Are you anything like me when that sweet craving hits you’re instantly searching for a recipe that is quick and easy? No need to reach for something unhealthy and processed when you can make any of these paleo sweets desserts in 30 minutes or less! Even as a paleo baker, you might think I have desserts around all the time but I promise you that is very unlikely. Hence why I developed these three single serving desserts so I don’t feel guilty wasting any.
I love making a single-serving dessert when I am cooking for one or even just for two. You’ll most likely be surprised that you won’t even need to head to the grocery store because most of the likely will likely be in your pantry.
I’ve included my top three favorite Paleo Sweets recipes below that make for an incredible dessert, breakfast or quick snack on the go! All paleo-friendly, vegan and grain-free! Do you have a go-to single serving dessert recipe? I would love to know!
Single Lady Raw Cheesecake
½ cup cashews, soaked overnight OR soaked 30 minutes in boiling water
3 tbsp melted coconut oil
2 tbsp raw honey
1 tbsp lemon juice
½ tsp vanilla
⅛ tsp salt
⅓ cup chopped fresh strawberries, optional
Combine all ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides occasionally.
Pour the cheesecake filling into 1 extra large or 2-3 regular silicone muffin tins (or regular muffin tins lined with a paper liner or parchment paper).
Freeze 2-3 hours until set.
Allow the cheesecakes to sit out and soften 5-10 minutes before eating. Enjoy!
Mocha Chia Seed Pudding
1 ½ tbsp chia seeds
½ cup almond milk
¼ cup cold coffee (or replace with more almond milk)
1 ½ Tbsp cacao powder
1-2 tbsp maple syrup, to taste
½ tsp vanilla
¼ tsp salt
Combine all ingredients in a small jar – replace the lid and shake vigorously to combine.
Allow the pudding to set 1-2 hours in the fridge OR blend until smooth (this can also be made the evening before and left in the fridge overnight).
Chill until ready to eat – Enjoy!
Caramelized Split Banana
2 tbsp coconut oil
3 Tbsp nut butter (I love @eatnuttzo peanut-free blend)
1 tbsp Cacao nibs
2 tbsp chopped pecans or other nuts
¼ tsp cinnamon
1 Tbsp maple syrup
Coconut yogurt, optional
Slice the banana in half from end to end
Fry banana in coconut oil over medium-low heat until golden – about 5 minutes.
Transfer the softened banana to a plate – drizzle with nut butter and maple syrup and sprinkle with remaining toppings
