Gluten Free Chicken Nuggets

This recipe is dedicated to my sister. Whenever we use to go out to each when we were younger, up until she was in high school, her favorite meal to get from restaurants was either chicken nuggets or chicken fingers. I saw this recipe and I had to try to make it because now my sister is actually gluten free. Very easy, fast, and tasty. A great meal for kids or even an after school snack.

  • 1/4 cp. almond flour
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1/8 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/4 cp. coconut oil, melted
