What is your favorite naughty paleo treat...when what you really want is that snickers bar?
Something about the sweetness and texture of bananas really satisfies as it reminds me of all those sweet SAD carbs like cake and pancakes, so I tend go a bit bananas (groan) when making Paleo-friendly treats. My favourites include;
A frozen banana dipped in a little dark chocolate.
Bananas and cream or Greek yoghurt.
If you really want to push the boat out;
Banana flambé (ripe bananas sautéed with butter, dark rum, slivered almonds and a sprinkling of Demerara sugar) served with cream.
An unpeeled banana with a few squares of very dark chocolate inserted, wrapped in foil and baked until the chocolate is melted and the banana is just a pool of molten deliciousness.
ETA: I feel that I should give credit where due. The last one is a holdover from my Girl Guides days, and trust me, yes it does taste better when cooked in the embers of a campfire and eaten kneeling in the grass, steaming hot and straight out of the foil with a disposable spork.
Not sure if this is paleo (maybe more primal) but I love cutting up fruit and throwing it in some whipped up heavy cream. It helps me get through the rough times lol. Also paleo cookies... I don't even use honey to sweeten anymore- just loads of cut up fruit in a (almond/pecan/or coconut meal) cookie! lol
At all times I have about five half liter containers of natural vanilla ice cream in the freezer. It has milk, eggs, sugar, and vanilla. And I make it myself sometimes. I don't really think it's naughty unless you don't care for the sugar or it invades the overall quality of your diet... something I call "calorie displacement syndrome" where you're addicted to the stuff and your overall diet suffers as a result. Still you couldn't ask for more joy in such a small space.
I take an oskri organic fig bar and coat the top and bottom of it with fresh coconut flakes by pressing them into the bar under wax paper. I'm considering drizzling some melted Green & Black's Organic 85% Dark Chocolate over just to be really naughty.
I make these paleo (ish) brownies in mugs in my crockpot. THEY ARE AWESOME! I adapted the recipe from Baker Gal.
Baked sweet potato fries loaded with butter/coconut oil, cinnamon, and salt! Its not really a treat by most peoples standards but when you end up eating 4 sweet potatoes worth of fries then its hard to consider it healthy.
