It’s no shock that I have a sweet tooth. If you look through the bulk of the recipes that I’ve shared on my website, you will see that desserts play a heavy rotation. I know that when I first decided to jump into the Paleo diet, I was scared as a kitten that I woudn’t be able to enjoy desserts again and how I wish I had had a copy of my friend Adriana Harlan’s book Paleo Desserts for Dummies.
Adriana blogs over at Living Healthy with Chocolate and she seriously knows her stuff. This coobook is a gem for those of us blessed with the desire to live healthy with the occasional treat. Inside not only will you find 125 gluten-free and refined-sugar-free desserts but you will learn how to use whole food ingredients to re-recreate the tastes you know and love from your childhood.
Adriana gave me the choice of sharing whatever recipe I would like from her book and it was crazy hard to pick. I’m dead serious. It took me an hour of vacillating betweenher recipes for no-bake double chocolate cookie dough bites, flourless chocolate chip cookies, thick and creamy mint chocolate “milkshake”, chocolate chip scones, and the list goes on and on. These paleo honey graham crackers won because we are going to the coast this weekend and what’s a ocean side campfire without smores!
This recipe brought be back to my childhood and I was blown away by how much it reminded me of classic graham crackers. Don’t wait, get your copy today! I can’t recommend it enough.
