White Chocolate Glaze Paleo Brownies

Holy moly. Someone come and take these paleo brownies out of my house, please. They are way too addicting and I can’t stop. So make at your own risk. Don’t say I didn’t warn you now.

White Chocolate Glaze Paleo Brownies Recipe

These paleo brownies are made with almond flour as the base and sweetened with coconut sugar. They honestly just taste like regular brownies and you wouldn’t even notice that they are grain free. The combination of eggs, ghee, and melted chocolate chips makes these paleo brownies super moist and decadent.

You honestly don’t even need to make the white chocolate glaze if you don’t want to or are just feeling lazy. The paleo brownies alone are pretty darn fantastic if I do say so myself. BUT. If you want to feel a bit fancier and extra, the white chocolate glaze really does add a fantastic texture to the recipe.

Decadent White Chocolate Glaze

If you are a white chocolate lover, I highly recommend you add this layer because it’s super easy to make but adds such a delicious and delicate crunch and sweetness to this recipe. Cacao butter is melted with a little big of honey then poured and brushed on top of the paleo brownies. Once it’s cooled, it hardens into the most delicious glaze that complements the softness of the brownies so so well.

It also adds such a pretty design to the brownies that I think makes them look even more special. I’m definitely going to have to make a batch over the winter because I’m loving the “snowy” look of that glaze! So perfect for the holidays.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F, and line an 8x8 baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, stir together almond flour, carob powder, coconut sugar, baking soda, and sea salt. 

  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, ghee, and vanilla extract. 

  4. Pour wet ingredients over dry ingredients and stir together until smooth.

  5. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. 

  6. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. 

  7. Cool the brownies in the pan for 30 minutes. 

  8. While the brownies are cooling, melt cacao butter and honey in a heat safe bowl over a pot of simmer water on low heat, about 5 minutes. The mixture should be thin. You can also microwave this mixture 30 seconds at a time while stirring in between until completely melted.

  9. Set aside to cool until warm to touch. 

  10. Once the brownies are cooled completely, evenly pour the cocoa butter mixture over the brownies and use a spoon or a spatula to evenly spread into a thin layer.

  11. Sprinkle with sea salt flakes, if using. 

  12. Place in the refrigerator for 10-15 minutes until the glaze hardens and turns white.

  13. Remove from the refrigerator and use the parchment paper to lift the brownies out of the pan. You may need to use a knife to loosen the sides if the glaze seeped in there. 

  14. Cut into squares and enjoy! Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week.

Bacon Ranch Deviled Eggs

These paleo Bacon Ranch Deviled Eggs are the most delicious finger food that’s full of healthy and yummy fats. Make them for your next party or gathering!

Paleo Bacon Ranch Deviled Eggs-2

You guys, I think I have a new favorite deviled eggs recipe. Actually, it’s a toss up between this one and my Pickle Deviled Eggs recipe, and it’s really hard to decide which one I love more.

I made these Bacon Ranch Deviled Eggs because my husband has a serious ranch obsession that won’t quit. I don’t love ranch so I didn’t think I would like these THAT much, but I was surprised by how tasty these turned out. And it really does taste like ranch!

Paleo Bacon Ranch Deviled Eggs

Theses Bacon Ranch Deviled Eggs are a perfect finger food for parties and gatherings, or if you just want a healthy, low carb afternoon snack. I just love the combination of the textures: smooth and creamy yolk mixture with the crunchy and salty bacon bits.

And with 2018 quickly approaching, this little appetizer will go great with your champagne as the ball drops, but it’s an all around great recipe for all year round. I hope you try it because my husband couldn’t stop raving about it. He actually doesn’t even love the healthy kind of ranch, and prefers the type you buy bottled up at grocery stores filled with additives and vegetable oils. So the fact that he really liked these deviled eggs with none of that harmful stuff makes me so so happy and I think any ranch lover in your life will enjoy these as well!

Ingredients

  • 3 slices thick cut sugar-free bacon, chopped preferably pasture-raised and nitrate free
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/4 cup paleo mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp dried chives
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp dried dill
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Chopped fresh chives for garnish

Instructions

  1. Fry the chopped bacon in a skillet over medium heat until they are browned and crispy, about 5 minutes. Set aside. 

  2. Bring water to a boil in a saucepan.

  3. Take out eggs straight from the fridge, then lower the eggs into the water so they don't break, and let it come to a boil again. Once it does, lower the heat, and let the eggs simmer for 11 minutes

  4. Prepare a large bowl with an ice bath. Once the eggs are done cooking, place them in the ice bath for at least 15 minutes.

  5. Peel the eggs under cold running water.*

  6. Cut the eggs in half lengthwise. Take out the yolks and place in a bowl.

  7. Add paleo mayonnaise, dijon mustard, dill, onion powder, garlic powder, chives, salt, and pepper to the yolks, and then add the bacon bits, reserving about 1 tablespoon to set aside.

  8. Mash with a fork until fully combined and creamy, then fill the egg whites with the mixture evenly.

  9. Garnish with reserved bacon bits and chopped chives. 

  10. Refrigerate about 4 days.

Recipe Notes

*There are many ways to cook hard-boiled eggs, but I found that this method makes the best, easy-to-peel egg without the shell sticking to the whites. If you prefer another method, you can cook it in any way that works best for you!

Lemon Mint Matcha Champagne

Introducing: the very first cocktail recipe on What Great Grandma Ate!

It’s true that I’m not much of a drinker. Ever since suffering from candida overgrowth and having to still go through symptoms now and then, I tend to stay away from alcohol most of the time. However, I do feel left out of imbibing socially now and then, and with Christmas just around the corner, I thought it was a great time to introduce this low sugar cocktail that I love especially with the addition of matcha.

Lemon Mint Matcha Champagne

While I usually don’t indulge in alcohol, I never say no to champagne at weddings, New Year’s Eve, or any kind of celebration. They are so delicious and sparkly, especially when they are dry. So I combined my love for matcha and champagne to make you this Lemon Mint Matcha Champagne.

The result is a subtly sweet and fizzy drink with a hint of matcha to help you feel giddy, while helping you stay up until the ball drops. It’s a fun drink for anytime of the year, but I know I’ll definitely be making this for New Years, and I hope you do too!
