Re: George's Recipe Corner

Check out local natural foods stores, if needed you can also order online.

Flours can always be made from whatever it is you are making the flour from, i.e. almond flour is almonds.

Here is one way to make your own almond flour (wfs): http://www.trulylowcarb.com/AlmondTLC.htm

Dave - along with the natural food stores that George mentioned, some larger grocers carry Bob's Red Mill

http://www.bobsredmill.com/ (WFS)

in their "health food" or "diet" section.

Re: George's Recipe Corner

PALEO PECAN SANDIES
3 ounces almond flour (3/4 cup)
1/4 cup coconut flour
1 ounce pecans, very finely chopped (1/4 cup)
1 egg white
3 coconut butter, melted
4 packets Stevia
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Dash cinnamon

Preheat over to 325. In a small bowl, mix all ingredients well. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and drop dough in 24 small mounds. Place baking sheet in freezer 5-10 minutes to firm up the dough. Remove from freezer and roll dough into balls; put back on baking sheet making sure to space them evenly 6 across and 4 down. Cover the balls with plastic wrap and take a small bottle cap (I used an Aveda travel cap), a little less than 1/2" thick, and press down firmly over each ball of dough. Peel off the plastic wrap and repeat until all the cookies have been shaped. Bake at 325 15 minutes, or until golden brown.

Makes 24 bite-size cookies (can be frozen...if they last that long).

Per Cookie:
49 Calories;
carbs 1.76g; 8%
protein 1/17g; 10%
fat 4.48g; 82%

Whole recipe is 1173 calories.

Re: George's Recipe Corner

How do you guys make your nut butter, ground seeds, etc? A blender? A food processor? Do you just grind the almonds and they turn into butter, or do you have to add things to it?

Emily - I buy my almond butter at a local health food store (Vitamin Cottage). They make it fresh. Jay posted his walnut butter on this thread
