These Sweet Potato Bites w/Candied Bacon are the perfect appetizer for holiday gatherings, or for a small plates meal. And they’re Paleo/AIP!Jump to Recipe
It’s so easy at this time of year for self-care (especially diet) to go off the rails. Oh the temptations! Gatherings can be particularly tricky to navigate. We want to participate, to be social, and to enjoy the nostalgia tied to the foods we eat.
Here’s an idea to save you in situations like this. If the person hosting the gathering is open to the idea, you could bring something to share. And if YOU are the person hosting, well you’re in luck! Serve whatever you want! Nobody has to know that it’s Paleo/AIP food. 😉
I’m a big fan of these sweet potato bites. They are just the right balance of starch, saltiness and sweetness, which is ideal for an appetizer. Practically speaking, if folks are drinking, these are perfect because they balance carbs, fat, and protein. People won’t get tipsy too fast on an empty stomach!

Though there may be fewer gatherings this year, this recipe is a good one to have in your back pocket. It can also be used in a small plates situation. You could even serve them with a beautiful green salad (e.g. Apple Fennel Salad). Get creative! 😀
As always, I’m wishing you great love and deep healing!
P.S. We have entered cookie decorating season. This activity can be easier because there is now an AIP cut-out sugar cookie mix! For reals! My friends at Eat G.A.N.G.S.T.E.R. are letting me give you 10% off to try their cookie and cake mixes. Just use my secret code WENDISAIPKITCHEN. Here’s the link to check them out:
