Elana are you out there???? You are a life saver!!!

There is nothing better than finding a needle in a haystack!!! I have come across Elana's Pantry here and there, but didn't navagate her site fully so didn't fully appreciate the gems provided! I have come to find out that there are no wheels out there that are exactly what I need for my kids' diets. Paleo usually has nuts, eggs and coconut. Gluten free is all rice, corn and god knows what other kind of flours lol. Until now, I decided to delve into Elana's Pantry a little further to see what kinds of things she keeps in there that I could borrow and maybe do some substitutions with for baking. She has AWESOME ideas many are readily tweakable for J and M. She mostly uses Almond and Coconut flour which can basically be substituted with oat flour part for part. I made her cinnamon bun muffins tonight sans cream cheese frosting and they were AMAZING!!! Obviously I had to sub the eggs, flour and coconut. But they were so delicious and enjoyed by all of us! The only thing I need to change is the grape seed oil. J had a mild reaction to that I believe, but that shouldn't be that big of a deal. I have many other of her recipes ear marked for the future. I can not wait to try making the chocolate sorbet!!!

I posted my tweaks to her recipe under pages :) I called them Oatmeal Cinnamon Apple Muffins.
