I love paleo desserts. There, I said it.

70 Paleo Dessert Recipes

When people think paleo, they tend to think limiting. I find the opposite to be true. The process of elimination can actually open the door for creativity, which is what I have found to be true in paleo cooking and baking. For this reason, removing the wheat, grains, processed sugars, and dairy from desserts results in bombastic treats that taste amazing and keep your system clean. I’ve had my fair share of paleo fails, but there are tons of resources for primal cooking and baking available on the internet (and on the shelves!), so no one needs to go reinvent the wheel (pun intented).

Without further adieu, from cakes and breads, to truffles and ice cream, dig deep into the healthy land of paleo treats! Here are 70 paleo dessert recipes!

    I really should not have read this right before going to bed…now I want all the dessert!!!! But like for real. You kind of owe me dessert for taunting me with this post. Good thing I have 1 leftover crinkle in the freezer! Next time though 😉 Thanks for including me, love!

    I may not be paleo, but I definitely understand having eating restrictions! And I totally agree that it makes you more creative in the kitchen. Can’t wait to try some of these!
