Many of my blog posts contain affiliate links. Purchasing through an affiliate link allows me to keep blogging and sharing what I learn with you. It is a bit like leaving a tip for service and is very much appreciated.   Thank You! –PattyLA One of my children  can’t tolerate egg yolks.  Because of that, I am working on developing some egg free, grain free, “bread like” recipes to meet her needs. Some are better than others. This one, oddly enough, she did not care for but the rest of us really liked them. In fact, we liked the egg free version better than the same recipe made with eggs (although both were good).  You may find that your family needs more sweetener than mine does so feel free to increase the date/honey in this mixture as needed. While it is tempting to...

Coconut Flour Hot Crossed Buns

Posted by on Apr 8, 2012 in GAPS, God, Low Oxalate, Recipe, Traditional Foods | 8 comments

One of me memories from growing up was that every Sunday morning we would have scrambled eggs and some sort of sweet pastry before church.  On Easter this was usually hot crossed buns.  These pasties were usually purchased and made by Entenmann’s.  Not exactly real food or GAPS friendly but still a memory that comes back to me at times.  Easter is one of those times. In reading about Hot Crossed Buns I have learned that they are traditionally eaten on Good Friday not Easter Sunday as we did growing up.  I have also learned that they are yet another tradition that has been borrowed by Christians from earlier pagan practices.  Spiced buns with a cross marked on them were eaten to celebrate spring by the Saxons and possibly earlier than that in other cultures. For me I like...

Coconut Butter Pancakes

My youngest turned 4 recently and when I asked her what foods she wanted to eat for her birthday she said “Pancakes”  I took this as an opportunity to work on my pancake recipe.  I think it turned out pretty good.  Let me know what you think. Coconut Butter Pancakes 2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut or 1 cup coconut butter 4-8 dates (optional) 10 oz cooked butternut squash or other winter squash (I buy it frozen) 10 eggs 1 tbsp vanilla If you are using coconut butter skip this first step otherwise put the shredded coconut into a high speed blender like a vitamix or a food processor and let it process till it makes a smooth butter.  This will take 5-15 minutes depending on your machine. Scrape down the sides as needed. If using coocnut butter warm it...

Hootenanny Pancakes

Posted by on Jan 24, 2012 in GAPS, Low Oxalate, Recipe | 14 comments

When I married my husband and inherited that recipe box I spoke of in my post about the Cranberry Cake with Hot Butter Sauce I discovered some other family favorites. One that my husband fondly remembered his grandmother making was called Hootenanny Pancakes. He said that his grandmother used this to sneak eggs into his cousins who didn’t like eggs. At first glance the flour and milk in the original recipe make it seem like a GAPS impossibility, not to mention the margarine. But with a bit of thought and trial and error I figured out how to make this work.  The best thing about this recipe is how quick and easy it is to make.  Much easier than regular pancakes. Hootenanny Pancakes 1/2 cup grass fed butter 6 pastured eggs 1 cup yogurt or kefir 1/4 cup coconut flour click here to buy...

It is quick, easy and uses only real food, is GAPS approved, and can be made with only LOD ingredients ( Using Be Young Essential Oils will lower the oxalates significantly).   Egg Drink 2 eggs 2 tbsp Coconut Oil 2 tbsp grassfed Butter 1 tbsp HONEY (also works with stevia adjust to taste) 1 tsp Vanilla Extract (optional) 1/2 tsp Cinnamon (optional) or 1 drop Be Young Cinnamon Essential Oil 1/2 tsp Nutmeg (optional) 1.5 cups boilling water Kitchen equipment Hand Blender or regular blender* Put all of the ingredients into your blender jar except for the water (I use my stick blender for this and use a qt mason jar to make it...
