Paleo (but tasty) Chocolate Banana Pancakes

August 18, 2013

I’m not a great pancake maker (my wife can attest to this) but I am learning (my tastebuds can attest to this) and this morning I wanted some pancakes. After figuring out I’m not actually allergic to bananas I have begun using them in all kinds of recipes, this is the yummiest of them so far though. Enjoy! 

1 banana (you can pre-mush it if that makes you feel better) 

3 eggs

2 Tablespoons coconut flour

1 Tablespoon caocao powder (I prefer raw organic) 

1 teaspoon Coconut sugar (optional I think but worth it)

1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract 

1/4 teaspoon maple syrup (this is also optional but I feel like it added…something)

1 Tablespoon of ground cinnamon (you can shrink this amount but I ❤ cinnamon) 

Mash, grind, mix all that junk together until you get a batter-like substance, then put some coconut oil on a hot griddle and a use a tablespoon of batter, cook until they’re brown or as done as you like them. I served with just a bit of coconut oil and a 1/2 teaspoon of maple syrup drizzled over them. I wouldn’t recommend eating this every day or anything but it is pretty high fiber and, mostly low carb (mostly anyway). Oh yeah don’t forget the bacon!

Chicken Sausage Scramble

June 28, 2013

Woke up hungry, which I guess is good considering all that’s going on right now. Here’s what I made:

Heat some olive oil in a skillet add in some cut up chicken sausage and brown it. Toss in some onions, red peppers, yellow peppers and green pepper and salt/pepper to taste, cook until sausage is done and onions are caramelized In a bowl, beat three eggs, add in a tablespoon of melted ghee. Remove sausage/pepper combo to a plate, pour egg mixture into pan and scramble eggs over medium heat until done. Season with salt, pepper and paleo powder, serve over sausage/pepper combo. Enjoy.

Picture would be here if Dropbox photo upload worked all the time. :(. Will edit with pic when able.

Steak, Eggs & @JulianBakery Paleo Powder

March 15, 2013

The other day I woke up HUNGRY. I had worked out twice the day before, ran around all that day and was pretty tired otherwise. I figured this would be a great wake-me-up plus you know, I really like steak and eggs and the addition of Julian Bakery’s Paleo Powder simply made it all the better. Here’s the recipe, enjoy:

 

Steak

Coat with a little olive oil (I use the not Butter Butter flavor from The Olive Scene) then season well with the Paleo Power. Broil on one side for 7 minutes and then flip to the other side for 6 minutes. This came out about medium for me but my oven is very odd and probably needs replacing or repairing. Anyway, it was simple and delicious, perfect breakfast steak.

 

Eggs

Beat two eggs together, pour them into a skillet and, well, scramble them up. Put some Paleo Powder on them for an extra kick and when they’re nearly done, I added some goat cheese. These were pretty fantastic eggs and I’ve made them a few times since, great every time.

Roasted Chicken, Peppers & Goat Cheese Dinner Omelet (Bacon Optional)

March 1, 2013

Nothing about this recipe makes it “dinner” other than the fact that I had it for dinner tonight. It was made out of my roasted chicken recipe from the other night.  First take pull leftover chicken breast off the birdie and put it aside. Put some yellow, red and green peppers in some olive oil (garlic from The Olive Scene for me) and cook them until soft, adding in the chicken to warm it up midway through. Once that is done, put it to the side and then beat three eggs together, pour them into your favorite omelet pan, cook until eggs set. Once the eggs are set, put the pepper/chicken mix over the eggs and then add your goat cheese, fold, remove from pan and enjoy. Easy dinner.

Balsamic Glazed Pork Chops

January 10, 2013

Came home today and wife surprised me with dinner, yay dinner! Here is her recipe:

 

Marinate the pork chops overnight in The Olive Scene dark chocolate balsamic vinegar but first rub them down with garam masala. Once they’re properly marinated then sear the chops on each side (about two minutes on each side) then cover for 5 minutes then finish cooking, uncovered until they reach your desired safe pork temperature.

She experimented with cooking down the balsamic a little bit for the glaze but ultimately it is better to simply drizzle the vinegar over the cooked chops and rely on the residual heat to warm the glaze a bit. The chops were quite delicious, enjoy!

Something About Lamb

October 17, 2012

I’m going to say this straight away, I don’t really like lamb. I decided to cook it only because a) I’m really stuck and getting frustrated (more on that later) and b) I was bored by cooking the same things even if they’re in new ways so I came up with a lamb recipe. It is terrible so don’t cook it but I’ve made commitments to some folks I would update this blog with everything I cook so here we go:

 

In a skillet, put some olivio (duh) and about a 1/4 cup of balsamic vinegar (remember, don’t cheap out on it) and let it simmer for about five minutes or so, stirring often. Add in some black pepper, garlic and salt then add in your cut up lamb tenderloin. Cook it, mixing it up often until done, top with feta. I served with steamed spinach and green beans and added some ginger but don’t do that either because ginger and lamb REALLY doesn’t mix well. There you go, the recipe you should NEVER cook. Here’s a pic of the gross:

Roasted Turkey & Asparagus

October 11, 2012

Get yourself a turkey breast, preferably free range, no antibiotics or any of that. Coat a roasting pan with Olivio and chop off some asparagus spears and line the pan with them. Put the turkey breast on top of the spears, season with thyme and basil. Pour about 1/2 cup of water with two chicken bouillon cube and bake at 325 until the breast reaches about 155 or so. Best asparagus I’ve ever made.
