Chocolate-Coconut Protein Bites

A little sweet for you “primal’s” out there…  plus, it’s sugar-free and made out of only almond meal, so dig in.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups almond meal
  • 1.5 scoops chocolate protein powder (I used Bluebonnet dual action)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup grapeseed oil
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 4 packets stevia
  • 1/3 – 1/2 cup unsweetened large coconut flakes

Directions:

Preheat your oven to 350.  Mix the dry ingredients (almond meal, protein, baking soda, stevia & salt) in a medium bowl.  In a smaller bowl beat the eggs, and add the Grapeseed oil.  Add the egg mixture to the dry ingredients and mix together.  Add most of the coconut flakes (leave just enough to top the ‘bites’ before baking) and mix.  

Cover your pan with parchment paper & spray with coconut oil.  Scoop the ‘bites’ onto the pan.  Then top them with the remaining coconut flakes.  Makes 12-15 ‘bites’.  Bake for 8-10 minutes (I used a Convection oven, so 8 minutes was plenty).   Your coconut topping should be just browned.

Until next time…

Baking Quiche for Dinner

Or for any other meal… but for me, tonight, it’s going to be Quiche.  Of course sans grains, sans gluten and wheat, made with good ol’ nutritional almond flour and lots of love!

Quiche crust:

  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp fresh rosemary
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/3 cup grapeseed oil
  • 1 tbsp water

Pre-heat oven to 350.  Mix dry ingredients together in a bowl.  Mix the grapeseed oil and water together then add to the dry mix.  Scoop into pie pan and press into the bottom and sides.  Bake for 12-15 minutes.

Quiche filling:

  • 1 cup chopped kale
  • 1 cup mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 yellow pepper (or whatever color you prefer)
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/4 cup ricotta cheese

Saute veggies in Olive oil for about 5-6 minutes.  In another bowl beat eggs & add the ricotta cheese.  Add sautéed veggies to the egg mixture & pour into pie pan.  Cook at 350 for 30-35 minutes and let cool before serving.

Enjoy!

Till next time~
