Paleo Snack Ideas
- 4 zucchini, quartered lengthwise
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan
- 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley leaves
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a cooling rack with nonstick spray and place on a baking sheet; set aside.
- In a small bowl, combine Parmesan, thyme, oregano, basil, garlic powder, salt and pepper, to taste.
- Place zucchini onto prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with Parmesan mixture. Place into oven and bake until tender, about 15 minutes. Then broil for 2-3 minutes, or until crisp and golden brown.
- Serve immediately, garnished with parsley, if desired.
- 1 bunch of kale, washed and dried
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- Salt to taste
- Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Remove the center stems and either tear or cut up the leaves.
- Toss the kale and olive oil together in a large bowl; sprinkle with salt. Spread on a baking sheet (or two, depending on the amount of kale). Bake at 300 degrees for 15 minutes or until crisp.
- 2 Granny Smith Apples
- Heat the oven to 160C/ 140C fan/ gas mark 3. Core the apple and slice through the equator into very thin slices 1 – 2mm thick. Dust with cinnamon and lay flat on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
- Cook for 45 mins – 1 hour, turning halfway through and removing any crisps that have turned brown. Continue cooking until the apples have dried out and are light golden. Cool, store in an airtight container and enjoy as a snack.
- 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled
- 1 Tbls coconut oil, melted
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 2 tsp dried rosemary
- Heat oven to 375 degrees.
- Slice sweet potatoes using a mandolin set to 1/8th inch.
- Grind sea salt and rosemary with a mortar and pestle.
- Toss sweet potatoes in a bowl with coconut oil and salt-seasoning mixture.
- Place on a non-stick baking sheet (or a regular pan greased with coconut oil) and place into the oven. After 10 minutes, take the pan out and flip the chips.
- Place chips back in for another 10 minutes.
- Pull the pan out and place any chips that are starting to brown on a cooling rack.
- Place the chips back in for 3-5 minutes. Every oven is different so keep a close eye on the chips so they don’t burn.
- Place remaining chips on the cooling rack.
- 2 apples, finely diced
- 10 strawberries, diced
- 1 ruby pink grapefruit, diced
- Stevia/rice malt syrup to sweeten if needed
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- Pinch salt
- 1/4 cup water
- Place the fruit in saucepan with the water and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until the fruit is soft and the liquid has been reduced. Stir through the cinnamon and salt.
- Transfer the fruit to a blender and puree until smooth. Taste the mixture and if required add a sweetener.
- Heat oven to 120-150°C (250-300F). Line a large baking tray with baking paper. Pour the mixture onto the tray and spread it out thinly by using the back of a spatula. You want it to just cover the baking paper’s surface without leaving any gaps (the thinner the better!). Place the baking tray in the oven on the lowest shelf available and bake for 8-12 hours.
- Remove the tray from the oven and using a sharp knife cut the fruit leather into strips. Let it cool completely before peeling the fruit leather off the baking paper. Roll up if desired and store in an airtight container for up to a week! Enjoy 🙂
