Paleo Apple Recipe Roundup

Leaves are starting to turn and soon will be falling, football season is ramping up, and that can only mean 1 thing….Fall is right around the corner. We’ve still got our fair share of 90+ degree days here in Tennessee before it will officially feel like Fall, but I love this time of year. Here’s a roundup of 19 Paleo treats revolving around one of the Fall’s most notorious fruits, the apple.

APPLE DESSERTS/SWEET TREATS

Paleo Apple Butter

In our house, dessert is always on our minds, so of course we are starting there!

  1. Simple Crockpot Apple Pumpkin Butter – I mean who can say no to apples and pumpkins?
  2. Paleo Apple Pie Parfaits – It’s an apple pie in a jar! Yes please!
  3. Paleo Apple Cider Donut Holes
  4. Inverted Paleo Apple Pie – *NOTE: These contain flaxseeds, which for some with autoimmune issues can be a problem. I’m going to try substituting the flaxseed for ground almonds or additional pecans.
  5. Paleo Apple Pie Smoothie
  6. Apple Pie Chips
  7. Civilized Caveman’s Apple Cinnamon Cookies
  8. Paleo Apple Cinnamon Muffins
  9. Cinnamon Sugar Apple Noodles - *Use coconut sugar for a Paleo approved treat
  10. Apple Coconut Pudding
  11. Paleo Apple Crisp  - From our favorite childhood recipes

SAVORY APPLE DISHES

Sweet Potato and Apple Chili

Apples aren’t just for sweet treats, they can be delicious in savory dishes as well. Here’s a roundup of 8 of my favorites to try this Fall.

  1. Sweet Potato, Apple and Pancetta (or Bacon) Hash
  2. Crockpot Honey Pork and Apples – I’ve made this for dinner several times and it is oh so yummy!
  3. 3 Ingredient Apple Juice Chicken
  4. Apple and Butternut Squash Pulled Pork Casserole -- *The raisins are a take it or leave it ingredient.
  5. Crockpot Chicken with Apple and Sweet Potato
  6. Ham, Apple, and Sweet Potato Scramble
  7. Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Bacon and Apples -- *Trust me. Try brussel sprouts, even if you haven’t had them since being a kid. They are so delicious when roasted and have a sweet flavor.
  8. Easy Sweet Potato Apple Turkey Chili -- *Swap out the regular skim milk called for with coconut milk or almond milk for a 100% Paleo friendly chili recipe.
