great paleo holiday treats

With the holidays just around the corner, I thought it would be most appropriate to gather some of the top desserts I’ve made over the year that are excellent paleo choices for the holidays. It’s easy to to stay paleo when you’ve got such delicious treats to choose from. It’s tried and true- paleo or not, these will be a hit.

And, while I’ll certainly be whipping up a few batches of these cookies, squares, and muffins I’ve got some great new treats up my sleeve and cannot wait to share them with you.

My Top Paleo Holiday Choices

cinnamuffin

Coconut Cinnamon Bun Muffins: a great bite¬† sized alternative to gluten laden cinnamon buns. These might be smaller in size, but they certainly don’t lack any flavour!

gingerbread

Paleo Gingerbread Cookies: what’s the holiday season without some gingerbread. I fell madly in love with these men, and I hope you do to.

paleochocolatechip

Chocolate Chip Cookies: a tried and true classic. No dessert tray is ever complete with out a row or two of chocolate chip cookies. Following the paleo lifestyle is no reason not to enjoy!

cookedbrownies

Paleo Fudgy Brownies: the title says it all. Warm, gooey and fudgy muffins. Free of sugar and gluten. What more could you ask for!

cheesecake3

Paleo “Cheese”Cake: recreate this fabulous “cheese” cake for that dinner party or potluck. Even better, make it in a baking dish and serve “cheese”cake squares! The possibilities are endless.

Do you have those “must have” holiday favourites?

triple c pancakes

Step right up folks, we’ve got the perfect combination of coconut, cinnamon & cocoa here.

Sometimes I just get that hankering from some pancakes. By no means am I a pancake addict, however, I am a breakfast for dinner kind of gal. And so, I think my hankering stems from the fact that anything breakfast-like tastes 1,000,000 times better when you eat it after 4pm. I’m strange… I know!

Haha, nevertheless. Welcome to Heaven!
