The Top Caveman Diet Cookbook Dessert Recipes

– Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

This recipe is seriously to die for, as it is completely gluten and dairy free and also follows the rules of the caveman diet. If you shared some of these cookies with your friends (which you likely won’t), they won’t even think that these were completely caveman approved.

Ingredients:

1 tbsp of coconut flour
1 cup of almond flour
1 egg
3 tbsp of raw organic honey
5 tbsp of coconut oil
1/4 cup of melted dark chocolate
1/4 cup of cacao powder
1/3 cup of chopped macadamia nuts
1/4 cup of organic chocolate chips
1 tsp of organic vanilla extract
1/4 tsp of baking soda
1/8 tsp of Himalayan sea salt

Directions:

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F, and like your baking sheet using making liner. Now, mix all of the dry ingredients together in a mixing bowl, and the wet ingredients in another. After both are perfectly mixed individually, combine them together to make the cookie dough. Fold in the rest of the chocolate chips and nuts for more texture. With a cookie scoop spoon, start placing cookie dough balls on the baking sheet to bake for 15 minutes. When they are perfectly golden brown, just cool them on a rack and serve with a glass of almond milk.

– Chocolate Cake

If you have a sweet tooth and just started the caveman diet, then you’re probably missing cake. But this recipe will definitely mend and satisfy all your cravings as it is just as good if not better than any other chocolate cake out there while still being completely grain, gluten, and dairy free.

Ingredients:

3 cups of almond flour
3/4 cup of raw cacao powder
1/4 cup of coconut flour
1/2 cup of raw coconut palm sugar
1 tsp of salt
2 tsp of baking soda
1/2 cup of melted coconut oil
3 large eggs
1 cup of coconut milk
2 tbsp of raw honey
2 tsp of vanilla extract

Middle layer ingredients for Ganache:
2 tbsp of raw honey
1 can of coconut milk
1/2 tsp of vanilla extract
4 tbsp of raw cacao powder

Frosting ingredients:

3/4 cup of dark chocolate chips
6 tbsp of coconut milk

Directions:

Preheat your oven at 350 degrees F and grease a 7 inch springform pan with the coconut oil using parchment paper. In a mixing bowl, mix the almond flour, cacao powder, flour, sugar, salt, and baking soda, and slowly mix the dry and wet ingredients together. Bake the batter for 45 minutes. If you feel you need to cook it longer, cover the cake with some aluminum foil to prevent it from burning and re-bake the cake at 325 degrees F for 5 minutes so that the bottom is perfectly cooked. Allow to cool and then pour all the ganache over to finally refrigerate for 30 minutes. Sprinkle with whatever other toppings you like and enjoy. To make the frosting, simply melt the chocolate to simmer and cool for 5 minutes.
