There was a week of my life that I became addicted to coconut. In some memory I’ve now lost is the reason why I first used coconut cream on a watermelon radish. There’s most likely a starved human grabbing for anything in oral vicinity memory in a pensieve somewhere. Lemon was juiced on top of goat cheese and salted watermelon radish for mouthbliss already, so why not try lemon on coconut instead? So much mouth happiness came that day. Oh my creamy fresh wonders.
I spent an entire afternoon testing and perfecting this recipe (you can see all the photos of my tests at the bottom of the post), and this recipe came out the clear winner. So, enjoy!
Like the name suggests, this 5-Min Microwave Paleo Chocolate Cake recipe is super fast and easy to make – in 5 minutes, you can enjoy Paleo chocolate cake again! And if you love this recipe, check out my microwave Paleo bread recipe as well (it’s also really easy!).

Cheese was one of the last foods I stopped eating after starting a Paleo diet – it was simply too hard to resist at first.
Luckily, I found cashew cheese as an easy and delicious replacement. Give it a try and pin the infographic below on how to make cashew cheese so you don’t forget – it’s super easy to make and has a nice creamy texture very much like cream cheese. In fact, it also looks very similar to cream cheese.
My favorite use for cashew cheese is in this recipe for bacon wrapped dates stuffed with cashew cheese.
I used to love bacon wrapped dates stuffed with cheese – we would always make them as an appetizer when guests came over. But since going Paleo, I’ve had to change the recipe to get rid of the regular dairy cheese. Instead, I’ve replaced it with this amazing cashew cheese.
For steps on how to make cashew cheese, take a look at this recipe.
I am eating my way through a bowl of this as I type, and I can’t help smiling – it is such a happy dish with the essence of spring in a bowl.

This is such an easy recipe, but it’s such a great snack! Even though I used 100% chocolate in this recipe, it’s still delicious. All 42 chocolate covered pecan halves went super fast.

While you don’t have to eat any Paleo snacks on a Paleo diet, sometimes they can be essential to prevent you from falling off the diet!

So, here’s our list of the best Paleo snacks for all occasions. There are 10 that you can buy from the store or from Amazon (in the US and sometimes Canada – we’ll put together a list of our best Paleo snacks that you can buy in the UK soon and also a separate AIP snacks list!), and there are also 27 Paleo snack recipes that you can make in under 30 minutes.
And if you’re looking for snacks for a long flight, then check out this list instead.
One of my most popular recipes is my slow cooker bacon and chicken recipe, so I started thinking one day how else I could combine bacon and chicken into one delicious creation. And that’s how this recipe was born.
You might have already seen a version of this recipe that I guest posted on Mark’s Daily Apple, but here’s a version that’s even easier and completely AIP.
I call it Garlic Bacon Wrapped Chicken Bites – super descriptive I know!
I was frying some eggs one day and pondering what to eat with my fried eggs when I saw some avocados in our fruit bowl.
I’d once come across a recipe for grilled avocados, so somehow my brain connected some dots and went:
Why not fry some avocado slices in coconut oil!
I’ve always loved chicken salad recipes – you can make a large batch and store them easily in the fridge. And they’re great as a quick snack, a side dish, or even an entire meal if you’re hungry!
But most chicken salad recipes involve mayo (recipe here), which is not only a hassle to make on a Paleo diet but also isn’t AIP-friendly if you have autoimmune issues (read more about AIP here and get the AIP Food List here).
And onto this AIP chicken salad recipe…
