Almond Butter Fudge

Desserts, Paleo, Vegan

Ingredients

½ cup cocoa butter

¼ cup coconut oil

½ cup roasted almond butter

3 Tbs pure maple syrup

Line a loaf tin with baking paper, allowing the paper to hang over the edges so you can easily lift the fudge out later.

In a small saucepan, melt the cocoa butter over low heat until melted through. Add the coconut oil and continue stirring gently until melted.

Remove from heat and add the almond butter and maple syrup. Give a good stir until well incorporated.

Pour mixture into the prepared tin and place in the fridge for a couple of hours until set.

Remove from the tin by gently lifting the paper up and out. Place on a cutting board and cut into squares using a large sharp knife.

Store in the fridge in an airtight container.

Chicken Nuggets

Nut Free, Paleo

Ingredients

500g chicken breast
2 Tbs tapioca starch
1 egg
1/2 cup coconut flour
sea salt
3 Tbs coconut oil

Method

Cut the chicken breast into pieces about 2-3cm in size. Place the chicken and tapioca starch into a freezer bag, seal the bag with your hand and give a good shake to coat.

Prepare 2 bowls side by side. Gently beat the egg in the first bowl. In the second bowl, combine the coconut flour and sea salt.

One piece at a time, dip the chicken pieces into the egg, drain gently and then coat in the coconut flour mixture. Set coated pieces aside on a plate until all chicken is coated.

Heat coconut oil in a frypan over medium heat. Once oil is hot, place chicken pieces in the oil and fry for 2-3 minutes on each side. They should be a golden brown colour once they are ready. Remove and drain on paper towel and repeat until all chicken is cooked.

Serve with paleo mayonnaise for dipping.
