Granola is a frequently used item in my house, and so are desserts. So, this recipe was created to be a base for desserts, snacks, and breakfasts throughout the week. You can easily fill these with yogurt, nut butter, ice cream, or use them as a fun topper to a yogurt bowl. My Paleo Granola Cups are Paleo friendly and gluten free!
My son Shane will have granola on top of his ice cream and yogurt all of the time. In fact, if you are going to offer him yogurt then you should check to make sure you have granola first. I will use this recipe or my Spiced Grain-Free Granola Recipe for the young man. My son Samuel will eat these plain. As you can tell my children are opposites. Sammy is slowly developing a sweet tooth as time goes on. Some mornings he will just ask for a cucumber, and while these granola cups are delicious I don’t know how well they would pair with chopped vegetables, you know what I mean?
These are super simple to make and take about 20 minutes from beginning to end. Of course, there is a food processor involved, because it makes for a super easy recipe. The tricky part will be pressing the dough into the muffin tins. Don’t worry I have tested this recipe out a few times, so here is my tip: use your fingers to press the dough in and up along the edges of the muffin liner. If you can do that, then this is going to be easy breezy for you.
These will need to cool completely before you remove the muffin liners. I simply remove the cups from the muffin tin, and then place them into the fridge for about 10 minutes until completely cooled. Then you gently peel away the liner. I store my granola cups in my refrigerator in an air tight container for up to 5 days. You can also freeze these too. Simply, take them out to thaw for about 5-10 minutes before serving, and stuff them with ice cream as a dessert. The options are limitless! I hope you enjoy these!
If you are needing a light, but satisfying dessert for that sweet tooth of yours then look no further. My creamy Chocolate Avocado Pudding with Coconut Cream will have you licking your spoon for more. This easy to make recipe is gluten free, dairy free, and paleo friendly.
I love a no bake dessert recipe. I also love a dessert that is guilt free. This recipe is paleo friendly with minimal ingredients, and likely with things you have already in your pantry. This is a great way to also use avocados that need to be eaten.
I am a chocolate lover for sure. When I am not blending chocolate with peanut butter I am typically having a fruit dessert. Chocolate with berries is a fabulous combination. Avocados are a great source of healthy fat and fiber. The creaminess from the avocados makes this pudding buttery smooth.
This is a no bake recipe, and it takes no more than 10-15 minutes to make. I will put this together quickly before I make dinner on nights when my husband I are dinning in. Having a sweet treat after a relaxing dinner is a perfect ending to nights when we are able to reconnect once the kids go to sleep. Sometimes I forget what it is like to enjoy a meal from beginning to end without having to pick up legos, do the bedtime routine, and pack school lunches. It’s the little things in life, right? I hope you enjoy this as much as we do!
What says Spring more than a citrus Lemon Bar recipe? For this recipe I turned the classic lemon bar into muffins for a refreshing, bite sized dessert. This dessert is paleo friendly, gluten and diary free.
I am a huge fan of lemon anything. When I entertain in the Spring and Summer months I will usually make these lovely bites. Sometime I will make them and pop them into the freezer, so I have them on hand for when my husband and I are craving a sweet treat during the week. I will sometimes serve them with vanilla ice cream for him, because he tolerates dairy better than I do. You can also serve fresh berries on the side to compliment the lemon flavor as well. Or, if you are feeling crazy do the muffins with ice cream and berries. You can’t go wrong either way.
This recipe is pretty easy to make as well, so the labor required is very minimal. The hardest part is waiting for them to completely cool before you remove them from the muffin liners. For storage, put them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days, or put them in the freezer for up to 3 months. I suggest using parchment paper to separate the muffins so they do not stick together as they are freezing.
