I'm aware that mooncakes don't pass the paleo purity test, but I'm not looking for an optimal food, just a once-annually treat that won't give me IBS flareups.
I've seen some in Taiwan that were made with mochi and other other things, but I don't have the first clue where I could get those in the US.
GODDDDDD BLESS the person who can address this. I work in Chinatown and the fam has been making their requests. 'Tis the season.
In the meantime, there's this raw vegan recipe, if you want to put the effort into something similar: http://www.rawveganhongkong.com/2009/09/13/second-attempt-for-raw-vegan-moon-cake/
