Pumpkin Cake Bars with Cinnamon Icing by Food Renegade

This is one of those Paleo desserts that you can serve to anyone. I have tested this theory several times. My husband claims this dessert as THE BEST dessert I have ever made. I think I have a clue as to why…Bees all over the world are praying that this recipe doesn’t take off because it uses about an entire bee hive’s worth of honey! So-delicious? Yes! Should it make an everyday occurrence? No! (or yes, but don’t be surprised when your jeans don’t fit after about a week!)

It’s a pretty simple recipe to whip up. Throw all your cake ingredients in a bowl and beat it with an electric mixer. While it’s baking, throw all your icing ingredients into a bowl and beat that. Yes, you can use a whip, but make your life easier and use a hand mixer!

Tweaks: I added 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg to icing


Day 12: Magic Bars

Posted on

Well, Day 12 is finally here! I hope you have enjoyed all of the wonderful paleo treats I have posted. Personally, I have gained about 5 pounds…sugar is still sugar any way you want to look at it! That being said…I have saved the best for last…Paleo Magic Bars! Let me just say that these little bits of heaven are truly magical! They actually taste exactly like their non-paleo counterpart! These little babies require a little extra work, so not a quick dessert…but definitely worth the time put into them. The most time-consuming part is actually making your own sweetened condensed milk ( which I didn’t even know a Paleo version was possible!). I hope you enjoy these as much as I did (I blame at least 3 pounds on this dessert alone!)

Note: I used coconut cream instead full fat coconut milk for the sweetened condensed milk.

Day 11: Chocolate Coconut Stacks

Posted on

Another super easy, super yummy, no bake recipe from PaleOMG. Very similar directions to the No Bake Cookies I posted.

Note: After I mixed everything together, I stuck my bowl in the fridge for about 1/2 hour. It seemed to be the perfect consistency then to scoop into balls.

Day 10: Triple Chocolate Truffles

Posted on

I never though I would hear the words Paleo and Truffles in the same sentence…like EVER. These little truffles are wonderful bits of heaven. I don’t know if my food processor is about to die on me, I have been chopping too many dates, or I am just too impatient and didn’t chop the pumpkin seeds long enough,  but my pumpkin seeds did not turn into a fine meal. They are basically just finely chopped. Nonetheless, they are still amazing.

Day 9: Coconut Klondike Bites

Posted on

Yes, I am totally aware that I missed Day 8. All I can say is…I’m sorry. As my name states, I am a BUSY Paleo Mom. Two kids diagnosed with pink eye equals no Day 8 recipe for you :( Anyway…on to Day 9! Coconut Klondike Bites! These fellas are so easy to make (very similar to the Double Layer Fudge), they are also just super cute! They look like a coconut Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup!

Day 7: Caramel Pecan Bars

Posted on

I am getting seriously fat from all the delicious treats I have been making…straight up fat! I really hope you guys appreciate it! Anywho…here’s another delicious one fromPaleOMG. It doesn’t contain chocolate, but it is very rich and tasty.

Note: I used regular pitted dates (about 15)…I told you I was feeling lazy! You don’t have to soak them, and they are already pitted. :)

Day 4: Magic Brownie Bars

Posted on

My husband’s favorite dessert is a thing call “Boo Boo Pie” from a little restaurant called Patti’s 1880s Settlement in Kentucky. It is filled with cups and cups of sugar, sweetened condensed milk and other yummy but awful, unhealthy things! Needless to say, he has not had this dessert since we went Paleo two years ago. Well, Christmas has come early for dear ole’ hubby this year with the discovery of this tasty treat! It tastes just like his beloved “Boo Boo Pie”. It’s fairly easy to make…again you are going to make friends with that wonderful food processor! That’s where you mix the entire brownie part!

Day 3: No Bake Paleo Cookies

Posted on

Before going Paleo, I use to make a version of this with oatmeal and peanut butter. I think I actually like this Paleo version better! I have an aversion to using olive oil in baked goods, so I did substitute the olive oil with coconut oil. I think this made it a little more runny- I just had to wait about 30 minutes after mixing it together to scoop it onto the parchment paper. It was still delicious!

Day 2: Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies

Posted on

I have searched for a good Paleo substitute for chocolate chip cookies since I went Paleo over 2 years ago! This one has finally resulted in the end of my search! I got this recipe from my friend, Stacey (who is an awesome Paleo baker!). It calls for a mixture of coconut flour, blanched almond flour and almond meal. Using the almond meal is basically a way to cut down cost, since the meal is about half the price, but you could use all blanched almond meal instead if you wish!

Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookie

Ingredients:

    • 1/3 cup coconut flour
    • 1 cup almond meal (can use blanched almond flour for this portion, too)
    • 1 2/3 cup blanched almond flour
    • 1/3 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/3 teaspoon baking powder
    • 2 eggs
    • 1/2 cup coconut oil
    • 1/2 cup maple syrup
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla
    • 1/2 – 1 cup Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
  2. Mix all dry ingredients in small bowl
  3. Mix all wet ingredients in medium bowl. Fold dry ingredients into the wet. Add chocolate chips.
  4. Scoop tablespoon size balls on baking sheet. (I line my sheet with parchment paper)
  5. Bake for 8-10 minutes.

Note: These cookies do not spread like normal chocolate chip cookies do. They maintain their ball shape.

12 Days of Christmas Cookies: Day 1- Double Layer Fudge

Posted on

This is officially my favorite dessert! It is stupid good and super easy to make. You simply put everything in the food processor, blend and freeze! Told you it was easy! It is so good that you could take this to any holiday party and NO ONE will complain that it is a Paleo dessert. It’s also freezable, so go on and make a double batch!

Note: I used a 8×8 glass baking dish. I was concerned that I would have trouble getting the squares out once I froze them, but I didn’t! :)
