What size pan do you use?


We’ve been living keto for 5-6 years now to manage my husband’s diabetes- T2 and my celiac. We use your sweeteners and especially like the golden, the newer brown, and the baking sweetener ! I appreciate and enjoy the recipes you share but wonder if you could make them easily printable ? I’m old school and MUCH prefer to work from a printed recipe !
Thank you !
