Top 20 Paleo Vegan Dessert Recipes of 2017 (V, GF): A mouthwatering collection of the best paleo desserts to satisfy your sweet tooth! Vegan, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Paleo.

Chocolate. Coconut. Almond Butter. These 3 simple ingredients had THE BEST year on Beaming Baker! Especially when it came to paleo vegan desserts.

As the year draws to an end, I’ve had the delightful opportunity to look back at my analytics and see what paleo recipes you’ve loved the most. Hint: see the first three words of this post. 😉

I started the year with just a few paleo recipes under my baking belt (whatever that looks like), and am ending it with many, many more.

Next year, I hope to get way better at paleo baking, but in the meantime, it’ll be loads of fun reminiscing about (i.e. drooling over) the tastiest mostly no-bake paleo recipes of 2017. There’s something for everyone! A tasty baked treat, no bake dessert bars (my fave), and even some ice cream for the win!

Ultimate Fudgy Paleo Vegan Brownies: SO fudgy and so decadent. A huge reader fave!

Please, tell me people still use “for the win.” I’ve barely started awkwardly using “on fleek” and then had to “quickly” realize that that’s soooo passé. Shoot…

Anyway, be sure to send me your paleo recipe suggestions/requests for next year. You know I need like 4 months advance notice to work on this shiz! And by shiz, I mean carefully, thoughtfully, and gracefully symphonic recipes that ooze class and taste (but really, taste).

In 2018, as always, I’m gonna try my darndest to give you the quality paleo recipes your deserve and expect. Now who’s ready to make some of our newly minted BB paleo classics?

  1. Almond butter chocolate bars were a huge hit in my family. Thank you for the great easy recipe.

    1. Woohoo! That’s wonderful Rebecca! Thanks for stopping by to let me know. ☺️

  2. I love your recipes! My request would be for vegan paleo healthy cookies that are crispy/crunchy. So many cookies now are soft-baked. Maybe it’s because I grew up with unhealthy store-bought cookies like Chips Ahoy and Oreos, but sometimes I just crave something that’s a little bit toothsome.

    Although I will say nostalgia is a weird thing. For years after becoming vegetarian (this was before becoming vegan/WFPB, I craved Oreos but wouldn’t buy them because of the lard. Finally, after many years of being Oreo-less, Nabisco tweaked the recipe. No more lard! Happy days! So of course I bought a package and ugh….just seemed like cardboard. No taste. I would hate to think the lard was what made them good—your recipes are lardless of course and delish! But I sure do remember enjoying dunking them in milk (although then they would soften, so now we are back to soft cookies—maybe I don’t know what I want?).

    My big request to you: don’t change! I know change can be good, but I enjoy your recipes, stories, writing, and photography way too much to want any big changes for 2018.

    1. Thank you so much for your comment, Ellen. 🙂 They always brighten my day–and provide such great insight! Nostalgia is definitely a weird thing! I just had this long conversation with my sister about all of these childhood faves. She said she recently had some of them and they were nothing like she remembered (Twinkies, various ice cream bars, etc.) Probably all of our tastebuds developed and changed over the years to want/truly enjoy different flavors. As for the crispy cookies: consider it done (in like four-five months, of course haha)! I’m currently testing a crispy, chewy and dense cookie that I think you’ll love. It’s a bit more on the indulgent side, but it’s good to have a super satisfying cheat treat once in awhile!

      On change: thank you. That means a lot to me. I’ll keep being the same ol’ me, with a few improvements, and I’ll work my best to never disappoint you. Here’s to an awesome 2018!

    1. Aw, thanks! You’re making me blush! 🙂 Make them immediately and let me know how you like them! Enjoy. 🙂
