Final batch ready to bake!

COOL before serving!

Addendum’s/Tips:
~Cool and fridge before serving.  I found that brings far more flavor and firms up the texture.
~Cut when cooled with a pizza slicer if you have it.
~I had to bake mine for 40 minutes….I may have even turned up the temp to 400.
~This is not classically Paleo as baking soda is not considered a Paleo ingredient- but it helps the dish rise. Some have removed it to keep true.
~Toss crushed almonds, coconut flakes pre-baking- or add chocolate, seeds, cranberries, whatever you want! Let us know some of YOUR ideas!!
