Hazelnut scones

1 cup soaked and dehydrated hazelnuts(for easier digestion).  I buy hazelnuts and soak them for 8 hours then dehydrate them until they are dry. Then I grind it using my food processor until it's "meal" consistency.

1 pastured egg

1/4 teaspoon aluminum-free baking soda

1/4 teaspoon gluten-free vanilla

2 tablespoon raw honey

1/8 cup Spectrum shortening, softened

a dash of sea salt

Mix everything and then scoop them on a parchment-lined baking sheet.  Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes but check often.  It's done when you check with a toothpick and it comes out clean.

We really liked this. It tastes a little bit like Nutella!  Next time I make it, I will add raisins or cherries.

Paleo/SCD banana bread

1 cup almond butter (or cashew butter)
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon aluminum-free baking soda
2 tsp gluten-free vanilla
3/4 cup raw honey
1 ripe banana

Mash the bananas. Mix everything.  Put mixture in a square greased pan.  I used a glass pyrex lined with parchment paper.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until inside is cooked.  Check with a toothpick or a knife.  This comes out sweet so if you want less sweet, use more almond butter and less raw honey.

Paleo chocolate cookies again

I made these twice now because they were a big hit at my house. I've had to hide some just so I can eat one!  This was a recipe from

By this way, this recipe is egg-free, great for those who are avoiding eggs.  This was the best paleo chocolate chip cookies I've ever had.   I think the picture speaks for itself!
