Lately Doug and Lindsay have been trying to rid every once of processed sugar from their diet, this is harder than it sounds as that white stuff is in EVERYTHING! So Doug came up with this recipe and tweaked it after borrowing the original from Stupid Easy Paleo (original recipe HERE). This is very filling so you don’t need a huge serving. While this recipe is not strict paleo or whole30, and it does have some sugar from the potato and applesauce and syrup/honey, these are natural sugars and none of this is processed.
- 2 large sweet potato
- 1 jar applesauce (no sugar or sweeteners added, all natural, organic)
- coconut shavings (no nitrates or sweeteners)
- raisins or chopped dates or any other dried fruit (again no added sweeteners)
- sunflower seeds
- pine nuts or other tree nuts chopped
- 6 tbsp almond butter
- honey or maple syrup
Alright this is pretty simple, dice up two large sweet potato, boil them for about 30 minutes. Strain it all out and dump back into your large pot you boiled the potato in. Add jar of applesauce. Using a masher or a hand beater, mash and beat and whip it all together until smoothed out to your liking. Add a few shakes of cinnamon, , almond butter, some chopped dates or prunes or raisins or cranberries. Add half a cup of chopped nuts or sunflower seeds and add the coconut shavings. Just a little pinch of salt and a drizzle…ok more than a drizzle…of honey. Mix it all together one more minute. BOOM! DONE!
For Doug this makes six servings, if you’re female or smaller than Doug you can divide this in half for a perfect 320 calories. Can be eaten warm or cold so it is easy to travel with and will keep for over a week in the fridge.
*If you are going to be lifting big and are looking for a little more carbs you can mix in some oats.
