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.

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.

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!

These little bites are very similar to the Pumpkin Spice Lara Bar recipe I posted at Thanksgiving, except they are much more chocolaty! (I’m not sure if that’s a word, but it sounds like it should be.)
You throw everything into your food processor- have you picked up a common theme to my recipes, yet? I did add a handful of chocolate chips and a scoop of coconut oil (it just so good, plus it helps keep everything together!) After you blend everything in the food processor, the directions say to throw the food processor mess into a plastic bag and smoosh it into a ball in the bag. I liked this tip because it made everything much less messy, plus my kids love smooshing and squeezing things, so they were happy to help! I was feeling a bit impatient today, so I opted to throw the smoothed ball onto some parchment paper and press flat to a thickness of about a half an inch. Then I stuck them in the fridge for about 15 minutes, took them out and cut them into bars.

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!

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!

These little babies are awesome when you have a crazy sweet tooth that you just can’t knock. They are the paleo version of a Mounds candy bar. Did I mention that they are ridiculously easy to make? You throw all the ingredients in your food processor, make them into balls, and that’s it!!! I have thrown these together in about 5 minutes on multiple occasions.
