So, I know, paleo sweets are only supposed to be eaten in moderation. But...they're so good. And baking makes me happy when I'm angry. And the on-base supermarket on payday is hell on earth.
So I came home after four hours of dodging children darting in front of my cart and trying not to slam my cart into the backs of peoples legs and I saw two pears that really needed to get eaten.
So I answered the call of my oven and I baked.
So, I couldn't find any paleo recipes and I had to modify, but things turned out wonderfully.
2 (very) rip pears, peeled and chopped.
1/3 cup maple syrup
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/3 cup coconut oil
2/3 cup almond flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
Toss the pears with the maple syrup, ginger and cloves in a bowl to let the flavor sink in a little.
In another bowl, combine the dry ingredients.
Add everything else to the bowl with the pears, and then add the dry ingredients. I used a food processor to blend everything nice and smooth, but if you use a fork to break up the pears you should be able to whisk everything else together.
Pour everything into a pan and put it in the oven for about 50 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean when you prick the center.
I sliced up a banana and put it on the top (and it didn't sink!) Mr Idiot didn't like the texture of the banana on top which was totally fine with me, because I got all of it.
Make it, your friends will love it. (Or, if you're lucky, they'll all hate it and you'll get it all.)
