So my boyfriend is the kind of person we all love to hate. Although he mainly eats incredibly clean, whole foods, he eats a lot. Like A LOT! Like 4000 calories a lot. Jeesh! Hate him. Anyways, due to this bonfire metabolism of his, he needs to be constantly snaking on something which I have taken a personal challenge. I make three different bites a week, all delicious, and all paleo. These are pretty amazing. We’ve given them out at the box and people never believe that they are paleo and that it didn’t take forever to make them. Here’s the recipe:
So first, 1 cup of shelled pistachios (I put them in the food processor first so that the pieces aren’t as huge), ½ cup of coconut flakes, and ¼ cup of almond flour.
Next, ½ cup of cocoa powder, ⅓ cup of almond butter, ⅓ cup of honey, and ½ tsp of vanilla extract. Let me clarify what I said earlier; these are paleo and contain whole food ingredients, they are not by any means low-cal or low-carb or low-anything. Between the coconut, the cocoa powder, and the honey, they have a good bit calories which is why he only eats three bites a day.
Just mixing the ingredients thoroughly which I prefer to do by hand. More therapeutic that way. Also I don’t own a mixer, whatever.
Finally, I weight out 1 ounce and then roll it into a nice, little ball. These are perfectly bite bsized and easy to take on the go.
Bag ’em up, put them in the fridge, and the boyfriend
you’re jealous of you love has plenty to snack on through-out the week.
