Living the Paleo lifestyle would be very hard for me if I wasn’t a baker! There is something very special and nourishing about eating something that has a bready consistency, particularly if it is warm and fresh out of the oven. Once you add the chocolate to it, I’m completely undone 🙂 Limiting grains in a Paleo diet does not mean that you need to avoid all baked goods such as muffins and cake and cookies. But it does mean that you need to get creative (or at least find a creative bakery in your area!). Fortunately, I love to bake which has made me a happy person, but also has made my husband and I happy parents. Sending our kiddos off to school with packed school lunches can definitely be a daily chore for a parent, but when you regularly bake, it helps to add a yummy sweet treat to their lunches to make them feel less different and more lucky! Check out this delicious (and nourishing) Banana & Chocolate Chip Muffin recipe– a perfect midday snack for you and wonderful complement to any school lunch!
