Recipe – Paleo – Coconut Muffins

I made these with the kids of the family I’m visiting in Australia. They are a large family so we made 6 times this batch for a total of 36 muffins! I’m eating a warm muffin now, as I write this post… Mmmm!

COCONUT MUFFINS
Makes 6 muffins

Ingredients
3 Eggs
2 TBS butter (melted) **learned a neat trick from the kids today… Put your butter in a bowl, then place it in a bowl of hot water and let it melt… Prevents browning!!)
1/3 c sugar (I used organic rapadura)
1/4 tsp salt (I used organic sea salt)
1/4 c coconut flour (not meal! Must be flour)
1/4 tsp baking powder
3 TBS grated coconut

Blend together eggs, butter, sugar and salt.
Combine the coconut flour and baking powder and then whisk into wet ingredients, ensuring no lumps.
Fill muffin tins halfway with the batter.
Sprinkle the grated coconut on top.
Bake at 400F for 15 minutes.
Enjoy!

Recipe – Paleo – Coconut Flaxseed Bread Tweaked

So I tweaked this recipe to make it even better. Well, actually, at first because I didn’t have enough of the original ingredients AND I had coconut milk that I wanted to use this week, since I’m moving back to the States on Thursday (WOO HOO!!!). Tatiana came to dinner and had the first batch and said this was, “MUCH BETTER!”… Sweeter and moister. So here goes:

COCONUT FLAXSEED BREAD – IMPROVED

COCONUT FLAXSEED BREAD
Serves: 8
1 serving = 1 slice

Ingredients:
3 Tbs coconut creme powder or coconut flour
12 Tbs flaxseed, ground
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
6 pkts of Splenda (or 6 tsp of your favorite sweetner)
5 eggs
1/4 c coconut oil
1/8 c coconut milk
1 tsp apple cider vinegar (not quite sure that’s what I used, lol… this is China, had to guess at it in the little store)

Preheat the oven (in my case the toaster oven) to 350 F.
Grease up a loaf pan with coconut oil.
Mix the dry stuff together, Mix the wet stuff together, Mix the dry and wet together 🙂
Pour into the pan.
Bake for 40 minutes.
Loaf is done when you stick in a chop stick (hey! I live in China!) comes out clean!
Enjoy!

This loaf came out browner, sweeter and moister than the last loaf.
