For those already on the Paleo eating program, Jane Barthelemy's Paleo Desserts is a welcome adjunct With recipes like Black Forest Cake and Key Lime Pie, no one need feel deprived.”
From the Author
My cookbook is the result of my personal journey as a chef, health practitioner, and food lover. I wrote Paleo Desserts because I wanted to re-create all the classic American desserts that I once craved, in a Paleolithic, or hunt-and-gather version. Any caveperson could make them, that is, if he or she had a food processor!
If you enjoy a special diet, welcome home. Perhaps you've found that gluten, sweets, dairy, or nightshades are not what you need. Maybe you miss your favorite sweets, but know they will not make you healthy and happy.
These recipes give you delicious desserts that are truly nourishing, and extremely low in carbs. They're tastier than my Mom's, because they're made with real food like fresh vegetables, tart fruits, and nuts. All of the recipes are free of gluten, grains, dairy, beans, nightshades, industrial gmo foods like corn, soy, canola, and all sugars. Hooray!
Although I suggest ingredients, I'm not promoting any product. I want you to choose the ingredients that are right for you. The recipes were built around the carefully researched products I suggest, and you are free to take a chance experimenting with your favorite ingredients. The main "flour" is pure shredded coconut (27% carbs) ground in any food processor. The suggested sweetener is Just Like Sugar Table Top natural chicory root sweetener with zero carbs. You are free to substitute your own sweetener cup for cup.
For me - and perhaps for you - this has been an interesting journey of giving up a lot of foods, one at a time. Paleo Desserts was motivated by my enormous passion for sweets - a passion so strong I had to find a way to create sweets that are also good for my body and every body.

Her coconut flour mix is nothing short of brilliant. This cooks very differently than processed coconut flour and the end product lacks the mushy, too moist texture I have gotten from regular coconut flour. Also, this flour blend seems to extend the shelf life of baked goods. If you have made something like muffins with regular coconut flour you might know what I mean - they are great right out of the oven, but not so good the next day. As a side note, I am not a big fan of coconut, and I don't find the flavor of anything I have tried in the book yet to be too coconutty.
I made the key lime pie yesterday with avocado.... Even my picky eater gobbled it up and he hates avocado. I tried the apple pie last week and found the crust to be a little tough (may be because of my substitutions) but I think it will make a perfect pop tart.
I have been baking GF and Paleo for some time now and I can say that Jane really thinks outside of the box. if you enjoy baking, you will find a plethora of tips and ideas that will take you in new directions.
EDIT- I initially left 3 stars and the above review because it cost $40+ in unusual ingredients just to get started but boy I tell you what, those ingredients and this book are a mainstay in my kitchen now. Great cooking tips and awesome recipes
So, if you're one of the people for whom Just Like Sugar doesn't taste bitter, you'll love this book. But I would warn you against making one of these recipes for a party, because you are going to find a lot of people who will not like it. As for me, I'll start finding ways to make some of these desserts using erythritol, so I thank the author for the inspiration.
The pictures are inspiring, and the recipes are both straightforward and CONSCIOUS, i.e., this is not just a "carbohydrate-light" book...it consciously integrates recipes to give the reader MANY OPTIONS--SOY FREE, PEANUT FREE, EGG FREE, DAIRY FREE, SUGAR FREE, ETC...EVEN SOME RAW DESSERTS!. To name just a few here....We loved the Mexican Wedding cookies, and we loved the Raspberry Rose Delight Mousse. I also happen to love strawberry shortcake, and to be able to return to yesteryear with Jane's non-gluten version of this is probably worth the price of the book alone--which, by the way, is also a good deal.... Highly recommended.
