4 Delicious Paleo Desserts for Spring

The modern American diet is chock full of processed food, including far too much sugar and high fructose corn syrup. These sweeteners can be incredibly difficult to escape, and they only serve to increase your cravings, making you prone to weight gain, low energy, and numerous other adverse effects. Fortunately, if you have a sweet tooth and you are committed to the paleo diet, it is possible to indulge without feeling guilty. As warm weather approaches, treat yourself to these tasty paleo desserts:

Strawberry Rhubarb Paleo Crisp

Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp

There's no better sign of spring than a nice crop of rhubarb. Technically a vegetable, this delightfully tangy ingredient has been used in pies and bars for generations.

Ingredients

  • 6 rhubarb stems
  • 2 cups sliced strawberries
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Lemon zest

Topping:

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 4 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup honey

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Add lemon and cinnamon to the sliced strawberries and rhubarb. Spoon into a small baking dish. Mix the topping ingredients in a bowl until they resemble a crumble. Place this crumble over the strawberries and rhubarb. Cook for twelve to fifteen minutes.

 

Chocolate Chip Cookies

This paleo-friendly dessert tastes almost the same as grandma's classic -- and it's twice as healthy!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Melt and cool the coconut oil and combine with honey, vanilla extract, and egg. Mix in almond flour and baking soda to form a dough. Use a tablespoon to drop dough onto an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for at least ten minutes, or until the edges of the cookies are golden brown. 

Paleo Key Lime Pie

Key Lime Pie

Tart, tangy, and delicious, a good key lime pie can impress party guests in a hurry. Make this for your next big potluck or enjoy a slice guilt-free at home after dinner.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 4 eggs
  • Dash of sea salt
  • 1/2 cup lime juice
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 2 teaspoons lime zest
  • 4 tablespoons honey

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Pulse almond flour and salt in a food processor and then add coconut oil and egg and continue pulsing. The dough should form a ball before it is pressed into a standard pie dish. Bake the crust for 5 minutes and, while doing so, whisk lime juice, zest, coconut milk, and honey. Pour the lime filling mix into the pie crust and bake for 25 minutes or until set.

Fruit Salad Paleo Desserts

Fruit Salad

A good fruit salad can be just as satisfying as cookies or a pie -- and it's far easier to prepare. Make this paleo fruit salad when you're in a hurry and need something sweet, stat!

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinaigrette
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 cup sliced strawberries 
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1/2 cup blackberries
  • 1/2 grapes
  • 1/2 cup kiwi
