Coconut Almond Chicken
Take 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk or coconut almond milk and whisk together with 1 tbsp plain Greek yogurt in a shallow dish and set aside. In another shallow dish take 1/4 c millet flour, flaxseed meal or almond meal and mix together with 1/2 c panko or whole grain bread crumbs, 1/2 c unsweetened coconut flakes and 1/4 c finely chopped almonds.
Take 1.5 lbs chicken or turkey breast and cut into tenders. Dip each tender in the milk/yogurt and then in the flour/coconut/breadcrumb mix.
Place on baking sheet and bake at 385 for 35 to 40 min flipping over halfway through.
***FIT Tip***chose your ingredients wisely- Millet flour vs white flour, unsweetened coconut vs. sweetened, Greek yogurt vs. regular yogurt. Better ingredients=a better you!!!
Good afternoon! It’s fall and I have been wanting to make my own granola for a while now so I finally did it and here it is: Pumpkin, almond and flax are the main ingredients! I hope you try it! It is so nutritious and can be made to suit your taste! Add different or multiple types of nuts, different dried fruit or chocolate!
4 c oats
3/4 c flaxseed
3/4 c crushed almonds
3/4 c sunflower seeds
1/4 c of honey
1/2 c dried cranberries
Ginger, nutmeg, pumpkin and cinnamon spices-about 2 tsp each-4 tsp of the pumpkin
2 small cupfuls of vanilla extract
Cinnamon and sugar grinder to top it all off-just a dusting
Mix all ingredients except for the dried fruit-add that at the end when you pull it out of the oven to cool.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 min-half way through give it a toss around to be sure you don’t burn any of it. Use 2 trays so the granola is thinly and evenly spread…not piled up too much! Let it cool on the pan then seal and store.
