Sticky Sesame Cauliflower Wings

Whether or not you watch the Super Bowl, it’s the end of January and, here in New England, we still have two cold ,long months of winter. In Boston, post-holiday winter means sports, bars (and sports bars), skiing and comfort food. Juno is bearing down on us as I type this and, even though I don’t care so much about the outcome of Sunday’s game (go Seahawks), I always enjoy trying healthy game-day alternatives.

These sticky sesame cauliflower wings are a flavorful, addictive alternative to traditional chicken wings liked by both vegans and meat eaters. For other healthy Super Bowl food inspiration, I’ve created a “Game Day Makeovers” Pinterest board, so follow us there.

Classic Vanilla Coconut Flour Paleo Cake

Classic Vanilla Coconut Flour Cake (Paleo & Gluten-Free) | ourfourforks.com

During my winter running hiatus, I developed a new little breakfast obsession: mug-cake. I have to admit, I don’t really like the idea of these things. You mix a bunch of different ingredients in a mug, microwave it, and get this weird insta-cake. It seems very 1980s. Without running, I needed less carbs in the morning so I ditched the oatmeal for these mug-cakes, which I made with a new favorite ingredient: coconut flour. Not only do I like the subtly sweet taste, but it’s gluten-free, low in carbs and high in protein and fiber. Since I’m back to running, I’m back on the oatmeal, but I leave the winter with a place in my heart for baking with coconut flour.

Most paleo or gluten-free cakes use a ton of nut flour, usually almond flour, which can be a bit harsh on the stomach (not to mention extremely high in calories) in such quantities. This classic vanilla coconut flour paleo cake is fluffy, moist, and light. Although it goes perfectly with cashew coconut glaze, it would be great with any sort of icing, jam or spread (I’m thinking definitely healthy nutella).
