Real Super Bowl Snacks

This post was my husband’s fantastic idea :). So here is a quick round-up of some real food goodies for your Super Bowl Sunday. The recipe names are clickable links to the original recipe (except for the first two — asian meatballs and the nut mix). I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Asian Meatballs

To make the meatballs combine the following in a bowl and form into meatballs: 3 tbsp coconut aminos, 2 drops of fish sauce*, 1/4 cup chopped green onions, 1 tsp minced fresh ginger, 1 tsp minced garlic, 1/2 tsp salt (we use Himalayan pink salt), 1/2 tsp pepper and 1 pound of ground turkey (preferably organic). Bake at 425 °F for 25 minutes on a rimmed baking sheet. *We use Red Boat Fish Sauce, the only ingredients are anchovy and sea salt.

Cinnamon Nut Mix

Preheat oven to 275 degrees. Whisk together 1 egg white, 1 tbsp coconut oil, 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract, 1 tsp ground cinnamon and 2 pinches of salt (we use Himalayan pink salt). Add 1/4 cup almonds, 1/4 cup macadamia nuts, 1/2 cup walnuts and 2 tbsp almond meal. Spread evenly on a rimmed baking sheet and bake for 25 to 30 minutes until toasted. Sprinkle extra salt if desired.

Pecan/Almond Butter Cups

Melt Enjoy Life Chocolate chunks or chips in a double boiler, coat the bottom of a candy mold with the chocolate, let it set, then added a tiny scoop of pecan butter and poured chocolate over the top.

Trail Mix Cups

1. Line a mini-muffin pan with paper liners (we didn’t have mini muffin cups, so we just used a regular sized muffin tin).
2. Spoon a tablespoon of melted chocolate into each muffin liner (we use Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips).
3. Toss together nuts and fruit. Place mixture into the melted chocolate and use a spoon to make sure all of the goods are glued down into the melted chocolate.
4. Place the muffin pan in the refrigerator until the chocolate is firm.

Here are the combinations we used:

– Dehydrated Bananas (chopped) & Raw Pecans (chopped)
– Dried Cherries (chopped) & Pistachios (chopped)
– Dried Apricots & Almonds (sliced or chopped)



  • 20 Chicken wings (organic if possible)
  • 2 tbsp hot sauce (only ingredients should be distilled vinegar, red pepper, salt)
  • 1/4 cup ghee (organic butter works too)
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (depending on taste)
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp celery seed
  1. Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C) and place wings on greased sheet pan. We use the Misto Gourmet Olive Oil Sprayer to grease the pan. I have Trader Joe’s California Estate Extra Virgin Olive Oil in my sprayer.
  2. Bake in oven for 30 minutes, or until they are cooked through.
  3. Combine hot sauce, ghee or butter, vinegar, paprika, cayenne, black pepper, garlic powder, and celery seed, in a medium saucepan.
  4. Set over low heat, mixing until butter is completely melted and combined; simmer for 5 minutes and remove from heat.
  5. When wings are baked, dip in sauce to coat well, then shake off excess and return coated wings to baking sheet.
  6. Reduce over temperature to 250°F (120°C) and give wings another 15 minutes. Toss wings in remaining sauce after you remove from over and serve.
