Would you like to create some amazing Paleo desserts or Paleo Treats? But find that you are having trouble when it comes to baking? Well, I know I did in the beginning when it came to following a Paleo lifestyle. But there are certain things you can do that can help.
Below I offer you a few tips when it comes to Paleo treats baking that should help to make things a lot simpler.
When baking and you use butter made from sunflower seeds the baking soda will cause the goods to turn green. But by adding some acid such as lemon or lime juice, will activate the baking soda. The same also goes for adding sour cream or cream of tartar to the mix. If you want you could use baking powder instead.
Whenever you are cooking with almond flour adding some coconut flour can prove useful. Adding just a couple of tablespoons to the mix can help to improve the structure of the dessert. But you will find that it won’t affect the flavour or texture of it.
In order for any recipe to be a success, you need to find the right balance when combining dry Paleo treats ingredients with fat and liquids. You may find that by combining different flour together the recipe will turn out a lot better.
When creaming the fat and sugar together you are helping to get more air into the batter. Doing this will ensure that batter has a much lighter and fluffier texture. You can cream the fat and sugar together either by hand or with a mixer. Make sure that you do this for several minutes so that you can incorporate as much air into the mixture as possible. If you use coconut oil when baking do not melt it first. This is also the same for butter or ghee. Keep the fat solid and with the sugar even the liquid variety (maple syrup or honey).
If you will use stevia in place of natural sweeteners (maple syrup, palm sugar or honey) be careful. The problem is that unlike natural sweeteners which act as a binder, stevia doesn’t. For example, if you were to replace the maple syrup in a Paleo treats cookie recipe that doesn’t use eggs then you won’t be able to make a dough.
