Paleo Thanksgiving Desserts: Make One, Make All!

AvatarPosted by

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.

Update – this is a VERY old post, check out all The Ultimate Paleo Thanksgiving Recipes Roundup that is updated here that includes ALL the paleo thanksgiving desserts!

Paleo Spirit’s Paleo Pecan Pie

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!

Oh Snap Let’s Eat’s One Ingredient Ice Cream

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!

      1. ahaha, she knows, too… but dang, who can resist yummy deserts? i seldom try, lol… hey, banana is usually good in deserts (for me) because of its smell (only a hint) and the taste does not overwhelm the taste buds. go for banana, haha 😉 happy weekend…

  2. Crumb Cake Creations is offering $2 off per order of two or more cakes with coupon code THANKS. Their pumpkin crumb cake is absolutely to die for and has been a part of my Thanksgiving Dessert assortment for a few years now. Check them won’t be disappointed.
