    Check out Elana's Pantry - lots of gluten-free recipes. Just sub the agave nectar w/ some Primal sweetener.

    Thanks maba, so a wet sweetener replacement like honey. But don't use stevia to sub, right? Do you know what maple flakes are? I've never seen it before. Is this something I could find at Whole Foods?

    Gigi, I haven't tried any of her recipes yet, so don't know for sure. lil_earthmomma can help, she bakes with maple syrup and honey. I guess stevia can be used too but the liquid-solid ratio conversion must be taken into account. I didn't know what maple flakes looked like until yesterday when I saw them in the baking aisle of my co-op. It looked like dehydrated maple syrup, am not entirely sure though. I would imagine that it's available at WF.

    There's also z-sweet erythritol. It works well for baking. It's granular like sugar.

    Coconut Macaroons. Just whip up some egg whites, add a bit of sweetener (or not) and fold in coconut flakes. Bake for about 7-9 minutes. Super easy and delicious.

    I've done a lot of modifications on elana's pantry recipes, and have found that adding in mashed pumpkin or sweet potato in place of some of the liquid sweetner, then using some stevia as well (w/ maybe 1/4 of the liquid sweetner--I use honey) has worked for me...It's kind of a trial and error process though.


    http://healthyindulgences.blogspot.com/ is another awesome blog for some primal friendly dessert recipes--modifications can also be made, and she often uses stevia and erythritol.

    I'm planning on doing a christmas baking series starting next week on my blog!!!


    I bake with honey and maple syrup, and I'm almost always able to cut down the amount considerably!

    The more I see the less I know for sure.

    To everyone that bakes some Christmas cookies, be sure to send me some, I can help you determine if they taste good - I'm quite good at it.
