Who says Paleo has to be boring or stripped of treats and indulgences?
In moderation, all with some modifications, so many favorites can be enjoyed! After experimenting and taste testing, our family believes we have the most awesome chocolate chip cookie recipe out there! It has become a household staple for most friends and has endured some of the toughest NEVER GONNA GO PALEO critics, and yet even they love them!
This recipe originated from the Paleo Plan website, and has since evolved and is reflected below. I hope you enjoy every delicious morsel of goodness!
You know those Fall days that are just begging you to sit down with a hot coffee (or cocoa) and a warm, baked treat, relax, and snuggle up in a blanket and just enjoy the beauty of the outdoors?! I look forward to these wonderful days all year! And definitely more than the snow to come here in Utah!
Anyway, on one of these nights, as my family was preparing to carve pumpkins, we baked this recipe by Juli (www.paleomg.com). I actually feel kinda bad I don’t post more recipes from other people, but I just love so much of what she puts out! (Does that sound wrong?)
To us, this recipe is basically a cupcake version of chocolate chip cookies with a chocolate glaze on top! And it has great consistency and bounce and is perfectly sweet!

As you all should know by now, I seriously love PaleOMG! For me and those I feed, her recipe success rate is in the 80-90% range with very little dislikes. She is my “go-to girl”, when it comes to cooking or baking! So before I recommend yet another delicious recipe of Juli’s, I want to encourage you to checkout her website for yourself: http://www.paleomg.com!
Ok, this evening I threw this slider recipe together and absolutely loved it! There was lots of flavor, and the bacon stayed on wonderfully and served as the perfect highlight to the slider (of course! It’s bacon!). This recipe was recommended for breakfast, but I prepared it for dinner and paired it with our favorite Terra chips. It was great! We are so excited to have the leftovers tomorrow morning with an egg on top! Enjoy this quick and yummy recipe!
Do you ever have a mad craving for chicken nuggets, while pursing Paleo? I DO! This recipe from PaleOMG totally gives you your fix! Great texture and taste! The dipping sauce is pretty tasty too.
I like this recipe because it uses coconut flour, as compared to many that require almond meal (which is seriously going up in price). I got my coconut flour at The Good Earth, which is a local health food store chain. It was a while ago, so I can’t quote the price.
Try this out and ENJOY!!!
P.S. My kids LOVE this things too!
Hi all! Well with summer time stealing my time and energy, I found myself looking for something fresh and quick, but super yummy! I found this recipe at chowbellabycassie.blogspot.com and it became love at first taste! The dressing is the icing on the cake (Ha! A carb comment on a paleo blog, lol!). Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
*The recipe includes olives, but we don’t like them so we left them out.
For the meat:
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/4 cup finely diced onion
- 1 lb ground beef (preferably grass-fed)

- 1 tsp paprika
- 1/2 tsp chili powder
- 4 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
- salt and pepper, to taste
For the salad:
- 1 head iceberg lettuce, coarsely shredded (I used romaine)
- 2 large tomatoes, diced
- 2 2.25-oz can sliced black olives, drained (left out)
- 1/2 cup prepared salsa

My mom has been visiting us for the past month and came equipped with her beloved meatloaf recipe, converted paleo-style! We had it tonight for dinner and it was easy to prepare and went perfectly well with mashed cauliflower from Paleo Comfort Foods!!!
I tried this recipe from PaleOMG a few weeks ago and it was devoured quickly! Wait a minute! Ok, to be honest, I made this recipe … Continue reading Buffalo Chicken and Sweet Potato Meatza
OK, I made this on Saturday and it was SERIOUSLY YUMMY, but I didn’t take pictures because I predicted an epic failure on my part (didn’t think I had enough sauce or squash). HOWEVER, it turned to be a huge success and was mildly spicy and quite delicious! I also want to add that I am not a huge fan of squash, in general, but in this recipe you really can’t even taste it, but it provides a fantastic substitute for lasagna noodles. The squash is slightly sweet, soft, and appeals to the lasagna-lover (which I am)!
I tried this recipe from EveryDay Paleo and really enjoyed it! I admit, it doesn’t look like much, but I recommend it! AND as I look … Continue reading Balsamic Mustard Chicken

Have split chicken breasts you need to cook? You can buy them for like $0.99/lb., so you should!
Anyways, I have baked, broiled, and pan-fried them, but tonight I was SERIOUSLY craving my mom’s chicken tacos! As a kid, my step dad and I would compete for who could eat the most, the fastest (I know sexy, huh?). Don’t ask about how many I could eat either! I so LOVED the crispy corn tortillas full of moist shredded chicken, that was dressed with refried beans, lettuce (see, it was healthy! Ha, Ha!) and cheese – YUM!!!
Well, I can’t eat that way and see my feet, so tonight I tried a Paleo version of my beloved favorite and it turned out great! Even my 9-year old said they tasted like my mom’s tacos; well,of course, minus the tortillas, beans, and cheese.
Here’s what I did…

I made this last night, with a few modifications:
- I used 4 split chicken breasts and put them in a ziploc bag, and hit them with a mallet to make them thinner and easier to pan fry.
- I did not have mushrooms, but I had everything else. I bet this would’ve been even better with them!
I recommend making this my way, or with the thighs like in Juli’s recipe! She is so creative, so go for it!

Ok before I tell you what is on sale, I wanted to let you know that I have seen some cool things at Target lately – specifically processed meats that are nitrite and nitrate free, or free of casing. Now I am the first to admit these should not be a main part of the Paleo diet, but they do come in handy for breakfast meat and quick snacks for my kids. So not that I am encouraging this behavior (he, he), but if you are looking, here is what you can expect to find at Target:
ARCHER FARMS Brand:
- Various chicken sausage that is free of the cancerous nitrites & nitrates, and is casing free. They look like this:
As you have noticed, I have been on a big PaleOMG kick – and it has continued! We had some friends over last night, and I threw these together and they were delicious!!!
Soft, sweet (but not too sweet), moist, and truly awesome! I did not make any adjustments and they came out perfect! These made 12 muffins for me.
