I recently re-discovered the best pwo snack, and possibly a meal if you ate a lot of it. But it is Canadian bacon and chocolate brownies. A few years ago I was introduced to the combination when climbing with some friends in Utah.

Having cut out grains, sugars, and processed foods I have not had a brownie in a few years. However I found an organic chocolate brownie made from almond flour the other day at a local health food store. Then after my workout that afternoon I was able to indulge in the most satisfying pwo meal I have had in a few months.

Now for the real reason for the post.

Does anyone have a good paleo chocolate brownie recipe, so I can make my own in large quantities?

And if you have never tried the combination of bacon and brownies you do not know what you're missing.

Someday I'll give the bacon and brownie combo a try, but until then I'll snack on the high-fat homemade chocolate balls courtesy of the PM Journal. They're delicious in my opinion. I'd think the batter would be suitable for brownies as well.

Far from it. More like an ovulating, 8-month pregnant woman with a sweet tooth for chocolate. These darn chocolate balls are like bom boms. I can't stop eating em.

Almond flour? Now we're talking. Where can you buy it? Can you use it wherever you would commonly use wheat flour.. bread, pancakes, fried chicken dip, etc. etc?

You can buy almond flour online or at TJ's. You have to bake for a little longer with a lower temp. I can send you recipes!

It ain't cheap! http://lucyskitchenshop.com/flour.html

Not ideal...but a good quick fix

2 slices TJ sprouted Whole Grain Bread, TJs Almond Butter and wash it down with 1 scoop Whey and water (or coconut milk)....Mmmmmm.....

Sprouted bread.... lightly toasted it will (in one step) strip rust and 60 year old cosmoline from old rifles.

One word sums it up:
WOW.
