For the second day of vegan sweets, I wanted to make a cake. How can I avoid a cake? Before five months, I was believing that wheat flour is so good for health. But after reading all those problems it creates, and advice from our group to stop feeding kids with wheat, I have stopped making anything with wheat or maida for Sruti. I am not a doctor or a nutritionist, so I couldn’t explain you in detail of what harms come by consuming wheat, but if you search the web, I am sure you will find many articles. I know so many of you will not agree, but it is a fact. I don’t mean to bore you with my diet details, but I feel that whatever I learn I need to pass it on to my readers. May be some of you can change your way of life.

Coming to the third day of toasts, I have one more recipe for paleo dieters. The popular peanut butter cannot be consumed in paleo diet as peanuts are non paleo ingredient. But as almonds is a really good alternative, I made this spread using almonds. Usually nuts have a lot of oil in them and so if making flour out of them, you need to be very careful. Otherwise you will end up with an oily mess. But the same oily mess can be made into beautiful butter with the addition of a few more ingredients. Commercially available nut butters have sweeteners in them, but I am doing it sugar free as sugar in any form is a great no no in paleo. To make it to spreadable consistency, usually refined oil is added but being a paleo recipe, I have added coconut oil which gave a really good aroma to the almond butter. The amount of oil added depends upon how spreadable you need your butter to be. Processed almonds are used in the recipe. We are not supposed to consume almonds as it is. You need to soak them for 12 hours, wash and dry and then use in any recipe. Even almond flour is made with processed almonds.
