What is your favorite naughty paleo treat...when what you really want is that snickers bar?

This is what I do as well (although I sometimes used well-drained tinned fruit if I'm feeling particularly lazy - keeping an eye on the sugar content on the label, of course).

I'm with you and Rouge Nutrionist on the medjool. I can have just one or one cut up in homemade yoghurt made with cream and add a half of a sliced banana. Often the scale is not my friend after that, but I recover and do it again.

Ha, ha - I guess you could leave the bananas/almonds out of the flambé recipe and make some sort of hot rum toddy instead. How's that appeal to you?

Coconut milk ice cream...it has agave, which technically isnt paleo, but damn is it good! Creamy, fatty, filling and slightly sweet. I found a company that makes it about an hour away from my house so that makes me feel better about eating local. I probably eat it too much though....

Something about the sweetness and texture of bananas really satisfies as it reminds me of all those sweet SAD carbs like cake and pancakes, so I tend go a bit bananas (groan) when making Paleo-friendly treats. My favourites include;

A frozen banana dipped in a little dark chocolate.

Bananas and cream or Greek yoghurt.

If you really want to push the boat out;

Banana flamb?? (ripe bananas saut??ed with butter, dark rum, slivered almonds and a sprinkling of Demerara sugar) served with cream.

An unpeeled banana with a few squares of very dark chocolate inserted, wrapped in foil and baked until the chocolate is melted and the banana is just a pool of molten deliciousness.

ETA: I feel that I should give credit where due. The last one is a holdover from my Girl Guides days, and trust me, yes it does taste better when cooked in the embers of a campfire and eaten kneeling in the grass, steaming hot and straight out of the foil with a disposable spork.

Coconut butter mixed with a little cocoa powder, a dash of cinnamon, and a few crushed walnuts or pecans.

To me, it almost tastes like cheesecake.

At all times I have about five half liter containers of natural vanilla ice cream in the freezer. It has milk, eggs, sugar, and vanilla. And I make it myself sometimes. I don't really think it's naughty unless you don't care for the sugar or it invades the overall quality of your diet... something I call "calorie displacement syndrome" where you're addicted to the stuff and your overall diet suffers as a result. Still you couldn't ask for more joy in such a small space.

Not sure if this is paleo (maybe more primal) but I love cutting up fruit and throwing it in some whipped up heavy cream. It helps me get through the rough times lol. Also paleo cookies... I don't even use honey to sweeten anymore- just loads of cut up fruit in a (almond/pecan/or coconut meal) cookie! lol

Baked sweet potato fries loaded with butter/coconut oil, cinnamon, and salt! Its not really a treat by most peoples standards but when you end up eating 4 sweet potatoes worth of fries then its hard to consider it healthy.

I take an oskri organic fig bar and coat the top and bottom of it with fresh coconut flakes by pressing them into the bar under wax paper. I'm considering drizzling some melted Green & Black's Organic 85% Dark Chocolate over just to be really naughty.

Primal Brownies - eggs, coconut (not coconut flour -- whole coconut ground in the food processor), dehydrated coconut palm nectar, cinnamon, unsweetened cocoa, cooked sweet potatoes (mashed) and ground/powdered cacao nibs. Sometimes, if we're feelin' froggy, we toss in a handful of crushed pieces of maple sugar ('cause both of us grew up in the North, so we love real maple sugar!!!), but that's only for the holidays or something like that.

If we're talking about going further off the ancestral path, Rum Balls -- basically, I make them with coconut butter, organic/raw unsweetened cocoa powder, coconut nectar, ground pistachios, ground cashews, and really, really GOOD rum.

Frozen bananas blended with coconut milk, or a cup of extremely cold almond butter. I avoid dairy because I end up binging on it, so when I want ice cream I eat similarly cold and creamy substitutes. My non-paleo mother keeps Ben N Jerry's in the freezer and while I gag at her toast and pasta, I whimper a little when I see her tenderly spoon up Bonnaroo Buzz.

A ripe banana, sprinkled with chopped nuts and drizzled in honey. Heaven! I enjoy it far more than any store-bought confection now -- which I never thought I would.

Fresh sliced peaches with heavy cream...coconut milk with berries...I guess these aren't 'naughty', really, but they're my fave Paleo treats, and calm my cravings for sweets in a heartbeat.

ETA: I just made Julia Child's Chocolate Mousse recipe from "Mastering the Art of French Cooking." It's Paleo once adapted: No added sugar, and using 85% dark chocolate. The ingredients are eggs, butter, and chocolate (she adds orange liqueur and coffee; I added vanilla and almond extracts instead).

IT. WAS. AMAZING. :: chocolate heaven ::

Dark chocolate! Or, if trying for that ice cream feeling, frozen blueberries drizzles with coconut cream. (the full fat that you use for Thai curries)

Lately I've been eating a carrot dipped repeatedly in crunchy almond butter when I get home, and it fulfills some deep nomnomnom eating over the sink need in my soul.

Not that I would turn down a Snickers bar some days.
