I’m going to start off this post thanking Juli over at PaleOMG for doing a super nice review of the e-book.  You have until March 3rd to head over and leave a comment for a chance to win a free copy of the ebook.  So if you haven’t gotten your hands on a copy yet and are feeling lucky head over and leave a comment.

Now for some randomness since you all love those moments on the blog….you know you do!  I haven’t had them in awhile too.  I promise the limited amount of posting isn’t because I don’t love you but its all the stuff I’m working on the background.  I have been busy working in the editing of the other book coming out at the end of October.  I can’t wait to see the cover so I can share with all of you.  It will be sweet!  Hint: this next book I’m working on is going to be all about Paleo Treats and Desserts.  Ahhhh, yes I can hear it now…Paleo and Sweets….that’s not right!  Well folks we are human and still have that occasional party or celebration and instead of going to the bakery and indulging on some serious sugar I will have alternatives that are GOOD and have NATURAL sweeteners.  Hooray!  Now of course I went off on a totally different path (and no that wasn’t my randomness I was speaking about above).

Randomness…

I love the Oscars.  Mostly the red carpet and all the dresses.  Back in the days of college I would daydream I was a famous actress and torture my roommates with my acceptance speech.  Ha!  Crazy right?  But that’s what happens when you take acting classes in college (I have a minor in performing arts), you start to daydream way to much!  I have now roped my kids into sitting and watching the red carpet.  They actually requested they eat there dinner while the red carpet was going on in the background so they could still see the parade of dresses and “handsome” boys….that last one was their words.  By the way their vote for handsome boy was Bradley Cooper….seriously that was without me saying a word.  But I have to say I agree!

CrossFit is kicking my butt, in a good way, lately.  We did Annie last week – 50-40-30-20-10 of Double Unders and Ab Mat Sit-Ups.  I had a PR and RX of 6:11.  Pretty proud moment!  We did the Hero WOD Whitten on Saturday, I don’t wish that on anyone!  Long, long, long!  I finished though and was happy with the 37:17 time.  Nothing like a long WOD to make the rest of your day feel like you are going in slow motion too.  My whole body hated me!

Thinking about signing up for the CrossFit open….again thinking!

I occasional tune into the Bachelor.  It’s easy entertainment.  I record and fast forward through all the drama.  Last night I did just that and skipped to the rose ceremony.  Ok, I honestly didn’t think she was going to be kicked off.  I think I might have to watch it again and actually watch the part of her date so I can see why.  The last two standing are totally different and not what I imagined.  We shall see what happens next week.  I’m recording it though so I can use my fast forward button because you know how they draw things out on the last show.

I have to admit I haven’t wanted to cook lately.  Maybe it’s because of all the cooking I have done with the books lately.  The other night I was so lazy I rolled up slices of applegate chicken with avocado slices and had that for my dinner.  Yes folks, even food bloggers are too lazy to make things to eat.

End of Randomness….

Now onto the recipe!  These little twists were inspired by the request for kid-friendly snacks by you, the readers.  These can easily be made with your kids because the dough is similar to the fun you have with playdough.  They are great for dipping too and all kids love a  food that requires some dipping.  Even big kids do too!

Paleo Pizza  Sticks

1 1/2 cups almond flour

2 teaspoons pizza seasoning, divided*

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon sea salt, divided

1 tablespoon bacon grease (ghee or coconut oil), melted

1 teaspoon honey (optional)

3 eggs, divided

2 tablespoons coconut flour

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

In a large bowl whisk together almond flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons pizza seasoning, garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon sea salt, bacon grease (or ghee or coconut oil), and honey.

In a small bowl, which 2 eggs together.  Add egg mixture to the almond flour mix and stir to combined.  Add 1 tablespoon coconut flour and stir to combine.  Allow the mixture to sit for a minute and then add the other tablespoon of coconut flour and stir to combine.  The batter should be slightly sticky and easy to knead.

Make a ball of dough and on a large clean surface (I used a large cutting board) roll dough using finger tips to make a long rope.  I compare it to play with play dough with my kids and making a snake.  You want a long snake about 1/2 inch thick in diameter.  Carefully fold the long rope in half so you have two pieces in equal size.

Then carefully pinch the two tops together and start twisting the two pieces of dough together to make a twist.  If the dough starts to crack just use damp fingers and smooth out the cracks.

Place the pizza twists/sticks onto prepared baking sheet and place in preheated oven.  Bake for 10 minutes.

In a small bowl whisk 1 egg with 1 teaspoon water.  In another small little bowl add 1/2 teaspoon pizza seasoning and 1/2 teaspoon sea salt and mix to combine.

Remove the sticks from the oven and carefully turn them over.  The bottoms should be golden.  Then brush the tops of the sticks (which were the bottoms) with the egg wash and then sprinkle with the pizza seasoning/sea salt mix.

Increase the heat of oven to 375 degrees.

Place the pizza sticks back in the oven and bake for an additional 5 minutes.

Remove and allow the sticks to cool slightly before serving.

Serve with a Paleo Tomato Sauce or favorite clean sauce you desire.

    So I just searched your website this morning for a Paleo Pizza crust! So happy you posted these today! Do you think you could just make this into a crust for a Paleo Pizza?

  2. MDelicious says:

    Hi Lindsay!
    Too funny! I’m not sure how this might work as a crust but you could give it a try. You may need to bake it for about 10 minutes before place the toppings on. I have another pizza crust recipe in the new e-book that is one of my favorites and it uses cauliflower.
    If you try this as a crust report back and let us know how it works out for you. :)

  3. Manon says:

    Wow looks yummy ! I just pinned it to my paleo board, to try soon. Thanks !

  4. Lynsey says:

    could you do it without the almond flour do you think? Could tapioca flour work maybe?

  5. MDelicious says:

    Hi Lynsey,

    I’m not familiar with baking with tapioca flour so I can’t tell you that it would work. If you have used it to substitute almond flour in the past then I would say give it a try. :)

  6. Amy says:

    Looks Deliciouso! Do you have a pin it button that I’m just not seeing? Thanks for the recipe!:)

  7. Diana says:

    This is WONDERFUL!!!! I can’t wait to make these. I was actually going to ask about using it for a crust and I saw the first post above. I will try it too! My family and I are on about an 80% Paleo diet right now so anything I can do to push that number up is great! Thank you for the recipe!

  8. Christine C. says:

    This looks super yummy! I think my kids and I will for sure try this one together!

  9. Tara says:

    We made these as “sticks” since trying to make them into “twists” wasn’t working out for my daughter…she’s a bit of a perfectionist. We also used the recipe for your veggie spaghetti sauce…I basically just whizzed everything in small batches in my food processor then stuck it in the crotch pot (sorry, that’s what we call it) and left it on low all day. This meal is going in the FAVORITES binder! That sauce is amazing and it is SO packed with veggies!! These pizza sticks are plenty sturdy for dipping and taste VERY good. Oh…I ladled some sauce into a sauce pan and cooked it down a bit to get it thick enough to scoop onto the sticks…

  10. Lindsey says:

    Do you think these would freeze well? do you think it would work better as baked sticks or dough sticks? we have a baby coming in July/August, and I’m pretty sure I won’t want to cook =)

  11. David says:

    Hey! This looks great! As I”m allergic to egg yolks, can I substitute egg whites? or, does the recipe need to yolk for a chemistry reason?

  12. Asya says:

    Thanks for sharing that great recipe!
    Would there be any substitute for coconut flour?

  13. MDelicious says:

    Asya,
    You can add more almond flour but I would suggest maybe 1/4 cup. Coconut flour is a dense flour so it doesn’t take much where as almond flour isn’t so you will need more. :)

  14. MDelicious says:

    David, You could try using egg whites. I haven’t tried it this way but give it a go and let us know how they work for you.
