I see there are many recipes of paleo pancakes, brownies, ice cream, cinnamon rolls (oooh myy, looks soo good..), etc. Is this something you include in your diet, or do you stay away from baking and keep it totally clean?

I certainly agree that there are many paleo treat recipes and, yes, I've pinned quite a few of them. But have I made them? Only a few and only for special occasions when hosting other people. (Often, they turn out a little dissapointing.)... (more)

What happens to sugar after it is baked? Does Glucose, Fructose, Sucrose have the same chemical properties after baking or do they become similar at the end? More theory than practice as I don't bake much anymore.

Baked goods with sugars usually contain substantial levels of acrylamides due to Maillard reactions that occur while said goods are being heated to high temperatures. Acrylamides are toxic and carcinogenic, see here:... (more)

Something like Brazilian Cheese Bread is simple, easy, fast and tasty. They are hard to stop eating so having a crowd to finish them off is best. Also some good pumpkin pie with nut crusts, google for recipes. (more)

BobK 0 · November 22, 2013 at 5:26 AM

If baked in close quarters; small / deep dish time will need to be longer than if in a shallower dish...... but in any case 40 minutes is pretty short. check out this link... http://bit.ly/I70DmW

When baking, do you find that there's a significant difference in the final product when you use avocado as opposed to coconut oil or ghee?
