I know that it's paleo to use almond or coconut flour instead of regular wheat flour for baking. But in my region one cannot easily find those paleo types of flours and making flour of raw almonds or even coconuts is a crazy and expensive idea... (more)

It is expensive. It's also not really the most nutritious food (not that every bite has to be as nutrient dense as possible, but things that aren't should probably not be a daily food). If you want to have "paleo" baked goods on occasion, then... (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)

Something like Brazilian Cheese Bread is simple, easy, fast and tasty. They are hard to stop eating so having a crowd to finish them off is best. Also some good pumpkin pie with nut crusts, google for recipes. (more)

Coconut flour is a tasty and much healthier option for regular grain flour. Also, much better than almond flour in my personal opinion. Less PUFA, and pretty high fiber, without an overly coconut taste. I have used it in breads, pancakes,... (more)

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?

YoungPaleoLover 0 · June 17, 2012 at 2:25 AM

Could you get sweet potato flour instead? They are less inflammatory and not too expensive or coconut flour...almonds just have such a high omega-6 ratio. I think flaxseed should be minimized in intake as well.

Depends on your recipe, but usually it can be omitted with both coconut flour and almond flour muffin recipes. The arrowroot just gives a more fluffy and cakey texture. As long as its only a small amount called for, say less than a couple... (more)

I have never seen one study that shows fructose from fruits or honey is harmful. Even the negatives associated with white sugar pretty much disappear if you eat in a meal(i.e. baked good). Don't let the fear mongers scare you.
