I want to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart that have purchased the new e-cookbook Paleo Recipes for Every Day! I hope you have been enjoying it as much as I enjoyed creating it. I apologize for not being around sooner since the launch of the e-book too but I was down with the flu last week. Darn flu! I don’t wish that on anyone! I guess with all the little germs floating around from my monkeys that it was only a matter of time before it caught up to me. I promise I am going to make it up to you with this post….because we have a giveaway folks! Yay! Ya’ll love a giveaway, right? I don’t do many here on the blog because I’m super selective with the ones I do. I have to believe in the product 100% before I share with you all out there. And with that being said I am a full believer in Swiss Diamonds amazing cookware! I was lucky enough to actually take a tour of their US headquarters here in Charlotte. Not only do they have amazing products but they have an amazing group of people who love the product. Trust me, coming from a person with a product background its refreshing to see passion behind a product. Once I got my hands on the product and got it in my own kitchen I see why, it really is amazing! Their grill pan even got my husband in the kitchen cooking, which is something that doesn’t happen very often! I think he’s used the grill pan more than I! My favorite happens to be the Double Burner Griddle, which I made these pancakes with. It is a fantastic alternative to messy electric griddles but with all of the benefits. Cook pancakes, eggs, sausage and bacon side-by-side on this flat griddle – or make roasted vegetables, or anything that requires a little extra room on the stovetop. When you are done, simply wash it with hot soapy water for fast clean-up. No more worrying about getting the cord wet or cleaning batter drips off the sides of your electric griddle, or having another appliance to take up room in your cabinets. Trust me, I know this all too well!
What makes Swiss Diamonds product amazing is that it has a patented coating that is reinforced with real diamond particles in order to create a long lasting, naturally nonstick surface with superior heat conduction. It can be used with no oil and cleans up with just warm soapy water – no scrubbing and soaking necessary. Additionally, the cookware is oven safe for up to 500 degrees which allows meals to be completed in just one pan – perfect for moms on the go! Or anyone for that matter who loves to cook but hates to clean up (that’s me).
Now for the fun part!!! I have partnered with Swiss Diamond to giveaway a piece of their cookware valued up to $200.

Now for the recipe for these pancakes that happen to be a new favorite in my house. I made them for my little munchkins on Valentine’s Day (hence the heart bananas) using the amazing Double Burner Griddle from Swiss Diamond.
Banana Cinnamon Pancakes
1/2 cup ripe banana, mashed (about 1 banana)
1 tablespoon almond butter
1 tablespoon maple syrup (optional)
1 tablespoon canned coconut milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup almond flour
2 tablespoon coconut flour
1 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
Heat griddle or non-stick skillet over medium heat.
In a large bowl add banana, eggs, almond butter, maple syrup, coconut milk, and vanilla and using a hand mixer combine the ingredients until smooth and blended.
Add almond flour, coconut flour, cinnamon, salt and baking soda to the wet ingredients and mix again with hand mixer until everything is incorporated.
Melt a little coconut oil on the heated skillet. Then add about 1/4 cup to about 1/3 cup batter to the skillet to make a pancake size circle. Allow the pancakes to cook on one side for 3 to 4 minutes. You do not want to flip the pancakes too soon or they will break apart. So allow them to cook on one side until golden. Then carefully, using a spatula, flip the pancake over to cook on other side.
Continue with remaining batter. And AGAIN, these will need to cook on the skillet longer than traditional pancakes so be patient. I know its hard, but I promise it will be worth it. Also, keep the heat on medium to avoid them from burning.
Top with topping of choice and enjoy!
Makes about 4 to 5 pancakes.

Paleo People launched in March 2010 and are currently in 70+ stores in the US and also is available in Canada and Australia! Laura was a previous CrossFit Affiliate, where members are advocates of food choices based on a Paleo Diet (as you’ve heard about the blog for awhile now). After being frustrated with the lack of products on the market that fit into her Paleo lifestyle she created Paleo People. The Paleo People snacks are naturally gluten-free, wheat & grain free, and without any fillers. The snacks are offered in 4 very unique varieties: Apple Crisp, Banana Nut, Cacao Nut & Cappuccino Crunch. They are available in 5 oz stand up pouches or 1oz grab, go snack size packages, and if you want more there is always the 15 oz size too. I ordered the 5 oz variety pack which have been great as a quick snack for not only me but for my little ones. Our favorite flavor is the Apple Crisp and the Cacao Nut.
Now for the fun part….the giveaway! Laura is offering up 2 winners a chance to win 12 – 1oz size package of a variety of the flavors of Paleo People. Yay! Here’s what you’ll need to do to enter the giveaway…you’ll have multiple opportunities too so read the below carefully:

Now before I leave you to enter away for the giveaway I have to tell you about the Apple and Pear Crisp. I actually used my Apple Crisp Paleo People as the crumble of this crisp. It added so much to this crisp and get this….it’s a Paleo friendly dessert/treat! Perfect for the fall weather out there and even better to try for the upcoming holidays if you need a Paleo friendly dessert to take to a party or even have at your own dinner or party. Enjoy the crisp and good luck on the giveaway! I’m really excited for 2 of you to try these snacks!
Paleo Apple Pear Crisp
1 cup of Paleo People Apple Crisp
½ cup almond flour
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 to 2 teaspoons honey (optional)
2 ½ tablespoons coconut oil
2 pears, peeled and cored
2 apples, peeled and cored
1 ½ teaspoons apple pie spice (or ground cinnamon)
Juice from ½ of lemon
Preheat oven to 350.
In a small bowl combine the Paleo People Apple Crisp, almond flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla extract, honey (if using), and coconut oil and using a fork blend together. The crumbs should be wet, if they are still dry add ½ tablespoon of coconut oil and blend with fork again.
Peel and core the apples and pears and cut into small pieces. The size of the pieces depend on how chunky you prefer your crisp. I like mine to be pretty finely chopped. Place the diced apples and pears in a small bowl and toss with lemon juice and apple pie spice (or cinnamon).
In 4 individual ramekins, place apple/pear mixture filling about ¾ full. Then top each with the Paleo People Crumb mixture. Cover each ramekin with aluminum foil and place on a baking sheet. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Then remove aluminum foil and bake for an additional 15 minutes until the tops are golden.
Allow to cool slightly before serving. Top with Paleo Pumpkin Ice Cream or other Paleo friendly ice cream of choice.
Note: If you don’t have People People on hand, you can use chopped pecans instead.
As you read this post I will be flying high in the sky on route to Arizona….to celebrate my birthday! My mom called me a couple months ago with the idea of a getaway for my birthday. Not just any getaway but a spa and hiking getaway to Sedona, Arizona. It didn’t take much convincing and I’ve been excited ever since. But I didn’t want to leave without a treat. Since it’s my birthday a treat is needed and this treat comes in the form of a Paleo-ish Pumpkin Cookie Sandwich with Paleo Pumpkin Ice Cream sandwiched in between….I’m telling you this is the perfect treat to celebrate a birthday with in a Paleo fashion. Since I’m leaving on my birthday we had to celebrate in my house and my request was not to have the traditional cake or ice cream so instead we had these! They were heavenly and I have to say I’m so happy it’s that time of the year for pumpkin. I love the stuff!
Ok, before I leave you I have one more treat….a giveaway! The lovely folks at Taste of Home sent me two copies of their latest cookbook that just hit the bookstores. It’s jammed pack with 800 baking recipes, which even include a few gluten-free items. I’ll be giving away 1 copy to 2 readers.

Now let’s get to the treat. First off the cookies! Now there are a couple ways you can make these. With or without the chocolate chips. I did half the cookies with and half without. Either way they are delicious.
Paleo Pumpkin Spice Cookies
2 cups blanched almond flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice, plus more for sprinkling on tops of cookies
1/2 cup pure pumpkin puree
1 small ripe banana, mashed
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl whisk together the almond flour, baking soda, salt, and pumpkin pie spice.
In a small bowl mix together pumpkin puree, mashed banana, maple syrup (if using), vanilla extract.
Mix wet ingredients into dry ingredients and stir until combine. Then add melted coconut oil and stir to incorporate. If you are using chocolate chips stir those into the batter.
Drop spoonful of batter (about 1 to 2 tablespoons in size) onto prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle the tops of the cookies with additional pumpkin pie spice. Bake cookies for 25 to 30 minutes until golden.
Cookies are best kept in a airtight container in the refrigerator.
Paleo Pumpkin Ice Cream
1 can of coconut milk
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/2 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
In a bowl whisk together all ingredients until well combine.
Pour into the bowl of a ice cream machine and follow the directions of your ice cream machine.
To assemble sandwiches:
On one side of the bottom of a cookie place a scoop of ice cream. Take another cookie and place flat side down on top of ice cream and slightly press down. Eat right away or wrap in plastic wrap or airtight container and store in freezer.
Note: It’s best to assemble sandwiches when ice cream is soft.
