Enjoy this Surprising Uplifting Guilt Free Paleo Dessert

How to Make this Fearless Juicy Guilt Free Paleo Dessert!

In the mood for a Paleo Dessert? After trying out many different sweet ‘healthy’ options, I realized that I tend to favor this type (don’t worry, there’s no meat or fish involved) to end a meal.

But, why? There are some components of the paleo philosophy that I feel are important for optimal health. One is that the diet is grain- free. Since grains contain gluten, that is not easily digested by more and more people these days, I prefer simply to remove it from my diet, thereby eliminating my chances of becoming gluten intolerant.

Why I love making Paleo desserts…

Another reason I favor this type of dessert? I consistently use eggs and sometimes whey protein, which increases protein density. Enjoying a healthy dessert is great, but being able to experience one high in one of our most essential nutrients is even better. For me, the guilt factor vanishes once I consider that I’m raising my level of something so many people aren’t getting enough of in their diet. For this exact reason, I decided to combine pleasure with work by making what I like to call my Juicy Paleo Cake. Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 Cups Almond Meal
  • 2 Scoops Whey Protein Powder
  • 3/4 Cup Raw Organic Honey
  • 1/4 Cup Raw Cocoa Nibs
  • 3/4 Cup Walnut Pieces or Pecan pieces
  • 1tbsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Small Bananas or 1 Big
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1/2 tbsp Baking Soda
  • 1/4 Cup Organic Coconut Milk
  • 1/4 Cup Coconut Oil

Directions:

First, place the Cocoa Nibs and Walnuts Aside.

  1. In a blender or food processor, mix all ingredients together until an even creamy-liquid-y like consistency is achieved.
  2. Pre-heat oven to 370 F
  3. In a pan, lined with parchment paper pour in the mixture
  4. Add the cocoa nibs and walnut pieces. Gently mix with a spoon to spread them evenly throughout the cake.
  5. Bake for 34-40min or until a golden-brownish crust forms
  6. You may serve warm and sprinkle with some cocoa powder and add a drop of Maple syrup (optional)
  7. Enjoy this sweet treat without feeling guilty.
