photo by recipe author

Servings: About 8
Preparation Time: 30 minutes

  • 3 large eggs
  • sweetener of choice, to taste
  • Dash of vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup of heavy cream or coconut cream
  • 5 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup of fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1/8 cup - 1/4 cup of milk of choice (If your dough is too dry)

  • 13-15 oz coconut cream or full fat coconut milk, refrigerated overnight

Preheat oven to 300 degrees ºF

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, sweetener, vanilla and cream until well mixed. Sift the coconut flour into the egg mixture and mix until smooth.

Wait for a few minutes until thick. Add the blueberries and milk if needed. Drop 1 tablespoon sized cookies onto cookie sheet. (You can make them bigger if you would like!) Flatten into cookies.

Bake until golden with golden brown edges or until you think they are ready. It took mine about 20 minutes. Let cool enough to handle then transfer to fridge to get firm and cool. 

Using a mixer, beat coconut cream or coconut milk until fluffy and stiff peaks start to form. Chill until firm enough to be sandwiched in cookies.Sandwich 1 tablespoon of filling between 2 cookies. Put in freezer overnight or until you think they are ready to eat. 

*For the freshest coconut milk make homemade coconut milk. (See video at this link.)

photo by recipe author

Servings: 15
Preparation Time: 10 minutes

Preheat oven to 350 degrees ºF.

Place the coconut butter, egg and vanilla in a food processor and combine.

Add in the sweetener, soda and all spices, blend until combined. 

Form dough into 1 inch balls and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Press each cookie down with your palm, these don't spread much

Bake in preheated oven 10-15 minutes or until a bit brown.

These cookies are fragile when warm, so let them cool for a few minutes on the cookie sheet. Remove and let them cool completely on a cooling rack. They will harden up as they cool.

Store in an airtight container.

*To soften the coconut butter, place the jar in a saucepan filled with water over medium heat. Make sure you have removed the top layer of coconut oil, save it for another use.

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.
