If you are planning to have a Paleo or Primal Thanksgiving meal, you might find that desserts are the most difficult part to make paleo-friendly. (Desserts, and also stuffing.) So like the last post about Paleo Thanksgiving recipes I’ve found, I thought I’d concentrate on just desserts this time.
My favorite type of Thanksgiving dessert is probably the Pumpkin Pie. This pumpkin pie is Almond Flour based. Primal Palate’s recipes all look pretty great, and The Food Lover’s Kitchen, which holds a lot of paleo/primal recipes!
This almond flour based carrot cake looks delicious, and though the honey cream cheese frosting isn’t really paleo-friendly, Forty Cake’s recommends a paleo coconut frosting you can use from Elana’s Pantry.
This Coconut Flour crusted pecan pie is sweetened naturally! By dates, applesauce, pure maple syrup and molasses… and there might be a little rum too! (But as the author points out, that’s optional!)
I’ve never thought about making a Pecan Pie Brittle before, and definitely didn’t think about how to make it paleo friendly, but PaleOMG’s Pecan Pie Brittle definitely has me thinking. This Pecan Pie Brittle is sweetened by honey and maple syrup and lots of pecan.
What is a Galette? It’s basically “a term used in French cuisine to designate various types of flat, round or freeform crusty cakes.” See the picture and recipes for more information! I have personally never made a Galette before, and have never been the biggest fan of apple pies, but this one, I think I will give a try!
Shameless plug, of course… but here’s another idea for your Thanksgiving dessert! Obviously, this is not a real ice “cream”, but even people that don’t eat paleo-style can’t tell! That’s how good it is. To make it more “Thanksgiving” I recommend adding some pumpkin puree in to the mix! Go check out how easy it is to make, I posted step by step directions!
