So I made this recipe a while back when I was going through one of my baking spurts. Sometimes I just feel the need to bake and create sweet treats, and then pawn them off on other people since I ate half the batter in the process. The baked treats aren’t my weakness, the paleo batter on the other hand ignites my naughty side. I usually have fingers covered in batter…and saliva. Gross.

These cake brownie thingies were created for one of my best friends, Jimmy. Not only is this guy a stud when it comes to his jobs, CrossFit, AND school (he just graduated!!), but he is a PHENOMENAL cook. Remember how I recently mentioned that I only surround myself with people who love food as much as I do…well, Jimmy is one of those people. Our relationship seems to be built around food. No I don’t think you really understand…unless you’ve been around the two of us at the gym and wondered why the hell we look like we are having the most deep conversation anyone has ever had, and come to find out we are talking about pork and sweet potatoes, you really don’t get our relationship. Him and I could chat about recipes for hours upon hours during the day. And we do. And then we fill the other 20 hours with sending picture messages of our food to each other. It’s like food sexting. And we’re hella good at it. Jimmy inspires many of my recipes; he’s one creative son-of-a-b. In a good way, of course.

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. Dude, these were freakin’ amazing. I’m headed to a paleo potluck dinner tonight and am in charge of the dessert. I actually ate too many out of the first batch and had to make a second. Will def be making these again. Thanks!

  2. I just discovered your site – I made these last night – taste is good, but I only baked them for 23 minutes and they were dry – I think 20 minutes next time will be good.

    1. I’m sorry Jennifer, but I never look at nutritional info myself. There are a ton of helpful sites out there that you can add the ingreidents into and if will give you the information needed.

  3. about to make and cook these, sounds very yummy! I’ve only just begun the paleo lifestyle dietry changes, so any helpful information and recipies I can find are well needed and appreciated. Your site is great and you’ve made such a great effort in putting this site together and with all the recipies and your personal experience. I will be checking back often.


  4. OMG! Amazing
    I am fairly new to your website and just love all the great recipes so far! I even got the kids to try these. Thanks 🙂

  5. Hi I’m new to Paleo and have a huge sweet tooth I was just curios do you use unsweetened shredded coconut?

  6. These were delicious! Next time I might add a tablespoon of honey, just for my liking…thank you!

  7. Hi Juli-
    I’ve been paleo for about 2 years now and your blog is one of my all time favs…. must have used at least half of your recipes. Thanks for all you do!
    You rock!!!

  8. I don’t eat solely Paleo but was cooking a meal for a couple of friends who are. So I made 3 of your recipes (including this one) and all I can say is WOW!! Thanks so much for awesomely tasty, easy to follow recipes that Paleo and non-Paleo alike can enjoy!

  9. Hey Juli! I’m desperately trying to find a paleo German chocolate cake recipe. Do you think this would be good as the cake foundation? Maybe doubled and put into 2 round pans? Or maybe you know of another recipe I could use. Would love your help! 🙂

    1. might work, but i’m sure you can find a german chocolate cake out there! i know that kelly from has one in her cookbook!

  10. I have been Paleo for a couple of months now. Found your website. Love the recipes I have tried so far.Going to use these for a cookie exchange. . Got my husband and daughter to try the banana muffins(picky and non paleo to eat) (I added my own twist, kept it paleo) Turned out very decadent! I look forward to trying more of your receipes.
