Repurposing Paleo Recipes

24 Mar

We all have our favorite paleo recipes, paleo recipe sites, paleo cookbooks.  There is always more within those pages than you might realize.  There are ingredients or portions of a recipe that you can use in entirely new ways.  Eating paleo never has to be boring or monotonus.  Paleo eating certainly should never be bland, although a lot of recipes out there are (beware!).

Here a two great examples.  Paleo granola (Paleo Made Easy p. 25).  I originally made this recipe to have, you guessed it, granola!  Having granola meant having a crunchy snack that I could just grab and eat, plus it meant I could make parfaits (Paleo Made Easy p. 33) or simply just add it to coconut milk yogurt (I recommend So Delicious Greek style coconut milk yogurt in raspberry or strawberry).  How was this granola repurposed?  As CEREAL!  Just pour some in a bowl, add almond milk (or coconut milk beverage if you prefer), grab a spoon and enjoy!  The best part about using granola for cereal aside from it tasting awesome, is that it doesn’t get soggy!

Another repurposed recipe is the chocolate peppermint coating for my Paleo Cave Girl Scout Cookies (Paleo Made Easy p. 123).  I was making the cookies one afternoon and friends in the house were dragging.  We decided espresso over coffee which turned into wanting to try almond milk lattes.  As soon as the espresso was poured into the almond milk I asked a friend to bring me her cup and I drizzled some of my paleo peppermint chocolate coating over her latte.  Delicious!
