What Kind of Dessert Can You Eat on the Paleo Diet?
Paleo desserts are dessert recipes that fit into the paleo diet based on the ingredients in them. That means paleo desserts are gluten free, dairy free, legume free and refined sugar free. That may seem like a lot of "free" things, but I promise these recipes are not free of flavor. Here's a quick rundown:
- Refined-sugar free
Paleo Baking Staples
You may think complicated when you hear paleo baking, but all of these ingredients are simple and easy to find!
- Almond flour
- Coconut flour
- Tapioca/Arrowroot Starch
- Coconut milk
- Almond milk
- Maple syrup or honey
- Coconut sugar
- Almond butter
- Refined coconut oil

Can I have Chocolate on the Paleo Diet?
Lucky for those following the paleo diet, cocoa is paleo. However, not all chocolate and chocolate bars are. They usually have some sort of milk in them. Because of that, the recipes on this list either use dairy free chocolate or plain old cocoa powder.
