Healthy yet somehow delicious desserts in the East Village

Before you update your Facebook status to read “it's about time SD got saber-tooth jerky and Glyptodon belly”, you should probably know that Paleo Treats are actually super-healthy, dairy-/gluten-free desserts made by a small outfit of active-minded folks who've been satisfying the sweet teeth of the health-conscious through their website since 2009, and're now opening their downtown office to get you sugar high without the shipping & handling. Highlights include:

The Brownie Bomb made with honey/pecans/eggs/coconut oil/cacao powder is supposedly “the best brownie you'll ever taste”, but to be fair, they have no way of knowing you've been saving all of your stems since high school.

Boosting your health like the laughter generated by Rob McElhenney's flailing martial arts barrages, this Mac Attack is a cacao powder-laced take on the macaroon

You already like almonds, raisins, pistachios, and honey, and you're planning on looking up goji berries, so you really have no excuse not to eat this Cacao Now chocolate bar.

If your Facebook status frequently reads “I'm so hungry I could eat a horse(!!!)”, gross. And lame. Also, the Mustang Bar's probably perfect for you, even if it is loaded with walnuts, almonds, raisins, pumpkin seeds, almond flour, and coconut in lieu of actual horse.
