While following the Paleo Diet involves avoiding processed sugars, grains, dairy, and legumes, that doesn’t mean that you can’t eat ANY treats any more. Here we take a look at a few creative Paleo desserts and treats that will have you drooling in no time.
Paleo Chocolate Bark
From the blog Eat Drink Paleo comes an amazing recipe for chocolate bars that are completely Paleo. The ingredients are simple, and so’s the preparation. And in no time you’ll have your very own homemade chocolate that rivals some of the best on the market. Take a look at the recipe.
Here’s another great recipe from the Paleo blog So Let’s Hang Out. This is a great recipe for cookies that are made primarily of nut butters. She incorporates sunflower seed butter and almond butter with maple syrup as a sweetener. These are terrific looking cookies. Click here for the recipe.
This recipe is a show stopper. Incorporating of all things, sweet potatoes and olive oil, these brownies are unbelievably most and delicious.
