Blueberry gelatin jelly

1 cup of water
1 cup of frozen blueberries ( or any berries of choice)
2 tsp of gelatin ( I used greatlakes unflavored gelatin)
2 tbsp of sweetener of choice

In a sauce pan boil the water and the blueberries 
Take it out and put in a jar or deep bowl
I used a hand held blender to purée it
If you don't have hand held blender, you can use a regular blender or food processor ( just make sure to process it really good)
Put it back in the saucepan in medium heat and add the sweetener of choice and gelatin
Using wire whisk, mix till the gelatin dissolves.
Transfer in a jar or deep bowl
Cover and let it set in the fridge
When it sets, use a fork to mix it to get the "jelly" "jam" texture
After mixing it using a fork I then transfer it to a jar where I'm going to keep it 
Very yummy!! 
Of course it has gelatin so I suggest always keep it in the fridge, and spread it on top of another spread before putting it on a bread so it won't melt. In my case I spread my peanut butter first then on top of peanut butter I then put the gelatin jelly and not directly to a hot bread.

Paleo dinner roll

1/2 cup and 4 tbsp of coconut flour 
160g of finely grated zucchini ( don't take the water out)
5 tbsp of ground psyllium husk
1/2 cup of water
4 eggs
2 tbsp of Apple cider vinegar
2 tbsp of olive oil
1 1/2 tbsp of dried Italian herbs
1 tsp of sea salt
1 tsp of ground black pepper
1 tbsp of baking powder

Extra olive oil for greasing your hand
And for brushing the bread. Don't forget to brush the dough with olive oil before baking to get the crusty crust.

Preheat oven to 350F
Mix all the dry ingredients first 
Add all the liquid 
Then using an electric mixer mix till it's well combined
Grease your hand with extra olive oil and divide into 8 equal portions 
Shape into a ball and flatten a little
Or shape in any shape you like    (flatbread, burger buns, hotdog buns or even pizza crust)
I also brush some extra olive oil after I'm done shaping just to help with the color of the bread
Baked at 350F for 1 hour and 20-30 minutes cooking time change depending on how big or if it's flatten so please just check it after 1 hour of baking time.
Enjoy with butter in the morning or stew at night.

8 tbsp of almond flour
1/4 cup of almond milk

Toppings of peanut butter
 ( or any nutbutter)
2 tbsp of no added sugar peanut butter

In a microwave cup ( or in a small sauce pan if you don't use microwave) heat the heavy whipping cream with the chocolate till it thickens.
Then add the sweetener of choice, almond milk and almond flour
Mix till it's well combined and then pour in any mold of choice ( I used a small cupcake silicone mold and was able to make 9 servings) 

Then next is for the peanut butter toppings
Heat the almond milk and the peanut butter ( or any nutbutter) till it thickens (almost like a sauce consistency) 
Then just divide in all of molds which has the chocolate part already ( start by putting small amount so you can make sure that every mold will have a peanut butter on top
Cover and put in the freezer till it hardens.

The texture will be like ice cream Popsicle
