I'm a Christian wife & homeschooling mama, saved by faith through grace. I changed my family's diet from SAD (Standard American Diet) to healthy, delicious & nutritious traditional foods. I've recently discovered there's a name for the way that I eat. It's called Primal or Paleo (I like the diet and think of the men and women who worked hard from sunup to sundown, constantly on the go, eating meat, berries they picked, cheese they made. I do not believe in evolution). No grains, legumes, refined sugars, and no/limited dairy.

Almond Joy Mounds Candies - done healthy!

I thought I had blogged this a long time ago. I took a picture, but apparently, forgot to put it in a post, lol.
So here ya go. As soon as my coconut oil comes in (backordered, darn!), I plan on making some. I should probably get some almonds. I think I will use almond slivers when I make these again.

If you're corn free, make sure you have a corn free Vanilla, I used Flavorganics from Azure Standard. I skipped the almond extract, because I don't have any, and I didn't miss it. Of course, I wouldn't know what I'm missing, since I haven't meade them with it...
I got the recipe from the The Nourishing Gourmet, and she has so many wonderful recipes, do check the site out and see what you can find!

See? Obviously delicious :D


  1. saw your comment about the vanilla and thought i would share this post about making your own. i'm making some right now!

  2. The problem with vodka is finding one that isn't made with corn. I looked and looked, but could not find one. I hadn't made it to a liquor store, so if I have to take corn out again, I'll definitely find it somewhere
