Paleo Cream Puffs Recipe (1)

Though my baking skills stop at chocolate chip cookies and whoopie pies, Naomi's cream puffs are enough to make me preheat the oven and start mixing. Oh, and did we mention these puppies are grain-free and can easily be dairy-free? Cream puffs for all! ~Emily

Cream puffs are one of those desserts that seem intimidating to make but are actually quite easy.Due to the eggs, the balls of dough seem to rise magically in the oven, creating a ‘cave' in the center perfect for any number of delicious fillings.

This is a paleo version of the cream puffs recipe, using arrowroot in place of flour, to make a dessert that is delicious without compromising on ingredients.

Cream puffs are rich, but not very sweet (or rather, as sweet as you would like) and can be filled with just about anything.

I tend to go for the easy filling of whipped cream or coconut whipped cream sweetened with maple syrup, but you can fill them with pastry cream, jams or fruit butters, lemon curd, chocolate sauce, even ice cream.

You are only limited by your imagination. A recent winning combination was a teaspoon of chocolate sauce with a whole lot of whipped cream.

Paleo cream puffingredients

  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil (or butter)
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup arrowroot powder – Buy this arrowroot in bulk to save $
  • 4 eggs, from pasture-raised hens
  • filling of choice, like whipped (coconut) cream

Paleo cream puffmethod

  1. Preheat oven to 425F.
  2. Combine water, coconut oil (or butter, if you can eat it, and which gives the bestflavor), and salt in a small pot and bring to a boil.
  3. Add arrowroot powder and stir quickly until the dough forms a ‘blob' and pulls away from the sides of the pan. Remove from heat.
  4. Add eggs one at a time, beat. When you add the egg it will seem separate from the dough, but will incorporate into the dough with enough mixing.
  5. Pipe dough through a plastic bag with a hole cut into a corner or use a spoon to dollop balls of dough onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake for 30 min. The puffs should look dry and not at all moist.
  6. Allow to cool. When cool, cut off the top not quite through, and fill with desired filling (whipped cream, coconut whipped cream, pastry cream, lemon curd, chocolate sauce, jam, etc).

With what will you fill your paleo cream puffs?

The closest Naomi has gotten to her dream farm is growing live bacteria injars and wrangling her four children, including twins. A Canadian who now lives in Slovakia, Naomi writes about traditions, food, and life in Slovakia (as well as some pretty strange food) at Almost Bananas.
