Our result was pretty yummy! Bekah LOVES them and eats 8 or 9 per day (I made mini-muffins so that’s not as much as it sounds like). Here it is:
6 eggs, pastured and at room temperature
1/4 c. coconut oil
1/4 c. coconut milk
1/4 c. raw honey
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c. coconut flour
1/4 c. raw cacao powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
Cream together honey and coconut oil. Blend in coconut milk, then eggs (if eggs are cold, you will get lumps of coconut oil mix throughout your batter). Add vanilla and salt, stir. Add cacao and stir in, then add coconut flour and baking soda and mix thoroughly (some suggest mixing the dry ingredients separately, but I’m too lazy).
Bake at 400 for 15 min. Or, 10 minutes for mini-muffins. This will make one dozen regular muffins, and 3 dozen or so mini muffins.
These are super nutrient dense, too, without being too sweet and totally grain-free! Coconut is great for you, and so is raw cacao.
Okay, most of you will NEVER try this. But Bekah loves this. It is “candy” she can have.
2 oz. unsweetened chocolate (99% pure cacao)
3/4 c. coconut oil
1 vanilla bean, scraped out
1/2 c. unsweetened coconut flakes (opt.)
1 tsp. mint extract (opt.)
In a medium saucepan, melt chocolate and coconut oil over low heat. Add the caviar (the part you scraped out) from the vanilla bean. Stir until smooth and mixed. Add coconut flakes and/or mint extract if desired. Pour into a small pan (8×8 or smaller) and freeze for 20 – 30 minutes or until hard. Store, covered, in the fridge.
This is completely unsweetened candy. Super nutrient-dense, super rich. Most of us couldn’t stomach it because it is really bitter. But for those who don’t have much of a sweet tooth, this is pretty good. You could also add 2 – 3 tbsp. raw honey if you’d like a lightly sweet candy. But it is smooth, rich, and very interesting unsweetened.
