Looking for protein/snack bar recipes. 2 problems with every recipe I find online:
1. I am allergic to Almonds, Walnuts, Hazelnuts etc. (No problem with ONLY peanuts or cashews though) 2. I despise the flavor of coconut. Seems like shredded coconut is in EVERYTHING. I have found expeller oil that is okay. But cannot stand the taste otherwise.
If you have recipes without the above mentioned, I would love some help!! Spark On!! Gretchen

On the weekends I make egg muffins like the post below. I use up whatever veggies are in the frig, plus whatever to make them tasty (not CHEESE, for me). My favorites are
sauted spinach, red pepper, green onion (drain well) raw salmon scrapes (I live in the PNW, if you don't have scrapes, use canned or leftovers) bacon and brocolli (saute the brocolli, drain well) shrimp, spinach (sauted, drained) baked leftover sweet potato & onion Spaghetti squash Qinuoa (I know some of you don't do qinua, sorry)
I use muffin tins. I really pack with the fillings. Then, I beat up about 6 eggs (to make 12) and top off each muffin. bake at 375 for about 20 minutes until set up. Remove from the tins and either freeze or put in baggies for later in the week. About 3 is a huge breakfast for me.

Spicy Pineapple Chili....sounds a little strange, but this is AMAZING!!!! So perfect for this time of the year.
Ingredients 1 head cauliflower 2 tbsp ghee or clarified butter 1 tsp cumin 1 tsp coriander salt and pepper to taste
Directions If you have a food processor, using the grate setting, grate small chunks of cauliflower. Iif you don't have a food processor, use a cheese grater on the larger side and grate the head of cauliflower into little granules but watch your fingers!
Heat ghee in a skillet over medium high heat. Once smoking, add "riced" cauliflower and allow to brown.
Stir occasionally, allowing the cauliflower to brown a bit and sprinkle in the spices as it cooks. Side note: use which ever spices or herbs you are using in your main dish, to complement the flavors.
Cauliflower rice is done when texture is soft and somewhat sticky (like rice!). Approximately 8-10 minutes.

Julian Bakery (online) has Paleo Bread, which is 100% acceptable for paleo diets and also low-carb, to boot. I have tried it, and it's pretty good! They often post recipes, and this one today caught my eye, especially. YUM!

Super easy breakfast to go: Egg "Muffins"--Makes 24, keeps for 4-5 days
-8 sausage links (smaller size, can also use 0.5-1lb ground sausage or a mix of bacon, ham, steak) -16 eggs -Veg of choice (1/2 large onion, a bell pepper, and garlic, all diced finely, are my go-to choices. Celery, spinach, rocket, very finely diced carrots, mushrooms etc can all be used)1 -ghee, butter, etc. -salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease the cups of one muffin tin with butter (or fat of choice) Brown the sausage in a frying pan or cast iron skillet. When done, remove and cut in to small chunks. Place equal amounts of sausage in the bottoms of the muffin tins (2 regular sized). Sweat onions and garlic over medium heat, until onions are translucent. Add and saute other veg. When done, remove from heat, and place equal amounts of veg in each In a large bowl, scramble the eggs and season with salt and pepper. Pour the scrambled eggs evenly on top of the sausage. The mixture will come almost to the top of the tin. Cook for 10 minutes. Rotate muffin tins. Cook for an additional 10 min. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for about 5 minutes. Use a spatula to loosen the egg muffin from the sides of the pan if inverting the pan does not work.

Lets use this thread to share general recipes with each other. I'll start it off with one of our teammates recipes for a "Christmas Paleo Breakfast"... although I suspect that this casserole can and will be enjoyed year round. Thanks for sharing your recipe on your blog KKITTSY ... Link to KKITTSY's blog: www.sparkpeople.com/mypage.asp?id=KKITTSY
Here is the recipe:
I wanted something paleo to start my day so that I wouldn't get off to a bad start. Here's what I came up with. I love the red and green peppers on top- makes it FESTIVE!!! emoticon
1 lb. breakfast sausage, browned (spicy, sage, pork, or turkey..whatever your preference) 8oz button mushrooms- sliced 1/2 large onion- chopped 1 T butter 1 lrg. sweet potato (yam) 3-4c. fresh spinach 10 large eggs 1/2 green bell pepper 1/2 red bell pepper salt pepper
Brown sausage. In separate skillet, saute onions and mushrooms in the butter. Mix into browned sausage. Pour mix into bottom of a greased 9X13pan or round deep casserole dish.
Microwave sweet potato 3-4min, turn, then microwave again 3-4min until cooked. remove skin and cut into bite size cubes. layer over the sausage mix.
quickly saute the spinach in the "sausage pan"- (using the sausage drippings). layer over mixture in pan.
beat eggs, pour over casserole top with sliced/chopped red and green bell peppers for a festive holiday look. lightly salt and pepper the top for taste.
bake at 350F-400F for 45min-1hour or until eggs are set.
ENJOY! i served mine with cinnamon-butter sauteed apples. It was very filling and delicious!
**nutrition note** if using turkey sausage, and assuming 6 servings- this is around 250 cals, 15gC, 15gF, 22gP. using pork sausage increases fat content.
