Paleo Chips and Avocado Salsa


Paleo Chips 

1/4 C. Blanched Almond Flour
1/4 C. Ground Flax Seeds
1/4 C. Sesame Seeds
1/4 C. Pumpkin Seeds, Ground
1/4 C. Sesame Seeds, Ground
1/2 tsp. Ground Cumin
1/4 tsp. Ground Corriander
1/4 tsp. Ancho Chile Powder
1/4 C. Water
  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. Mix dry ingredients in a medium bowl.
  3. Add water and oil, and mix to combine. You should end up with a slightly wet, sticky mixture.
  4. Onto a silpat, or parchment paper, lined baking sheet drop the dough by the tablespoonful (I used a small ice cream scoop for easy removal), spacing the chips about 2 inches apart. 
  5. Cover the dough with a piece of parchment paper and flatten (as thin as possible), using a rolling pin or the bottom of a measuring cup. Remove parchment paper and make sure chips are evenly flattened. 
  6. Bake15 minutes, until crisp. 
  7. Transfer the pan to a wire rack and let the chips cool on the pan for 5 minutes, then transfer them to the rack and let cool completely. 
  8. Repeat with the remaining dough. 
Makes 24 chips


Avocado Salsa

Avocado, diced
Tomato, very small dice
Red Onion, very finely minced
Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice
Fresh Cilantro, chopped
Fresh Jalapeno, finely minced
Sea Salt
Black Peper
Ground Cumin
Ground Corriander
Ancho Chile Powder

These are the ingredients that I use. I really just create my salsa (guacamole) by taste, depending on the quantity I'm making. So, play around with the quantities to create a flavor that's right for you.
Just trust me on these ingredients...they make a really flavorful salsa!

And, they actually taste really good! I'm definitely throwing a few into the SuperBowl party mix...the true test!

Awesome recipe. Thanks!

FYI you can easily flatten an entire tray by just putting another (same size) baking sheet over the one with the "chips" on it -- use the parchment, then put the tray on top, press down and -- voila -- flattened all at once!

Love your recipes!!

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these! So far have had them instead of corn chips when I made nachos for my family, and had them tonight with pumpkin soup. And they freeze well too! Thankyou for your fantastic recipes. Will be making more of these tomorrow.
