The 2nd batch I made straight after, I made them flatter/wider so they hopefully harden better once cooled… They look a bit more promising, and this time I got 8 cookies where as the first batch only made 7 and 1 tiny little baby one hehe. Oh I forgot to mention, I didn’t have any chocolate on hand, so instead I added 2 tsp of cocoa powder to make them chocolate!!! YUM!!
They say that low-fat weight-loss diets have proved in clinical trials and real life to be dismal failures, and that on top of it all, the percentage of fat in the American diet has been decreasing for two decades. Our cholesterol levels have been declining, and we have been smoking less, and yet the incidence of heart disease has not declined as would be expected. ”That is very disconcerting,” Willett says. ”It suggests that something else bad is happening.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kyiH1xtmN_w
Hello, a change in diet, eating lower amounts of carbs, and sugars can certainly help the mechanisms, also it should be noted that it is important a back be healthy as well, because the back being the sympathetic, and parasympathetic system controls these functions. So a massage just above the tail bone, as well as strengthening, and alignment can help. (A majority of misalignment, or inflammation is not felt) One should also not underestimate how our bodies are absorbing the foods we eat, and so it is important to use a digestive enzyme (not a cheap one) and a microprobiotic, to try and help balance the system better. I have enough information to write a book on this question alone, however, I hope the straightforwardness of the answer will help 🙂

I just made these for the second time and they were even better!!! I sifted the almond meal/flower and chopped pecans and chocolate chips . .wow. . .they are so so good! A new trick is to measure out the honey in the same tablespoon you just did the coconut oil as it will slide right on out! I doubled the recipe and it made 12 nice size cookies .. next time I’ll triple . .everyone I’ve shared with love them and even my hubby who doesn’t eat my type of Paleo-style of eatin’ .. good eats peeps!
Many of you have tried some version of a stuffed vegetable at your meals such as a tuna-stuffed tomato or beef-stuffed peppers, but there is no reason why you can’t incorporate similar items into your snacks as part of your Paleo plan. By rotating various colorful varieties of vegetables into your snacks, you’ll be fueling your body with loads of vitamins, minerals, and anti-oxidants. Stuffed vegetables can be made into gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free snack options with a little creativity and advance preparation. Definitely not taste-free, glance over some of the recipes listed below and see which one sounds like it might be a tasty addition to your snack rotation:
Cashews are inedible in their natural state and are actually very poisonous if consumed without extensive processing. Also, while subject to debate, cashews are generally considered legumes. Some people accept them as Paleo foods and others do not. It’s up to you to experiment and decide. Cashew milk is further removed from its original form. Remember, it is best to consume food in its natural state. Coconut milk is a much better option if you are looking for a milk substitute.
The fact that vegetable oils are still so prevalent in today’s world is a testament to just how aggressively they’ve been marketed, lobbied, and subsidized. But just because everyone else is using them doesn’t mean you should, and you most definitely shouldn’t if you’re planning on going full paleo (or Primal). The following oils are typically ultra-processed and pro-inflammatory on account of their high levels of omega-6 fatty acids. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aDs5M-i4GOA
No on paleo diet but awesome cookies. My husband’s favorite and kids loved it too. Very crispy cookies. Used 1/2 cup of coconut oil to help it form better. Probably could have used a little less. Kids allergic to almond so used whole wheat pastry flour. Used Agave nectar 6 Tablespoons, added 1 tablespoon of chia seeds and 1 tablespoon of flax seed ground. By the way this is my favorite cookies. Next time I’ll try adding oats.
Also Dairy, an article was published in “Nature” magazine a few years ago, and then later on in other magazines, stated with the latest DNA Technology, and other fancy stuff, they’ve managed to solve a mystery, about a 9.000 year old “Bathtub” kinda looking thing, with small holes in the bottom, which showed that they did consume Dairy, as the “Tub” was to drain of “Lactose”, so they made Cheese!
Rashid – check out my comment below (about the Tanka Bars – the spicy one that I like only has about 250mg or 11%DV – which isn’t too bad for “jerky” type snacks. Low fat and pretty low calorie too). I’m addicted to them! Costco online has the best deal if you buy in bulk. Otherwise, try Ebay, sometimes people sell them there in smaller quantities you can try (maybe Zupan’s or New Season’s Markets or Whole Foods might carry them as well??? – I’m not sure). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C6x5GgSa5j8
Thanks for the suggestions! We loved these so I plan to make another batch and I’ll experiment with the soda. I think I am just sensitive to that taste so pick it up, my husband didn’t at all. Today it was gone so that might be my answer to all things with soda, just wait overnight. Although that will be hard…I tend to try one or three as soon as they are cool enough to hold. I’m trying your double chocolate cookies tomorrow!
This is a classic gingerbread cookie recipe Paleo-style. Yup, you could make these and decorate your tree with them and eat a few too. You could make these and give them away to your friends and neighbors if you do that sort of thing. Whatever you do with them you will have so much fun because you can actually make and eat gingerbread cookies like everyone else now. Yeah, for eating “normal” even when you are on a Paleo diet.
Just tried these. Used 1/3 cup pyure as the sweetener. I LOVED it! The true test was when I offered it to my teenage boys who have been rather skeptical of my recent trend of getting ‘healthy’ on them. I offered them healthy brownies recently and they hated them. They tentatively tried these, and when 3 were inhaled in 5 seconds, I knew I had a winner! Thanks!

These cookies were amazing!!! SO good!!!! I followed exactly using the amount of Swerve you suggested…and instead of the molasses I used 1 Tbs of Splenda brown sugar. When they had been cooking for 14 min I used a spatula and flattened them a bit in the oven and then continued to cook until browned. After they cooled my husband tried one (and I had already snagged one to sample). He loved it too! These are my new favorite cookie!! Thanks!!!
These sweet potato chips do a great job of filling in for regular potato chips. They have the same texture you’re looking for, both as you pick them up and once you put them in your mouth. The sea salt ensures that they’re salty enough to satisfy, and the rosemary gives them a distinct flavor that really plays well with the sweet potato. And of course sweet potatoes bring a lot more to the table in regards to nutrients and fiber, so you’re actually helping yourself along with these rather than with potato chips that will only set you back.
So I’m not one to make my food in football shapes. Or use dye to color my food in my favorite teams colors. Probably because I don’t have a favorite team. But my home states team (the Broncos) are in the Superbowl this year so I’m obligated to act excited. I’d honestly rather just be moving into my new apartment and organizing crap than watching to game. But for social stigmas and reasons, I will be watching to game. Mainly so I can snack on food all day long and it’s not considered binge eating. Thanks, Superbowl. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7h8FavH-Jx4
One part of the Paleo dieting philosophy is to not feel like foods are forbidden, but rather to cut them out because they’re not good for you. This means that all of the pre-packaged snack foods for sale should be trumped by snacks you make for yourself out of natural foods. Luckily Paleo-inspired cooks and chefs have been hard at work coming up with delicious and interesting ways to get your snack on, so enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bNz73Lu0RpU
This means that embracing the Paleo diet means upping the meat ante, but with one major addendum: that meat must be from high quality sources! Quality, in this instance, is synonymous with grass-fed/pasture-raised, organic, free-range, and (ideally) humanely-raised. (Avoid the additives and nitrates of cured meats.) If your budget won’t allow for meats carrying these labels all the time, go for organic and pastured when you can, prioritizing it for fattier cuts and going budget-friendly on leaner varieties.
Alcohol can pump up people but not by being a stimulant. It progressively disconnects the inhibition part of the brain and the short-term memory part, and this leads to disinhibition which FEELS like stimulation. It leads to decreased memory of your day when you drink after work. The depressive aspect and fractured sleep lasts for days or weeks in one’s brain tissue, depending on the unit dose and frequency of dosing. These side effects temporarily overwhelm the liver. Drinking faster than the liver can filter is the effect people are SEEKING WHEEEE ! The body can adjust somewhat so it is harder to kill it, like tolerating starvation or sugar spikes or cardio without weight change. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cwQgjq0mCdE
I did notice if you let them sit they did appear to have that same “look” however I also realized they are a softer cookie. I had a handful of people try them and all but one could not tell they were not your “typical” chocolate chip cookie. If I wouldn’t have told the one they were grain free/dairy free they would have been on board with the rest. I am very pleased with this recipe and although I commented on the issues I had, I would make these again and again! I was looking for a perfect Paleo snack and I think I may have found it. Thank you! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VExW4SNt3Ko
You must double up the recipe because it’s too good not too. Lol I love being gluten free b/c the rest of the family thinks my cookie might be “gross”. More for me! Now, they have requested that I make them and possibly pretend like they are not gluten free and share. But why should i? lol My second batch on week 2 did come together as the first. Almost as it didn’t bind. I’m blaming it on the cold almond meal coming from the fridge this time. It’s in the oven so we will see what happens.
Ideally, if you have a good Paleo breakfast and lunch, you’ll often find you don’t feel hungry and don’t need to snack. If you do find yourself hungry between meals, try eating more at meals (are you consuming enough satiating fat in your meals?). Also, check out the recipe book I've just written with loads of Paleo Breakfast recipes to inspire you.
Place the cookies in the center of the preheated oven and bake until lightly golden brown all over and set all the way to the center (about 14 minutes). Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely on the baking sheet (about 10 minutes). They will become more firm as they cool. Store any leftovers in a sealed container in the refrigerator or freezer.
This sounds great. And sorry if this has already been asked but the Ghiradelli make dairy-free, soy-free chocolate chips? I am completely dairy/soy free and struggle to find the right chocolate (especially since I live in German). I used to buy Enjoy Life, but can’t get that brand shipped here. But if Ghiradelli is dairy free I’ll have to explore that realm. Thanks!
Because humans were hunter-gatherers for hundreds of thousands of years, we evolved to use and favor the diverse plant and rich meat intake of our hunting and foraging history. Farming and its core crops (e.g. grains), by contrast, only came on the scene approximately 10,000 years ago and took at least 8000 of those years to spread across the world. Our evolutionary roots—and residual genetic expectations—favor the nutritional practices of our hunter-gatherer legacy. (For more on the history of the paleo diet, click here.)
