I am sure that some baked goods were some of the first foods. You don't really need anything other than fire and a rock and a hard place. I'll bet the first baked grain food was a tamale with stone-ground flour wrapped in a leaf or cooked in a basket. Acorn flour is already somewhat sweet.

I have never really liked baked goods - probably the years before diagnosis of celiacs, and the pain it caused. I am also not a good baker - I love to cook, just not with flours! As a result, my lack of enthusiasm shows in the product (I think).
I do like the occasional sweet, chocolate is a once a month indulgence if needed.
Honey in the comb, and maple syrup on snow - two things I have not eaten since I was a kid. Farm girl :)
Even before Paleo we did not 'do' dessert, unless it was a special event (like Thanksgiving, Christmas, Birthday). I am most likely still going to bake the few traditional recipes during these events (GF/CF/SF)

I have always preferred fruit to refined sugar! Call me crazy...
Really? I was thinking strawberries!

Lol! Blueberries to the rescue! ;)

I was wondering about that idea last night after reading entries here for snack and dessert ideas. My take- Groks didn't have ovens to bake sweets and probably didn't have the time or tools to grind various flours that are considered paleo by modern man. I think the idea of dessert was not even considered- Grok just grabbed a sweet treat off a tree or bush because it looked good and then discovered that it tasted good as well. That's why paleo is so easy- no baking of sweets required :-).
