Easter Recipe Inspiration Listicle (AIP/Paleo)

Easter Recipe Listicle

The Easter bunny is coming…

Way back in 2015 I created a wee Easter Recipe Inspiration Listicle. And, it’s been receiving a little love of late. Not surprising, really – given the time of year!

Given it’s been four years since that first one was published, and there are so many more AIP-esque recipe developers around the traps, I thought I’d see what new inspiration I could find and share some of the possible Easter recipe love…

And, I’ve been a bit cheeky and popped in a couple of mine, too!

“If it wasn’t for chocolate, there would be a lot of unhappy people in the world.”
― Anthony T. Hincks

Easter for me is hot cross buns and chocolate – neither of which are on the menu for AIPers. At least, not in their original state!

There’s a combination of both AIP and AIP reintroduction/Paleo recipes in this list. They are all grain free, whole food numbers and all things that tickle my particular fancy…

I hope they tickle yours, too. Happy Easter!
