a little over 1/4 cup honey
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
nutmeg to taste
cinnamon to taste
Pre-heat your oven at 350
line a 9x 12 baking dish with parchment paper
combine wet ingredients
stir in the dry ingredients
pour the batter
cook for 18-20 mins or until a fork comes out clean
Mixing the wet ingredients
Adding some Colorado organic honey!
Final batch ready to bake!
COOL before serving!
~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!!
