Paleo Keto Almond Joy Chia Seed Pudding

I was so excited to receive a review copy of Craveable Keto Cookbook by my fellow blogger Kyndra from Peace, Love, and Low Carb. While I’m not keto, I do tend to eat low carb because my body feels best eating this way, so I couldn’t wait to dig into her amazing low carb recipes.

What I found was SO MUCH MORE. Not only is this cookbook filled with 145 delicious recipes, the other half of the book is jam packed with incredible resources about the ketogenic diet, Kyndra’s inspiring weight loss journey, 5 different weekly meal plans, as well as guides to snacking and navigating alcohol, how to stock your keto kitchen, and other helpful tips and tricks on transitioning to a low carb lifestyle. I couldn’t believe the amount of work and heart that Kyndra clearly poured into this book.

  4. Top with almonds, remaining 1/4 cup of coconut flakes, and chocolate chips, if desired, before serving.

Paleo Dill Pickle Dip

On game days and gatherings, this creamy and addicting dairy free and Paleo Dill Pickle Dip is just the thing all the pickle lovers will devour!

Paleo Dill Pickle Dip

Can’t believe the Super Bowl is less than a week away and I haven’t shared any game day recipes yet! Don’t worry though. I’m coming in hot with a fabulous dip recipe that I think you’ll love. This Paleo Dill Pickle Dip is dairy free but yet, still so creamy and addicting. And best of all, it is so easy to make. You just throw everything in the blender until it comes together.

A high speed blender works best with this recipe for that extra creamy texture, but if you don’t have one, just blend for several minutes until the grittiness of the almond flour goes away. I don’t have a fancy blender so that’s what I did. I kept blending for about 5 minutes while tasting it every minute, and the texture smoothed out perfectly by the end of it. I couldn’t stop eating it with some potato chips and fresh vegetables!

Also… did you notice that I added a nutrition info section to my newer recipes? You can find them below the instructions. I’ve had several requests from the readers for it and I debated long and hard whether I should add it or not, because I’m all about listening to the body and intuitive eating, instead of counting macros, calories, etc.

However, if you feel that it’ll help you one way or another, I’m happy to provide that information. Just be mindful that our body is not a math equation. Focus on quality over quantity, and really try to feel what your body is needing instead having to fit into a certain number goal. I plan to go back to my older posts to add the nutrition information for those as well, so let me know if there are any specific recipes that you want to see that data for more than others, and I’ll work on those first.

Anyway, hope you enjoy this quick and easy Paleo Dill Pickle Dip for your next gathering. It’s guaranteed to be a popular one, because after all, who doesn’t love pickles? The crunchy pickle and onion bits in the smooth dip just makes it a perfect texture and you won’t be able to stop with just one scoop.

Paleo Butter Pecan Keto Fat Bombs

New favorite snack alert! Since you guys have been loving my Chocolate Almond Butter Collagen Fat Bombs, I’m so excited to share another delicious fat bomb recipe with a flavor combo that I just can’t get enough of.

I’ve been loving these Butter Pecan Keto Fat Bombs so much in between meals to hold me over on busy weekdays ever since making them. I’m definitely not keto, but I do tend to do better on a lower carb diet. So when choosing my snacks, I like to keep them low in sugar and high in healthy fats to keep me satiated until the next meal. These fat bombs do just that while killing any sugar cravings that I may have.

You can use either butter or ghee for this recipes, but I do love the extra toasty and nutty flavor and smell of ghee so I highly recommend you use the latter. Also, many people who have a sensitivity to the lactose in butter usually find that they can tolerate ghee much better. If you want to make it at home, you can find my recipe here. It’s so nutritious and yummy, and make an excellent high heat cooking oil.

I also like to add in collagen whenever I can for that extra boost in nutrients. I just love Perfect Supplements‘ Hydrolyzed Collagen and it’s been working really well for me in my gut healing, as well as my hair, skin, and nail health. And for a limited time, you can take 10% off your entire purchase with Perfect Supplements using the code GREATGRANDMA10 at checkout!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup pecans
  • 1/4 cup coconut butter
  • 1/4 cup ghee or butter
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
  • Optional: sweetener of your choice I added about 7-8 drops of stevia. Omit if you are on a sugar detox.
  • Optional: 2 tbsp grass-fed collagen Use code GREATGRANDMA10 for 10% off your entire order

Instructions

  1. Heat a skillet over medium heat. 

  2. Add the pecans and toast them while constantly stirring. Transfer to a dish when the pecans are darker and smell toasty. They'll toast even more while cooling.

  3. Roughly chop the pecans. I like to leave them in larger chunks.

  4. In a small saucepan, combine coconut butter, ghee (or butter), and coconut oil and heat over low heat until melted.


  5. Stir in vanilla extract and sea salt, as well as a sweetener and/or grass-fed collagen, if using. 

  6. Divide the chopped pecans into a silicon mold of your choice. I filled them into 12 mini cubes.

  7. Pour the heated butter and coconut mixture over the pecans, dividing it evenly. 

  8. Freeze for at least 30 minutes until the fat bombs harden. 

  9. If you don't have a silicon mold, you can pour the mixture in a small container, freeze, then cut into bite-sized squares.

  10. Store in the freezer or the refrigerator.
