    Pressure Cooker Paleo Banana Bread

    Pressure Cooker Paleo Banana Bread! I bought this awesome electric pressure cooker called an Instant Pot. This thing is king of the kitchen right now! It pressure cooks, sautés, steams, slow cooks, ferments, and lots more! The ability I am most excited about is being able to make cakes and bread in it! I thought this was so neat!! Most of the recipes I found for bread or cake are not Paleo compliant so I had to come up with one of my own! I used this steamed banana bread recipe and substituted ingredients for Paleo ingredients. The results were AMAZING! This pressure cooker Paleo banana bread is dense and moist! I…

    Breakfast egg muffins

    Breakfast egg muffins! I posted these on my Facebook page and everyone wanted to know my recipe. Honestly when I posted them I didn’t have a real recipe. These are so easy I just toss everything in a muffin pan, bake, cool and store so they can be reheated all week for breakfast. My boys love that they can pull it out of the refrigerator themselves and toss it in the microwave. When we reheat these we only heat them for around 40 seconds, otherwise they will get crunchy. My general recipe for a 12 muffin tin: 12 eggs (we strongly prefer farm fresh) 2 heaping tbsp of cooked meat…

    Paleo Frosted Banana Bars

    Paleo Frosted Banana Bars!  We found ourselves with an abundance of overly ripe bananas. What I was wanting was Paula Deans Banana Cake with cream cheese frosting, but we all know that would have been a terrible idea! This recipe is my attempt to replicate the taste of Paula’s famous cake in a bar format that my family can eat.  The boys wouldn’t stay out of it and the entire pan of Paleo Frosted Banana Bars were GONE in less than 24 hours. My husband might have helped a little! These are great as dessert, but they are super awesome in the morning with a cup of black coffee! I…

    Two ingredient fluffy plantain pancakes!

    I always see the banana pancakes when I scroll through Pinterest and wanted to try them. Bananas in our house never make it to the brown, banana bread stage. Heck, they don’t even make it past the green tip phase before my boys devour them! I bought some plantains to fry in coconut oil and never got around to it. I had these plantains sitting on the counter almost rotting so I decided to try a little experiment! Did you know that plantains are higher in nutritional value than bananas? Per 100 grams plantains have: 2% more iron 3% more magnesium 4% more potassium 16% more vitamin C 21% more…

    Paleo Meal Plan Week 2

    Paleo meal plan week two! The readers of PoorPaleo.com asked for a meal plan and this is our response! Our family is big on simple, easy, inexpensive Paleo meals that our whole family will eat. You won’t find a lot of “Paleo-fied” breads, muffins, or desserts because I don’t always have time to make these and I really think these should be classified as treats when they ARE made. A lot of readers ask me if my kids eat the foods that I feature here. The short answer is yes. In our house I (Jennifer) am the one and only grocery shopper and meal preparer. Basically if I don’t want…

    Breakfast Can Wait!

    [wp_ad_camp_2] Breakfast can wait… No Prince, breakfast can’t wait! In our house, we feel like breakfast is essential to having a healthy start to the day! There’s not gonna be grits and gravy, cheese eggs and ham. There’s not gonna be hotcakes smothered in honey,  just good, wholesome Paleo goodness. No time to cook breakfast every morning? No problem! One of the struggles we have is getting breakfast made in the morning. It is so much easier to make toast or cereal instead of eggs and meat. We came up with a prepare-ahead breakfast plan for our family and hopefully it helps someone else make better choices for breakfast. On…
