Gluten Free Coconut Banana Pancakes Recipe photo
Chicken Fried Rice
photo by recipe author

Servings: 12
Preparation Time: 1 hour

  • 2 pounds chicken breasts
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • 2 cups diced onion (or 2 small/ 1 large onion)
  • Himalayan Salt, to taste
  • 3 cups dried rice, pre-cooked according to package directions
  • 12-16 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 8 free range eggs
  • 1-2 tablespoons organic fermented soy sauce – to taste
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • Freshly grated ginger (to taste)
  • 40 oz frozen mixed vegetables of choice
  • Black Pepper, to taste
  • Chopped green onions (optional)
  • Drained baby corn (optional)
  • Black or white sesame seeds, to taste (optional)

1. Cut up your chicken into small cubes (½ to 1 inch pieces). 

2. In an 8 quart enamel cast iron pot (or wok), add your coconut oil, onions and chicken. Sprinkle with a layer of salt. Cook on medium-high heat until the chicken is thoroughly cooked. Add the garlic and ginger as the chicken is cooking. Note: If your onions are fresh (not frozen), then cook those down for about 4 minutes first, then add chicken. 

3. Add frozen vegetables. Sprinkle a little salt over the surface again. Cook on medium-high heat until the vegetables are warmed through, about 10 minutes, sometimes covering the pot with its lid. While the veggies are cooking, crack all of your eggs into a bowl.

4. Push the pot contents to one side as best you can. Add the eggs to the emptier side and let them cook, scraping the cooked portions from the bottom. Season with a little salt and pepper as they cook. They will likely take about 5-10 minutes to completely cook. Once the eggs cook completely, incorporate them into the chicken and veggies.

5. Add your cooked rice, soy sauce and sesame oil. Stir to completely combine. Done!

6. Portion out your servings and top with chopped green onions and sesame seeds, if desired. Left-overs reheat beautifully on the stovetop. Just add a little water to the bottom of the pan.

Quick tips:

Recipe can easily be cut in ½ or quartered for desired servings.

You can omit chicken breasts on nights when you 1. don't have any or 2. need a quicker meal.

I buy my organic onions in bulk. I dice many pounds all at once in a month and freeze them for quick access and faster cooking times.

Coconut Butter Focaccia Recipe photo
Coconut Butter Focaccia
photo by recipe author

Servings: 6-8
Preparation Time: 10 minutes

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees ºF.

Place the warmed coconut butter into your blender along with the eggs, olive oil, salt, and garlic. Blend until the mixture is fairly smooth--it will be thick. The coconut butter solidifies if it comes into contact with cold, so make sure your eggs are at room temperature.

Cut a piece of parchment paper to fit a cookie sheet. Place the parchment on the cookie sheet and then lightly butter or oil the parchment paper. Spread the batter into a rectangle that is about 10 by 12 inches, of a fairly even thickness. Sprinkle the rosemary and other toppings over the batter.

Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the edges of the focaccia are lightly browned. Remove and cool for a few minutes before cutting into squares to serve.

Gluten Free Tropical BBQ Pizza Recipe photo
Gluten Free Tropical BBQ Pizza
photo by recipe author

Servings: 8
Preparation Time: 20 minutes

Almond Flour Pizza Crust with Coconut Oil: 

Our Tropical Toppings:

  • 1/2 cup BBQ sauce (I used a sweet & spicy Chipotle BBQ) – divided portions
  • 1 1/2 cups diced roasted chicken
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella
  • 8 ounces chopped pineapple
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/2 purple onion – finely diced or sliced
  • Handful of chopped cilantro, stems removed  

Mix crust ingredients together to form a dough. Will look just a bit sticky at this point. That is expected. Just let it rest in the bowl for 10 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees ºF.

Tear off two pieces of parchment paper just larger than your pizza pan or stone. Cut one piece to the round shape and size of the pan or stone and make that the bottom piece. Place dough between the two pieces of parchment paper and roll it until desired thickness. You might find it more of a pressing out with the rolling pin rather than rolling, but just roll it out to the size of the bottom parchment piece. I made mine in a 15? round pan which produces a thin crust that is plenty sturdy to handle lots of toppings.

Remove the top paper and discard. Trim the edges into a nice round crust, like you might a pie crust edge then transfer the crust, leaving it on the bottom paper, to a pizza pan.

Bake for 10-15 minutes until middle is firm, just barely beginning to hint at browning, before the crust is too crispy because it will cook more after topping added. Don't overcook at this point. 

Take out of the oven and top with your desired pizza toppings. We used these:

Add a very thin layer of your BBQ sauce, using a spatula makes this easier to spread and get it evenly to the crust edge. Then add the cheese – ours is 2 cups of good quality mozzarella. Next, mix the remaining BBQ sauce with your deboned and cubed roasted chicken. Then cover the top evenly with the BBQ chicken. Sprinkle with the shredded coconut, the drained pineapple bits, and the finely diced purple onion.

Put the pizza back in the oven for about 10-15 minutes – until hot and the cheese is beginning to brown and bubbling.

Top the cooked pizza with the fresh chopped cilantro and serve!
