Healthy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ready for the easiest guilt free cookies you will ever make?

IMG_1438[1]

1 Can (15oz) Chick Peas drained


1 Egg (Flax egg for vegan)

3/4 Cups All Natural Peanut Butter

1 Teaspoon Baking Soda

2 1/2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract

1/2 Cup 72% Dark Chocolate Chips (Enjoy life for my vegan friends)

2 Teaspoons Stevia (optional)

Preheat oven to 350. Prepare baking sheet with parchment paper. Mix all the ingredients in a food processor. If you don’t have a food processor, I recommend blending the chick peas by themselves until you get them as smooth as you can. Then add them and remaining ingredients to a hand mixer or kitchen aid mixer. Mix well. 

Let cool in freezer for 20-30 mins or until dough firms up. 

Roll into 1 inch balls and press them down. I added a few extra chips to the tops of the cookies so they look nicer 🙂 

Bake for 12 mins. Let cool and enjoy!

Clean French Toast with Sauteed Blueberries

These were so incredibly easy! Enjoy your perfectly clean and healthy breakfast 🙂

IMG_1423[1]

You will need:


3 Slices Grain Free/Gluten Free Bread (I used Ezekiel)

2 Organic Free Range Eggs

1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon

2 Tablespoons Unsweetened Almond Milk 

1/2 Cup Blueberries

In a bowl whisk together the eggs, cinnamon and milk. Pour into a flat container big enough to dip your bread. Lay one slice of the grain free bread in the mixture and let sit for at least one minute on each side. While it’s soaking prepare your griddle with coconut oil and medium heat. 

Place the slices of break on the griddle and let them cook until they are golden brown!

Place the blueberries in a small sauce pan and add 2 -3 tablespoons of water. Turn on low heat and let simmer for a few minutes. Crush half of the berries in the pan. Once the water dissolves and all you have is blueberry sauce you can turn off the heat and let it sit until your toast is done. Drizzle over the top of the toast! Enjoy!

Cauliflower Pizza Bites

 IMG_1329[1]

Pizza Sauce:

1 can organic tomato paste (6oz)


6oz water

2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

1 tablespoon dried basil

1 tablespoon dried oregano 

1 tablespoon garlic powder

1/2 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

1/Mi2 tablespoon onion powder

Mix all the ingredients together and it’s that simple 🙂

Cauliflower Crust:

1 medium-large cauliflower head

1/2 cup Parmesan cheese (grated)

1/2 teaspoon dried basil

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1 egg

Toppings:

1/2 cup mozzarella cheese

chopped bell peppers

chopped tomatoes

chopped jalapeno

 

chopped zucchini

Instructions: 

Preheat over to 450. Cut all the florets off and chop them up in small pieces. Put them in a food processor or blender until it looks like rice. 

Put the cauliflower in a microwave safe bowl and cover. Microwave on high for 4 mins. 

This part is tricky if you don’t have the correct straining bag, so when I took the cauliflower out of the microwave I laid a kitchen cloth and some paper towels down. Dump the cauliflower on it and let cool for a couple of mins. 

Once cooled I wrapped the cauliflower in the paper towel and squeezed as much water as I could out of it. I repeated this a few times, every time with dry paper towels. 

In a bowl, mix the cheese and herbs. Add cauliflower and egg. 

Prepare baking sheet with parchment paper and brush with olive oil.

Roll cauliflower into 1 1/2 inch balls and flatten to make mini pizza sized bites. 

Bake for 7 minutes then add sauce and toppings. 

Bake for 6-8 more minutes.

2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract

2 Teaspoons Stevia (optional)

Paleo and never felt better!

I jumped on the paleo band wagon and I have never felt better! Paleo is so basic and so easy once you get the hang of it. 

NOTHING PROCESSED is a good place to start. This means NO GRAINS, NO SUGAR, NO FLOUR-PRIMAL!

That sounded terrifying and way too disciplined but I surprised myself. Turns out I freaking love it! And the I can still have brownies, cookies, cake, pie, bread, crackers, you name it and there is a paleo way to do it! 


Anyway, I am paleo for life! Of course, I have an occasional “processed” cookie. But as long as I keep my sweet tooth under control with some of the recipes I’ve posted, those slip ups are minimal.
