Paleo Italian Meatballs with Marinara Sauce

Paleo Italian Meatballs with Marinara Sauce

As I was nursing the baby before bed tonight, I was thinking about how quickly the past 6+ months since Piper’s birth have flown by. I vividly remember the first few days we were home from the hospital and demolition had just begun on our kitchen. I was holed up in my bedroom with a…

These Brownies Are Almost Healthy Enough to Get You a Hall Pass on the Whole30

These Brownies Are Almost Healthy Enough to Get You a Hall Pass on the Whole30

Whether you’re eating a diet that’s vegan, gluten-free, sugar-free, Paleo, or Whole30, this brownie recipe has got you covered. That’s because it’s made with only three common ingredients. You can’t get any simpler than that!

You probably already have everything you need to make these brownies, except maybe the patience to wait for them to cook! These come together in 25 minutes flat. Just mix the batter real quick and bake.

They’re 140 calories and offer 3.1 grams of protein and 2.1 grams of fiber. They’re also lower in carbs and sugar as compared to a typical brownie recipe.

This simple dessert offers that fudgy texture and chocolaty flavor you crave, but you can feel good knowing there’s no refined flour or sugar added. We do apologize for introducing you to this recipe because from now on, you’ll be waiting for your bananas to ripen just so you can make a batch!

Baked Egg and Roasted Veggie Casserole

Baked Egg and Roasted Veggie Casserole

You guys this might be the EASIEST recipe I’ve ever made.  Seriously. After a full week of meal prepping, I had a ton of leftover veggies that I wanted to use up so I thought why not roast them in a casserole dish and throw some eggs on top!  This dish is literally as simple as […]

Try Not to Drool: Paleo Lemon Cupcakes With Creamy Coconut Icing

Try Not to Drool: Paleo Lemon Cupcakes With Creamy Coconut Icing

The following post was originally featured on Peanut Butter Fingers and written by Julie Fagan, who is part of POPSUGAR Collective.

This recipe for Paleo Lemon Cupcakes is a sweet and tangy gluten-free dessert, made with fresh lemon juice and sweetened with honey. Top with your favorite Paleo-friendly icing or leave the icing off for a simple and deliciously bright sweet treat.

This past Sunday, I made my third attempt at Paleo lemon cupcakes and thank goodness these cupcakes finally turned out well! I love experimenting in the kitchen but Paleo and gluten-free baking is a bit of a beast for me. If I’m not following a cookbook or online recipe exactly, it will often take me several attempts to come up with a creation that we would deem a true success in our house.

Thankfully Ryan and I are the least picky eaters in the world, so we’ve still managed to eat our way through way-too-dense muffins, pancakes that basically taste like ground up almonds and cake that crumbled into pieces on the first slice. But these cupcakes passed the taste test from people outside of the Stomachs-of-Steel Fagan family.

Two of my close girlfriends have little ones who do not eat dairy and one of them also does not eat gluten, so I try to make some Paleo and gluten-free snacks they can enjoy when we all get together on occasion and these cupcakes passed the toddler taste test when I served them up yesterday, too!

These Paleo lemon cupcakes are lower in sugar than most cupcakes (especially if you leave the icing off, which is what we did for the little ones – does that make them muffins?) and the tangy lemon flavor stands out perfectly against the light sweetness of honey.
