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…

A Primal Pie Crust & Apple Filling!

by, Ann@74 @flickr.com

It’s a winner.  Looking for a way to make your pie and eat it too?  Here is a purely primal option that I made for christmas morning.

Pie Crust:

Preheat oven to 350.  In a cuisinart grind:

  • 2 1/2 cups pecans
  • Add 1 tsp cinnamin,
  • 1 tsp nutmeg,
  • 1 tsp ground cloves
  • and 1/4 cup ginger (chopped).
  • Pour in 4 tbsp melted unsalted butter
  • and 1/4 cup stevia; mix.

Press into pie pan and let cool in refrigerator for 1/2 hour.  After chilled, bake for 12-15 minutes in your pre-heated oven.  Let crust cool completely.  Fill with your choice of pie filling and bake as you would ordinarily.

ready for baking...

Apple Filling:

Preheat oven to 325.  Peel 12 medium sized Granny Smith apples, slice (either by hand or with a food processor).  In a seperate bowl combine:

  • 1/4 cup stevia
  • juice from 1/2 lemon
  • 2 tbsp almond flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamin
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp ground clove
  • 2 tsp lemon zest

As you fill your pie plate, layer the sliced apples, above mixture and dot with butter.  Once you filled your pie, spread melted butter on top.  Cover pie with aluminum foil and bake for 1:15.  Bake at 325 for 60 minutes.  Uncover pie and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes at 375.

Cool and serve with whipped cream (made with stevia, vanilla and heavy whipping cream) or top with some honey sweetened Fage.

Enjoy and Happy Holidays!

Till next time, be well,

Erin
