Super Bowl Snacks

Sometimes planning big events or parties is just too stressful to do on your own.  Have no fear, because I put together my favorite Super Bowl snacks that are fast and delicious.  They all pair extremely well together so you can interchange any mixture to design the menu of your choice.  I will give you some of my favorite recommendations and pairings as well.  I am not a big football fan either, so I use it as a day to eat as much delicious food as possible and not move off the couch.  I am looking forward to it again this year.  Well without further blabbing, here are my top 10 favorite super bowl snacks.

CrockPot Pulled Pork

This crock pot pulled pork is my all time favorite recipe.  It requires 5 minutes of prep work and you can make at least 20 different meals or snacks from it.  So what I would do for the Super Bowl or any event?  I would take this pulled pork, stuff it into an already baked sweet potato and top with the lime cilantro coleslaw below.  Make sure you leave me a comment if you make that and share your thoughts :)

Bacon Deviled EggsThese bacon deviled eggs have won me many friends.  I'd like to think people like me for more than my food but I am ok with them using me for bacon.  So these little beauties speak for themselves.  Make a double or triple batch and enjoy with all your friends.

Spicy ChiliThis Spicy Pineapple chili has won multiple awards in a variety of cooking competitions, and it is easy to make.  If you have followed me for a while, you know I loathe dishes which is why I love one pot meals.  For this recipe I would make some loaded sweet potatoes with this chili, bacon, and some green onions.

20120530-AvocadoBurger059These Avocado Stuffed Burgers are my pride and joy.  It is the best recipe I have ever created and it works perfectly for parties or events. Instead of making full size burgers, I would make sliders and top with the filling as a garnish.  Sprinkle some bacon bits on them and you have the perfect finger food.

Mango GuacamoleThis Mango Guacamole is perfect for any event.  I actually don't think gatherings or events should be allowed to happen without guacamole.  It is the best food in the world.  I would stock up on Plantain chips or just dice a ton of veggies to dip in this bowl of heaven.

limecilantrocoleslawThis is the Lime Cilantro Coleslaw I mentioned above using with the crock pot pulled pork.  This delicious dish can stand on it's own or you can serve it with any meat of your choice.  I stated above to put it on top of the pulled pork stuffed in a sweet potato.  Yummy

Pumpkin Butter CupsI obviously can't eat Reese's but I can make my own which is where these Almond Butter Cups come to the rescue.  The recipe I have posted is for delicious Pumpkin Butter but you can also substitute with simple almond butter and get a delicious result.

Bacon Almond Butter BananaThe Elvis favorite, my way, Chocolate Bacon Almond Butter Bananas. These are pretty much self explanatory on how awesome they are so you should make them to impress your guests.  Just make sure you save some for yourself, they will go fast.

PaleoCookies

Everyone loves cookies, and they will love these Double Chocolate Chip Cookies as well.  I am a self proclaimed cookie monster so most people in my life don't get to taste my cookies, I eat them all.  Needless to say, cookies go perfect with every event and meal so enjoy.

PaleoChocolateChipCookiesI saved the best for last with these Macadamia Nut Chocolate Chip Cookies.  This is the best cookie I have ever tasted.  The rich buttery taste of the macadamia nuts shines through pairing perfectly with the delicious melting chocolate.  You will make friends for life sharing these.  I hope you love them. Also, don't forget your Draft Kings Review guide for the big game, too!

I LOVE COOKIES, I LOVE COOKIES, I LOVE COOKIES!!!  I honestly think that may be all I need to write about this recipe.  I have made a pumpkin chocolate chip cookie in the past but I wanted to try a different way to see if I could get them more cookie like, not cake like.  At the speed that these cookies disappeared from my possession I would say that I got a lot closer to nailing it.  Close enough that it is definitely worth posting so you can enjoy this delicious treat now or for your holidays.  Seriously though, who doesn't love pumpkin paired with cold weather and hot coffee?  Actually maybe that is just me because I am at home in Boston and freezing my booty off.  What that really equates to is me running a lot more which could actually be a benefit.

So in California, I park my car and leisurely walk into my house, or the coffee shop, or the gym, or a store.  In Boston, I park my car in the driveway and sprint to the house while a tornado force wind that feels like -25 Degrees tries to stop me from achieving warmth.  When I go to the coffee shop here, I look like a caffeine addict, but in reality I am just ordering two large coffees so both hands stay warm.  I don't drink them both (every time).  When I Crossfit here, I look like a fire-breather because I spend 30 minutes warming up which means getting my core temperature as close to normal as possible as to not develop hypothermia in a workout.  When my workout is finished, people think I am strange because I just keep going.  The truth is I am afraid to stop because my sweat will quickly form into icicles and I will look like Frosty the Snowman.  Dramatic right, it's really not that bad but I have become spoiled living in California :)

I know everyone is in Holiday meal prep mode right now so I won't keep you any longer.  I hope this recipe finds its way on your menu and you and everyone else enjoys every tasty morsel of it.  In case you didn't hear, my app Caveman Feast is now available on Apple and Android so everyone can have it now.  Just click HERE.

I have a confession, I LOVE COOKIES.  I know that may not seem like much of a secret but I love trying to create new cookies that are delicious and everyone loves.  I believe I hit a home run with these.  They are easy to make, cook fast and stay nice and soft.  The level of joy that shoots through my body when I taste that first bite of melting chocolate paired with the hint of sea salt just throws me in an entirely new happy place.  Wow, that was a really sensual description of my first bite, good thing I didn't take any video of it.  Honestly though, I am so excited to read your comments and see what flavors you have added and who you tricked with these beautiful cookies.  Just a reminder, I love reading your comments but sometimes I know other prefer different social platforms like Instagram.  If you are in the kitchen, making or eating these, please take a picture or video and tag my page so I can see.  See that picture below?  Want to eat it don't you?  It is only 20 minutes away so get to cooking.

Before you make these delicious cookies, I have a secret to tell you.  My app is being released on July 23rd, 2013.  Set your alarms, reminders, calenders or put a sticky note on your forehead; just don't forget.  We are going to do an initial launch price of $0.99 for over 200 Paleo Recipes.  If you don't want to remember, have no fear, subscribe to my newsletter and I will shoot an email out letting you know that day.  I know this may sound bias, but I have had the app on my phone for a week and I open it all day because it is honestly breathtaking.  The navigation is so simple, photos for every recipe, and options to save it or email it to friends.  It is so much easier than having my computer in the kitchen to make my own recipes.  EEEEEK, I am so excited.

Are you as excited as I am?  I hope so.  I am just overwhelmed with awesome ideas to keep updating it and sending out to continue to make your Paleo cooking journey as simple and delicious as possible.  Do you have any ideas?  If so, leave me a comment and I will let you know if we have them in the app or I will take note and work on them.

So we made a mistake.  We forgot to post a recipe on Sunday and it wasn't on purpose.  We were just spending an excessive amount of time away from the computer eating delicious food and making great memories with some friends.  It really felt great to unplug a bit and we plan on doing it more.  We will just plan better so you can have the normal deliciousness delivered anyways.

So, it was a great time with lots of great friends but now it's back to the gym and eating clean for a while.  Why? Because we ate a few too many “Paleo” treats and are now in a sugar coma.

“Like what?”  you may ask. Well, how about the ridiculously amazing Vanessa from Clean Eating with a Dirty Mind hand-delivered her Paleo “Reese's” Cheesecake with Fauxreo Crust and it was STUPID!!! And by stupid, we mean the most delicious thing we have ever ingested, which is why we had about half of it.  Vanessa = Evil Genius you should go check out.

So, we'll now get to the main point of this blog. In short, we get asked all the time about what people can make or eat for breakfast besides eggs that they can grab and go. 

That honestly sounds like a tall order now that we have read over it but have no fear.  We normally tell people to make our banana bread and freeze it, make it into pancakes and freeze them, or even make waffles out of them to grab, toast and go.  We normally don't eat breakfast, but when we do, it is bulletproof coffee and now we have something to dip in it!

These cookies are simple and easy to make in advance.  Throw some almond butter between them and make a sandwich but don't be mad at us when you get addicted.  We won't keep you anymore, go get your bake on and enjoy.

These cookies are supposed to be chewy and cake-like as that is what we were going for. Your batter will be slightly runny but will still bake.

Holy moly what a week it has been.  I walked into work on Friday having no idea when my last day of work as a United States Marine would be, and I left Friday afternoon knowing I would never have to wear the uniform again.  From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank each and everyone of you who have responded to my Facebook posts, emails, and Instagram posts about my separation for all your kind words of encouragement and support.  It is really a tough pill to swallow changing cold turkey from a career and lifestyle you have lived for 12 years to the exact opposite, but I can tell you I am saving a boat load of money on razors.  I haven't shaved once since I left work and operation caveman is in full effect.  I will post some status pictures for you soon, but unfortunately I do have to shave one more time on May 20th to go pick up my DD-214 which will prove my end of service.  Oh well, we can get a nice 30 day caveman preview before then.  So anyways, I added the contribute button back to my site on the right sidebar in case anyone is feeling thankful for anything my site has provided you (and I received a few emails telling me I need to put it back up since people appreciate me and want to show me by supporting me).  So once again thank you.  I feel like I could write thank you out thousands of times and it would never show my true level of appreciation for all you awesome readers.PumpkinCookies

So I am sure you are sick of my blabbing and sappiness by now so we can get to the recipe.  Truth is, most of you already scrolled down anyways so I hope you love this recipe.  I purposely made this to have a cake like consistency because I am experimenting with making whoopee pies out of them.  Is your interest peaked?  If you want me to continue to work on those and get a recipe, just leave me a comment letting me know and I will see what I can do.  Oh and I am sure I am going to get 15 comments or so asking if anyone can sub the coconut flour in this one, and the answer is no.  You need it in this recipe to absorb all the moisture and give it the consistency I achieved.

PumpkinCookies

No more talking, just recipe time.  I just didn't feel like leaving two pictures in a row without something breaking them up. So that is the point of this pointless section of words.  Haha, no for real go make this and enjoy.  Have an awesome day.

  • Preheat oven to 375 Degrees Fahrenheit
  • Combine your pumpkin, coconut oil, eggs, vanilla and honey in a stand mixer or large mixing bowl and mix well
  • Sift the coconut flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and baking powder together
  • Add the sifted flour and spices to the pumpkin puree and mix well until all clumps are gone

  • Scoop out your cookies in a large tablespoon onto a parchment lined baking sheet

Notes

If you can not buy gluten free baking powder, you can make it yourself. You just combine 1 teaspoon baking soda to 2 teaspoons cream of tartar. You have to use it right away as it won't store without the cornstarch.

So now onto this delicious recipe.  I mean right from the start, you could never go wrong with this list of ingredients.  Macadamia nuts and chocolate chips, YES PLEASE.  That is a guilty pleasure of mine.  You can often find me hiding in a corner scarfing down handfuls of Macadamia Nuts and enjoy life chocolate chips.  Oh my mouth is watering just thinking about it, glad I have no chocolate chips in the house and I am going to change the subject now so I don't drive to the store.  So yes, you should just go ahead and make this recipe before you eat all your ingredients which is apparently something I might have a problem with.

I have to be honest, I am fresh out of anything to talk about, but I really just don't like blank space.  I think I can get used to it for the rest of this recipe though.  My hopes are that you at least like the photos more than my horrible grammatical errors and spelling mistakes.  I hope you love this recipe and make sure you let me know once you make it.

Ok I have two important things to cover before the recipe.  First, this recipe tastes amazing because of the amazing Macadamia nuts I get right up the street from my awesome friend Rina at Cali Mac Nut Company.  She provided me with these delicious nuts plus gave me the recipe that I just made a few minor adjustments too.  Second, I have not tried this recipe with any nut butter besides Macadamia.  I have no idea if it will work with almond, coconut, sunflower seed or any other butter you can make.  It might but I am not sure.

If you couldn't tell, I tried to get all cutesy with the photos.  I don't know if I succeeded because I didn't really have a stand out favorite.  They aren't the worst photos I have ever taken but I was having a creativity block when it came to styling.  I hope they look good enough to get your mouth watering.  Just so you know, the gorgeous drops of sweetness on the below photo is some honey I drizzled on the cookies.  You don't need it but I was in a sweet moment.

Macadamia Nut Apple Cookies

So I won't keep you much longer, but I have to just remind everyone that PaleoFX is coming up and if you are going, I can not wait to meet you.  I love Austin and had a great time last year.  I want to meet so many more faces this year, just don't come to my cooking demo since I don't know what I am doing haha.  Just kidding but if you are going, please come find me so I can give you a hug and say thank you.

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit

  • Dust your work surface with almond flour and lay your dough out, pressing to just shy of ½ inch thick all around

Wow, so what a week it has been already.  As most of you know, I am normally not one to complain, but there might be some eeeekkksss or ooooohhhhss while I type this post.  As amazing of a week as it has been, with the launch of my Ebook with The Fat Burning Man (which you can check out by clicking above), it didn't end so lovely.  I was unfortunately involved in a car accident courtesy of the awesome people in front of me that were texting and driving and not paying attention.  They slammed on their brakes going from 50 to 0 and I was left with the decision to either hit them or go curb hopping.  I chose the curb which had the lovely result of smashing my head into my drivers side window while I used the side of the other car to slow me down.  To make a long story short, I am ok besides being angry for being at fault for someone else's negligence with their cell phone.  I had x-rays and all that jazz done, and I just have a horrible case of whiplash.  Actually, I would probably get hit by the doctor for sitting here typing this, but I am stir crazy not being able to do much.  Luckily, I had this recipe waiting to share with you and all I had to do was type and share.  Without further adieu, I bring you these yummy Macadamia Thumbprint Cookies from the new Paleo cookbook.

When I got my review copy of Paleo Indulgences in the mail, I did what any excited 29 year old male, who has the excitement of a 2 year old would do, I ripped open the package in the driveway and stood there flipping through the pages. Never mind the fact that my car was still running, but hey, at least I remembered to put the e-brake on so it didn't roll away.  Needless to say, I was thoroughly impressed with what I was seeing and I was super excited to dig in.  I flipped through all the pages in search of something quick to whip up for a friends birthday in a few hours that required little effort.  That is when these beauties graced my vision, and it was a winning selection.  I mean it was easy for me since I am a complete closet macadamia nut addict. It would be wrong to cheat myself of my addiction.  To ensure I didn't devour the whole batch, I convinced myself I was making them as a birthday present to my awesome friend Meg, and that kept me in check.  In the end, 11 cookies got delivered, which is good considering there were only 12.  I feel like someone should give me a medal for showing so much self control.

So I know you are reading this on the internet and you don't know how much time has elapsed since I typed that paragraph above, so I will just tell you: about 14 hours.  Why you ask, well because I had to take a muscle relaxer to sleep after the car accident and I am pretty sure it zombiefied me.  Yes I am aware that ZOMBIEFIED is not technically a word, but it is now because its my blog haha.  So yea, I can't wait to not be in pain anymore because this cloudy feeling taking over my head is not fun.  I think I have thought of a genius way to fix it though, I am going to make more amazing desserts and absorb the meds.  Scientifically I know that is not possible, but my fat kid genes convinced me it was, so I will do it.  With that being said, one more paragraph and I am off to cook and get Paleo Fat.

So this whole post was supposed to be dedicated to a book review of Paleo Indulgences, which it partially is but my brain is just not working correctly.  And you all thought my ADD was bad before, this one brought it to a whole new level.  But seriously, this book is awesome.  There are so many indulgences that I can't wait to dive in to and use for anything from birthday parties, fight nights, holiday dinner tables, etc.  And just so you know, this book is not just limited to “Desserts” It also has a section for restaurant remakes with pancakes as well as amazing recipes like BACON DIP.  Yes BACON dip, you read that correctly.  I will forewarn you though, if you are like me and can not tolerate any dairy, there will be a few recipes you can not make as described but you can always substitute.  But if you can, then you're in business and can go bat-crap-crazy.  With that being said, I won't keep you any longer. Buy the book by clicking on the image below and then ENJOY.

Author George Bryant

Instructions

Thumbprints

  • Place the macadamia nuts in a food processor and pulse into a coarse meal but not so much to make butter
  • Add the coconut, vanilla, coconut oil, maple syrup, and orange zest (optional) and pulse until well combined, about 30 seconds
  • Scoop rounded tablespoons of dough onto a waxed-paper lined baking sheet
  • Press your thumb into each ball to create a well. If the dough is too soft, refrigerate for 15 minutes or until the cookies firm up
  • Set aside, then top with ganache, and refrigerate for at least an hour

Chocolate Ganache

  • Combine the coconut oil, maple syrup, cocoa powder, palm shortening and arrowroot starch in a small mixing bowl
  • Whip with a hand mixer until smooth and fluffy
  • Store in the refrigerator if not using right away; soften at room temperature before using

Notes

*Store cookies in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks or in the freezer for 3 months *You do not have to use the chocolate ganache, feel free to get creative with the filling with your favorite homemade chocolates or jams *And just so you know, the chocolates in the picture are just melted enjoy life chocolate chips poured into candy molds instead of the chocolate ganache.
