Brownies, cookies, peanut brittle…there are plenty of recipes for sweets out there that incorporate cannabutter. But it seems to be more challenging to find savory recipes tailored to help infuse food with medicine—or fun!
Low-fat is dead; go low-carb instead
TeamMB wants you to enjoy robust health. And while we don’t turn down all sweet treats, we know that too much sugar takes an extremely heavy and unnecessary toll on the body. Sugar is a deadly, addictive substance that kills thousands of people annually, after making them extremely sick first. (Interestingly, the cannabis in this recipe does neither of those things, yet it’s illegal; while sugar is sold in school vending machines and even fed to children as a treat. That’s pretty weird.)
This recipe is considered paleo and very low in sodium, carbs, and other undesirables.
Cuckoo for Coconut Chicken Patties
- 1/2 cup/120 ml MagicalButter Coconut Oil
- 1 pound/455 g high-quality ground chicken
- 1/2 cup/120 ml and 1/3 cup/80 ml almond flour
- 1/2 cup/120 ml coconut, shredded unsweetened
- 1 teaspoon/5 ml onion powder
- 1/4 teaspoon/1¼ ml garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon/1¼ ml paprika

- 1/4 teaspoon/1¼ ml fresh ground black pepper
- 1/8 teaspoon/½ ml fresh ground black pepper
- 1 egg yolk
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Preheat your oven to 375°F/190°C.
- In a medium-sized mixing bowl, add ½ cup/120 ml of almond flour, ½ cup/120 ml of shredded coconut, and ¼ teaspoon/1¼ ml of both salt and pepper. Combine thoroughly.
- In a separate bowl, combine the ground chicken, ⅓ cup/80 ml of the almond flour, the onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, sea salt, pepper, and egg yolk. Mix well.
- In a sauté pan over medium high, heat the coconut oil.
- Roll about 2 tablespoons/30 ml of the chicken mix into a ball. Then, coat it with the coconut and almond flour mixture, and flatten it slightly into a patty. Repeat with the remaining chix mix.
- In small batches, fry the patties in the heated coconut oil for 3-4 minutes per side.
- Transfer your Cuckoo for Coconut Chicken Patties to a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, and bake in your oven for 4-5 minutes to allow the chicken to cook through.
Serve these yummy patties with steamed broccoli and a baked sweet potato—or use your imagination! If you’re not eating paleo, you can melt some sharp cheddar cheese over that broccoli. Cheese makes anything taste better. And remember:
Low-fat is dead; go low-carb instead!
