Paleo Game Night

 
paleo game night

Tonight was my night to host Bunko at my house. We have 12 girls in our group so I only have to host once a year. I cook dinner at my house almost every single night, but for some reason when it's my turn to host Bunko, I draw a blank and have no idea what to cook. So I pulled some of my favorite recipes from my blog.
For our appetizers we had Bacon Wrapped Dates, Paleo Spinach and Artichocke Dip
We had a simple grilled chicken salad for our meal.
For dessert we hadCaramel Pecan Bars

    Can’t wait to try these recipes.
    Here is the recipe I told you about this morning. It is from Gwyneth Paltrow’s new cookbook, “It’s All Good”.
    1 1/2 cups raw cashews
    1 1/2 cups dates, pitted and roughly chopped
    1/2 cup almond butter
    1/2 cup maple syrup
    1/2 cup coconut flour
    1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
    1/2 tsp almond extract
    1 1/2 cups dark chocolate chips (60% or higher cacao)
    1 1/2 tbsp coconut oil

    In a food processor, grind cashews to a fine meal. Add dates, almond butter, syrup, flour, coconut and almond extract; pulse until a sticky dough forms. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. With a drop of water on hands, press cashew mixture onto parchment, forming a 1-inch-thick rectangle. Refrigerate until firm, 6 to 8 hours. Set a stainless steel or glass bowl over a pot of simmering water (water not touching bowl). In bowl, combine chocolate chips and oil. Stir until just melted, 3 to 5 minutes; remove from heat. Pour chocolate mixture over cold cashew mixture; smooth with spatula. Refrigerate until chocolate coating sets, at least 1 hour. Using parchment, lift bar out of baking sheet. Cut into 18 rectangles.
