Makes 10 Mince Pies

Ingredients

  • 150g of almond flour (ground almonds)

  • 75g of coconut flour

  • 1 tbsp of coconut sugar

  • 1/2 tsp of baking powder

  • 1/2 tsp of salt

  • Zest of an orange

  • 115g of butter, frozen. Plus a little extra for greasing

  • 1 egg, beaten

  • Approx 350g homemade mincemeat, or if you want to buy the mincemeat we recommend a more natural brand such as Meridian

Method

  1. Sieve the ground almonds, coconut flour, sugar, baking soda and salt into a bowl and stir in the orange zest.

  2. Grate the frozen/cold butter into the flour and mix together with your fingers until crumbs form.

  3. Stir in the egg and bring together with your hands until a dough is formed.

  4. Divide the dough in half, wrap each in cling film, and place in the fridge for at least one hour.

  5. Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees and grease the moulds of a muffin / cake tin.

  6. Remove the dough from the fridge and place between two sheets of baking paper. Roll out the dough and using a cookie cutter, cut out circles and press into the moulds; patience is required as being gluten free means the pastry will be a little more crumbly - it’s fine to use your fingers to squish together any cracks!

  7. Fill each pastry mould with mincemeat, then using the remainder of the dough, cut out enough stars to top each pie with.

  8. Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes, or until turning golden. Leave to cool in the tin before gently easing out (this is important or they may fall apart!)

  9. Enjoy on their own or serve with coconut yogurt, delicious!

Fudgy Paleo Brownies

Dreamy, fudgy, gluten and wheat free brownies that are deliciously indulgent (and more-ish!) and easy to make! Perfect with a cold glass of our almond milk. 

The Paleo Foods Co_18.04.20182464.jpg

Makes 12-15 brownies

 

Ingredients

- 70g grass-fed butter

- 60g virgin coconut oil

- 160g of maple syrup

- 80g of cocoa powder

- ½ teaspoon of rock sea salt

- 2 medium eggs (room temperature)

- 70g of almond flour

 

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 160 degrees and line an 8x8 inch baking tin with grease proof paper.

2. Add the butter, coconut oil, maple syrup, cocoa powder and salt to a heatproof bowl and melt over a pot of boiling water. Heat until all butter and coconut oil has melted and the mixture is well incorporated. Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly (about 2 mins).

3. Now add the eggs one at a time (ensure these are at room temperature!). Stir the mixture well after adding each egg ensuring they are evenly mixed.

4. Add almond flour to the mixture, stirring vigorously until fully blended. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking pan.

5. Bake for 15-25 minutes or until the centre has just set (this varies dependingon oven type). The best way to check if it's ready is to insert a tooth pick into the centre; it should come out almost clean and slightly moist. Be careful not to overcook it as it will dry out and lose its lovely fudgy texture!

6. Allow to cool completely (you can place in the freezer for 10mins to speed upcooling time and reduce drooling time!). Cut brownies to desired size and enjoy right away with a nice cold glass of Paleo Foods Co. Almond Milk and fresh strawberries! (These brownies are best kept refrigerated)

Vegan Chickpea Pancakes

Happy Pancake Day!

Give these vegan pancakes a try made with our thick, creamy almond milk and drizzled with maple syrup.

TPFC_Web-1 (1).jpg

Makes a stack of 7­-8 pancakes

Ingredients

  • 125g chickpea flour
  • 1 ½ tsp of baking powder
  • 100 ml of The Paleo Foods Co. 9% almond milk
  • 1 large ripe banana, mashed
  • 1 tbsp of maple syrup
  • Coconut oil (for frying)
  • Optional: pinch of salt, ½ tsp of cinnamon, 1 tsp of vanilla

Method

1. In a large bowl sift together the chickpea flour and baking powder.

2. Place the banana, maple syrup, almond milk and the optional ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

3. Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture and whisk together to create a smooth batter. If the batter seems to thick add a little extra almond milk gradually, or if it seems too wet add a little extra flour (you want a slightly thicker than traditional pancake recipe).

4. Place a small frying pan on a medium heat adding one teaspoon of coconut oil. Once the pan is hot and the oil has melted reduce the heat a little.

5. Scoop up a full ladle of the pancake batter and pour onto the pan, after 1 minute or so, or when the top starts to bubble, flip and cook on the other side. (It’s useful to peak underneath the pancake before you flip to check it has got colour!). 

6. Continue with the rest of the batter until all pancakes are made and then serve with coconut yogurt, extra maple syrup, berries and a sprinkling of freshly toasted pecans (or our grain-free granola!)

Enjoy!
