Peppermint Chocolate Truffles {dairy-free, nut-free} by Our Paleo Life

Paleo Peppermint Chocolate Truffles

Typically, truffles are made with dairy, utilizing heavy cream to make the thick ganache filling. But for those of us with dairy-intolerances or that just follow the paleo diet for overall health, this can be a problem. To keep these dairy-free, we use full-fat coconut milk, which ensures that we’re dairy-free but still get all that creamy deliciousness in our ganache.

Chocolate Protein Pancakes {grain-free; dairy-free; nut-free}

Chocolate Protein Pancakes {grain-free; dairy-free}

I’ve been contemplating a pancake recipe for quite a while now. We’ve been cheating on paleo with a gluten-free recipe that’s made with rice flour, so it’s still gluten-free, just not strict paleo. I knew that we needed pancakes made with my all-time favorite Otto’s Naturals cassava flour instead, so I got to work. But, […]

Mini Molten Lava Cakes {primal, grain-free} | Our Paleo Life

Mini Molten Lava Cakes {primal, grain-free}

You know when something gets stuck in your head and you try to push it out but it keeps coming back? That’s the case with this molten lava cake. I had recently started a ketogenic diet and if you’re at all familiar with that, it is high in fat, low in carbs, and moderate in […]

Protein Breakfast Cookies {grain-free, egg-free, dairy-free} by Our Paleo Life

The Perfect Paleo Powder Review + Protein Breakfast Cookies

Many of you may know that our son was the cause for us finally taking the plunge into paleo. We had toyed with the idea for some time, even attempting the change a year earlier, but it wasn’t until we realized our son needed a change in his diet in order to help him control […]

Everyone's Favorite Banana Muffins {grain-free, dairy-free, nut-free} by Our Paleo Life

Everyone’s Favorite Banana Bread {grain-free, dairy-free, nut-free}

I can’t even begin to tell you how spoiled I am, but I’ll try anyway. I grew up in Florida, 27 years there. It’s hot, humid. Summer is the main season, the other 3 are just a fleeting thought. But that’s all I knew for 27 years. Then my husband ripped me from my hot, […]

Cherry Buttercream Frosting by Our Paleo Life

Cherry Buttercream Frosting

Have you ever had plans to do something, then something else happens that sidetracks you and it takes you a while to get back to it? Yeah, me too. Like this recipe. I’m actually embarrassed to say I started on it back in July 2014. Is 18 months too long of a sidetrack? Maybe it […]

Grain-Free Chocolate Mud Cake by Our Paleo Life

Grain-Free Chocolate Mud Cake {with Otto’s Cassava Flour}

This cake. I had planned on making this cake in celebration of my (gulp) 35th birthday (which is a week from tomorrow). But I couldn’t wait until my actual birthday to share this with you. I had to post it immediately. But let me just tell you, all the moms/grandmas/aunts/sisters/girls/women in your life would probably love you forever if you made them this cake for their birthday. Just saying…

Paleo Pudding Pops {dairy-free} by Our Paleo Life

Paleo Pudding Pops {dairy-free}

So here’s the deal. I know it’s practically October. And I know temperatures are dipping (although, let’s be honest, September in Colorado this year was stupid hot). BUT, that doesn’t mean we can’t still eat pudding pops. Because pudding pops are great and there is no right or wrong season for them. Last Sunday, I […]

Creamy Paleo Pudding, 4 Flavors {dairy-free}

Creamy Paleo Pudding, 4 Flavors {dairy-free}

I was really hoping to have another crazy chicken lady update today about chicken #2 laying her first egg, but she is still totally freeloading. As are the other 6 girls. Sigh… I spent a good portion of my weekend testing yeast breads. Ordinarily, this wouldn’t be too complicated for me. However, add in the […]

Super Paleo Cookies by Our Paleo Life

Super Paleo Cookies

These cookies are like a brownie with a crunch, they’re Super Paleo. Loaded with the good stuff, crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. Super Good!

Brewed Butter Chocolate {A Primal Coffee Alternative} by Our Paleo Life

Brewed Butter Chocolate {primal}

For personal reasons, we don’t drink coffee, though we do enjoy the occasional mug of herbal tea (mmm, peppermint is our favorite). I kept hearing about butter coffee, but since coffee’s not my thing, I never tried it, even though I love me some butter. I’m also not wild about large amounts of caffeine, so when I heard about brewing chocolate, which is naturally low in caffeine, I perked up a bit {see what I did there?}.

Perfect Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies by Merit + Fork for Our Paleo Life

Perfect Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies {by Merit + Fork}

Perfect Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies… where do I even begin?! Any paleo foodie, whether you’ve been of the paleo persuasion for a few months or several years, has sought out some sort of chocolate chip cookie recipe. Like most people, you’ve probably tried a handful of paleo cookie recipes yourself… or maybe you haven’t! (I simply can’t imagine that scenario. A cookie-less life is no life in my eyes.) Myself? I’ve tried at least 100 paleo cookie variations.

Caramel-Filled Chocolate Easter Eggs | Our Paleo Life

Caramel-Filled Chocolate Easter Eggs

I have been meaning to post this for quite a while now, but time got away from me as usual, and here we are, a mere 3 days away from Easter. But I promise, these little treats come together so quick (well, there is some cooling time, but still…) you could make them Saturday night […]

Mini Chocolate Hazelnut Tart {paleo, vegan, raw} | Our Paleo Life

Chocolate Hazelnut Tart {paleo, vegan, raw}

Life has been busy and I’ve taken a little hiatus from recipe making. We’ve been eating out a little too often and when I do cook dinner, I’ve been making some of our go-to favorites, like the Caveboy Casserole, Paleo Minestrone Soup, and Slow Roasted Pork Shoulder. They’re all super easy, everyone likes them, and […]
