Cinnamon apple butter cups

chopped green apples
Disclaimer: I am 12 days into my sugar detox so these taste awesome to me, but might not be a typical sweet treat for anyone else…

These are perfect after dinner treats that taste slightly sweet from the apples and like a treat because of the coconut oil and butter mixed. If you would like them a little sweeter then maybe use different apples and sprinkle with a little coconut sugar or mix honey into the coconut butter mixture. But these are great as they are to me!

Ingredients:
* 1 1/2 green apples
* 1/4 cup coconut oil
* 1/2 cup coconut butter
* Tbls of cinnamon — or more!

Directions:

1. Put the coconut oil and coconut butter in a bowl and microwave for about 40 seconds. Stir with a spoon so the two are combined.

2. Cut your apples into small chunks (I skinned my apples but not necessary)

3. Add about 1 Tbls of coconut oil to a pan and then add your apples and cinnamon. Cook until they are nice and soft.

4. Add your apples to the coconut mixture and stir around. Add a little more cinnamon.

5. Line a muffin pan with your cupcake liners. Spoon in your mixture. You can put one spoonful in and make about 10 or you can make them nice and full and it will make about 6. Put them in the fridge for about an hour and enjoy!

Paleo Apple Cinnamon Coconut Pudding- sugar detox approved!

Apple_CinnamonOkay, day 2 of Sugar Detox and Whole 30! It always seems so easy in the beginning or even the beginning of the day. 7pm rolls around and I just want to snack or have a sweet something! This supposedly will help with having a treat at the end of the night. So its Sugar Detox approved and Whole 30 approved too.

Ingredients:
* 2 Green Apples- peel off the skin and cut into cubes
* 1 Can Coconut Milk- Not light
* 1/2 tsp of cinnamon
* 2 tbsp coconut oil
* 1 tsp vanilla extract

Put all the ingredients together in a sauce pan and cook on medium, then simmer for about 20 minutes or until the apples become soft.
Pour mixture into food processor or blender until completely mixed together and smooth
Refrigerate a few hours until it becomes more solid and not a liquid texture.

Enjoy! This would also be good with a couple crushed almonds or walnuts on top.

Paleo Almond Meal Banana Cookies

bananaI have no idea how these will come out. I will give my thoughts when they come out of the oven. I am starting to get a sence of what should go into certain things and about how much to make recipes work. Or at least I think I know… we will see after these are done! So this is the first recipe that is all my own! And with that, this means I dont have any true measurements since I just estimated on most of it. If these turn out good then you could also add walnuts, chocoloate chips, sky’s the limit. So if you make these, if they are a little runny, then just add more almond meal or coconut flour.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of Almond Meal
  • 1 egg
  • 2 small banana’s
  • heaping spoon full of almond butter
  • a big spoonful of raw honey
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • a splash of vanilla extract
  • a couple tablespoons of coconut flour
  1. Mix all ingredients together in a food processor. You want the batter to not be runny, more like creamy peanutbutter consistency.
  2. Line your baking sheet with parchment paper and spoon out with a large spoon dollip’s of the mixture
  3. Bake at 350 for 13-15 minutes. Check and make sure they dont burn, I have a habit of burning the crap out of cookies.
  4. Cool and eat!

Okay, I made them and they were a hit! My dad said they tasted like little banana bread disks. So that is its new name. It official guys, I am a chef. I create recipes. Now maybe I can quit my day job and do this full time. Dream on….

Sugar free chocolate banana pancakes

So we are winding down this 21 day sugar detox. I am scraping here to make some treats. This actually sounds better then it was, BUT it is pretty good. For the sugar starved individual like myself. I only haveĀ 3 days left so I am making the best of it! I just eyed all the ingredients so it may be a little off so just play around with it.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 banana (green tipped for those sugar detoxing. Nice and ripe for those not!)
  • 2 tbls of coconut flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp of unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • dash of cinnamon
  • Tbls melted coconut butter

Mix all ingredients together. Mash up the banana nice and fine or you can just throw this all in a mini food processor. Coat your pan with coconut oil so the pancake doesnt stick. Pour in and wait until you see little bubbles at the top. Flip over and cook until finished. Top with organic butter or melted coconut butter. After this SD is over, I am going to add a tablespoon of honey to the batter and top with raspberries and coconut butter. That will be amazing. But these are pretty good. Not very pretty, but pretty good!
