Even though I love eating paleo/primal, there are times when you really just want something pastry-like, all cheesy and flaky.  Luckily for me, M. Dig is a genius in the kitchen and created this recipe that lets you get your pastry fix while sneaking in all the benefits of yummy kale.  It’s also a perfect recipe for paleo kids, reluctant spouses, and non-paleo guests (perhaps they won’t be non-paleo for long!).



  • 1 stick butter, preferably grass-fed
  • 1 cup of water
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 cup tapioca or arrowroot starch
  • 1 cup of any grated cheese (optional but recommended)
  • 2-3 eggs
  • 1 cup of finely chopped kale


1. Preheat oven to 350 degress.

2. Bring water, butter, and salt to boil in a small pot.

3. Remove from the heat and stir in tapioca or arrowroot starch.

4. Stir in 1 egg at a time

5. Stir in cheese and kale.

5. Grease cupcake pan or baking sheet.

6. Fill each cupcake reservoir  with 1 very full tablespoon of batter or arrange each dollop on the baking sheet at least 1 inch apart.

Bake for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown on top.
