Mocha Energy Bites

I’ve been trying to fit in more protein into my diet. Obviously, this is usually in the form of meatballs. But on this occasion, I decided a sweet bite with some protein powder would work out quite well as a portable snack. Really hits the spot sweet wise… doesn’t really tick the box proteinwise. But tasty nevertheless! Ingredients 72g dates (about 12 dates), pits removed 90g roast almonds 60g vanilla protein powder...

Apple Cinnamon Scones from Civilized Caveman Cooking

I’ve had this recipe up on my screen for a few days now. But the problem was, I had no apples; I ate them all. I know, right? Me, eating apples. It’s unheard of! But I dehydrated about 3 apples with some cinnamon in my lovely dehydrator and promptly ate the entire batch. I suppose there are worse things to pig out on… but still. My eating 3 apples in a day – unheard of! So I got some more apples at the...

Raspberry Cocoa Energy Scones

Yeah, I know. More scones…. This is REALLY similar to the sweet potato tuna scones I made in January. But different. But they came out so well, I decided they deserved their own page. I found a baked sweet potato in the oven this morning. For some bizarre reason I bake 3 sweet potatoes whenever I bake them, and then consequently forget about the last one. So it was nice and well cooked (not burned!) when I discovered it this...

Chocolate Cinnamon Truffles from Civilized Caveman Cooking

The 8 dates that I had left from a previous recipe were just staring at me. What was I going to make with 8 dates? That didn’t involve wrapping them in bacon – which I have to admit, I was tempted to do…. I also read the other day that cacao powder is good for you! Obviously, that doesn’t give me license to eat chocolate bars or anything, but I haven’t really had much cacao powder in a while except what I...

Magic Brownie Bars from PaleOMG

Sometimes I spy a recipe online that I think, wow – I need to try that. But then the next time I go to the supermarket, I forget to get the right ingredients and end up making something else. Or I do get the right ingredients and then forget where I saw the recipe. Sometimes, I forget what I intended to make altogether. Seriously. But the recipe for Magic Brownie Bars from PaleOMG came up on my Facebook feed and it looked so...

Bacon Chocolate Muffins

There is something indescribable about the combination of bacon and chocolate. It either fills you with horror or delight. For me, it’s delight. I’ve made chocolate covered bacon before, so why not have a go at chocolate bacon muffins. I didn’t let the fact that I don’t have any muffin liners stop me. But in hindsight, I should have let that stop me. So, in a case of do as I say and not as I do, let me suggest...

Seedy Spiced Protein Bites

I haven’t had any chocolate in over a month. Seriously. It’s a pretty good record for me, because although I don’t have a sweet tooth, sometimes a li’l bite of energy is something I crave, especially after a session in the gym. But energy bars are kak and full of weird stuff I can’t pronouce. ‘healthy’ bars are full of oats. And regular chocolate bars full of sugar. So this weekend when I was...

Panellets (Paleo-ets) – ‘Traditional’ Catalan All Saints Dessert

Traditional in Catalunya, where I live, and Valencia, panellets are the traditional sweet of All Saints Day. (Which was 1st of November.) In Catalan, panellet means ‘little bread’. They are all over the bakeries and shops here, mostly the traditional ones rolled in pine nuts. But there are countless varieties all based on more or less the same recipe of almond flour, sugar and potato. Well. We know how I feel about sugar...
