Who doesn’t crave sweets once in a while? If someone says they don’t, well…I’d like to meet this person face to face and ask them what their secret is!
Cravings are totally normal. I crave sweets all the time, and just like me, I bet a lot of you do as well. It’s good to know we’re not alone on this one, huh!?
I find comfort in knowing that the Paleo diet is not limiting at all when it comes to treats. That with a bit of creativity and a few key ingredients, one can create wonderful desserts that will most definitely hit the spot when cravings come knocking on our door.
Ingredients such as organic fruits, RAW honey, organic maple syrup and organic coconut sugar, allow us to create wonderful sweet recipes. Thank goodness for those! I always keep my pantry stocked up with these little guys.
Let me share with you a fun and super easy recipe I made yesterday. This recipe was a total hit; I prepared it in no time, with readily available ingredients (no need to drive to a grocery store during this awful winter weather) and it tasted just fantastic.
Here is my ‘How-to: Prepare a 3-Ingredient Caramel Sauce’ recipe for you guys. Use it to top fruits and/or Paleo desserts!
- ½ cup maple syrup
- ½ cup honey
- ½ tsp baking soda
- Add maple syrup and honey to a saucepan, place it over medium heat and stir constantly. Once mixture begins to warm up, reduce heat to medium-low. Do not let mixture boil, if boiling happens, start over as caramel will have a burnt taste.
- After stirring for about 10 minutes, the sauce will have thickened a bit. Remove from heat, quickly mix in baking soda and return pan to low heat for 3 minutes, stirring constantly.
- Remove from heat and let cool. Serve right away or store in a jar with a lid.
- Measuring spoons
- Measuring cups
- Small Mason Jars (or tight containers)
Keep in tight container in a cool area. Lasts 1 week.
