Cakes and sweets make a lovely treat, but most of us can do without a hypoglycaemic attack of the shakes caused by eating sugar on an empty stomach. These recipes are high in animal protein rather than empty calories from sugar and carbohydrates. This means that they will keep you fuller for longer, and maintain stable blood sugar levels. They are all free from gluten and dairy, and suitable for a Paleo diet. As they are designed to be made ahead of time, they make ideal starters when you have company for dinner.
