If you’ve seen any of my other sweet treat recipes, you know that my motivation is my wonderful husbands sweet tooth. He is a self-admitted sugar addict. But there is no reason for him to go cold turkey on sweet things, I just make sure to have healthy treats in the house for him. No processed sugars, preservatives or chemicals. That makes me feel like a good wife. These babies are dairy free, gluten free, vegan and paleo (if you omit the almonds). WARNING: These balls are highly addictive (don’t say you weren’t warned).
When I found this recipe, I could not wait to try them for myself. I made a couple of tweaks and tada ~ Easy Choco-Coconut No Bake Balls. They whip up really fast too. After combining everything on the stove, I put the mixture in the fridge for about 10 minutes so it firms up and easier to form into balls. These are one of my favorites when I’m craving chocolate.
These are so easy and dee-licious!!! I added a smidge of almond butter and some sliced almond at the end but it’s not necessary. If you are making a true paleo treat, just omit the almond butter and almonds. They are really just add-in’s after the fact and have no effect on the original recipe. So go nuts (or don’t).
After not eating the best on our recent vacation, I was really looking forward to getting back into our healthy clean eating habits again. It’s only been a couple days and thankfully my body is already starting to feel like itself again.
I love what kale does for my body so when I found this recipe at ifoodreal.com, I knew it had to be made STAT! I made my tweaks and chowed down. This is now my new favorite summer salad. Vegan, gluten free and absolutely paleo optional just by omitting the sliced almonds.
I used baby kale mixed with the mixed greens to cut the bitterness that kale can have at times. Massaging olive oil into the leaves and using sweet fruit completely wiped out any bitterness too. I added a small handful of shredded carrots just because I had some leftover in the fridge so if you have random veggies that you don’t want to go to waste, throw them in too.
Quick, creamy, healthy, paleo fudge. Just because I eat clean and healthy and poo-poo refined sugar, food coloring, chemicals, etc. doesn’t mean that I can’t have something sweet and delicious.
I posted a great chocolate paleo fudge a while ago that turned out amazing but sometimes I’m not in the mood for chocolate. This fudge reminds me of a creamy peanut butter banana. I prefer almond butter to peanut butter any day. While the tastes are similar, peanuts don’t have the nutrition that almonds do.
This recipe only has 5 ingredients which is another reason I love these. If you read most labels at the store, the list of ingredients is a mile long and most of them I can’t even pronounce. I don’t want that in my body and you don’t have to either.
I made this batch in less than 10 minutes and put them in the freezer overnight. This morning I had delicious creamy almond butter banana fudge. I used my silicone mold but you can use any baking pan that has sides. Just make sure to line it with parchment paper so you can get the fudge out easily.
Keep them in the freezer because the coconut oil and honey melt very easily and quickly but won’t freeze. No thawing required, soft and creamy right out of the freezer.
What immediately came to mind when I took my first bite was “you touch my banana and I will cut you”. I felt like a kid at a carnival eating this thing because it’s so gooey chocolaty decadent, no one has to know it’s paleo, vegan, gluten-free, dairy free or healthy.
I made a little tinfoil boat for my banana to sit in while in the oven so it didn’t tip over and spill all the friggin yumminess out all over the place.
If you have a sweet tooth and I know you do (don’t lie), you need this banana concoction in your life and more importantly, in your mouth. I cannot wait to get home from yoga tonight and devour one of these. I have 2 bananas left and if hubby plays his cards right, I might make him one because I’m certainly not going to share 🙂
My good friend Tracy, who is gluten sensitive, came over to visit me today and I told her she was going to help me test a new gluten-free cookie. She even took notes lol. I ended up having to include “DELICIOUSNESS” in the title of these because that’s all she could say when she tasted them.
I was initially skeptical about this recipe mainly because the 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking soda and only 2 tablespoons of coconut flour had me scratching my head. How the heck are these going to turn out cookie-ish? Let me tell you, this recipe is PERFECT!
6 ingredients and 15 minutes later and we had delicious paleo, gluten-free COOKIES!
They turned out so soft and chewy and had so much DELICIOUSNESS in them. We were so excited at how these turned out you would’ve thought we found big foot or something. These were SO good, not to mention easy! Hands down the best paleo, gluten-free cookie I’ve ever made.
I’ve made a couple of batches with both creamy almond butter and chunky almond butter and both came out great. The different brands actually had different consistencies. One was thicker and one was more runny but both turned out delicious.
