Paleo Chicken Nuggets

These are incredible easy to put together and incredibly tasty. I want to eat them for lunch every single day!

Paleo Chicken Nuggets

1 lb ground chicken (dark meat is best, I think)
salt and pepper to taste
onion powder to taste
garlic powder to taste
1 egg
2 Tbsp coconut oil

Mix all together and then use a spoon to create nuggets- basically little tiny meatloafs. Melt coconut oil in a pan and fry the nuggets, about 5 or 6 minutes per side or until cooked through and golden brown.

Delicious!

Coconut Flour Banana Zucchini Bread (Paleo)

I think this recipe is going to be very popular in my kitchen with various tweaks and modifications. Next time I’m going to add another couple of bananas, peel the zucchini (so you don’t get green flecks) and pass it off as plain ol’ banana bread. Patrick will never know he’s eating zucchini. I plan to also try adding pumpkin and reducing a couple of eggs to make a banana pumpkin bread.

For this version I added a walnut and coconut flour streusel type topping, but I don’t think it added a lot of value so I will just leave it out next time. The bread itself is delicious enough without trying to add bells and whistles. It’s incredibly moist and tasty without being very sweet.

1 medium zucchini, grated

2 Tbsp. cinnamon

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Mix the bananas, eggs, honey, vanilla. Squeeze the excess water out of the zucchini in a dry dish towel then add to the mix. Add the remaining ingredients and stir until there are no lumps. Spray a loaf pan with coconut oil spray or grease with coconut oil. Pour in the mix and bake for 55 minutes.
