Even though I live a fairly healthy lifestyle, the paleo diet never really enticed me. I mean, who wants to give up cheese, pasta and cookies? But as much as I love a big block of cheddah, I also love a challenge, so I turned one of my favorite carb-and-butter-laden meals — brunch — into one fit for a paleo princess.
And guess what, friends — I totally crushed it. I'll admit it was harder than I thought, but I was incredibly surprised by how delicious each thing came out. I didn't miss the cheese, the processed flour or the syrup. In fact, I almost liked these dishes more than their non-paleo counterparts. And if these can change me, imagine what they can do for you.
Spray a large skillet with nonstick cooking spray.
Place the squash in a blender, and blend until smooth and pureed. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, squash puree, honey and vanilla. Add the almond meal, cinnamon, baking soda and a dash of salt to the egg mixture.
Pour the batter, 1/4 cup at a time, onto the hot skillet. Cook until golden brown on both sides, about 10 minutes total.
