Paleo Almond Mug Cake

I saw the idea for a peanut butter mug cake so I decided to run with that and modify it to a nice grain free and gluten free mug cake. The chocolate chips are optional but I'm a choco-holic so for me they are necessary!

Paleo Almond Mug Cake

1 egg
1 tbsp ghee
1 tbsp maple syrup
1/4 tsp baking soda
1.5 tsp coconut flour
2 tbsp almond butter
Splash vanilla
2 tbsp chocolate chips

Mix together all of the ingredients, microwave 1-2 minutes depending on microwave strength. Serve warm and enjoy!!

Paleo Crab Cake and Steak

This recipe was created because we were short on steak meat but had a can of crab meat. The meat I bought came in a one pound can that needed to be refrigerated. If you can get fresh, please do. As for the steak...chose your favorite cut, sprinkle with sea salt liberally, then grill it to your liking. Top with a crab cake and some of the yummy sauce. For the mayo, I recommend everyday paleo's recipe and video tutorial.

Paleo Crab Cake

1 lbs crab meat
1 egg, beaten
2 tbsp mayo
1 tsp dry mustard

1/2 tsp coconut aminos

1/2 tsp lemon juice
Hot sauce (optional)
1/4 tsp balsamic vinegar
3/4 cup almond flour

Mix all of the ingredients. Grease pan with fat of choice. Heat over medium heat. Form patties out of mixture and cook in pan until brown. Then flip and continue cooking until browned. Serve over steak with sauce on top.
