25 Decadent Paleo Desserts You Don’t Have to Be Paleo to Love
Mmm, homemade Twix bars
Quick lesson: Paleo, for the uninitiated, is a diet that consists solely of foods that would’ve been available to cavemen. (Think fruits, veggies, nuts, eggs and meat.) But that doesn’t mean you can’t also splurge a little. Here are 25 absurdly delicious paleo dessert recipes that we think cavemen would’ve loved.
Mini Cinnamon Pecan Pies
So cute, so delicious.
Pomegranate Coconut Chocolate Bark
Keep a few pieces in the freezer for a rainy day.
Homemade Almond Joy Bars
So much better than store-bought.
Cranberry Chocolate Chip Cookies
Cooked to chewy perfection.
Cranberry Hand Pies
So cute, so delicious, part deux.
Pecan Sticky Date Cake
The coffee on the side looks pretty darn great, too.
French Silk Brownies
Frosted brownies are the best brownies.
A more than suitable alternative to a cookie.
Dark Chocolate Mousse
Little cups of goodness.
Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies
Remind us why we ever eat chocolate-chip cookies that don’t have bacon?
Peanut Butter Brownie Cookies
Mmm, peanut-butter chips are the stuff of dreams.
They’re super thin, so you can totally have two. (Or seven.)
Chocolate Chip Banana Bread
Eat a slice for dessert, and then another for breakfast.
Basically summer in a dish.
The best part is, you control the PB-to-chocolate ratio.
Almond Butter Cookie Bars
Break us off a piece of that.
Blueberry Lemon Bread
Don’t skimp on the lemon drizzle.
Homemade Twix Bars
Yes. Just yes.
No Bake Key Lime “Cheesecake”
No oven? No problem.
Cookie Dough Fudge
Two of our favorite things in one? Yes, please.
Just the right amount of zest.
Blueberry Coconut Souffle Bake
To be served with a healthy dollop of (paleo, dairy-free) ice cream.
