Okay, you purist's this is not really Paleo because we use raw sugar instead of honey, or fruit to sweeten this, but it is gluten and casein free and we make it grain free - so change it if you want or whatever- we like it :)

This is my daughter Maxine's recipe- she has perfected it till its decadent and "Freakin' Awesome"!

We like it best with just almond meal because its gooey and fudgey, if that's too gooey for you replace some of the almond meal with coconut flour till it's just how you like it. If you prefer crispier edges use all coconut flour.
