  • After flipped, bake for another 5-8 minutes or until golden brown (AIP version may need more time) Remove from the oven and allow to cool Serve with guacamole, cilantro avocado lime sauce , or another dip NOTES *For AIP, sub the 2 eggs for 2 gelatin eggs.
  • Here are the instructions – FIRST, Add 1/2 cup of water to a small sauce pot and slowly pour over 2 tbsp gelatin.
  • You don’t want any clumps, so lightly mix if needed.
  • Allow the mixture to rest and bloom over 2-3 minutes.
  • Place the pot on the stove and turn in on low heat.
  • Slowly melt the the gelatin (this will take just a few minutes) and remove from heat.
