Have a look at paleodietlifestyle.com for chocolate covered bacon... You HAVE to update this thread though :-)

mmm, yes, egg yolk is great for dipping! Bacon or a hamburger is also great in egg yolk!

My point was the the dunking itself is a habit. I never once mentioned any cookie, paleo or not :-). Fwiw, I used to be a dunker, so I know that habits can change :-)

I agree Payam, I buy soaked and dehydrated nuts (or make them myself) and my own flour for the nuts, but of course, these are treats shouldn't be overdone.

both almond flour and gluten free oats are high in phytic acid, suboptimal

If you are ok with occasional gluten free oats, I have also seen some good Scottish shortbread recipes with oat flour. Haven't tried them yet but might someday if I get a hankering:)

Wild guess here, but what about thick-cut sweet potato fries?

Almond flour only biscotti! There are some good recipes out there - delightful and crunchy! I particularly like the recipe posted here: http://comfybelly.com/2009/03/biscotti-with-almond-flour/#.TsSsBGAgvz8 and haven't tried many others, I just kind of play with it.

Otherwise I love financiers (I withhold the small amount of wheat flour and just us more finely ground almond flour) and French macaron - but those wouldn't really hold up in hot liquid (the macaron - the financiers might.

Pork rinds! Well, never tried it, but I find them to be "delicious grain-free items".

I'm also a dunker. I started off with paleo substitutes for shortbread, biscotti, etc... but eventually I just gave up dunking altogether.

Carrots have the crunch, but probably not very absorbent, unless you took the time to cut out a reservoir (but that seems like a lot of work!). I like the sweet potato idea.

You could make something thicker than your drink (say, a soup) and use a multitude of veggies for dipping. I make a taco soup in which I used to dip Tostitos Scoops, but now I dip bell pepper strips.

If you dehydrate anything (fruit, veggies, etc.), those would probably be good dipped. Once dipped, perhaps they would soak up the hot liquids?

I would think most fruits could be pretty good - Apples, Oranges, etc. Maybe something with crunch, Nuts?!

i like to dip my massive rib eye steak into some tasty egg yolk + cheese goodness. give it a go, or you could try some fake croissant made with almond flour if you are still SAD. btw i hate hot drinks, liquid has to be cold, always!

I think that the best way to break a habit is to stop it completely. Surely after a while it'd be habit not to dunk?

You can make some hard almond cookies or crackers I guess. There are countless of paleo cookies around, but obviously they are not to be used all the time.

This is a bit of an indulgence, but when I'm feeling naughty I'll pick up coconut rolled dates from the wholesale section at Whole Foods. They are absolutely amazing with coffee.

Try these cookies. Thin, crispy, and crunchy. Reminds me of biscotti and is nice to dip in coffee.

Preheat oven to 350F.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (not wax paper). The parchment paper is very important. Don't grease the paper.

I apologize in advance, I give measurements but I don't actually measure anything... I generally just throw in a bit of everything until the mixture looks right.

Grab a cereal bowl, and to it, add:

  • one tablespoon butter and one tablespoon coconut oil.
  • a tablespoon of your favorite baking cocoa powder.
  • about 1/4 cup sugar.

Microwave for 40 minutes.

  • Mix in about about 4 tablespoons of tapioca starch. After stirring it should be thick but still wet.
  • Now add an egg yolk. It should look pretty runny, and you'll be thinking "wait, this can't be right, is this cookie dough or gravy?!?!". But hold on.

Grab a tablespoon and drop 9 cookies on your sheet. No more, because they'll spread a lot.

Bake for 10 minutes, but after 8 minutes are up, keep an eye on it, your oven might run hotter than mine.

Slide parchment off the baking sheet onto the counter or kitchen table so the cookies cool faster :-D

After they cool, they are very flat, hard, and crunchy. Remove them frmo the parchment with a metal spatula.

Snap the cookies in half, and they'll be perfect dunked in coffee :-)
