Boulder Canyon Potato Chips: New Packaging + Flavors

This post is sponsored by Boulder Canyon Foods.

About Boulder Canyon:

Boulder Canyon is proud to be among the natural food innovators who strongly believe in using real food ingredients to make better snacks. In 1994, two brothers, Don and Jay Poore, had an idea for a better mouse trap.  In this case, it was a potato chip that would fly in the face of convention to prove that consumers would be willing to pay a little more for an extraordinary snacking experience. Today, we have over 30 unique better-for-you snacks with fewer, better and minimally processed ingredients. We make these with unique oils to fit your taste and health preferences. Next time you’re in your local grocery or natural foods store, pick up a bag of Boulder Canyon snacks and flip it over. On the ingredient list, you will most often find three, maybe four ingredients. For instance, “Potatoes, Avocado Oil, Sea Salt,” is all there is to find within our Avocado Oil Canyon Cut™ chips, but we’d wager a bet that it’s a snack experience unlike any you’ve had before.

My Experience:

the rad team at Boulder Canyon is on a mission (+with fresh new packaging) to inspire you to FOLLOW YOUR PATH.
i mean, if this doesn’t align with how my life has gone, iuno what does. FER SHER i have taken the path less traveled (at times with small amounts of logic and heaps of resistance from others) in my life. which reminds me of a fave quote: “if you can see your path laid out in front of you step by step, you know it’s not your path. your own path you make with every step you take. that’s why it’s your path.” -Joseph Campbell
Boulder Canyon is a brand I value for their commitment to non-GMO ingredients, sickkk flavors and usage of clean oil choices (not inflammatory in nature like canola or soybean oil)
they sent me 9 different flavors to try! the Buffalo Ranch and Malt Vinegar (both pictured) are the two i’m most excited about.
with all of the paleo meals we prepare at home, I’m always craving a crunch, and that’s what these chips satisfy for me. The flavor, the texture after entire mouthfeel make me feel like I’m splurging; but with clean ingredients, there’s no guilt.

Organic Protein Muffin Recipe

This post contains a recipe for organic, no sugar added, gluten free, dairy free protein muffins.

organic gluten free muffins protein

In an effort to create a healthy treat that can be eaten quickly and on the go, I played with some ingredients and came up with these organic, gluten free, dairy free, no sugar added, protein muffins that I’m very excited about! I will also suggest how to make a vegan version (without eggs). Having these sitting in the kitchen will help encourage you to reach for a healthy treat versus snacking on junk.

Keep in mind, I did use measuring cups to record which measurements worked, but I also advocate taking a recipe and putting your own spin on it.

Here is what you need:

-A pinch of himalayan sea salt

-1/2 teaspoon organic Vanilla Extract

-3/4 cup of organic Coconut Flour

-1/2 cup Coconut oil or Coconut Butter (might have to pop it in the microwave to melt it enough to mix in)

-1/4 cup of organic Stevia

-1 scoop of Vanilla Raw Protein by Garden of Life

-1 scoop of Marley Coffee Raw Protein by Garden of Life

-2 eggs

-1-2 tablespoons of water (if needed: to make desired consistency)

Optional (to make a festive batch!)

-Add 4 small sweet potatoes to the mixture after they’ve been boiled (for about 5 minutes), chopped and blended. You could also use organic pumpkin! Make sure that if you buy canned pumpkin, it’s in a BPA free can (available at Whole Foods).

-You could also substitute chia seeds for the eggs if you are vegan!

Mixing:

-Combine wet ingredients separately from the dry ingredients, then combine them both together.

Baking Instructions:

-Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes

-Muffins are tasty warm, or cold!

-Best if stored in the refrigerator after they cool

These muffins are entirely organic, gluten free, dairy free, protein dense and delicious! Using the stevia in place of sugar keeps the sugar content at bay.They make for a perfect snack in between meals. ENJOY!
