When you are on a Paleo diet, this means you can’t get to indulge on desserts, right? Wrong! Sure, Paleo practitioners have a real lack of options when it comes to desserts but in reality, it’s not that bad. You’d be surprised that there are many dessert recipes that are actually Paleo-friendly. Today, we will share some dessert recipes that you won’t believe to be Paleo-friendly.
Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies (by Yoh Can Cook)
• 1 1/2 cups sifted blanched almond flour
• 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
• 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
• 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
• 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 1/4 cup maple syrup
• 1 whole egg
• 1/2 cup Enjoy Life chocolate chips
1. Let egg and maple syrup come to room temperature, about 30 minutes.
2. Mix the dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, salt) together in a bowl.
3. Mix the wet ingredients (coconut oil, vanilla extract, maple syrup, egg) together in a separate bowl.
4. Pour the wet into the dry. Incorporate well.
5. Mix in the chocolate chips. Throw in the fridge to cool for 30 minutes.
6. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
7. Spoon batter onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet.
8. Throw in oven for 7 minutes. Push down the top of the cookies with the back of a spatula (gives them a better shape – not necessary). Continue baking for 5 more minutes.
9. Let cool, and enjoy!
Blueberry Espresso Brownies (by Civilized Caveman Cooking)
Here’s a rather unusual combination of ingredients but it all adds up to a delicious Paleo treat.
• 1 Cup Coconut Cream Concentrate MELTED (and a bit leftover for drizzling)
• 3 Eggs
• 1/2 Cup Raw Organic Honey
• 1/4 Cup Organic Cocoa Powder
• 1 Tbsp Cinnamon
• 1 Tbsp Ground Coffee of your choice
• 2 Tsp Vanilla Extract
• 1/2 Tsp Baking Soda
• 1/4 Tsp Sea Salt
• 1 Cup Blueberries
1. Preheat your oven to 325 Degrees F.
2. Place coconut cream concentrate (coconut butter), eggs, honey, cocoa powder, cinnamon, coffee, vanilla, baking soda, and sea salt together in a mixing bowl.
3. Use your hand mixer or stand mixer to mix all your ingredients until well blended.
4. Once ready, fold in your blueberries by hand so you don’t crush them all.
5. Pour your batter into a greased 9×13 baking dish (grease with coconut oil) or into greased individual mini muffin pans like I did.
6. Place in the oven and bake for approximately 30 minutes. At about 25 minutes, do the toothpick test and judge how much longer you need.
7. Remove from oven, let cool.
8. Once cool, use some melted Coconut Cream Concentrate and drizzle all over your brownies.
9. Cut and Enjoy.
