Sloppy Joe’s with Grain Free Buns

I am going to let you in on a little secret…. I LOVE SLOPPY JOE’s!  My family has grown to love how I make Sloppy Joe’s.  My kids are probably sick of hearing how many fresh ingredients I put into making Sloppy Joe’s.  Yes, I put a lot of love in them!!

What caught my attention with this recipe was not so much the Sloppy Joe’s, as it was the picture of the grain free buns!  I will admit that I have not made this recipe, but I am now inspired to want to make these buns.  Whether it be for a future Sloppy Joe night, or what I know my daughter will love me for is if I surprise her one night with a juicy grass-fed hamburger with a BUN!!!  Ha!!

I hope to report back sooner than later after trying to make the buns!

Enjoy!!

Paleo Banana Bread

This recipe is another one of my favorite’s that my wife will make on occasion.  I am confident that if you have never used almond flour in baking, after you try a few recipes with it, you will absolutely like the taste far better than traditional all-purpose flour.

This is an easy paleo banana bread that’s gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, and refined sugar-free.  The quick bread has a great texture.  The almond flour gives it a wonderful, moist tender crumb. Many paleo baking recipes call for a long list of ingredients, but this paleo bread calls for just a few simple ingredients and comes out perfect!

My recommendation to eat this is to heat it either in the microwave or even a toaster oven.  Once you’ve heated or toasted to your liking, put some Kerrygold Pure Irish grass-fed butter on and let it melt in and enjoy it with a nice cup of coffee with heavy whipping cream!!  Dee-Lish!!!

Ingredients:

  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 very ripe bananas mashed
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 300 grams almond flour, about 3 cups
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • Option; 1/2 cup walnuts or dark chocolate chips or even a combination of the two!

Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees and grease 3 mini loaf pans using coconut oil or ghee, or line with parchment paper.
  • Beat eggs in a stand mixer with whisk attachment on medium-high speed for 2-3 minutes, until thick and pale yellow.
  • Reduce speed, add bananas and mix until combined.
  • Pour in honey and lemon juice and mix until combined.
  • Mix dry ingredients, then add to wet ingredients in 2 additions.
  • Mix until combined, fold in add-ins if using, then spoon batter into loaf pans and spread evenly.
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes, until golden brown and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  • Cool on wire rack.
