Paleo Chocolate Mousse Stuffed Strawberries

These vegan and paleo Chocolate Mousse Stuffed Strawberries are so adorable to look at, easy to make, and are a healthy, delicious dessert for Valentine’s Day or any occasion!

Paleo Chocolate Mousse Stuffed Strawberries

For me, Valentine’s Day (or any occasion for that matter) is all about having a great meal instead of the dessert being the highlight of the celebration. So if I do want to enjoy something sweet, I prefer something small that I can eat in a bite or 2, and I created this recipe with exactly that in mind.

Today, I’m putting a twist on the classic chocolate covered strawberries by putting the chocolate INSIDE, and the result is these Paleo Chocolate Mousse Stuffed Strawberries that may be just too adorable to eat. And best of all, the chocolate mousse is made with avocados, making this a healthy little treat though you’ll never know it.

You do need a piping bag to make this recipe, especially if you want to make it pretty with the chocolate peaks coming out of the strawberries. But if you don’t have one, you can try to stuff the strawberries with a small spoon or a knife, and then cover it up with toppings of your choice.

I used a combination of shredded coconut flakes, chopped almonds, chopped goji berries, and chocolate chips to top the stuffed strawberries, and they all turned out so cute and so yummy. I highly recommend using some kind of nuts, because that crunchy texture is SO GOOD with the creamy mousse and tart strawberries.

You can also make these a day ahead and then refrigerate until they are ready to eat. It’s a perfect easy, bite-sized treat if you need something sweet and yummy!

Paleo Cranberry Pistachio Chocolate Cookies

These yummy and crunchy Paleo Cranberry Pistachio Chocolate Cookies are a delicious addition to your holiday dessert table!

Paleo Cranberry Pistachio Chocolate Cookies

I made these Paleo Cranberry Pistachio Chocolate Cookies on a whim to send out as holiday gifts to my friends and family, and thank goodness I did. I took one bite of these cookies and they are so delicious and amazing, and has the perfect amount of crunch from the pistachios. I probably would’ve have finished the whole thing in one sitting if I didn’t have to pack them up and ship them out.

I honestly didn’t give these cookies much thought when I first started making them and wasn’t even planning to share them with you. I just saw that I had pistachios and dried cranberries in my pantry and decided that they would go great together in cookie form. So I tested out a batch and I couldn’t believe how yummy they turned out, so I made 2 more batches to share them for the holidays (and the recipe with you!).

Paleo Cranberry Pistachio Chocolate Cookies

I love adding flaky sea salt to dessert recipes. The flavor and the texture they give are just the best, and I highly recommend you sprinkle some on these cookies to really let the tastes of cranberries and pistachios shine. It also gives such a festive, holiday look, and they remind me of light snowfall.

If you looking for gluten and grain free cookies that are a bit more special and fun than your regular old sugar cookies or chocolate chip cookies, you’ll love these Paleo Cranberry Pistachio Chocolate Cookies. Hope you enjoy!
