Peppermint Patty "Cookies"

Here's what you need for 3 small "ice cream" kinda "sandwiches":

For the cookies:
3 T. unsweetened almond butter
3 T. cacao unsweetened powder
2 tsp. softened coconut oil
liquid vanilla stevia (no alcohol)-1/2 dropper full
dash cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla extract (no alcohol/no corn syrup)

For the filling:
1/2 small avocado
2 tsp. coconut oil
2 tsp. mint extract (no alcohol)
1/2 tsp. lemon juice

Directions:
Mix softened almond butter and coconut oil with all other cookie ingredients.
Use a regular teaspoon to measure out each cookie and place on a piece of wax paper. Place the cookies in the freezer to firm up.

In the meantime, make the filling. Blend the filling ingredients in a food processor until creamy.

To assemble, place a teaspoon full of peppermint avocado filling between two "cookies". Put the assembled cookies back in the freezer to firm up.

Don't go overboard on the cookies. Be wise with serving size! That's it!

(This recipe should be tweaked until you are feeling well enough to add cacao to your diet)

Raw "Dark" Chocolate Peppermint Avocado Pudding

Prep time: approximately 10 minutes when all ingredients are ready to go.

Clean Up: doesn't get any simpler, one mixing spoon unless you use a blender.

I do not measure anything when I make this but add as I go to my tastes and "dark" refers to how much raw cacao you add. Always organic or the cleanest ingredients I can find or afford.

I usually start with one or two ripe avocados which I scoop out into a glass mixing bowl. I don't have a blender so I mix by hand. After getting it as smooth as possible, then add liquid stevia (Wisdom Naturals SteviaClear), vanilla extract, peppermint extract and a tiny pinch of salt, all to taste and mix well. Next add raw cacao or cocoa (Now Foods has a decent one with no other ingredients) and mix gently until the powder is blended in thoroughly. I usually then pinch open a soft gel of Astaxanthin (a powerful fat soluble anti-oxidant) especially if I've made more than will last a day or two, to help preserve and mix in. Be careful as it is a dye that will stain. Next comes anywhere from 2-4 tablespoons of liquid coconut oil which is thoroughly mixed. Pop the airtight lid on the bowl and into the refrigerator.

A blender will make a much smoother version and you will be surprised how close this tastes to the chocolate pudding we ate growing up only this is a much healthier and nutritious version! Enjoy.

And remember to smile and even laugh in anticipation when making this and even more so when you taste it.
Love adds to the nutritional value! I have that from a Higher Authority.




Coconut Crack Bars
Ingredients
1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut (80g)
1/4 cup agave or pure maple syrup (or 1/4 cup water and 2-3 nunaturals stevia packs). SYRUP NOT ALLOWED ON PROTOCOL
2 tbsp virgin coconut oil (For all substitutions in this recipe, see nutrition link below)
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/8 tsp salt


Instructions
Combine all ingredients in a food processor. (Perhaps you can mix by hand if you don’t have a food processor, but I haven’t tried.) Squish into any small container (I used a 7×5) and fridge for an hour before trying to cut. (Or freeze for 15 minutes.) Can be stored in the fridge or freezer, for at least a few weeks.

These don't hold together too well unless you use a blender. Also I like to melt the coconut oil, stevia, water, and vanilla extract in the microwave to heat out some of the alcohol from the vanilla. I added a melted layer of Lilly's milk chocolate with sea salt and almonds and froze it. It tasted like an almond joy. I found the recipe on chocolatecoveredkatie.com. If you search paleo recipes you can find lots of protocol friendly recipes online, some may need to be tweaked a little and substituted for some ingredients. For example- coconut sugar can be substituted for stevia, regular flour can be substituted with almond flour. Vegetable oil can be substituted with coconut oil, etc.

Grease a baking tray 10” x 7”. Put half the almond and coconut mix into the tray and press down evenly and firmly to make a smooth base. Tip the lemon curd on top of the base and spread evenly.
Scatter the remaining half of the flour mix onto the lemon curd so that it covers evenly and press down lightly.

Almond Cookies 2 ... So good your kids will love them!!

1 organic egg
1 teaspoon vanilla, almond or maple extract
1/4 teaspoon sea salt, if you use salted almond butter omit the salt
1/3 cup xylitol
25 drops liquid stevia
1 cup almond butter or sunbutter OR 1/2 cup almond butter and 1/2 cup sunbutter

Directions
Preheat the oven to 350°
Using an electric mixer or food processor, beat the egg, extract (vanilla, almond or maple) salt, stevia and xylitol. After these ingredients are well incorporated add the almond butter and mix well.
Form balls, about an inch (1 tablespoon of dough), and place on parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Flatten with a fork to make a crisscross design. These cookies will be small.

Bake for 10-12 minutes. This is the most important part! " take the cookies out of the oven and do not touch them. They will fall apart. Let them cool completely and then transfer to an airtight container and store in the refrigerator. This makes them more chewy. These will keep for about a week, if they last that long! You can also make a double batch and freeze them, so you always have a sweet treat on hand.


Coconut Avocado Ice-Cream:

1 1/2 cups organic unsweetened coconut milk
1 cup coconut cream.
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon coconut extract
1/4 teaspoon sea-salt
1 to 2 tablespoons powdered stevia
1 1/2 to 2 large, ripe avocados, peeled & pitted

* Puree all ingredients in a blender until smooth.
* Freeze in counter-top style ice cream machine
until firm and serve. Nice with toasted,
unsweetened coconut on top.

I was skeptical at first when I heard about the avocados . . .in ice-cream? But this comes out like a very thick, rich vanilla ice cream only with the added benefit of having a lovely light green color. You can hardly tell that the avocados are in there. They simply add richness and body but not much flavor. We tried this same recipe only left out the avocados and used pumpkin pulp and pumpkin spice instead. Also delicious!

If you don't have an ice cream machine, you can still just freeze this in a dish in the freezer and then stir every 2 hours or so, finally freezing over-night. It will still come out great, but not quite as smooth. Makes great pop-cycles for kids as well.

Gluten and Sugar-Free Shortbread Cookies

3/4 cup Almond flour
3/4 cup Brown Rice flour
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 Tablespoon powdered Stevia (or to your taste)
8 Tablespoons(one stick)softened organic butter
1 extra-large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon almond extract (optional but delicious!)

Grain-Free Shortbread Cookies

(for those not yet using brown rice in their diets)

1 cup Almond flour
1/2 cup Coconut flour
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 Tablespoon powdered Stevia (or to your taste)
8 Tablespoons(one stick)softened organic butter
1 extra-large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon almond extract (optional but delicious!)
2 Tablespoons water or Almond milk.

Cream butter, extracts and Stevia together. Add egg and mix to incorporate. Fold in dry ingredients until blended. Roll out on surface dusted with Coconut flour. (Coconut flour works best for this purpose). Cut with your favorite shaped cookie cutters and place on cookie sheet sprayed with coconut oil.

Bake for 10-12 minutes (350 degrees) or until the bottom of each cookie is only slightly browned. Cookies are fragile when hot so allow to cool somewhat on the cookie sheet before removing.

Notes:
We tried these with coconut oil in place of butter and they worked out pretty well.
The extra-large or jumbo sized eggs are important. If you have to, use 1 1/2 smaller eggs to equal the larger egg volume.
The subtle differences in the two recipes ( salt, water, etc.) are important and make a big difference in the outcome.
Finding the right Stevia for baking is always a challenge. We liked Pyure brand powdered Stevia best from Whole Foods.
