Paleo Sweet Potato Bread

Paleo sweet potato bread is my favourite grain free dessert as of late. It’s got just the right amount of sweetness from the raw honey, has a soft, cakey, satisfying texture, and is mildly spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla and orange zest. This recipe is perfect if you’re accommodating multiple dietary restrictions, as it’s gluten free, dairy free, refined sugar free, grain free and paleo diet friendly.

Paleo Banana Bread

Paleo banana bread is the perfect grain free breakfast for banana lovers! This one turned out sweet, moist and cakey with a slightly dense texture that is perfectly satisfying when you’re craving a treat. It’s gluten free, dairy free, refined sugar free, and grain free so this paleo banana bread is perfect for feeding a crowd with various dietary restrictions.

Paleo Blueberry Muffins

Paleo blueberry muffins make a delicious and healthy on-the-go breakfast or snack. They’re sweetened only with date paste so they’re a good option if you’re trying to reduce your consumption of refined sugar. To keep these paleo blueberry muffins grain free, I opted to use coconut flour which gives these muffins a subtle coconut flavour which pairs nicely with the blueberries and vanilla in this recipe.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Fudge

This dairy free peanut butter chocolate fudge is much more nutritious than traditional fudge, yet it definitely isn’t lacking in sweet chocolaty peanut buttery flavour. This fudge is full of healthy fats from the extra virgin olive oil and natural peanut butter, but feel free to substitute your preferred oil or nut butter.

Grapefruit Cake

Grapefruit is such a refreshing flavour and is definitely underused in baking, in my opinion! This moist and delicious grapefruit cake is bursting with sweet, bright, and tangy grapefruit flavour. It tastes like such a treat, yet it’s refined sugar free, gluten free, and dairy free, so you can go ahead and indulge in a slice for breakfast or as a healthy snack.
