    Curious how to figure out the calorie and nutrition info for some of these deliciousNess deserts????

    These recipes are not Paleo. The Chestnut Brownies contain butter – dairy is not permitted on the paleo diet. Also, nearly all of the recipes contain honey which is not paleo either. While I would agree that these are healthier desserts, this is a highly misleading blog post.

      That’s a pretty easy substitution…palm oil, coconut oil

      Us Paleos are adaptable

        Sure, you can substitute or leave those ingredients out, but in the case of your Brownie, you are going to end up with a completely different flavor since only 3 of 7 ingredients are paleo. I think that it would be cool to post actual paleo recipes that have been tested and taste decent:

        “Paleo Brownies” ( 3 of 7 Paleo Ingredients )
        Paleo 14 large chestnuts, roasted and peeled
        NO (contains dairy) 1/4 cup butter
        Paleo 1/2 cup cocoa powder
        NO (contains alcohol) 1 tsp vanilla extract
        NO (high glycemic index) 4 tbsps honey
        NO (contains dairy) 3oz dark chocolate
        Paleo 3 large eggs, separated
