple syrup
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoon Pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup Coconut oil, melted

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Place the dry ingredients in a medium bowl and whisk to combine.
  3. Add the maple syrup, egg and vanilla extract. Mix well with a hand mixer.
  4. With the mixer on low, slowly add the coconut oil. Blend well to incorporate. Let the dough rest for 3 minutes.
  5. Pat the dough into a disc, cover in plastic wrap and refrigerate 15 -30 minutes.
  6. Place refrigerated dough between 2 pieces parchment paper (big enough to fit on your baking sheet) and roll to a 1/4-inch thick rectangle. Remove top piece of parchment, place bottom piece with the dough on the baking sheet.
  7. Using a sharp knife, score the dough lengthwise into 6 sections, then across into 4 sections. (Or be independent and make them as large or small as you’d like!)
  8. Poke dough all over with fork.
  9. Bake 8 minutes, then pull the tray out and carefully (use a spatula) separate the crackers. Return the crackers to the oven and bake 5-10 minutes more, or until centers are cooked and edges are golden.
  10. Cool on trays on wire racks. Store in an airtight container up to 5 days or freeze for up to 3 months.

batch of graham crackers on baking sheetDoes it seem to you that the Paleo craze just won’t go away.  Personally – I don’t think it will, nor should it, for good reason.  People are becoming healthier when they go paleo.

For some, starting and sticking to a paleo diet is not a problem. But many starting the new lifestyle struggle finding food that has a sense of familiarity.  You know –  comfort food.

For those people – like me – Tammy Credicott’s book Paleo Indulgences: Healthy Gluten-Free Recipes to Satisfy Your Primal Cravings hits the spot.  She has created paleo versions of scones, muffins, quick bread, cupcakes, brownies, crackers, and so many more tempting treats that no one has an excuse for straying off the paleo path.

Paleo Indulgences CookbookThe book starts off with Tammy’s introduction and explanation of why she follows a paleo/primal diet and the results that she and her family have seen as a result of their dietary changes.  I like how in the About the Book section she writes in a down-to-earth tone.  She is not trying to cram the paleo lifestyle down our throats.  

She further explains in the book what paleo/primal is, the do’s and don’ts, the 80/20 philosophy (basically if you are good most of the time, you can give yourself a little break every now and then and enjoy a paleo treat).  The book also covers many of the ingredients on a paleo diet.

At the beginning of the book is a thumbnail recipe table of contents.  I love this part because it makes it easy to find inspiration and locate the recipes that I want to make.

So far I have tried several of her recipes, like the Broccoli Beef pictured below, with good results.

Broccoli Beef
Tammy’s recipe for One-Minute Chocolate Cake had better results than non-paleo microwavable cupcakes that I have made in the past.  The batter rose nicely while it cooked and then settled a bit after it cooled.   So far I have had it twice – the second time I threw in a few chocolate chips.  (I am bad like that.)

One-Minute Chocolate Cake
The Candied Coconut Walnuts are FABULOUS!  They only take a few simple ingredients and take no longer than 20 minutes to bake.  The first time that I made them I did not have enough walnuts, so I used some pecan pieces that I had in my pantry.  They were really good.  So good that I have made the recipe twice now and just bought another bag of walnuts so that I can make it again.

The vanilla cupcakes were interesting.  I like how the recipe makes six cupcakes.  I hate making 18 at one time – having so many left over makes it easy to over consume.  My daughter didn’t care for them.  With four eggs in the batter, they do have a rather unique characteristic – not really moist or wet, but different.  It doesn’t bother me and it won’t stop me from eating them.   The frosting is very soft, not at all like a buttercream.  It is sweetened with maple syrup and I can definitely taste it.  It would be a great spread on Tammy’s Cinnamon-Swirl Rolls like she suggests.

This weekend I am going to try to make Cincinnati Chili, Italian Herb Crackers, Decadent Brownies, and possibly Almond o’Joys! from the book. Some others that I hope to try in the near future are Peppermint Creams, Asian Pork Lettuce Cups, Chinese Pepper Steak, Meatball Sub, Antipasto Salad, Pecan Sandies, Sugar Cookies, and maybe a few more.

If you are wanting to follow a paleo diet, I would encourage you to get Tammy’s book.  You can find it at your local bookstore or at Amazon.com.

I love the way that she thinks and writes – she is someone who I would love to sit down and have a cup of coffee with.  I could see us sitting at a table, sipping coffee and eating some of her Grain-Free Some-More-Ahh’s talking about the benefits of eating paleo dishes.

Have you tried any paleo recipes?
