Paleo Crock Pot Cooking
Paleo-ish Bananas Foster
This dish was adapted from My Paleo Crockpot. This week has been pretty experimental and probably a lot more than a 25% margin of error. Saturday night ended with this sweet treat, after a day of working, which I am not used to doing on Saturday. It was a great weekend of paleo crock pot cooking.
Because I am not one to be constrained by a recipe, I ball parked some of the measurements. (T= tablespoon)
1 heaping T coconut oil
1 T lemon juice
3 T honey
Pumpkin pie spice (a teaspoon-ish amount)
Mix together coconut oil, lemon juice, honey, pumpkin pie spice on high until melted and mixed. Cut the bananas into 1/4″ pieces and toss with the mixture, turn crock pot on low and cook for an hour and a half.
Cilantro Chili Lime Chicken
See end of post for a photo of the raw stuff in the slow cooker!
This recipe was taken from Paleo Crock Pot with a little bit of improvising on my part. So I took:
5 Chicken breasts
3/4 cup lime juice
1 Trader Joes cilantro packages
Chopped garlic (1/2 a root)
I let the Chicken breasts marinate in the line juice, chopped cilantro, chili powder, chopped ginger, garlic salt mixture overnight.
In the morning I threw all of this on the crock pot to cook on low for about 8 hours with a whole lime with holes poked in it. The result- excellent. The only change I would make into maybe not put the whole lime in the crock pot with it. It did something different to the flavor- a little something I could have lived without!
Another website to visit for Paleo dishes is PaleOMG. The author has some amazing recipes. Again, because I’m like a bull in a china shop in my kitchen, cooking with week less abandon, I dod not follow this recipe exactly, but the result were really good. I’ll tell you what I did, then you can hop on over to her page and see what you’re supposed to do!
2 sweet potatoes
Generous heap of coconut oil to grease the crock pot
Roll of sausage

Basically, I whisked my eggs in the crock pot, and threw in all the ingredients! Mix really really well. Then I cooked on high for about three hours, then low for two. It made my tummy happy this morning!
Tonight’s crock pot Paleo adventure is Forty Clove Garlic Chicken breasts, derive from the Julia Child recipe. I found this on another website which I will give credit to, and of course add my own twist.
Try out these recipes. They were great!
