Quick & Easy Paleo Lasagna Cupcakes

Jump to recipe

I have a confession: I can’t stand traditional lasagna, but it’s one of Ish’s favorite dishes…which means that I couldn’t just completely avoid it.

Instead, I needed to figure out a way for Ish to have one of his favorite meals and figure out a way that I would be able to eat it, too. So I got to work.

I was on a mission! We’ve tried zucchini, eggplant, and even skillet lasagna. Not quite what I was looking for. Ish kept insisting that it was delicious, but I think that he just didn’t want to sleep on the couch. So, after months of experimenting, I ran across a Petite Lasagna recipe. BINGO.

Those little cuties looked like lasagnas that weren’t actual lasagnas! They looked like little savory cupcakes. I can do this. Now I just needed figure out how to make it paleo-friendly. Guess what?

I did it! These babies are awesome, filling, and they freeze well.

It’s the perfect paleo trifecta!

Add in a romaine salad or some steamed veggies, and you’ve got yourself a deliciously hearty and healthy meal in mere minutes.

The best part about these is that they’re really quick to make, in fact, I usually make them up in the morning and stick them in the fridge until about 20 minutes before I need to have dinner in the oven.

    I was looking at the recipe and was wondering if you could sub coconut oil for the coconut butter? This recipe sounds so good!

      It’s DELISH! I would not sub coconut butter-it’s not the same as oil. If you don’t have coconut oil, you could sub Ghee or lard without a problem! Enjoy 🙂
