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!

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!
