Coconut Flour Muffins

These are great to add to a dinner dish or even have with breakfast. If they were bigger you could make a little egg mcmuffin with them! Easy, light, and yummy.

  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tbls coconut oil – melted
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tbls coconut flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • Pinch of salt

Preheat oven to 400 and grease muffin tins. Whisk the eggs and melted coconut oil. Sift in the coconut flour and baking powder until blended. Fill in the muffin tins about 1/2 way and this should make between 6-8. Bake for about 15 minutes until barely brown on edges. Pop out and eat!

Kale crisps

Well everyone always talks about how great Kale crisps are so since I order the vegi in a box every couple of weeks (www.tarafarms.com) I usually get kale in it and never really know what to do besides throw it in a salad.

This is really easy. And surprisingly good!

Ingredients:

  • Bunch Of Kale
  • Tablespoon of olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Cut the kale into bite size pieces. Make sure to cut out the spine of the kale because I didn’t and when you chomp into one, bitter!

Place on a cookie sheet, mix with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes until nice and crispy. These were actually really good! Note the pictures I couldn’t get one without my BF hand in it!

Chocolate zucchini ‘bread’

20120627-141126.jpg

So I have a huge chocolate obsession. Love me some chocolate! I try to not eat any but when I must, I reach for extra dark. This bread (more like squares) gives you just a taste of chocolate without feeling too guilty. These are so good but filling so your pretty content with one.

Ingredients

  • 1 small banana
  • 1 cup zucchini grated
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbls honey
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup almond meal
  • Dark chocolate chips or bar cut into small pieces.

Blend up banana, honey, and eggs together in food processor. Add almond meal and other dry ingredients. Add chocolate last and mix all together in processor.

Put in a 9×9 greased pan (coconut oil) and spread evenly.

Bake 30/35 minutes at 350

Cut into squares and enjoy!
