Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Sun Butter Cups and other Paleo Christmas Treats!

Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Sun Butter Cups and other Paleo Christmas Treats!

When I was little, I wanted to give gifts to family members at Christmas time.  We didn’t have a ton of money growing up so instead fo my parents handing me money to buy gifts my mom taught me the joy of gifting baked goods!

We would spend days before Christmas baking then package them all into boxes, tins or on plates and gift them.  Since then I can’t remember a year that I haven’t been in the kitchen the days leading up to Christmas pouring, mixing, measuring and baking!  I love it!

Since I’ve changed my eating habits over the past few years, my baking has changed as well.  I still enjoy sharing yummy goodies with others I just try to keep them Paleo friendly so I can taste them too 🙂  Plus, it’s a bit healthier to share grain-free, sugar-free and often times dairy-free treats!

In case you’re looking for some healthier treat options for others or just for yourself, I’ve put together a list of recipes I’m planning to make.

Okay so maybe I won’t be making ALL of them but I’ll definitely be spending a good amount of time in the kitchen the next few days.  If only the Elf on the Shelf could magically clean up the mess afterwards…
