Review and Giveaway! “The Paleo Chocolate Lover’s Cookbook” by Kelly V. Brozyna

December 13th, 2013 by Lisa

"The Paleo Chocolate Lover's Cookbook" by Kelly V. Brozna.  The perfect gift for your chocolate-loving friend or family member!  Enter to win a free copy at!  Giveaway runs 12/13/13 - 12/20/13.

 Friday, December 20, 2013.  This giveaway is now over.  Thanks so much for your comments!  I enjoy reading them!  The winner has been randomly chosen and notified by email.  Congratulations Laura!



Happy Friday!  I love that I get to end the week with chocolate!  :-)

Doesn’t the  picture on the cover of this cookbook look enticing?  It sure does!   This is Chocolate Crepe Cake with Coconut Cream.  It’s just one of the many delicious recipes in “The Paleo Chocolate Lover’s Cookbook” by Kelly V. Brozyna.

Kelly Brozyna is well know for her blog The Spunky Coconut, where she shares her wonderful Paleo, gluten-free, dairy-free recipes.  She is also the author of “The Spunky Coconut Cookbook”, “The Spunky Coconut Gluten-Free Baking and Desserts” and  “The Spunky Coconut Dairy-Free Ice Cream”.  Kelly has celiac disease, while her daughter is allergic to gluten and has autism.  She has found, like so many others, that her family’s health depends on a very healthy, grain-free, dairy-free, gluten-free, Paleo diet.

While Kelly doesn’t suggest that the chocolate treats in her book be eaten everyday, she believes that healthy desserts can be an important part of your diet.  After all, chocolate has many health benefits including lowering blood pressure and releasing those feel-good endorphins!

Now, on to the recipes!  Here is a sample of what you will find:

  • Chocolate Swirl Cheese Danish Cake
  • Chocolate Chunk Buttermilk Muffins
  • German Chocolate Cake
  • Macadamia Brownies
  • Lava Cakes
  • Black Forest Cupcakes
  • Birthday Cookie Cake
  • White Chocolate Dipped Macadamia Biscotti
  • No-Bake Chocolate Chip “Peanut Butter” Cookies
  • Salted Caramel Bacon Bark  (Yes.  That’s what I said.)
  • Chocolate Truffles

There are so many more!

Kelly has generously offered to give away a free copy of her book to one very lucky reader!
