Coconut recipes?


I am looking for recipes that I could use as a high-fat snack... so anybody have any recipes that incorporate high (good) fats? 



  1. Egg salad and tuna salad are my go to high fat snacks made with a homemade olive oil mayo. I often eat it with a fork, but add some lettuce if you want to get fancy. Deviled eggs or bumps on a log with almond butter are a good choice. Caveman custards are highish fat with coconutty goodness. I add a little vanilla extract to the recipe and top with sliced almonds, berries, or sometimes some cinnamon. You can buy jars of coconut cream and just have a spoon or two of that. Coconut milk over berries is also a nice choice. Coconut kefir is tasty. Mark Sission has a coconut milk yogurt recipe. I haven't tried it yet so no promises.

    1. Mayo - sometimes vegan - plus a protein. Egg, chicken, turkey, beef, ham... (In don't do fish myself). I usually have a few tubs of each to spread or dip (pork rinds). Add veggies like bell peppers, celery, onions, and/or spices to taste.

  2. Here you go:

  3. My favorite thing is protein pancakes- many people argue that you aren't supposed to use paleo foods to make modern day things (like pancakes and pizza) but I do it because it works for me.
    1 cup of egg whites
    1/2 cup of coconut milk
    1/2 cup coconut oil
    1 cup almond meal
    1 cup of coconut flour

    Mix it all together and fry up like pancakes (or you can bake them like little muffins). May need to add more liquid! You can add spices too (cinnamon, nutmeg, etc)

  4. I know you are looking for coconut recipes but what about guacamole? I have been using this as add on to salads and with raw veggies. Not sure the kids will like it though?

  5. have you been to dessert stalker. Its a site that has paleo and primal friendly desserts.

  6. Yellow squash cut into chips and primal ranch dressing

    Fast and easy...and allows me to finish cooking dinner while little primates try to hassle me about taking too long in the kitchen.

  7. I think you should check out Matthew and Stacey and their three boys are paleo/primal and have a huge amount of recipes for keeping ALL of them full. Their blogs are funny and are always sharing great recipes, plus you can see how they have turned their whole family into primal eaters.

  8. i've used a lot of these recipes. the "pudding"/ fudge recipe is great! and there are lots of savory recipes too.
    Tropical Traditions (the site that it's paired with) is a really great quality coconut products too. I like them on FB and they always announce when they have free shipping (once a month or so) and I stock up on stuff then.

  9. If you're using dairy, deli thin sliced roast beef spread with cream cheese mixed with minced green onion then rolled up is delicious and kids like it. Babybell cheeses are good too, expensive but my son can handle dairy so they're worth it. Berries are a great after school snack and I don't mind if my kids eat an entire container of them, which they do. I just get them on sale, whatever berries are on sale and have them ready. Pepperoni and salami slices are very high in fat and we eat them occasionally. Sometimes we make "chips" out of the pepperoni by putting lots of them on a paper towel on a plate in the micro and cooking until they are crisp but not burnt. Takes some watching and we remove each one as they are done. It's fun as well as filling!
    I'd just eat a can of sardines or tuna myself but I know kids are a little more difficult.
    Love your blog, btw. One of my favorites now.

  10. On a different kind of diet (Game On Diet Game), I was using avocado for my healthy fat. I started using it to replace butter and/or mayonaisse.
