    How much honey? And can I substitute honey with something else like sugar or brown sugar? I have no honey but wanted to make these ASAP!

    Do you know of any true paleo options for chocolate chips? The Enjoy Life brand states that it includes brown sugar… I’m new to a paleo lifestyle, so I am not positive, but I thought brown sugar was non-paleo. Is that incorrect?

    • Kelly says:

      Hi Bri, I use the Enjoy Life chips and they use evaporated cane juice to sweeten them. Paleo yes, but only in moderation.

    Is this recipe for only one 8×8 pan? I don’t understand what “indicated number of 8×8 foil baking pans” means. And can I use just regular metal or glass pans instead?
