Yields 10-12 meatballs  |  Prep Time: 10 mins  | Cook Time: 12 mins

Perfect game day finger-food that’s crisp and salty on the outside – sweet and tender on the inside. And you won’t miss a play since they’re quick and easy to make!

Paleo Ketchup:

  • 3 TBSP tomato sauce
  • 1 TBSP coconut palm sugar
  • 1 TBSP orange juice
  • 1 TBSP apple cider vinegar

Meatballs:

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1 clove garlic, minced or pressed
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 TBSP paprika
  • Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup prunes, diced
  • 1/4 cup pine-nuts, diced

Directions:

  1. Preheat broiler. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Make the ketchup: In a small saucepan over low heat, add all of the ketchup ingredients. Cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through. Turn off heat, cover and keep warm until meatballs are ready.
  3. In a medium bowl, add the ground beef, almond flour, garlic, chili powder, paprika, and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Mix until combined.
  4. In a small bowl, stir together the prunes and pine-nuts.
  5. Take a walnut-sized scoop of the beef mixture and press it into the palm of your hand to flatten it. Spoon about 1 tsp of the prune mixture into the center of the patty. Fold the edges up and over the filling, pinching together to seal it as you go. Roll it in your hands a bit to form a ball. Repeat with remaining meat and filling.
  6. Place meatballs on prepared baking sheet. Broil 10-12 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. Serves meatballs with warm Paleo Ketchup.

Baked Sweet Potato ChipsScreen Shot 2015-11-20 at 3.05.26 PM copy
Prep Time: 10 mins  | Cook Time: 20 mins

One of the most irresistible snacks during a Super Bowl has to be potato chips. They’re highly addictive but not so great for you. These Sweet Potato Chips might take a little bit more work then simply opening a bag, but they are definitely worth the effort, with a lot less guilt.

Ingredients:

  • 4 medium sweet potatoes, peeled
  • 2 TBSP coconut oil, melted
  • Sea salt and black pepper, to taste

Directions:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350° F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. With a mandolin, thinly slice the sweet potato into rounds. You want them as thin as possible.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the potato slices with the coconut oil and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Toss to evenly coat all of the pieces.
  4. Place potatoes in an even layer on the baking sheets, making sure slices aren’t stacked on top of one another. Bake 20 minutes, flipping slices over, and rotating trays part way through. If they aren’t quite crisp enough, cook an additional 5 minutes, keeping an eye out so they don’t burn. Let cool and serve.

Sweet and Sticky Steak and Cucumber Bites Screen Shot 2015-11-20 at 3.05.26 PM copy
Yields 10-12  |  Prep Time: 10 mins  | Cook Time: 10 mins

These are a bite made in heaven! The heat of the sweet and spicy steak is perfectly matched with the refreshing cucumber, making it easy to have another, and then another…

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 pound rib eye steak, cut into thin slices 2-inches long
  • Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 1 TBSP coconut oil
  • 1 TBSP coconut aminos
  • 1 TBSP orange juice
  • 1/2 tsp chili flakes (crushed red pepper)
  • 1 cucumber, peeled and cut into 10-12, thick slices

Directions:

  1. Season steak with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. When the pan is very hot, add the steak and sear until browned on each side. (Be sure to not overcrowd the pan as this will prevent the steak from browning.)
