Having no bread with Paleo is ok with me….. well now it is, sure as hell wasn’t at first but its gotten much easier. But we still eat with “normal” people and they will expect some sort of bread for that huge holiday meal you’re already slaving and stressing over. Luckily, I have something to fill that need!
The Paleo Blue Corn Muffin! It’s based on Bobby Flay’s recipe that is featured at the MESA Grill. Which is fantastic if you’ve never tried it, great southwestern food.
Of course in Paleo we don’t eat milk, wheat, or corn. That’s right, no corn! It’s a grain! But you already knew that ’cause you’re fancy. So I adapted his recipe and I think it turned out great! Give them a try and let me know what you think! Better yet, sneak them into your holiday meal as a healthy alternative and then let me know what your guests think, bet they won’t be able to tell. My friends who were over for the the Halloween Feast didn’t!
Enjoy and eat clean!
