Thanks to everyone who visited Twisted Paleo at the Field & Festival Holiday Markets. The Cookie Cups introduced at the market will be added to the website soon.
The Twisted Paleo Cottage Bakery offers Paleo gluten-free baked goods. Some are also Vegan, and all fall under one or more types of a Vegetarian Diet, such as Lacto, Ovo, or Lacto/Ovo.
When they taste my baked goods, the first thing people say is that they don’t taste gluten free. The Paleo diet only allows natural and whole foods that are naturally gluten free. Most gluten-free foods are made with starchy flours like corn, potato, and rice, which are high in carbohydrates.
Paleo bakers use almond, coconut, and other flours that are protein-packed and nutritious. These flours hold moisture well, making Paleo baked goods moister and softer than their gluten-free counterparts.
Gluten-free foods typically contain refined sugars, corn syrup, dairy, artificial colors/flavors, and preservatives. Paleo baked goods do not rely on refined oils or sugars. Instead, they contain healthy fats like avocado, coconut, and olive, and sweeteners like pure maple syrup, raw honey, and coconut sugar. Butter is the only dairy product allowed on Paleo.
Chile Molido Rub
This rub gets its name from the chili powder produced from ground red New Mexico Hatch Chiles. I blend the molido with a collection of spices I toast and freshly grind to produce layers of Southwestern flavor, along with some maple sugar to give it a touch of sweetness.
This rub is available in Mild, Medium, and Hot.
