  • Preheat oven to 350 °F. Grease pans (coconut oil works great!). See below for pan selection information.
  • Mix dry ingredients well -- a whisk works well.
  • Add wets to dries and combine well. If using eggs, make sure there aren't obvious strings of egg in the batter.
  • Let batter set for 2 to 3 minutes to thicken up some (leave it too long and it gets past the point where it's easy to spread.)
  • Spoon batter into pan and spread out.
  • Bake for about 20 minutes, until it springs back when you touch the top and/or is visibly browned.
  • Cool and cut into whatever size slices you want.


  • Sweeteners: Use whatever sweetener you like. Stevia extract will work as well. If using stevia, use 1/32 teaspoon.  Organic sucanat or organic coconut sugar are good options if you don't need low-carb or are AIP.
  • Egg Alternatives: You can use an egg substitute like Ener-G Egg Replacer or my Homemade Powdered Egg Replacer. For a low-carb egg substitute use a flax egg, chia egg, or gelatin egg.
  • All five eggs might be a too many for someone who doesn't like eggs. You can try using 3-4 and substituting an egg alternative for the remaining eggs.
  • Flax Meal Info: If grinding your own flax meal, which I recommend, 4 cups of flax seeds yield about 6 - 6 1/2 cups flax meal.  If you have extra after grinding, store it in the fridge or freezer for adding to smoothies, etc.
  • Paleo: Use this homemade baking powder (or another appropriate version).
  • Whole30: Use my homemade baking powder, or another appropriate alternative, and omit the sweetener to make this recipe friendly for Whole30.
  • Pan sizes and conversion info: One recipe will fit well in a 10x15 pan. To use 2 9x13 pans, make 1 1/2 recipes.
    3 recipes covers 2 large circular baking stones.
    If you really want to bake in bulk, make 4 1/2 recipes for 2 large size pizza stones and 2 9x13 pans.
