Plantain Tortillas (Two Ways)

Add Plantain Tortillas to the long list of overdue recipes here at Do You Even Paleo.

Since I first tried plantains, I’ve professed how much I love them. I’ve made plantain patties, plantain muffins, plantain cake, plantain beef bowls, and more. These starchy veggies are so incredibly versatile…it’s hard not to love them.

I’ve made plantain tortillas numerous times over the past few years, and I finally took the time to write down my favorite ways to make them. Both of these methods do take a little prep time, but tacos with these tortillas are so freaking good…you won’t regret it!

Chocolate Hazelnut Tart | DoYouEvenPaleo.net

Chocolate Hazelnut Tart

Chocolate and hazelnut are a match made in heaven. This gluten free chocolate hazelnut tart marries the two perfectly.

Admission: this no-bake tart is my last dessert for a while. I’m all sweetenered out! I really went down the rabbit hole of sweets, creating my dark chocolate pots de crème with marshmallow crème, then maca hot chocolate, then maple pecan bars, and finally this treat.

I’ll be back to nourishing whole foods for the foreseeable future. After all, one can’t live off of tarts and custards alone (and I never intended for this blog to be solely desserts)!

If we’re going to wave goodbye to desserts for a bit, this chocolate hazelnut tart is an epic send-off. A basic, press-in mixture makes up the crust like I’ve used in the past for my mocha avocado cream pie. Then you pour in creamy hazelnut butter (which you can buy pre-made or make at home). Finally, top the whole thing off with a thick layer of silky chocolate ganache.

Maple Pecan Bars

I’ve been posting a lot of chocolate treats lately, so it’s about time for a cocoa-free treat. Enter: Maple Pecan Bars. Gooey, sweet, and rustic, these simple little bars make a great dessert year-round.

My favorite type of pie is definitely pecan. It’s my top choice every year for Thanksgiving or Christmas. These maple pecan bars remind me of a rich pecan pie, but with a thinner gooey center. And even though I’m debuting these bars around Valentine’s Day, I could certainly see myself making these for Thanksgiving.

Dairy Free Maca Hot Chocolate | DoYouEvenPaleo.net

Maca Hot Chocolate (Dairy Free)

Curl up with your sweetie and enjoy a rich warm mug of Maca Hot Chocolate. It’s the dairy free date night dessert designed to amp up the fun! (I spent way too long writing that sentence.)

Originally, I wanted to perfect this recipe for Christmas, but I decided to hold off. Why? Well, it makes a bit more sense for Valentine’s Day… after all, maca is purportedly an herbal libido booster. Chocolate + frisky feelings. I can’t think of many other things I’d want for V-Day.
