My Grandma used to make the best peanut butter balls during the holidays, and I made them every year until now. My Nut Butter Balls have a blend of cashew butter and sun butter to get the taste of peanut butter, coconut flour to get the right texture and honey to sweeten. You can make them dairy-free by using refined coconut oil instead of clarified butter.
I have been baking apple pies on my husband’s birthdays and other special occasions throughout the year for almost 20 years. I got really good at making them, but then I went primal. It’s been almost two years, but I finally have an Apple Pie that my husband likes. I pair warm apples, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger with a tender, flaky, buttery pie crust for a grain and refined-sugar free dessert I think you’ll love. You can make this dairy-free by using palm shortening instead of clarified butter in the pie crust.
Pair my smooth, creamy, spiced pumpkin pie filling with my tender, flaky, buttery Pie Crust for a Pumpkin Pie no one will know is grain and refined sugar-free. You can make this dairy-free by using palm shortening instead of clarified butter in the pie crust.
My husband prefers pie for dessert, so I had my pre-primal pie crust dialed. It was tender, flaky and buttery. I never found a grain-free recipe that met all of these criteria, so I created my own Pie Crust that does. You can make this dairy-free by using palm shortening instead of the clarified butter. See my recipe notes for a nut-free version.
The other night I told my kids I would make them something for dessert after dinner. One requested vanilla and the other chocolate. I asked if a chocolate milkshake would work and they both said yes. Yes! I did a quick search for dairy-free and paleo milkshake recipes, but I couldn’t find anything that I thought they would like. I decided to create my own Chocolate Milkshake because my kids aren’t always big fans of adding bananas, avocados, sweet potatoes or pumpkin to their desserts. It is super simple to make and is lightly sweetened with honey. See the Recipe Notes for how I made my daughter’s a Mint Chip Chocolate Milkshake.
I’m not going to say my Chocolate Fudge is better than my Grandma’s, but it’s a decadent dessert that’s chocolatey, creamy and naturally sweetened. The walnuts are optional, but I love the crunch they add.
I wanted my Nut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls to taste like peanut butter, so I added a little Sunbutter, but feel free to leave it out and use 1/2 c of cashew butter or your nut butter of choice. These taste amazing by themselves or in Coconut Vanilla Ice Cream. You can make these dairy-free by using refined coconut oil instead of the clarified butter.
Who needs a bakery when you have my Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe? They are crispy on the outside, ooey gooey on the inside, have a hint of butter and they’re grain, nut & refined-sugar free. You can make these dairy-free by substituting the clarified butter with coconut oil. If you make these with my almond ap flour blend, you’ll want to increase the amount of flour to 1 1/4 c.
