Vanilla extract is indeed quite strong - it's usually made in hard liquors such as bourbon. I've seen them range from 70-80 proof. Fortunately it takes very little to give its flavor.  Little enough that I personally wouldn't be too woried... (more)

Hi @sunnyla1978! The corn in them makes them a non-paleo treat.  But you could use it as a cheat meal if you need a cheat meal and are paleo and go by the 80/20 rule. Personally I use the 95/5 rule, meaning I try to eat paleo 100 percent of... (more)
