Main Ingredients

3 cups okra, sliced into half-inch rounds

2 eggs, beaten

1/2 cup cornmeal

1/2 cup almond flour

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

2 tablespoons of duck fat (yeah, i said it), coconut oil, or lard


1Preheat oven to 475 degrees.

2Slice okra into half-inch slices, removing tops from each.

3In medium bowl, whisk eggs. Pour okra over eggs and coat okra in eggs.

4In a gallon-sized baggie, add cornmeal, almond flour, salt, and pepper. Zip closed and shake ingredients until well-combined.

5Gradually add okra into baggie, about a half cup at a time. Shake until coated. Then repeat until all okra is coated in the bag. If needed, add a little more cornmeal and almond flour into baggie.

6Spoon cooking fat onto rimmed sheet pan. Place in preheated oven for 3-5 minutes until pan and oil are heated.

7Remove sheet pan from oven and tilt pan to ensure fat has coated the entire surface.

8Spread okra in an even layer on sheet pan.

9Bake for 15 minutes. Gently stir okra, and replace in oven for 5-10 minutes longer, until okra is golden.

10Enjoy with ketchup, Paleo ranch, or just plain.

Additional Notes

Cornmeal is technically not Paleo. I use it in moderation, and I think it adds fantastic texture to the recipe. However, if you want to be strict Paleo, you could just double the almond flour.
