Recipe by @paleorunningmomma
Preheat your oven to 425° F. Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil, then pace a wire rack over the baking sheet.
Pat wings dry with paper towel to absorb excess water, then place in a large bowl. Sprinkle all over with the arrowroot (optional), salt and pepper - toss to evenly coat.
Arrange wings on wire rack and place in the middle rack of the preheated oven and bake at 425° F for 30 mins.
Meanwhile, make the sauce. Whisk together the honey or date paste with the ghee or oil, spices, salt, lime zest and juice.
After 30 minutes, brush the wings with the sauce, leaving a little for after they bake, if desired.
Continue to bake for 10-12 more minutes, remove from oven and brush with any extra sauce. Garnish with cilantro and serve with Paleo ranch dressing (such as Tessemae's) or other dips of your choice if desired. Enjoy!
