I really do not want to use a host of substitutions to make food taste like non-paleo food. In my opinion, it defeats the purpose. Additionally, I can't use some of the substitutions because I am either allergic to them or haven't had the test to see if I'm not allergic to them. I'm severely allergic to nuts but also allergic to pineaplle and bananas. It's still up in the air if I am allergic to coconut. I had something last March with coconut in it but ended up in the hospital. The doctor wanted to verify with a blood/skin test but I didn't get around to it. It's on the agenda to iron this out in December!
With that said, I went for a very basic first paleo dessert:
- 1 apple sliced
- Sprinkled cinnamon
- Baking dish
- Oven set to 350 degrees
I decided it was done when the apple slices were soft but not mushy.
Apples are naturally sweet so it takes very little to enhance the flavor to meet my sweet tooth needs while on paleo. Just baked apples with cinnamon is awesome. :)
I also tried it with dots of butter on the slices, even better!
