Paleo Blueberry Coffee Cake

I made this Blueberry Coffee Cake for our Easter Brunch a few weeks ago and it was a big hit with big and small! This recipe is from Elana’s Pantry

It is not very sweet and the almond flour gives it a rich hearty flavor.

Red, White and Blueberry Popsicles

These popsicles were inspired by our favorite summer ingredients – strawberries, blueberries, coconut milk! This is a great project for kids to help with. Getting molds ready, selecting ingredients, sampling the flavors! Have fun! 🙂
