Easy and delicious weeknight meal!
You can serve them over zucchini pasta, regular pasta, in lettuce wraps, or on their own!
- 1 lb. ground turkey breast or chicken breast
- 3 garlic cloves
- 3 scallions/green onions (whites)
- 1 zucchini, shredded
- 1.5 tsp tamari or low sodium soy sauce
- 1 tsp sesame oil
- 2 tablespoon chia seeds
- Mix all ingredients together until combined
- Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes;
- Set the oven to 400 degrees at this time and spray a baking sheet with oil of choice
- Wet your hands and roll the meat mixture into 1 inch balls, careful to handle them gently. You don’t want to pack them too tight or the meatballs will be too dense.
- Set in the oven for 8 minutes, turn over and cook another 8 minutes or until done.
- These go great in lettuce wraps, on top of pasta or zoodles, or on their own!
This is one of my all-time favorite recipes! Robbie begs me to make it every week. He actually came up with the name for this blog, and he named it after this recipe.
It is crazy easy to throw together, and makes your whole house smell amazing. The recipe can be adapted for any nuts/seeds you prefer, as long as you keep the wet to dry ratio in tact.
I wouldn’t skip the Coconut flakes though. I know some people don’t like coconut flavor, but they like it in this granola – just trust me on this one!
- 1/2 Cup of EACH:
- slivered Almonds
- Sunflower Seeds
- Pumpkin Seeds
- Coconut flakes (HEAPING!)
- 1/2 Cup ground flax seeds
- 1 tsp. pink Himalayan salt
- 2 tsp. cinnamon
- 5 dates, chopped up
- 2 – 3 tbsp. coconut oil, melted
- 2 – 3 tbsp. maple syrup
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- Preheat oven to 325
- In a bowl, mix all dry ingredients, except the dates.
- In another bowl, mix together the coconut oil, maple syrup, and vanilla. Start with lesser amounts of each.
- Pour the wet mixture onto the dry, and mix around. Everything should be coated nicely. If the mixture seems too dry, add another 1/2 tbsp. of oil and/or maple syrup until everything is nicely coated.
- Pour the granola mixture onto a baking sheet. If you like large clumps, make sure everything is tightly packed, like one large granola “sheet”.
- Bake for 25 minutes. Turn off the oven and let the granola sit another 10 minutes inside.
- Remove from the oven and add chopped dates.
- Enjoy warm right away, or allow to cool and become crunchy (I prefer crunchy!)
Enjoy in your yogurt bowls all week long! (If this actually lasts you a week…)
