Happy April! Happy Spring! It already looks like a beautiful blue sky kind of day and it’s not even 8 am yet!
Now, I’ve told you before that My Guy would prefer to stick to a Paleo diet, so, he’s always sending me online recipes that seem tasty. Things he’d like to try, and knowing I love to cook and bake, I can’t resist the challenge. I think he was expecting these to come out more like a ‘bar’. I think he was expecting something crunchy. Now, I’m not sure if it was the way I cooked it, or, if it was the recipe itself, but, for me these came out a bit cakey. I was actually thrilled with the end result. As, anything that tastes a bit ‘CAKEY’ works for me! I added an apple to the recipe for a bit more sweetness. In my opinion these are a scrumptious breakfast option. So, make them up, let me know if they come out a bit more ‘crunchy’ for you.
Here’s a recipe from a fabulous Paleo website, TGIpaleo
- 2 Large Yams, shredded
- 6 Eggs, beaten
- 2 T Coconut Flour
- 2 t Cinnamon
- 1 t Vanilla
- 1 t Salt
- 1 apple, peeled and shredded (optional)
In a large bowl, combine the yams with the eggs, coconut flour, cinnamon, salt, and vanilla. Press the mixture down into a greased 4.8 QT (15x10x2) baking dish.
Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes, or until the top is browned and there are no liquid bubbles. Cool completely before cutting into bars.
