Recipes

Here you can find recipes I refer to in my posts. If I borrowed them from someone else I will provide the direct link to the recipe. Sometimes I borrow recipes then tweak them and make my own. Bare with me because I'm not the best at measuring ingredients. That's the beauty in my cooking though, if it comes out a little different and I still like it then I have a whole new recipe to add to my box! Enjoy!

Paleo Pumpkin Protein Pancakes
Ingredients: vi shake mix, coconut flour, baking soda, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, egg whites, vanilla extract, coconut milk, canned pumpkin


Mix all together: 2 scoops vi shake mix, 1/3 cup coconut flour, 1 tsp baking soda, 2 tsp cinnamon, 1 tbs pumpkin pie spice, 1/3 cup egg whites, 1 tsp vanilla extract, 2 tbs coconut milk, 1 cup canned pumpkin.

Heat a skillet, spray it liberally with cooking spray- I use coconut oil. And have at it! They were pretty great topped with some Kerrygold and 100% pure maple syrup.

This was the consistency.
I made 4 small pancakes at a time. The recipe made 6 or 7 total I think.

Paleo Chicken and Waffles

Ingredients: boneless skinless chicken breast, chicken broth, protein powder, coconut flour, baking soda, sea salt, eggs, coconut milk, coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla extract.

Step 1: Put boneless skinless chicken breast int he crock pot and cook it on low while you're at work. (You can add whatever seasonings you like and instead of water you can cook it in chicken broth too.)


Step 2: Making the Waffles. You can use any protein powder you like. I usually use my Body by Vi shake mix (tastes like cake batter). Here is where I originally got the waffle recipe: Paleomg Mini Chocolate Waffles, however instead of the 1/4 C cocoa powder that's where I put 1/4 C protein powder. I also add all the ingredients to my blender or food processor to make mixing easy.


Lastly, heat the waffle iron, spray with cooking spray or coconut oil in between each waffle and have at it!


Black Bean Quinoa Burgers

Ingredients: black beans, quinoa, active dry yeast, Dijon mustard, taco seasoning, cumin, onion powder, cayenne pepper, salt, pepper.

Step 1: Cook 1 cup quinoa according to package directions and drain/rinse 2 cans of black beans. When the quinoa is cooked, add to the bowl of black beans and mash. (It seems gross, but it's way easier to mash them together with your hands.) Then add the rest of the ingredients to the bowl.1/3 packet of active dry yeast, 2 tbs Dijon mustard, half a packet of taco seasoning, 2 tsp cumin, 2 tsp onion powder, a couple shakes of cayenne pepper (depending on how spicy you like your stuff, I only like a tiny little kick) and a few shakes of salt and pepper. Mix it all together with the mashed up black beans and quinoa. Then make standard burger patties out of the mix. Make sure you mash them into patties well because they fall apart easily.


Step 2: Heat a skillet on med/high heat with coconut oil. Cook the burgers on the stove top for about 4 minutes on each side. Then move them to a cookie sheet and bake in the oven on 350 for about 10 minutes. Let cool completely. Pair with your favorite veggie. SO good! Pretty simple to make in advance, awesome to grab and go for lunches.
