Back around Christmas time my sister challenged Joe and my dad to eat completely Paleo for 1 month. This of course meant I would be making paleo meals for 1 month, me the girl who hates fruits and vegetables. What is a girl to do?? Search Pinterest of course! That's where I found this recipe from PaleOMG. Caramel Pecan Bars, that are paleo? How? I honestly made these just to prove to myself that caramel paleo bars would be nasty. Well people, I can admit when I am wrong, and boy oh boy was I wrong. These things were AMAZING! Like, bake and eat it, whether you're a paleo caveman or not! The nutty cake tastes almost like a really delicious crust and the frosting?! Life Changing! Doing the Paleo Diet but craving a big ole' piece of cake?
Where there's a meal, there's a way!

Want a Yummy Healthy (paleo and vegan) frosting? Try this out! It's Keleigh (and kid) approved!

This frosting is so good I've tried it out on regular cake, and it's still amazing (caramel frosting recipe) ! After trying this I've used dates soaked in vanilla to sweeten cakes, sweet potato casseroles and more! It's a supremely tasty alternative to sugar! I've even fooled picky kids into thinking it was just a regular frosting. If it can fool kids (and me) believe me, it's great!
Juli is a wizard when it comes to whipping up Paleo culinary masterpieces! For someone like me who is a picky eater and still somewhat new to paleo, PaleOMG is an incredible resource for amazing paleo recipes! With over 290,000 likes on Facebook, I think it's safe to say that Juli is a paleo superhero.
