Sooner or later if you are loving Paleo, you will want to venture into Paleo baking. This is where you take your diet into a whole new level. Now I love bacon and eggs, but sooner or later this is going to get boring and you will want to venture on into Paleo cooking and baking. Fear not, you do not have to club anything.
Most traditional baked goods can be turned into a Paleo baked good using a couple of substitutions. The main one is the flour. You will want to use nut and other flours in place of all purpose flour. A popular flour is almond flour, but there are a few others. In many cases it makes things even tastier using the Paleo flours. This allows you to cook pancakes, casseroles, muffins, Paleo cookes, Paleo brownies, and much more. So now if you choose to have bacon and eggs, you can enjoy a muffin with it.
You will also want to look into Paleo cooking sauces and oils. Sesame oil is a popular Paleo cooking oil and it is readily available. You can probably pick that up at your favorite grocers. Sesame and olive oil are both used in Paleo cooking.
You will also want a milk or cream substitute and the Paleo diet uses Coconut milk. Coconut milk is tasty, but you really wont taste it in your baked goods. There is also a coconut butter that is available for use as a shortening.
Instead of peanut butter, you will choose another nut butter including almond , cashew and macadamia nut are all good. Peanuts are actually a legume (bean) which can cause allergic reactions in many people. The other nut butters are quite tasty. You can even enjoy a cashew nut and jelly sandwich whever you want.
In addition to these common food necessities, there will be other miscellaneous baking needs such as chicken or beef stock, as well as sauces and spices.
There are of course many other things that are needed to Paleo bake properly. You can always add fruits and nuts and items of this nature.
With just these essentials you will be ready to use a good Paleo cookbook such as
Paleohacks Cookbook, and create baked Paleo goods to make your diet more interesting. Many of these products are available from an online distributor called Tropical Traditions.
