2 cups Almond Butter
- In a food processor or high speed blender, run machine for about 5-15 minutes until desired smoothness is achieved
2 cups Almond Butter
2 cups Walnuts
2 1/2 cups Medjool Dates*
1 cup Cocoa Powder
1 cup Raw Almonds (chopped)
1 tsp Himalayan Pink Salt (coarse)
*You may need extra dates if your mixture is not sticky enough to hold together to form balls. Also, you may need extra to use to sweeten if their taste is too bitter.
*I used a Cuisinart to chop my almonds
*Whenever you need an energy boost, grab your tasty creations. They are perfect for when you are in a rush. These energy bites provide you with an extra boost because they are high in carbohydrates from the dates. The salt will help replenish your electrolytes after sweating. The walnuts and almonds will give you the needed protein to help muscle development.
1/3 Cup Raw Pecans*
1/3 Cup Raw Walnuts*
1/3 Cup Raw Almonds *
1 Cup Old-Fashioned Oats
1/3 cup Puffed Kumat Cereal*
1/3 Cup Raisins
1/3 Cup Toasted, Unsweetened Coconut Flakes
1/3 Cup Chocolate (I used 100% chocolate)
2 Tbsp Coconut Oil
2 Tbsp Honey
1 Tsp Apple Spice
*If you do not want to take the time to roast your own pecans, walnuts, and almonds, simply buy the toasted version from the store. While this is a speedier approach to this recipe, roasted nuts are often salted. As a result, it will change the flavor of the original recipe.
*You may also use puffed rice. I actually meant to use puffed rice but accidentally purchased puffed Kumat. Actually, I didn’t even realize my mistake until I was reading the Nutirion Label. While I purchased the wrong ingredient, I believe it still tastes delicious!
To enjoy your delicious creation, you may top a bowl of yogurt or fruit. Also, you could simple eat it like cereal with your choice of milk (dairy, coconut, cashew, etc.).
1.5 cup sweet potato puree*
1/4 cup coconut flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
6 tablespoons almond butter (Homemade Almond Butter)
1/4 cup melted coconut oil
1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
*To lower costs, cook your own sweet potato instead of buying canned puree. Check out this link to learn how to bake the perfect sweet potato: How to Bake a Sweet Potato
2 green plantains
Coconut oil (to fry)
Salt to taste
1. Peel plantains
2. Slice into thin, 1/4 inch chips and lightly salt them
3. Heat oil in sauce pan
4. Carefully slide, do not drop, chips into hot oil. The chips should not be completely submerged in the oil but he half-way submerged
5. Periodically flip chips, so they do burn. Continue until your chips have reached a golden brown.
6. Remove from oil, place on a plate, and allow them to cool for the oil on them is VERY hot
