Fall Off the Wagon Gracefully

December 19, 2010 7 comments

Holidays. Sprinkles and flour are all over our house to be ready for the visitors. It’s wearing on my willpower. To combat the sugar insurgents I figured I’d make a run on a candy I could eat without violating the paleo/primal way. I’ve seen this and decided to try a variant out. I give you my take on Almond Joy (yes they look like poop).

You’ll need a 2 bags of unsweetened coconut flakes.

A bag of almond slivers, whole almonds will work but slivers are more fancy, it IS the holidays. People like fancy.



Some coconut oil.

Chocolate Almond Bark. Due to short notice this is the least paleo/primal bit but there isn’t a ton in it and so what, chocolate is OK you dogma riders.


In a bowl place your coconut, almonds, dates, melted oil. Toss.

Melt the “almond bark” in the microwave, Grok used the sun. They are both radiation. Add a little to the mix and toss.

Add a little more, we are adding until we can stick all this together. Chocolate glue. Once you get the right “feel” roll it up into balls, if you have a tool fine. I used my hands.

They turned out pretty good if I do say so myself. I know I can get this closer to 90% with better planning. Enjoy
