Oh wow, that is all I have to say about this recipe. I want to sit here and write you a novel but to be honest, I would prefer you make this amazingeness instead. I am sitting in Austin at my best friend Abel's house getting ready for PaleoFX. I can't believe it has been a year since I was here last but I love Austin. The weather is amazing this year, no sweating while walking around like last year. It makes exploring so much more fun.
So this recipe is a combination of a few things I have on my website already with some alterations to make it taste amazing. I personally love blueberries, but if you don't, feel free to substitute the fruit. This recipe was only created because I got an amazing new toy in my kitchen and I think it will quickly become the most used appliance I own. I got this on the recommendation of the amazing Nom Nom Paleo and it was the best purchase in a while.
Honestly, I would keep writing for you, but I am sitting in Austin, enjoying one too many paleo cocktails with some nuttella stuffed chocolate chip cookies, Paleo of course ready for bed. If I keep going I am going to incriminate myself but instead I will let you enjoy this recipe. Make sure if you like it, are excited about it, or dream of eating it that you share it because that keeps this page going. I look forward to hearing your comments.
