This is why I am struggling with choosing the Paleo lifestyle. I have read the books by Dr. Loren Cordain. What I like about his books is all the scientific references he includes. He doesn't say anything without backing it up with research. And as a scientist, I love that. However, I do not want to stop eating cheese and cream, grains or beans. I just don't want to.
Than being said. My kids always want cookies and cakes.(recipes) For a while I have had a recipe of cookies that I thought was pretty healthy. It uses either whole grain pastry flour, or to go grain free rice flour and almond flour, applesauce, flax seeds, cocoa powder and chocolate chips. The applesauce and chocolate are sweet enough that I don't add any sugar. My kids love it. I also make some cupcakes that I based on some paleo recipes I've come across but I've changed them up because I couldn't find coconut flour and just using almond flour, I think, makes them gross.
