Layered Peppermint Patties Recipe [Paleo, Keto]

Louise Hendon | May 18

These Paleo and Keto peppermint patties are perfect for parties or for storing in your fridge as mini treats. Even though they were barely sweetened, they taste fantastic, and the black and white layers really stand out and make them look cute and delicious.

Next time you’re going to a party and want to bring some desserts to impress the guests with, try taking these gorgeous layered peppermint patties – you’ll feel like a skilled chef rather than a home cook with these!

If you don’t like using stevia, then just add in a 1-2 tablespoons of raw honey instead. Of course, if you’re sticking to a ketogenic diet then you’ll need to take those extra grams of carbs into account.

Almond Butter Fudge Recipe [Paleo, Keto, Sugar-Free, Dairy-Free]

Louise Hendon | May 12

If you’re diabetic or on a ketogenic diet, then it can be tough to find desserts to eat. That’s where this delicious almond butter fudge recipe comes in. It’s not only Paleo, but also Ketogenic (low carb and diabetic-friendly).

This fudge is sweetened with stevia, but you can omit sweeteners if you want or use other sweeteners of your choice. We think stevia is generally the best sugar-free option, but check that your stevia is pure and doesn’t contain other ingredients. If you’re not trying to stay sugar-free, then coconut sugar or maple syrup are good options for sweetening this fudge recipe.

60 Ketogenic Dessert Recipes [Low-Carb, Paleo, Dairy-Free]

Louise Hendon | May 9

You’re excited by the ketogenic diet, but you just can’t survive with some desserts? Don’t worry – we’re here to help! Check out this giant list of delicious ketogenic dessert recipes we’ve compiled.

We’ve got everything from ketogenic cookies to mint chocolate chip ice cream!

Just a quick note before you jump into these delicious dessert recipes…

  1. Many of the keto recipes use some form of non-caloric sweetener to make these desserts sweet. While we think it’s better to avoid all sweeteners on a ketogenic diet, it’s clearly not possible when it comes to creating desserts. We try to stick to pure stevia as our preferred non-caloric sweetener.
  2. None of these recipes contain dairy other butter or ghee. If you tolerate dairy ok, then feel free to use butter, but if you don’t tolerate dairy, then try to use cultured ghee instead as this removes most of the lactose and casein from butter (and so it’s not as problematic for most people).

Paleo Banana Nut Muffins Recipe [Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free]

Louise Hendon | March 28

“Everybody loves banana nut muffins.”

LOL – that’s what Jeremy said when I asked him what he liked about them. So, with that, how could you fail to enjoy this healthier version that’s made with delicious spices and sweetened with a tad of raw honey as well as the bananas.

Enjoy these Paleo banana nut muffins warm for a soft muffin texture with a nutty crunch. Personally, I like them with a cup of black tea for an afternoon snack.

Sugar-Free Chocolate Biscotti Recipe [Paleo, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free]

Louise Hendon | March 17

This is another recipe that my dad especially enjoys. It’s lightly sweetened with stevia and has a great flavor to it with the unsweetened cacao powder and unsweetened shredded coconut. When it first comes out of the oven, it’s pretty soft still, but you can let it dry out for longer by leaving it in the oven at a very low temperature or just by sitting it out. Or don’t bother waiting and just enjoy immediately.

There’s also some chia seeds in this recipe to help everything gel together better.

One of the hardest things about going Paleo for most people is giving up desserts, but with this list of Paleo dessert recipes that we’ve compiled, it should hopefully be a bit less painful.

However, we do want to caution you that eating too many Paleo desserts isn’t good for you no matter what – it can make it harder for you to get rid of your sugar cravings and they can often be easy to overeat. However, if you’re looking for something to help the transition to Paleo or if you really need a treat one day, then please enjoy these Paleo dessert recipes!

Persimmon Dessert Cups Stuffed with Butternut Squash [Paleo, AIP, GF]

Louise Hendon | March 4

The Forgotten Fruit

Persimmons are one of those fruits that always fascinate people and yet scare them at the same time. Persimmons are pretty but “unknown” and therefore “unapproachable.” I’m going to change that!

I was lucky enough to have been introduced to the wonders of the persimmon fruit at an early age, but for most of my life, I was confused by when it was ripe, why they came in different shapes, and how best to eat them.

Then, a couple months ago, I was in my mother’s kitchen, which was full of all the fresh produce that she’d grown in her garden this year. And among all that fresh produce were more than a few persimmons.

I decided, despite my uncertainty, that I just had to do something awesome with the baskets of fruit sitting in the kitchen, including all those persimmons! I stared at them for a while, Googled to see what other people had done, and then created this recipe, which turned out to be way more delicious and much easier than I anticipated.

fuyu persimmon

Hachi-WHAT???

Most of the confusion and fear about persimmons stems (no pun intended) from the fact there are 2 main types of persimmons: fuyu and hachiya. Actually, there are many more varieties, but those are the two types you’ll find in your grocery store.

And because nature really likes to play tricks on us, fuyu and hachiya persimmons look fairly similar (to the uninitiated like me), but they are actually very different in texture and in determining ripeness.

Vanilla Pound Cake Recipe [Paleo, Gluten-Free]

Louise Hendon | February 29

This pound cake never ceases to WOW. It’s just so much like real pound cake.

The secret ingredient is a tiny amount of whey protein powder, which is just one of the proteins purified from milk. Most concerns with whey protein powder stem from the fact that many brands are packed with artificial sweeteners, colors, and flavors, so I suggest buying a pure one like this one from Amazon.

Egg Custard Tarts Recipe [Paleo, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free]

Louise Hendon | February 10

I was shocked many years ago when I visited China and found that KFC was famous there for their egg tarts! (I have to admit that I tried them, and they were really really good.) So, here’s my Paleo version of the egg custard tart with an almond crust and coconut egg custard. The almond crust makes it a bit crumbly and this version is not as sweet as the traditional ones.
