These Paleo and Keto peppermint patties are perfect for parties or for storing in your fridge as mini treats. Even though they were barely sweetened, they taste fantastic, and the black and white layers really stand out and make them look cute and delicious.
Next time you’re going to a party and want to bring some desserts to impress the guests with, try taking these gorgeous layered peppermint patties – you’ll feel like a skilled chef rather than a home cook with these!
If you don’t like using stevia, then just add in a 1-2 tablespoons of raw honey instead. Of course, if you’re sticking to a ketogenic diet then you’ll need to take those extra grams of carbs into account.
If you’re diabetic or on a ketogenic diet, then it can be tough to find desserts to eat. That’s where this delicious almond butter fudge recipe comes in. It’s not only Paleo, but also Ketogenic (low carb and diabetic-friendly).
This fudge is sweetened with stevia, but you can omit sweeteners if you want or use other sweeteners of your choice. We think stevia is generally the best sugar-free option, but check that your stevia is pure and doesn’t contain other ingredients. If you’re not trying to stay sugar-free, then coconut sugar or maple syrup are good options for sweetening this fudge recipe.

I love it when people try this recipe and think it’s mashed potatoes. This amazing creamy Paleo side dish is made only from cauliflowers. Then by adding in coconut milk and ghee and blending it really really well, you can create a super creamy and delicious dish that will fool your family and friends.
If you’re not on AIP (Paleo Autoimmune Protocol), then add in a bit of vanilla extract or use alcohol-free vanilla extract. The vanilla really adds to this creamy cauliflower mash recipe.
This dish is also great for those looking to lose weight but miss their mashed potatoes or those who have blood sugar issues as this creamy cauliflower mash recipe is very low in carbohydrates, and the fats in the dish also helps to not spike your blood sugar.
Personally, I think it just tastes amazing. Even just thinking about it makes me hungry!
As the summer approaches, firing up the grill is an excellent option for creating fast and delicious meals. These grilled chicken skewers are easy to make and the garlic sauce is simply delicious with it.
Pasta was one of my staples during college. You just boil some pasta and dump some store-bought tomato sauce on top and dinner was ready. It was fast, easy, and quite delicious. Just not very healthy…
Then I realized I could recreate the same meal almost as quickly but with low carb, ketogenic, and Paleo ingredients!
There are tons of different ways to create Paleo pasta – from shirataki noodles, to cucumber noodles, to spiralized zucchini, to sweet potato noodles, to even using Paleo flours to roll out noodles of your own. And as for the tomato sauce, well that’s pretty easy too especially with some fresh basil leaves, which you can grow in a pot on your kitchen window sill.
And to make this recipe even more tasty and to add in some healthy fats, I added coconut milk into the tomato sauce.
So, next time you’re strapped for time to make dinner, try this creamy Paleo pasta recipe – it takes just 25 minutes from start to finish.
This is another recipe that my dad especially enjoys. It’s lightly sweetened with stevia and has a great flavor to it with the unsweetened cacao powder and unsweetened shredded coconut. When it first comes out of the oven, it’s pretty soft still, but you can let it dry out for longer by leaving it in the oven at a very low temperature or just by sitting it out. Or don’t bother waiting and just enjoy immediately.
There’s also some chia seeds in this recipe to help everything gel together better.
One of the things I’ve discovered traveling through Southeast Asia is that many of the delicious traditional recipes are often Paleo and AIP (often without intending to be) or can be made so very easily.
These make for a fantastic savory Paleo breakfast. And what’s even better is you can make these muffins in advance and heat one or two up in the morning as a quick meal. Or take them with you as a snack.
I used lemon thyme as the herb in this Paleo breakfast muffin recipe, but you can switch that with another herb of your choice – rosemary, Italian seasoning, chili pepper flakes could all work well.
This breakfast muffin recipe is also ketogenic-friendly and low carb, so it’s a great way to start your day.
This is an easy breakfast “granola” recipe, and it’s great if you’re looking to go sugar-free or on a ketogenic diet. You can also make a large batch of this ketogenic granola recipe in advance and eat it in the mornings like you would with other granola (except this recipe doesn’t contain oats).
And if you’re wondering why oats are not Paleo, then check out this article.
I was feeling a bit tired a few days ago and fearing that I had a cold coming down, I quickly made some nourishing Paleo chicken noodle soup. It’s just one of those foods that’s so comforting to eat!
Of course, instead of regular noodles, I used Paleo noodles – in this case zucchini noodles, which are really easy to make and taste really good in this soup.
My dad is diabetic, so I’m always trying to find ways to make tasty treats for him that won’t raise his blood sugar levels. This is one of them! A great way to add a bit of extra sweetness for your non-diabetic family and friends is to put in some raisins (or change the stevia to honey).
Jeremy and I recently visited France – it was an absolutely amazing trip filled with good food and even more excellent wine.
One of my favorite French dishes is duck confit, and it takes so long to make that I’ve never had the patience to make it myself (so I end up ordering it in restaurants whenever I see it on the menu). That’s why I got so excited when I saw ready-cooked duck confit being sold in Costco!
It was so easy to grill it at home and serve it on a bed of greens. If you spot it in Costco, I highly recommend getting it for an easy and delicious quick meal.
