Paleo Dessert Recipes
Do you have a sweet tooth? I know I do and so I look forward to finishing my meal off with a nice dessert.
There are many Paleo dessert recipes available. I have even seen a recipe for a pie crust which looking through the ingredients would be suitable for both sweet and savory pies. I am told though that the pie crust is not easy to work with as it is so ‘short’. You will need the patience of a Saint to work with it, but the results are quite amazing.
I am forever surprised by what people have made while sticking faithfully to paleo. A little bit of experimenting is called for when it comes to making a substitution in recipes that have been round for a couple of centuries.
I have seen pies, chocolate cakes, cheesecakes, nut butter, sweet potato and date paste being used in Paleo dessert recipes. The list goes on so it is get the basics then experiment with fruits and spices to find something you really like.
Here are a couple of simple Paleo dessert recipes.
Popsicles (ice lollies in UK)
1 6 oz can of pineapple juice
1 can of coconut milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
Mix all ingredients in a blender. Pour into popsicle shells, freeze, and enjoy!
You may have to soak the Popsicle tray in a little bit of warm water before you can can get them out.
As you can see this is a very simple recipe and I am sure the children will love the popsicles.
Gluten & Dairy Free Apple Crumble
1 1/2 C almond flour
3 tsp cinnamon divided
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 C coconut oil
2 Tbs maple syrup
3 tsp vanilla extract
3 apples, peeled, cored then chopped into 1/2 inch pieces
1 C unsweetened apple sauce
1. In one bowl combine flour, nutmeg, salt and 1 tsp of cinnamon. In another bowl combine oil, syrup and vanilla. You may need to warm the coconut oil until it’s a liquid.
2. Stir wet ingredients into dry to make the topping.
3. Place apples in a 1-2 qt glass dish then sprinkle them with remaining cinnamon. Pour apple sauce on top of apples.
4. Crumble topping over apples.
5. Cover and bake at 350 for about 45 minutes. When filling is bubbling up around crisp, remove cover and bake for another 5-8 minutes until crisp is golden.
Just because you have decided to go Paleo doesn’t mean you have to give up on deserts as the Paleo dessert recipes show you. Here I have chosen just two of the many recipes available.
