Playing with almond flour

Let the experiments begin!  Left Brain is craving some bread in his diet, so it was time to break out my new supplies and get baking.

My first mini loaf is a date walnut bread, made with dates and pecans because he found and ate all the walnuts.

Next was the paleo bread, which doesn't seem high enough to be bread, but my pan was larger than recommended.  But, it was the best I could do in a pinch.  If the taste is okay, I'll invest in the pans.

The cookies were not from almond flour, although I have a recipe for that. These were from a gluten free mix and they are tasty, even though the consistency is different from what we are accustomed.  But then again, I've never met a chocolate chip cookie I didn't like.

This is my favorite part as I absolutely love to bake, so hopefully some of this will yield satisfactory results.

Long Live the Queen of Baking


  1. Looks like you are committed to this new way of life. Congratulations! I haven't transisted from the "good stuff" yet. Maybe when I get to the "healthiest city in the USA" I will rethink my evil ways! LOL

  2. You can't go bad if anything has chocolate in it. The gluten free market has really grown but where's there's a profit to be made, the market will increase.

  3. Your new breads and cookies look delicious. Almost makes me want to bake. Almost. I don't because I either eat it all, or I give it all away. DIL Janet is always baking her cookies and bringing me a whole pan full. Unless I give most of the cookies away right away, I end up eating too many of them. Sighhh.

    You have a wonderful weekend, hugs, Edna B.
