Paleo Chocolate Peanut Butter Pudding + Desserts in Jars Cookbook Giveaway

The best part of eating clean are the cheat days, and the best part of having children is when you can turn them into your own personal indentured servants. It’s all about the payoff, and I look forward to the day when I have kids to vacuum and clean up dead squirrels from the front porch, because I am TOO FANCY for such things.

And the best part of being a food blogger is the swag for just cooking up stuff and writing about slave labor. My friend Isabel over at Family Foodie invited me to a Desserts in Jars party she was hosting at Datz Dough, a new pastry-centric restaurant spinoff from the highly acclaimed Datz Delicatessen in Tampa, FL. They have boozy milkshakes there. Just…just let that thought marinate a minute.

Desserts In Jars


The event was to celebrate Datz’s induction of various desserts in jars as inspired by Shaina Olmanson‘s newest cookbook, Desserts in Jars. Their newest menu items include Shaina’s peanut butter cup cupcake, caramel crème cheesecake, pull apart cinnamon bread, cherry almond crumble, and lemon meringue pie with thyme shortbread crust.

All of these recipes and more are in the above aforementioned cookbook, and I am giving it away to one lucky winner! To qualify, use the RaffleCopter below to enter.



Please note: If you follow a paleo template, this cookbook has zero paleo recipes, but it’s great for cheat days!


For my own personal contribution to desserts in jars, I made a paleo-friendly dessert of chocolate and “peanut butter” pudding (which is actually almond butter since, you know, legumes are evil) with no dairy, no refined sugar, no junky stuff.

The bad thing about cheat days are that I usually eat sweets to the point of delicious nausea, though I never actually get sick. I haven’t thrown up in 20 years, but the last time I did throw up it was on a talking Pee-wee Herman doll with a pull string on its back. Anyway, after I vommed on Pee-wee he only spoke in a low demonic voice, and I’m 105% certain I passed the devil into him. So what I’m saying is…this house is clean.


My god, this is not appropriate food blog fodder. Who even let me on the computer? Forget I said anything and just enter this damn giveaway.

    Mmm these sound incredible! I don’t have a favorite dessert in a jar, I haven’t ventured into that realm of baking yet! Hopefully this book will remedy my plight. Or I will forever consider fresh canned jam with some whipped cream on top to be a dessert in a jar…

    Ditto on the cheat days. Any ice cream in my vicinity does not stand a chance. This would be perfect for such occasions though!
