We love Paleo Treats.

These paleo-friendly desserts are made locally and a visit to the shop near Adams Avenue feels like a visit to our bohemian friend's house.

We love seeing what new piece of art Lee, one of the owners, has been working on, and just soaking up the good energy.

All the flavors are delicious, but we all have our go-to favorite.

There is a Paleo Treat flavor for every personality, and the one you reach for says a lot about your relationship to your fitness journey and the world around you.

The Poised Powerhouse

Ingredients: honey, cacao butter, eggs, coconut oil, cacao powder, almonds, espresso coffee, vanilla extract

Rocket, a dense espresso and chocolate treat, is made for those who want to fuel their fabulousness in the most indulgent way possible. You want to sweat, feel the burn, and look good doing it. You hit barre class on your way to a high-powered job downtown. The elegant movements of your fitness routine are reflected in your stylish elegance in the boardroom. You get the job done, and you know how to treat yourself.

The Poised Powerhouse

The Free Spirit

Ingredients: Almond flour, roasted almond butter, coconut oil, honey, cacao butter, flax meal, dried unsweetened coconut, cacao powder, vanilla extract, sea salt.

Nutty, sweet, and draped in chocolate, the Bandito is basically a grown-up peanut butter cup that speaks to the kid in you. From parkour to areal yoga, exercise is play time. You bound through Balboa Park when you need to clear your mind and get fresh inspiration for your startup or next creative project. Feeding your inner child is as essential as fueling your body.

The Free Spirit
The Renegade Hippy

The Renegade Hippy

Ingredients: Almond butter, coconut oil, walnuts, honey, almonds, raisins, pumpkin seeds, almond flour, coconut, vanilla, salt

Stuffed with seeds, nuts, and luscious coconut oil, the Mustang Bar is not your grandma’s granola bar. Sure, you’re a little crunchy, but your fitness routine goes way beyond meditation. We can find you biking the Mission Trails Climbers Loop and donning a wetsuit to swim laps in La Jolla Cove after a long day of advocacy. You know you don’t have to live on a commune to help make the planet a better place, though escaping into the great outdoors is your favorite way to recharge.

The Dabbler
The Non-Traditional Traditionalist

The Dabbler

Ingredients: Honey, cacao butter, almonds, raisins, cacao powder, pistachios, goji berries

Dark chocolate, nuts, and tart goji berries of the Cacao Now! are as unexpected a combination as your spin-lates class. You are super into the whole mind-body connection of pilates, but you also want the traditional sweat fest a spin class offers. You love variety, which is why you are a freelance hustler. Your life is organized chaos, and you are never bored.

The Non-Traditional Traditionalist

Ingredients: Honey, pecans, eggs, coconut oil, cacao powder, almond flour

The dense, pecan-studded Brownie Bomb has all the comfort food nostalgia you crave after finishing up your reps at the neighborhood gym, without all the processed crap you grew up eating. You like to keep your workout classic, with a good balance of weight training and cardio. And your life is no different. You are a go-getter at the office, but when you get home, it’s all about family time. Work-life balance is your superpower.

The Leave-it-all-on-the-Field Maniac

Ingredients: Shredded coconut, egg whites, honey, cacao powder, cacao nibs, vanilla extract

Crunchy coconut and little bursts of chocolate? The Mac Attack! Is your kind of dessert—clean and extreme. Crossfit is life. Your job in sales is a great outlet for your voracious appetite for challenges and it’s a means to an end. That end is your next vacation; a trip to Peru to hike Machu Picchu.

How well does your flavor choice reflect your style? Let us know on Facebook and Instagram.
