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.

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.

Chocolate Brownies Recipe [Paleo, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free]

Louise Hendon | December 15

Getting these to be perfectly moist and yet flavorful was not easy, especially since I wanted to reduce the sugar in them and add in some stevia (you can, of course, put in more honey instead of the stevia). It took me a while to perfect these brownies, but it was worth it (Jeremy loves chocolate brownies)!

The jury is still out on whether stevia is good or not (check out this article if you’re interested in finding out more about stevia).
