I’ve made these numerous times now after a friend recommended them, and they are fantastic!! I wouldn’t say they’re a healthy substitute to normal/traditional chocolate chip cookies because they’re not quite the same. Rather, I’d say these are in a different category: much more moist, rich with hints of coconut that do not overpower the cookie, and an excellent satiation for the carb- and sugar-wary sweet tooth. Be sure to at least double the recipe because 12 cookies will NOT be enough!
These veggie roll ups are great to make ahead of time, and it’s a good idea to plan snacks into your day, rather than waiting until you get hungry and then frantically making something. Cucumber acts as the roll, and a tomato is the prize inside. Cashews act as a nice filling to help hold it all together, once they get blended up into a sort of paste. Olive oil, garlic, sea salt and basil are all Paleo goodies, so you can feel totally fine by having this as a snack anytime you get hungry and it’s not time for a full meal.
Stop putting pressure on yourself that’s not warranted. You are in a different place emotionally, physically and overall life then when training for Philly. Give yourself and your MIND a break and relish in your being chosen and ability to run this race. You have two great races in your future–NYC and Boston–what an honor!!!! Cookies look awesome. It was just a major bday for my daughter and son so celebrating this weekend. I will be making these! Btw, been meaning to tell you my whole family loves your recipes so they definitely are majorly enjoyed and appreciated by grown up children. Never was able to throw things together so fast and easy and have them taste and look so good. The taco salad is a fav as well as the chicken salad! Your photography has become really pleasing and extremely photogenic. Have a great weekend and rest your mind.
I have been a chef for many years and had to go paleo due to health issues so I felt like I was missing out on cookies! I have to say these were the best choc chip gluten free cookies I have ever eaten felt like I was eating gluten cookies if not better! I followed the recipe to the letter I used unrefined coconut oil but I just wanted to ask what type of coconut oil do you use for this recipe refined or unrefined? Also can you use less coconut sugar? I love them as they are just thought to ask for other people sake some like less sweet things :) thanks a ton for this recipe your a blessing :)
[…] Y’all, I like to cook but I love to bake. More times than not I change recipes to make them my own. I can’t tell you exactly how I change them because oftentimes I don’t remember. I only remember how good they were. My two go-to desserts have been gluten free with no processed sugar. They are made with almond flour and coconut sugar instead. The coconut sugar is surprisingly really good in these recipes. I believe it can act much like brown sugar as its dark in color. It doesn’t give a coconut taste at all and it doesn’t taste like sugar. It’s interesting. It’s low glycemic which is awesome. The two recipes I use are: Chocolate Chip Cookies […]
Roll the dough into 8 (75-gram) balls and place the remaining 1/4 cup (43 grams) of chocolate chips on the top and on the sides of the dough balls. You can also roll them into 16 smaller balls but then you need to adjust the baking time (a few minutes less than recommended below). Place 4" apart on the prepared baking sheet. Press the cookies down lightly with the palm of your hand.
These skittles are made totally with fruit or vegetables and coconut butter. It’s the combination of the fruits and veggies that make them so good. The recipes for all 7 different flavors are included. The ingredients listed above for maroon consist of all the ingredients. The other colors only have the ingredients listed that are not included in the maroon variety. All you need is a good blender and a food dehydrator. Although I have dried fruits in the oven before. The oven is faster but necessarily better. Just turn it on the lowest heat possible. I put links to two different dehydrators because one is way more affordable than the other. I have the cheap one and it works fine. But if you think you might use it a lot it might be worth the investment to get the more expensive one. Since the skittles are dried they can be stored at room temperature for a long time. That makes them handy to keep in your purse or bag for a time. I’ve also been known to freeze. dried foods and they keep just fine for a really long time.
Compared to the diets we traditionally ate, today, most Western diets are deficient in plant-based nutrients. The paleo diet prescribes including a wide variety of vegetables to ensure that your body benefits from the fiber and essential vitamins and minerals that a found in this food group. However, balance is key here. The nutritional makeup of different types of vegetables varies greatly and some options, such as potatoes and squash, have a much poorer nutrition profile compared to the amount of carbs that they contain. Because of this, most paleo dieters generally recommend limiting your intake of starchy vegetables if you’re trying to lose weight.
The paleo diet is based on the principle that if a caveman ate it, so can you. In general, that means that meats, vegetables, fruits, fats, nuts and seeds are on the table while grains, beans, dairy and refined sugars are off. But, in case you don’t have a caveman to call, this list will give you all the information you need to know about which foods to include in the paleo diet and why they’re so good for you. You’ll also find a simple guide to the total protein, fat and carbohydrate content of the listed foods to make it easy to see how they can fit into your daily caloric intake.
They say that low-fat weight-loss diets have proved in clinical trials and real life to be dismal failures, and that on top of it all, the percentage of fat in the American diet has been decreasing for two decades. Our cholesterol levels have been declining, and we have been smoking less, and yet the incidence of heart disease has not declined as would be expected. ”That is very disconcerting,” Willett says. ”It suggests that something else bad is happening.”
Yes, I did it right. Only 3 ingredients. Are you like some people and just pass up plantains in the grocery store? I used to be like that. I didn’t even know what they were. They looked weird and terrible. I don’t think like that anymore since I’ve gotten to know them. You can either choose them when they are on the yellow side or the green color side. The only difference is that the yellow ones are riper and therefore sweeter. The green ones are less ripe and won’t taste as sweet. That choice is just up to your preference. The yellow ones are a little harder to work with because they are more sticky. I do recommend green but you should experiment and have fun. Don’t worry about the skin being brown and a little bruised. The skin on plantains is really thick so the fruit is more protected than with a banana.
These almond flour banana cookies are made with 100% good for you ingredients and have zero added sugar. ← And I'm fully aware that under most circumstances those two statements would not be a cookie selling feature, but these are paleo breakfast cookies so I guessing that if you're here it's because you want a healthy cookie recipe. So let's not try to hide it. These paleo cookies are all the good and healthy things.
It’s easy to get plantains and bananas mixed up. While plantains are part of the banana family and the two look alike, plantains are not sweet, and instead are used mostly as a starchy vegetable. Think of plantain chips as veggie chips. They are often sliced and baked with olive oil and salt, creating a nice crunch. Lots of supermarkets carry different versions of plantain chips, but not all plantain chips are Paleo, so you’ll want to check the ingredients before buying.
The diet focuses on unprocessed, whole foods – healthy fats including saturated fat, grass-fed, free-range meat and eggs, lots of fish and seafood, vegetables, fruit, berries, nuts, seeds and some natural sweeteners. It excludes grains, legumes, processed sugar and most dairy. Some people include healthy dairy foods like kefir, full fat natural yogurt, some aged cheese and butter. That, of course, really depends on your sensitivities. We love this way of eating because it also focuses on local, organic produce and good farming practices.
