Paleo Chocolate Soufflés

Dessert, Recipes | June 12, 2017 | By

What’s better than an ooey gooey chocolate soufflé with a warm dark chocolaty center? An ooey gooey chocolate soufflé with a warm dark chocolaty center that’s paleo! Chocolate soufflés used to be one of my favorite guilty indulgences with a capital “G”…now I can enjoy these sinful treats without feeling the need to repent. You can cut the recipe down to 1 if you don’t have the self-control…or make the batter up to 1 day ahead (store in the refrigerator) if you’re wanting to make batch after batch! Serve these hot and piping out of the oven and try them with a dollop of my paleo whipped cream!

Chocolate Glazed Paleo Donuts

Breakfast, Dessert | January 8, 2017 | By

These are hands down my favorite donuts in the entire world. Unlike the sugar headaches I inevitably get from “regular” donuts, I can devour these suckers guiltlessly with the only consequence being a big ol’ protein boost. If you don’t already have a donut pan, it is definitely worth the investment for a future filled with these fluffy chocolate-y treats. The trick to making these donuts is to be patient to make sure they cool at each step before glazing and after glazing – pop them in the fridge to speed the process up! Enjoy these donuts for breakfast, with a cup of steaming coffee or for a mid-afternoon snack!

Panda Magic 7 Layer Paleo Bars

Need a post Memorial Day pick me up? These paleo magic 7 layer bars will soothe your post-holiday blues and are sure to satisfy ANY craving! As a little panda, magic bars were ALWAYS my weakness…the crunch of the buttery graham cracker crust, the decadent layers of sweetened nuts sandwiched in between melted chocolate and sprinkles of chocolate chips…all topped with a chewy golden shredded coconut topping…complete with the fat and calorie bomb sitting at the bottom of my stomach afterwards.

I strove to make a paleo, gluten-free and grain-free version of these magical 7 layer bars and while they are not the lowest in calorie count (eat one, not the whole batch), they’ll satisfy your cravings with cleaner ingredients than the original but with all the taste and bliss!

Paleo Yellow Cake with Chocolate and Vanilla Frosting

Dessert, Recipes | January 23, 2015 | By

My boyfriend’s favorite birthday cake is yellow cake with chocolate frosting. Straight up. I decided I should try and find a paleo friendly way for him to still enjoy his classic treat and this one literally takes the cake. Simply pour batter into a lined-muffin pan to make cupcakes instead of a cake! For those non-chocolate lovers out there (why?!), there’s a scrumptious vanilla frosting recipe option for you…or even better, use both! Be sure to sprinkle any additional dark chocolate chips you have left on top of your cake!

Heaven’s Best Paleo Sea Salt and Dark Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Dessert, Recipes | January 11, 2015 | By

I can honestly say that these are the best cookies I’ve ever experienced in my entire life (and yes, I know that’s a bold statement). I actually prefer these cookies to non-paleo cookies because the almond flour provides a denser texture and the honey ensures the perfect sweetness. The challenge is not eating the entire batch in one sitting!
