I love baking in the fall.
I love baking healthy treats even more.
These Paleo Pecan Pie Muffins are perfect for fall and so easy to make.
They are rich, sweet and full of buttery pecans. Gluten free, dairy free, and so delicious.
Almond flour is one of my favorite gluten-free flours to bake with . It’s great for those seeking low carb, higher protein treats-and for those looking to transition off of white flour.
Here is some background information on almond flour…Did you know? Almond flour is low in carbohydrates and high in protein, compared to wheat and rice flours, which are both high-carbohydrate, low-protein flours. Almond flour contains zero trans fat and is high in fiber. It is also packed with nutrients, vitamins, and minerals — providing sustained energy for the long haul. In addition, almond flour is very low on the glycemic index and a natural anti-inflammatory.
If you are looking to lose weight, please read this…
Many gluten-free foods are made by replacing wheat flour with cornstarch, rice starch, potato starch, or tapioca starch (starch extracted from the root of the cassava plant). This is especially hazardous for anybody looking to drop ten, twenty, thirty, or more pounds, since gluten-free foods, though they do not trigger the immune or neurological response of wheat gluten, still trigger the glucose-insulin response that causes you to gain weight. Foods made with cornstarch, rice starch, potato starch, and tapioca starch are among the few foods that increase blood sugar, even more than wheat products.
As a former carb (gluten) and sugar addict, it is these types of healthier switches that helped bring me back into balance and good health, and lose those last 5-10 pounds and stop the addiction cycle.
With treats like these Paleo Pecan Pie Muffins, you will not only feel delightfully satisfied, you will also be giving yourself more nutritious options, without deprivation, to reach your goals.
