Almonds for the Paleo Man

Austin broke the news to me the other day; He is ready to give ‘paleo’ a go. I am so proud of him and excited to get back on a more steady paleo way of eating. The last few months of my life have swayed from the form of eating that I most prefer. It is such a challenge to stay strict to a form of nutrition when other options constantly present themselves. However, now we are in this together. A couple days into new excitement and clean eating.

Today was a glorious day in this spring season. Austin and I worked on the yard and   for desert I was sure to surprise him with some almond butter bars that fit into our plan of nutrition. Cheers to healthy lifestyles with sweet celebrations here and there!

Almond Butter Bars
Ingredients:
1 Cup Coconut Flour
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 Cup Dark, Dark, Dark Chocolate
Handfull of Almonds
1/2 Cup Melted Coconut Oil

3/4 Cup Almond Milk
1/2 Cup Almond Butter-I made my own using fresh, raw almonds.

1 tsp Vanilla
Pinch of Salt

Mix wet ingredients. Add dry and mix. Press into an 8×8 inch baking dish that has been greased with coconut oil. Sprinkle coconut flakes on top. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes.
