I see there are many recipes of paleo pancakes, brownies, ice cream, cinnamon rolls (oooh myy, looks soo good..), etc. Is this something you include in your diet, or do you stay away from baking and keep it totally clean?

I certainly agree that there are many paleo treat recipes and, yes, I've pinned quite a few of them. But have I made them? Only a few and only for special occasions when hosting other people. (Often, they turn out a little dissapointing.)... (more)

What happens to sugar after it is baked? Does Glucose, Fructose, Sucrose have the same chemical properties after baking or do they become similar at the end? More theory than practice as I don't bake much anymore.

Baked goods with sugars usually contain substantial levels of acrylamides due to Maillard reactions that occur while said goods are being heated to high temperatures. Acrylamides are toxic and carcinogenic, see here:... (more)

When baking, do you find that there's a significant difference in the final product when you use avocado as opposed to coconut oil or ghee?

You're wasting the money you're paying to get raw honey when you heat it. But traditional cultures avoid heating honey because it becomes 'toxic'. I'd stick with stevia or sugar for your brownies.

So, I fancy spicing up my egg-and-bananas diet with some real cooking, but I'm on a pretty tight budget. Which is better for cooking with (I'm also trying to be somewhat calorie concious), flaxseed or almond meal?

Jessica_G 0 · June 16, 2012 at 11:59 PM

Eggs, bananas and flaxseed will make a lovely pancake. The same is true of eggs, bananas and almond meal, but the flaxseed makes a puffier, more airy cake. Flaxseeds can be used to replace eggs, so they impart a lighter quality.
