I am pretty sure that the Paleolithic man did not actually eat these, but if he found one lying around, he would have.
I made these yesterday and brought them to the CFOT nutrition talk. They were all eaten, which I think confirms that these are good.
Total time is about 5 minutes, plus a little time to freeze them. So:
-Get a large mixing bowl.
-Add the following (since I am not down with the Zone, I don't weigh or measure. Open your mind and add quantities that you feel are right. Then taste as you go)
-Add 1 spoonful of coconut oil
-Add a three spoons of almond butter
-Pour in about a cup of shredded coconut
-Add half a cup of slivered almonds (Trader Joe's, unsalted and toasted work well)
-Mix in some dark cocoa powder and or dark choc chips
-Drizzle in a little honey
-Mix and smash with a wooden spoon. Break up those almond slivers.
-Make sure the consistency is not too liquid. If so, add more coconut and almond.
-Taste. Is it sweet enough? If not, add more honey. Repeat.
-Put wax paper in a baking dish. Pour in mix and spread thin.
-Freeze it - 20 minutes
-Take it out, flip it over, peel off the wax paper and cut into squares. Pieces will break off. Eat these (cook's bonus!)
Put squares in a bowl and back into the freezer. Take out 5 min before you serve.
Watch them disappear.
