If your family is anything like my family, your children (and you) don’t want to give up all snacks and deserts. Although most nutritionists say giving up white sugar and white flour can make your family healthy, that is easier said than done!  However, with a little change in your lifestyle, you can adapt your taste buds!  Here are four recipes my family loves. I’ve included a couple photographs in the video. Let me know if you try any of these in the comments below! I hope to hear from you. 🙂

1. Paleo Lavender Madelines


  • 3/4 Cup Almond Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 Cup Honey
  • 2 Tbsp Lemon Zest
  • 2 tsp Lavender Buds
  • 2/3 C Ghee, melted


  1. Whisk the flour, baking powder, and salt together in a small bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, honey, lemon zest, and lavender buds until a smooth mixture is produced.
  3. Wish the dry ingredients in until just incorporated, and then add the ghee, whisking until the mixture is smooth and silky.
  4. Cover and refrigerate for one hour.
  5. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  6. Lightly grease madeline pan with ghee.
  7. Spoon the batter into the pan, filling 2/3 of each madeline well.
  8. Bake for 8-10 minutes when using a full-sized madeline pan (or around 5 minutes for a mini pan), until edges are browned slightly and spring back when pressed lightly. Tap to release the madelines. Enjoy.
