Watermelon Soup

Rating: 4.61 stars
What could be better on a hot summer day than a cool soup made with fresh watermelon and mint?

Coconut Date Bars

Rating: 4.65 stars
The on-the-go, travel-light snack bar. Derived from a famous raw food bar and the ultimate in 'foodie!' This is a great snack for the active lifestyle and impressive to hand out to others. As an outdoor professional I take these in the back country and they need not be refrigerated and give great energy. Cut into bars and enjoy or wrap individually for on the go.

Kids will love these scrumptious low-carb keto cookies; all you need is peanut butter, vanilla extract, an egg, and some sugar substitute.

Pure Maple Candy

Rating: 4.38 stars
Pure, creamy, melt-in-your-mouth maple candy using only pure maple syrup! It's a treat almost like fudge. Add anything you want like chopped nuts. Use small maple leaf molds or other pretty shapes.

Whipped Banana "Ice Cream"

Rating: 4.46 stars
Frozen bananas, when whipped, have a nice refreshing ice cream-sorbet-type taste. It's a great way to satisfy your sweet tooth while also staying healthy.

Baked Bananas

Best Mug Cake (Paleo)

Paleo Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie
Rating: Unrated
I just love my cast iron pan for many of my recipes. We were invited to our friends for dinner, and since it was on my stove top, I decided to make a dessert! Plus it looks great to bring the pan with the dessert in it to a friends house. My pan is a 12-inch so I made a really big cookie. We just warmed it in the oven while we were eating, then topped it with ice cream and melted chocolate. Yum!

Easy Almond Thin Cookies

Rating: 4.08 stars

I was looking for a mildly sweet treat to have with tea that wasn't filled with butter or artificial ingredients in general. These are delicious! They happen to be paleo-friendly as well. The best things really are the simplest. I like coconut sugar because it's less sweet, but any sugar would work. These cookies freeze really well.
