Chocolate Eclair Cake~ paleo

Megan Treats 28 Comments

There is only one thing that rivals my love for chocolate ice cream. And that is vanilla custard, either poured over something cakey, or chilled… Top the custard with whipped cream and dark chocolate syrup, and you have the mouthfeel and flavor sensation to beat all others. This “cake” is my copycat of a similar one I saw made without …

Butternut Squash Muffins {Paleo}

Megan Breakfast, Treats, Whole Food Recipes 34 Comments

Don’t you love big muffins: plump, tall, moist and splitting at their seams? Break off a chunk, both crusty and tender. Muffins are my favorite baked good. After almost five years on the GAPS Diet, our family is phasing off. There have been times in that five years that I didn’t expect ever to be able to say that. But …

GRASSHOPPER PIE~ Paleo & dairy-free!

Megan Treats, Whole Food Recipes 14 Comments

Paleo Grasshopper Pie. It’s good. Have you had the original version, made with creme de menthe? Not surprisingly, that version was likely developed in the 1950’s and contains dye from the green alcohol, not to mention many other -ahem- unnatural ingredients. This nutrient-dense version makes me smile: containing collagen, coconut butter, cocoa butter and spirulina. The crust is made with …

Egg-free Baked Goods for the Holidays! {AIP, Paleo, GAPS, & GF}

We found out my own son needed to be egg-free about one year ago. Since that time, I’ve learned to make lots of baked goods with plantains, which have an excellent starch profile and, when paired with gelatin, work well without eggs. This post contains affiliate links. I’ve also made lots of treats that don’t require eggs, like Energy Balls, “Granola” …

Grain-free “Granola” Bars {Paleo, GAPS}

Megan Cooking With Kids, Treats 21 Comments

Years ago, my hubby and I went trekking in Egypt. We first went to our favorite outdoor market in Jerusalem, hand selecting the best dates, walnuts and other dried fruits and nuts. As we hiked through the Sinai Desert, our food was in our pockets. I couldn’t have been happier: no insects and trail mix all day! Alas, to me, …

Pumpkin Scones with Glaze {Paleo, GAPS}

Megan Breakfast, Treats, Whole Food Recipes 28 Comments

This recipe is excellent. Freely serve these scones to non-Paleo friends and let them remark at the velvety texture! Coconut butter is the key ingredient, indeed creating the perfect crumb and velvety texture. This post contains affiliate links. Thank you for your support of Eat Beautiful. I make inexpensive coconut butter in this recipe by simply placing shredded coconut in …

One thing I *love* about this recipe is how fast and easy they are to make. In fact, I tried making them in a blender one time; and they turn out better as the original recipe has it: just one medium size bowl and mixing the few ingredients by hand. They turn out really light, a bit sponge-y and with the glaze, they are cake meats healthy candy- so yumm!

PALEO DONUTS ~ GAPS-friendly

Megan Giveaways, Treats, Whole Food Recipes 28 Comments

This post contains affiliate links. Thanks for your support of Eat Beautiful. I’m not sure why it took me so long to make Paleo donuts! I think I needed a recommendation for which donut pan to buy, for starters. After that, this recipe was handed to me, by a friend, via her new ebook. We love them; and I’m not …

Cantaloupe Sea Salt Ice Cream

Megan Treats, Whole Food Recipes 12 Comments

WOW! was what we all said. My boys were planning to have chocolate peanut butter ice cream at a birthday party later in the day. But when they tasted my Cantaloupe Sea Salt Ice Cream (because I often make ice cream for breakfast) they both asked if they could have it instead. (!) It’s that good. As a girl, I …
