Grain-Free Stuffing With Sausage & Apples

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite family holidays.

The build-up and anticipation for that brief time with loved ones…

The great food that’s made its way to a large, carefully decorated table…

And everyone’s proudly shared a recipe that you can’t wait to sink your teeth into makes for beautiful memories.

My favorite part of the Thanksgiving meal?

The stuffing!  The gooey, warm, tasty, starchy goodness that proudly shares the plate with all the other delicious sides. Thanksgiving just isn’t Thanksgiving without it!

Paleo, Grain-Free Stuffing

I love bread, but sadly, bread doesn’t love me. A paleo, grain-free lifestyle has become my new normal since I had to make some dietary changes.

I didn’t think I could ever have stuffing again — until now.

This stuffing recipe gives me the same satisfaction that I got from my childhood’s bread stuffing, yet it has so much more to offer.

The coconut breadcrumbs replace the gluten-filled breadcrumbs in this stuffing and offer lots of fiber and protein, without the grains. Coconut flour is one of my staple flours now that I have adopted the paleo lifestyle. It is a great flour for people with digestive challenges.

Coconut Flour In Paleo Stuffing

Wildly Organic Coconut Flour is made from the coconut meat of matured coconuts. The meat is scraped out from the inside and the milk is then separated from the meat. The meat is then dried at a very low temperature; once dried, the meat is ground into a fine flour. It is unlike gluten-filled flours, for it has no binder.

Eggs are the most convenient binder, however, for those with egg sensitivities, flax gel, aquafaba, or psyllium husks work as egg replacements, too.

If you love stuffing as much as I do, then you too might enjoy this satisfying, grain-free, paleo stuffing.

Have you ever attempted paleo stuffing?
