American Idol finalist and multi-genre singer/songwriter Rachel Hale has shared two paleo-friendly recipes from her ‘Hales Kitchen‘ Instagram series just in time for Father’s Day. Rachel talked about and demonstrated the recipes on Nashville’s News Channel 5‘s “Talk of the Town.”
PIGS IN A POP
1 1/2 cup almond flour
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
2 mashed bananas
1 tsp vanilla extract
Links of your favorite Paleo breakfast sausage, cooked and cut in tiny pieces
Preheat cake pop maker or oven to 350. Combine dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. Add remaining ingredients and whisk into a smooth thick batter.
For cake pop maker: Grease cake pop maker with coconut oil, add a bit of batter, place your piece of sausage, add remainder of batter to cover sausage. Bake for 2-4 minutes until done, or according to your machine instructions.
Serve with Maple Syrup.
PROTEIN MUG CAKE

1 tbsp almond flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup water
