The BEST Paleo Apple Pie EVER!

Do you remember my all time favorite recipe Apple Pie from Spelt Flour (less sugar, less fat, much more apples)? I receive many e-mails thanks of this recipe. You ask me a lot to create Paleo version... So here is it, guys! This is my masterpiece! Amazing crispy crust, lots of apples and vanilla/cinnamon smell.... Heaven on the Earth... just try it!



Crust:
1 cup of almond flour
6 tablespoons of tapioca flour
4 tablespoons of coconut oil
1/4 teaspoon of baking powder
1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Filling:
6 big apples
3 tablespoons of honey (or agave sirup)
2 tablespoons of cinnamon powder

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).

Mix all ingredients for crust in a big bowl. Put baking paper to a pie mold. Then use your fingers to press crust mixture to the mold. You want thin layer with nice borders.



Put crust to the oven for 10- 15 minutes. Until it's slightly gold.

In the meantime grate apples. I like peel my apples for this type of cake, but feel free keep skin on the apples if you want.

Remove crust from the oven and put half of the apples over the crust. Be careful since mold is very hot in this moment. Use back of a tablespoon to distribute apples in a layer. Then sprinkle over cinnamon over apples and cover it with another layer from the remaining apples. Use the tablespoon again to create a nice layer form apples.

Then cover apples with honey. This will make them extra yummy.




Put the mold back to the oven again and lower temperature to the 212°F (100°C) and bake your pie for 2 hours. Yes it really need 2 hours, because we bake cake at lower temperature. Remove from the oven, let it cool down completely and serve.

Paleo Olive Crackers




¼ cup of flax seed (minced)
¼ cup of  canned black olives (drained and minced)
¼ cup of sun dried tomato pesto
2 tablespoons of pine nuts (minced)
1 tablespoon of sesame seeds (minced)
1 cup of pumpkin seeds flour

Mix everything together in a mixing bowl.

Put baking papers on two dehydrator (what is it?) trays. Spread mixture evenly on the trays using the back of a spoon.

Start dehydrating the crackers for 1 hour at 70°C (158°F).

Then lower heat to 40°C (104°F) and continue dehydrating for another 10 hours.

Once the crackers are holding their shape very well (about 8 hours in the dehydrator) remove the baking paper and place the crackers directly on the dehydrator tray.

Finish dehydrating.




I love those crackers with egg salad or tuna spread. You can use them as a regular bread :-)

Slow Cooker - is it worthy?

Hi guys, I have for you today Slow Cooker oriented post...

Slow Cookers become popular few years ago. Usually for busy women who need to fed their families. Another big boom started with Paleo diet. Since this is great tool for Paleo eaters, I would like to cover frequently asked questions here.




Source: amazon.com

 
How it works?
Slow Cooker is electronical pot with thermostat, which cooks on lower temperatures in the 79–93 °C (175–200 °F) range, but much longer time period then traditional cooking methods. Usually from 8-16 hours. Food is simmered all the time. This can prevent overcooking and also safe vitamins.

Which type of Slow Cooker I should buy?
There are plenty of types now. You can choose size and functions.
I had one “standard” size few years ago. (No other sizes exist that time). Its same size like this one you can check on official site today (click here). For 2 people it’s quite big. You get about 6 -8 portions from one batch. Well I prefer smaller version now – since we are still only two at home. So now I have this one (click here). It’s only 12.99 $ now (at the time I write this post).
I also have version without timer and without “keep warm” function. And I have no issue with it. I buy simple mechanical timer from IKEA (about 2$) and it works well.

Where to buy?
Check official site for great deals (click here), or you can find them on Amazon as well (click here).

How to use it?
Using is very simple. Put your food inside, add water and turn on. Done. Everything else is on Slow Cooker. No need to stir (actually you should NOT open it at all during the cooking process). No need to check it. You can even leave your home during cooking process.

Is it worthy?
Yes! Definitely! You save your time – since it’s not necessary to check your meal every x minutes… you even can be out (at work for example) and your meal is safety prepared. When you arrive home, your dinner is ready to serve!
Also you will safe your money! You can buy cheaper cuts of meat now, because cheaper cuts of meat with connective tissue and lean muscle fibre are suitable for stewing, and tastier than stews using expensive cuts, as long slow cooking will soften the connective tissue without toughening the muscle. Slow cooking leaves the gelatinized tissue in the meat, so that it may be advantageous to start with a richer liquid.

I think its great tool and you need it in your life. You can buy them really cheap in those days, so why to wait? :-)

If you have any other questions, please let me know in the comments section below.

MHP - Paleo Protein review

Hi guys, I have to share with you my favorite protein powder, which I love right now.

When I start eating Paleo, all my protein powders go off the game in a minute. All of them was from soy, diary or any kind of shity ingredients. Full of crap. I start to looking for another one.... paleo friendly.

And I find this one. No, I'm not protein powder eater anymore -of course I prefer real food. But sometimes you need to have some fast and easy option with you.. you know... And this is where this baby comes to the stage.


It's from Beef and Egg Whites... and they have two flawors. Triple chocolate and Almond Vanilla. I didn't try Vanilla yet, but Chocolate one it great! If you are choloholic like I am... you would love it.

I use it for shakes of course, but also for pancakes or any kind of baking stuff. It's great amazing taste without any wierd undertaste... , perfect for baking as well.

You can buy them online on: http://themhpstore.com/paleo_protein.html for 54,99$ and it's 2lbs. (921g)

This is not sponsorred reveiw - I just want to share with you my personal experience. I really love it and I hope this will be good for you as well.

Please share in comments bellow your favorite paleo friendly proteins.. I'm open to try another one by your recommendation....

Have a great day, guys!

In this book you can read how it works in our bodies from science point of view. Every step is followed by detailed analysis why it's good for us. I love this book! This really give me full perspective - finally.

I learn a lot about basic things - sugar, proteins, fat. I start incorporate this diet to my Paleo diet and it works! It works absolutely amazing!
