Does your family think you are slightly odd as you avoid the landmines of mass overindulgence over the festive season? Or are you someone who lets your hair down and says sod it, so you stuff yourself like the turkey you are about to eat!
Either way, if you are looking for a tasty, high protein paleo friendly snack, then these stars might just do the trick. You can hand the paleo snacks out to the relatives without them thinking you belong to some strange food cult, and get praise for creating these healthy and festive treats! Enjoy!
- 1 & 1/2 cups almond meal
- 1/2 cup 180 protein powder
- 1 – 1 & 1/2 tbs cinnamon
- 2 eggs
- Juice of half an orange
- Orange zest
- 1/2 – 1 tsp stevia or to taste
Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl and it should make a sticky dough.
Place the dough in the fridge for about 20 min so that it is easier to handle when you roll it out.
Then roll the dough between two sheets of baking paper to about 5 mm thick.
Use some festive christmas cookie cutter shapes and cut out all your favorite biscuit shapes.
Pop onto a baking tray and bake for 12 minutes at 160 degrees.
Optional – As it’s Christmas: When the Stars are cool, melt down three squares of 70% Lindt chocolate and pipe some chocolate onto the biscuits into cute shapes and viola!!!
So there you have it, some great paleo friendly high protein snacks… Bring on the party!
