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.

Desserts for a Healthy and Modern Lifestyle
Paleo Desserts look and taste like the real thing - those favorite sweets we grew up with and long for at every dinner party, birthday, and celebration
. Cupcakes, apple pie, blueberry muffins, and carrot cake - reincarnated with zero sugar, wheat or dairy. They taste even better! And, to my delight, they are healthy for those of us on special diets. That includes the 25 million Americans with diabetes, the 3 million with celiac, 7.5 million vegans, and all of us who choose to be dairy free, gluten free or sugar free!
This is a cookbook that transcends the basics. Jane guides the reader to the source of her ingredients, the tools we need, how to deal with sugar cravings, how to avoid the ingredients that make us sick. All the recipes are original, invented by Jane - from carrot mini-cupcakes, to paleo apple pie, and tiramusu. There is information on how to adapt and serve, too. Jane Barthelemy is a trailblazer, creating, experimenting, and perfecting dessert recipes to complement our healthy lives. We're so lucky to have pioneers like this author, finding new ways to be indulgent and healthy, too.

The absolute beauty of the book is in the author's complete dedication to making each ingredient and recipe easy to follow. The key word for this book is "follow". Follow the author's directions implicitly on ingredients and processes. You will LOVE the SWEET results of flavor and healthy feeling and no sugar rush! My belief is these recipes are a breakthrough in pastries for health. And her new "secret" on low-carb, natural flour and sweetener sugar will be just a "sweet delicious" surprise for you.
There isn't anything like this book in the healthy food world, and I have been eating "clean" food since 1972. However, I could never eat SWEETS, as the sugar made me sick to my stomach, so I gave it up. Jane's delicious recipes and healthy ingredients have changed my life. I GET TO EAT SWEETS again!. And, if you follow her book recipes exactly, you will LOVE THE RESULTS. The ingredients are easy to find in the Resources in the back of the book - and even easier to order with quick links on her website, JanesHealthyKitchen.com.
Chocolate Haystacks are one of my favorite as they are SO FAST, and I feel so satisfied and healthy when I pop them in my mouth. My husband didn't notice they were different, he just gobbled them down. I can't eat just one, that is for sure. I do wish they had put some colored pictures throughout the recipe pages. A picture is worth a thousand words to me when I am trying to learn something new. Anyway, I thank Jane for this SWEET gift to all of us, Kathleen
