Paleo Brambleversary Treats

We have a few Brambleberrians that are practicing a Paleo lifestyle. If you haven’t ever heard of Paleo, it’s a style of eating that involves only consuming things that (in theory) you can catch, pick, pluck or harvest without any processing that a caveman couldn’t have done. That means no sugars (fruit sugars and natural sweeteners like agave and honey are okay), grains, dairy or soy. It’s a super clean way of eating but a bit difficult to make  my typical sugary-sweet treats for. The strict letter of the law would say that you probably couldn’t have made coconut flour as a caveman…but Bramble Berry’s Paleos say that one of greatest things about the lifestyle is that it’s adaptable, and most important is the way your food makes you feel. If you’re gluten free or cutting down on refined sugars, this recipe is perfect for you!

Feels like Fall

Ingredients:

14 ounces organic pumpkin puree (1 can)

1/2 cup coconut flour

1/4 cup of sweetener of your choice (I used organic honey but agave works also)

3 Eggs

2 Tbsp Coconut Cream concentrate dissolved in 1/4 cup Water

2 Tbsp Ghee, melted

2 Tbsp Coconut Oil, melted

1 Tbsp Cinnamon

1 Tbsp Allspice

1 Tsp Ground Cloves

1 Tsp Baking powder

Ingredients

ONE: Preheat your oven to 350 Degrees F. Mix the coconut flour with baking powder and set aside.

Mixing Ingredients

TWO: In a separate bowl, combine all of your remaining ingredients and mix well. Add the coconut flour and baking powder and mix well.

Mixing Ingredients

THREE: Grease a 8×12 pan with coconut oil. Add the batter to your pan. Bake in 45 minutes or until the bars pass the toothpick test. Cool down and cut into squares or other shapes (maybe some circles?).

    Thank you for this. I’ve just given up dairy and I’ve never heard of the Paleo diet. This looks like a great recipe for me and I’m guessing many other Paleo recipes would work for me as well.

      I’d definitely check out other Paleo recipes if you are giving up dairy. We have a couple of gals in the office who are following the Paleo diet and have found it to be so healthy for them! =)

    I’ve tried this on yesterday and it came out delicious and spicy. Though, I served it with ice cream instead of whipped cream. My family was so grateful. : )
    Thank you for this cool recipe!

    Awesome looking recipe! Just a tip, paleo whipped cream is super easy to make! Just refrigerate a can of full fat coconut milk in refrigerator for 24hrs (or long enough for cream and water to separate.) This may be the same as the cream mentioned in recipe (pretty sure it is!) Freeze glass bowl and beaters in freezer for a few hours. Beat 1 cup (or more depending o how much you want to make) of the cream on high until whipped cream consistency. Slowly drizzle in honey, gave, or maple syrup- about 1/2 c, I never measure but add to taste. Whallah thats it – paleo whipped cream. I’ll have to try theses bars soon to go with it!
