If you're looking for something that is super easy to bake, what about my Gluten-Free Pecan & Carrot Tray Bake? Cinnamon, ginger and mixed spice add warmth and a more-ish twist to this perenial favourite and the carrots and pecans means it will store well for several days (if you have any left over, which, frankly is highly unlikely)!
