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


Paleo Granola

Paleo Granola by Swiss Paleo

I remember when I use to chow down on granola. I thought I was being so health conscious…I guess it could have been worse. Sorry, I digress, but in all my granola munching days, I really learned to love the stuff. It was perfect for a snack or the late night munchies. I have really missed it since going Paleo. That is why I am really pumped to have stumbled across this recipe. It tastes just like regular granola. Honestly I can’t tell the difference. It’s good to eat dry or drizzled with coconut milk. I prefer to eat mine with coconut milk (and a little drizzle of honey if I’m looking for an extra-special treat).
I did tweak the original recipe a bit. I was out of dried cranberries so I just didn’t put them in (I probably never will now!). I also adjusted the baking time and temp. I put mine in the oven for 12-15 minutes at 350 degrees F. Be sure to toss at least once or the outside edges will burn! Enjoy!
*I like to store this in an air-tight container in the fridge. It helps it to stay fresh longer.

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.

12 Days of Christmas Cookies- Day 5: Paleo Gingersnaps

Posted on

If it was left up to me and my taste buds, I would give you 12 days of treats involving chocolate!!! I recognize that not all people out there are chocoholics like me, so I give you Paleo Gingersnaps! I give you a warning with these! Do not try to move them until they have COMPLETELY cooled. Otherwise they will fall apart into a crumbly mess! The other solution is to buy the almond butter that is made fresh at the store….I’m too impatient and lazy for this option, so I just wait for them to cool! :)

Note: I couldn’t find crystalized ginger, so I bought uncrystalized candied ginger (yes, it does contain some sugar) and threw it in the food processor and chopped it like I would my dates for other recipes.

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! :)

Paleo Maple Almond Butter Snack Packs

Posted on

If your kids are anything like mine, they will fall in love with snack foods that are way too pricey for everyday consumption. Justin’s squeezable maple almond butter packs are one of these said snacks. That is why I am so pumped to find a homemade version of this tasty snack! I throw everything in the food processor , blend and scoop out portions into snack size baggies! Genius! My only issue is that I haven’t figured out how to make these more portable. To serve, I cut one corner of the baggie and my kids squeeze the almond butter into their mouths. Since I don’t carry a pair of scissors on me everywhere I go, it limits the portability of this snack…ok maybe I’ll just go buy a small pair of scissors to carry in my purse!
