These Paleo Decadent Chocolate Pecan Cookies only TASTE decadent.  In fact they are rather light in texture. They are gluten-free, processed sugar-free, dairy free and have no artificial ingredients.  Don’t be fooled by the lack of white sugar, butter and wheat flour! Chewy and fudgy, my Paleo Decadent Chocolate Pecan Cookies are sweetened with coconut sugar, use almond flour as a binder, have 2 kinds of chocolate,  ghee instead of butter, a couple eggs and pecan pieces to make these the best rich chocolate cookies anywhere!

After making my Paleo Raspberry Jam the other day, I decided to use a little of it to make Paleo Thumbprint Cookies.  This was a great success.  The base of the cookie dough is made with mixed nut butter from Trader Joe’s. I found the consistency of it a little loose but the flavor is great!!  It was perfect for these cookies.

Simple, slightly sweet, a little salty with a roasted cashew crunch!  That’s what you get when you make these Dark Chocolate Covered Cashews With Sea Salt.

This would be a lovely treat to make for Mom on Mother’s Day!!  Place them in a pretty box found at craft stores with a nice hand written note!

They take only 10 minutes to toast , plus a little time to cool.  Then it takes just a couple minutes to dunk them in melted 72% cacao chocolate, a quick sprinkle of fine flaked sea salt and about 15 minutes in the fridge until they are ready to serve!  That is it!  If you are like me, you will have all these ingredients on hand……inventory always includes a variety of nuts, stored in the freezer, dark chocolate bars, a variety of salts and parchment paper!  Trader Joe’s has the best prices on nuts in my opinion.

I am SERIOUS!  Paleo Instant Pot Lava Cakes was a last minute  dessert for last minute company last night…and was a huge success!  I was the only “clean” eater in the group but EVERYONE raved about this gooey, fudge-y, dark chocolate dessert!  It was so fast, having all the ingredients in stock and literally cooked in 17 minutes (8 for steam to build up and 9 for the actual cooking).  I served the others a small scoop of vanilla ice cream with it, but I enjoyed it just as it was.

Fresh berries or coconut cream would really be wonderful with Paleo Instant Pot Lava Cakes too.  Continue reading
