St. Patty’s Day Baking

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

I decided to do some baking today. Not your ordinary baking though. Thanks to Pinterest, I’ve seen so many fabulous recipes I’ve been longing to try but I haven’t had the proper ingredients because these are Paleo/Gluten-Free recipes. Before I left my parents’ I used their coffee grinder to grind some almonds into flour. We also stopped by Trader Joe’s to pick up some key ingredients.

First I made a healthy version of a Shamrock Shake from Primally Inspired. Even the kids liked it :)

Then the real baking began. Divagirl was my helper and we started with a Black Bean Chocolate Cake from A Tasty Love Story’s blog. I don’t have an electric food processor with us, just a hand cranked one so the beans weren’t very finely mashed. It still tasted yummy, very chocolatey. I froze one loaf for later.
