paleo guac and chips

If you need a little something to complement your tortilla-less Chicken Fajitas, this homemade guac and chips is the perfect answer. It takes a little effort, but is definitely worth the payoff. Sometimes, it’s nice dipping something other than raw veggies into guacamole.

Paleo Guac and Chips

Chips Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup almond meal
  • 1/4 cup flax seed
  • 2 tbsp sesame seed
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Guacamole Ingredients

  • 2 avocados
  • 1 medium tomato
  • 1/4 cup diced onion
  • 1 1/2 tsp lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt

1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and grind your almonds and flaxseed. I used a coffee bean grinder for my flaxseed.

2. In a medium mixing bowl, combing almond meal, ground flaxseed, sesame seeds, egg whites, cumin, pepper and salt.

3. Stir until mixture resembles cookie dough. You may have to sprinkle in more almond meal if your dough isn’t thick enough.

4. Line baking sheet with wax paper and place 1-inch dough balls on top. Make sure you separate dough balls two inches apart.

5. Place another sheet of wax paper on top of dough balls, and flatten them out as thin as possible using a rolling pin or another flat surface. Here, I used the bottom of my measuring cup.

6. Peel off top layer of wax paper and bake at 350 degrees for 12 to 13 minutes.

7. While the chips are baking, add all guacamole ingredients in small bowl and stir.

8. When chips come out of the oven, let them cool for a couple minutes before peeling off wax paper. Use a rubber mixing spatula to peel away from wax paper without tearing.

Scoop chips in guacamole, and enjoy! If only cheese were paleo…
