It’s a JAMBEREE in Our Kitchen: Simple, Healthy Paleo Recipes

May 1, 2012 11 Comments | Disclosure

You asked for a few of our recipes and we will oblige. But 1st we’re going to answer a few more pressing questions:

  • Yes, I’m wearing a pencil in my hair. It’s a Dora the Explorer pencil to be exact and therefore is very stylish. It’s what all the hip kids are doing these days (especially if they are too lazy/busy to do their hair).
  • We’re in Joey’s kitchen. We typically tape at Joey’s house because I live out in the middle of nowhere. So you can pretty much blame Joey for that obnoxious oven beep. Something about the kids don’t care that we’re taping and still demand lunch. I know, right? Don’t they know who we are?
  • Yes, Joey will teach you her rad dance moves. Her stage name is Jammin’ Joey, so there’s definitely more where that came from. You’ll just have to come back for more.
  • Yes, we always wear dark colors apparently. Something about the camera adding 10 pounds or some such nonsense. We aren’t always coming back from a funeral (good thing too, cause I don’t think funeral attendees would think a pen in the hair is appropriate attire).

And now for a few of our favorite treats…

Amber’s Scrumptious Trail Mix Recipe:

Some raisins
Some almonds (raw or dry roasted)
Some sunflower seeds (raw or dry roasted)
Some unsweetened coconut flakes
A handful of any other delicious thing you can think of (dried cherries, pistachios, chocolate chips {non-dairy and at least 85% cacao}, dates)

Stir and enjoy!

Banana {Blueberry} Coconut Muffins

1 cup coconut flour
6 eggs
2 ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cup blueberries (I added this, but they are still delish w/out!)
4 T coconut oil
2 T coconut milk
4 T honey
1 t baking powder
1 t vanilla
1/8 t salt

Mix flour and baking powder together & set aside. In bowl or mixer, slowly beat eggs. Then add all remaining ingredients with the exception of the dry ingredients and the bananas. Once all other ingredients are well incorporated, add flour mixture and bananas. Blend well. Grease 12 muffin cups w/ coconut oil. Fill muffin cups w/ batter. Bake for 20 min at 350 degrees.

Enjoy!

Next week we’ll share Joey’s top secret ground beef jerky recipe and we’ll also talk about some ways to substitute and make recipes Paleo and gluten-free! It will give you time order this Nesco Food Dehydrator to make your jerky with:
Until next time…

  1. I love this! Even though I’m not doing the Paleo thing, I find your videos HIGHLY entertaining… it’s like they’re MAGICAL!

  2. The muffins sound great but I don’t eat eggs because they don’t like me. If only I could figure out a replacement…
    Where can you buy coconut flour? I recently found a coconut milk FROSTING that is to die for. You could use coconut sugar or are you not eating any sugar? Thanks for sharing!

    • Trying to avoid sugar for the most part. I’m not sure if you could use an egg substitute? Might bake up funny. I’ve found coconut flour at Winco, Fred Meyer, Rosauers, Whole Foods and many places online. And I’ve had a few coconut milk frostings and have to agree. YUMMY!

    • @mh–try using almond butter as the “glue” in your recipes. I’ve seen a lot of paleo sites use it to replace eggs. You will have to toy with the amounts–for this recipe, I’d start with 1/2 cup (ish). And add a tsp of baking soda to help with “light and fluffiness”.

      I bought my coconut flour at the Natural Grocers here in town, but vitacost is running a deal right now, where you get $10.00 off an order of $24 or more, plus their prices are killer for this type of stuff. You can get more information here: http://fabulesslyfrugal.com/2012/04/vitacost-free-shipping-and-free-10-credit.html

      The free shipping promotion has ended, but the $10 off is still going on!

      • This is what I use to replace eggs in recipes:

        To replace one egg:
        1 tablespoon ground flaxseeds
        3 tablespoons water (or other liquid)

        They sell ground flax seed at Winco in the bulk section. I haven’t bought it in awhile so I am not sure on the price.

        • Thanks! I have used some egg replacements but only for one or two eggs. I am not sure how they would work to replace 6. I guess I will see what happens.

    • Krystina says:

      Google “flax egg”. Alot of people who are vegan use it and it works as a great binder in baked goods. It’s just flax seed meal and water, but I cant remember the correct measurements for each. Hope that helps :)

  3. PS, that would be coconut milk frosting recipe

  4. Thanks! Needed some portable Paleo snacks to take to the beach this weekend. This recipe will definitely fit the bill nicely! Looking forward (impatiently) to the Beef Jerky one next week.

  5. You girls are awesome! I think the unedited versions are best…very funny and REAL. :)
