I love the Italian cuisine – obvious, I lived nearly all my life in this country. And additionally I worked for a long time in a pastry shop. Well that is long time ago and definitely BEFORE I got paleo.
Now I still like cookies and cakes if they are not complicated and not too sweet. Which is nearly impossible when paleo.
I few days ago I ‘stumbled’ upon a typical Italian cookie: buoni ma brutti (good but ugly). And the recipe is sooo easy that in a few minutes I got them into the oven and half an hour later they were ready.
I brought them when visiting some friends. They immediately said the cookies seem to be ‘buoni ma brutti’ but why do I bring some typical Italian cookies when I am paleo? Well, these ARE paleo.
The original recipe is made with hazelnut flour as far as I know (or roughly blended toasted hazelnuts) and already paleo. I don’t like hazelnuts too much and used instead almonds only. A few days later I had a whole batch for myself!
Try them and enjoy the faces of the others!
