I’m a fan of simple recipes where each ingredient can be tasted individually, that’s why the paleo dessert recipes I enjoy are really simple.
Since the sheer nature of desserts is that of being unhealthy, these recipes might blur the lines as to what is paleo acceptable. For example:

Warm Milk With Maple Syrup
I don’t think that the idea of milk consumption is that outlandish, especially when considering that our ancestors must have discovered that it was edible.
Simply add some maple syrup to a glass of freshly heated milk, the flavor is absolutely amazing, one of my favorite tastes in the whole world. You really need to use fresh, proper maple syrup for it to work correctly, that fake syrup you buy has a weird taste that is no where near the flavor of proper maple syrup. The beauty here is that it’s a really simple recipe, that requires two ingredients. Great stuff!
Rooibos Tea With Honey
You may be wondering why I’m listing recipes which are simple. Well, as said before, I love simple things. You also may be asking yourself what rooibos tea is? Well, it’s an originally South African tea brewed from the rooibos or red bush plant. It has an amazing aroma and is very easy to brew.
Basically all you do is brew a cup of rooibos tea (generally you’ll need to let the bag steep for around 5-8 minutes), then you add some honey. The flavor is too delicious, and makes for a great way of curbing any sort of sugar craving you might be harboring. This is one of my favorites!
Paleo Chocolate Cake Ramakins
- About a cup of dark chocolate, the darker the better.
- Vanilla extract: Half a teaspoon.
- Eggs: Two.
- Salt: Just a pinch.
- Coconut flour: Two teaspoons.
- Honey, or if you are being naughty, sugar: About two tablespoons worth.
- Virgin coconut oil: Around four tablespoons, you’ll also need to use some to grease the ramekins.
How to make:
- Preheat the oven to around 375 degrees fahrenheit.
- Heat the chocolate and the coconut oil in the microwave and stir until smooth. Let it cool off properly to one side.
- Beat the eggs in another bowl and add vanilla, salt and sugar/honey. Mix everything until its all frothy.
- Once you’ve got a good mixture, pour it over the chocolate. Sift the coconout flower over the top of everything.
- Mix everything together. Make sure it’s properly mixed!
- Pour the mixture into the ramekins, but ensure they aren’t totally filled because the mixture will rise!
- Bake for around 10 minutes or until the mixture is cooked all the way through.
- Once they are cooked, remove from the oven and enjoy immediately!
