My Favorite "Fat Bomb"

"Fat Bombs" and the "ketogenic diet" are all the rage right now......I believe in some of it.
Healthy, organic fats like organic, coconut oil and organic, grass-fed ghee ARE reeallllly good for you to consume. (I eat massive amounts, as do the kiddos.)

Ridiculous amounts of bacon are not.....

Anyway, when I have a craving for something sweet, this is one of my favorites!
This is one serving.  Barely.  Adjust amounts for large gaggle of children. 😜

2 T. organic sunflower butter
2 T. grass-fed butter (or coconut oil, or grass-fed ghee -- you choose!)
1 t. raw cocoa powder
3 T. organic, shredded coconut, unsweetened
couple drops stevia
dash of real vanilla

Stir this all into a bowl.  Don't even bother to refrigerate or make it into "energy balls" -- that's a waste. You're going to eat it all anyway.  Just grab a spoon and dive in!

Paleo Apple Chestnut Pancake

We were out of bananas this morning, after I had already fed the gang and was making myself something, so I had to improvise.  Grabbed a few ingredients from the fridge and pantry and got to work.  I loved it so much, I made another one.....

1/8 c. + organic applesauce (go heavy on the 1/8 c.)
1 organic, farm egg
1 organic, farm egg yolk
1 T. chestnut flour (a nice, FULL T.)
1 t. baking soda
dash of organic vanilla

Pulse all ingredients in the BlendTec.  Pour batter into hot cast iron skillet (heavily greased with organic coconut oil).  Sprinkle with organic cinnamon.  Cook on low heat to avoid burning.  Flip and cook on low heat.  Serve with a heaping dollop of organic, grass-fed ghee and a smidge of raw honey.

I dare you to eat just one!

This is a stock photo meant to show you how many of these I would need to make in order to feed half of my gaggle. 😂
