Many of us have lived without added sugar since adopting the Paleo Diet, and our nostalgia for traditional sweets and treats weans when we recall the fake and sugary taste. But as the holiday season fast approaches, opt for these creamy Paleo treats that rely on coconut’s natural sweetness and healthy fat content. The addition of pomegranate seeds, a powerful antioxidant, and pecans lend extra texture for a little juicy pop and crunch.
2 cups coconut flakes
2 tsp cocoa powder
1 tsp cinnamon
½ cup pomegranate seeds
¼ cup chopped pecans (optional)
Add coconut flakes to food processor and process until smooth and liquid, scraping down the sides as needed (optional: sub 12 oz coconut butter). Stir or pulse cocoa powder and cinnamon into coconut butter until well incorporated. Line a flat pan or dish with parchment; or, for more portable treats, line a mini muffin tin with single use paper liners.
