Our Stone Age ancestors did not have the sweet temptations that we have today. There were no ice creams, pies, cookies, chocolate and cakes beckoning to be eaten. It’s difficult to go without craving sugar sweets nowadays. However, the good news is that you simply can use Paleo-approved ingredients to make your favorite desserts, doing away with refined sugar.

Try these Paleo-approved desserts:

The cake layer is standard, and this is the one thing which will end up at the bottom, and supports the fruity goodness at the top.

Paleo Cake Pops

The little cake pops resemble ones you might have seen sold in coffee shops or bake shops. The difference is that they contain nothing that might be unhealthy to Paleo eaters. Coconut milk, dark chocolate and almond flour, are the major ingredients. You can put chocolate glaze on them. You can also be creative with a vanilla glaze, or a mixture of both.

Apple Spice Cookies

These are deliciously fruity and healthy! They look like a cookie, but taste more as an apple. They contain the correct mix of spices and seasonings, as well as freshly cooked apples. They are chewy and satisfying.

Choco-nut banana mash

If you don’t feel like baking, you make a quick banana mash that is satisfying and healthy. Take a peeled banana and mash it in a bowl. Add a few tablespoons of almond butter, and top with a handful of dark chocolate chips. It couldn’t be easier to satisfy that Paleo sweet tooth!
