Publisher Comments:

Now you can have your cake and be paleo, too! The Paleolithic diet and lifestyle—based on eating hunter/gatherer foods for optimal health—has surged in popularity, but with grains, dairy, and refined sugars off the menu, indulging isn’t easy.

Paleo Desserts is the first comprehensive cookbook of its kind: everyone’s favorite desserts now made Paleo friendly, lower carb, and gluten free. Providing 125 mouthwatering, easy-to-follow recipes from brownies to milkshakes, Jane Barthelemy serves up treats to satiate even the biggest caveman sweet tooth.

Recipes include Raspberry Crumble Bars, Tiramisu, Black Forest Cherry Pie, Lemon-Berry Parfait, Pumpkin Cheesecake, Whipped Coconut Crème, and more. Paleo Desserts includes a color-photo insert and ingredient lists for simplified shopping.

Synopsis:

The ultimate Paleo diet-friendly dessert cookbook—gluten-free, dairy-free, and naturally sweetened classics, from chocolate cake to key lime pie

Easy Ingredients, Gorgeous Color Photos!!
When I saw the luscious photo of Mexican Wedding Cookies, I simply had to make them. They were easy, especially following the video on her site. They tasted rich and delicate - even better than my mom's! Next I made the red velvet cupcakes - they were fabulous, and no red food coloring - just beets and chocolate. I put Crème Cheese Frosting on them, made with dairy-free coconut butter and lemon. It tasted exactly like cream cheese to me! With healthy desserts like this, I feel at home in my body again.

I have "suffered" from a sugar craving myself for years, and I am so relieved that I can have a treat now and again and feel good about it - just as my body does. Eating healthy takes time and effort, but what else is more important than what we put in our bodies? Once I picked up all the necessary ingredients, many of which were unfamiliar to me, I was ready to go. And now my cupboard is stocked and I am the more knowledgeable for it.

The ingredients are easy. Some of them weren't at my Whole Foods Market, so I clicked the links on Jane's website to buy them. (JanesHealthyKitchen.com) I was nearly overwhelmed by all the other original recipes there. The non-standard ingredients are the most important ones. That's what makes this Paleo desserts book special. They're low-carb and there's no sugar rush! I found Just Like Sugar Table Top chicory root sweetener in my Whole Foods Market, but all they had was a 4oz container. I asked them to stock the 1# green bag, so it's more economical.

Jane's recipes use pure shredded coconut flakes that are only 27% carbs, ground in a food processor. It has a delicious rich, clean flavor. I've been trying to bake Paleo for months, but when I use coconut flour the baked goods are heavy and flat-tasting. I didn't understand why. Then I found out coconut flour is 71% carbs, about the same as wheat flour. It is processed, de-fatted, and pulverized with the brown hull. No wonder it's a dark color and tasteless. This book has provided me with a real education in healthy eating. Thank you, Jane.

An amazing discovery in the book is the flaky pie crust that rolls out perfectly. We all know how challenging pie crusts can be . . . Great for Paleo Pumpkin Pie - another gorgeous photo! How did she invent so many original recipes? I've been eating mostly low-carb and organic for years. But these are the very first desserts that taste delicious and are healthy too. I wish the book had a spiral binding so I could open it and prop it upright on the counter. Too bad it's going to get really messy over the holidays, because I'm going to use it a lot!
