Coconut Flour Pancakes Recipe 2

Yield 4

Ingredients

•5 eggs (free range if possible)

•1 cup of homemade applesauce (readers have verified that store bought (no sugar added!) and fresh raw applesauce also work)

•1/2 cup coconut flour (plus a little more if you need it to thicken)

•1 tsp baking soda

•Cinnamon to taste (optional)

•1/4 cup butter or coconut oil

•1 tsp vanilla (optional)

•favorite add-ins and toppings of choice (we like adding blueberries and topping with butter or homemade cream)

Instructions

1.Heat large skillet or pancake griddle

2.Mix all ingredients except any add-ins with blender, whisk or immersion blender and let sit 5 minutes to thicken.

3.Add berries, bananas, or other add-ins and mix by hand

4.Grease griddle or skillet with coconut oil or butter

5. Use a 1/4 cup measure to spoon pancakes onto cooking surface

6.Cook approximately 2-3 minutes per side until it bubbles and is easy to flip. These do take a little longer than “regular” pancakes, so don’t rush them!

7.Top with butter (it makes everything better!) and enjoy!

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).

In a medium sized bowl, sift together the dry ingredients.

Slowly add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until very smooth.

Grease a small bread pan and fill about ⅔ of the way full with batter. Bake for 40-50 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Coconut Flour Crackers

These coconut flour crackers are not only easy to do but come out incredibly delicious even with the coconut flour ingredient. In fact, you can hardly tell the difference as the taste, crunchiness and texture is the same throughout. The only marked difference would be the fact that this recipe is gluten-free, making it much more healthy for you and the family.

Ingredients:

–      1 organic egg

–      ½ cup coconut flour

–      Pinch of salt

–      2 tablespoon grass-fed butter

–      1 ½ cups shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat oven at 400 degrees F.

Using a high power blender or food processor, blend all ingredients together until they are well combined.

Spread cracker batter over a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Place another piece of parchment paper on top of mixture and use a rolling pin to thinly spread batter. Gently pull off the parchment paper.

Bake crackers for 10 minutes. Take the crackers out of the oven and score them with a knife or pizza cutter.

Return to oven and continue to bake until they are lightly brown and crisp, 5-10 minutes.

Coconut Flour Bread Recipe

 

Author: The Coconut Mama

Serves: 1 loaf

Ingredients

▪6 Organic Eggs, at room temperature

▪½ Cup coconut oil, melted and cooled

▪1 Tablespoon Raw Honey (optional)

▪¾ Cup coconut flour

▪2 Tablespoons arrowroot powder (optional, makes a lighter loaf)

▪½ Teaspoon sea salt

▪1 Teaspoon Grain Free Baking Powder

Instructions

1Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2Use a medium/large bowl, mix eggs, coconut oil and honey (if using).

3Mix until all the wet ingredients are combined.

4Add coconut flour, arrowroot powder, baking powder and salt to the wet mixture and

mix until the batter is lump free.

5Allow the batter to sit for 5 minutes.

6Pour batter into a greased bread pan (I used a medium bread pan, 7⅜” x 3⅝” x 2″).

7Bake bread until the top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean, about 35-40 minutes.

Coconut Flour Flatbread

 

Author: The Coconut Mama

Ingredients

▪1½ Tablespoons coconut flour

▪1 Tablespoon coconut oil, Melted

▪1 Egg

▪⅛ Teaspoon sea salt (Edit: The original recipe called for ¼ teaspoon of salt. After further testing we felt like less salt was needed.)

▪¼ Teaspoon Baking Powder – Here’s how to make homemade grain free baking powder

Instructions

1Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2Mix coconut flour, sea salt, and baking powder together until combined.

3Add egg and melted coconut oil and mix well.

4Let batter sit for a few minutes to allow the flour to absorb the liquid.

5Scoop half the batter on baking pan and use a spatula

to spread batter into a circle the size of a bun.

6Repeat using the rest of the batter. Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown.

*This is bread I eat on a daily basis because it’s so quick to make. I add just a touch of honey to the ingredients. Make certain the batter is very loose as the bread will come out dry otherwise.

I find it easier to make two batches which can make 6 breads. The batter is divided into 6 portions. Then smoothed out into a round shape.

At that point I take a piece of wax paper and put it on top of the portions. Then I use a plastic cutting pad (any flat surface will do) to smooth and flatten the portions prior to putting in the toaster oven at 350º.

For me they come out the size just right for any number of combinations for a sandwich.

fried eggs, bacon, tomato, avocado slices, onion, salsa, you name it.

Gluten-Free Coconut Flour Bread Recipe

Total Time: 60 minutes

Serves: 8–12

Ingredients:

•6 eggs

•1/2 cup coconut milk

•1/4 cup honey

•1 tablespoon vanilla extract

•1/4 cup coconut oil, melted

•3/4 cup coconut flour

•1/2 cup almond flour

•2 teaspoon baking powder

•1 teaspoon sea salt

•3/4 cup applesauce

1.Heat the oven to 350 F.

2.Place all ingredients in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth.

GRAIN-FREE COCONUT ALMOND BREAD (Makes 1 loaf)
Barely adapted from: Nourished and Nurtured

Ingredients:

1) 3/4 cup of desiccated coconut (or slightly more if batter is too liquid)
2) 1 cup of almond meal
3) 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons of butter (140g)
4) 8 eggs
5) 1 tablespoon of mild-flavored honey (optional: if you prefer non-sweet bread, leave the honey out)
6) 1 1/2 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar
7) 3/4 teaspoon of salt
8) 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder

Steps:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 300 deg Fahrenheit (150 deg cel) – Note that the oven temperature has to be this low so that the almond meal and coconut flour does not turn brown so easily.
    2) Heat a saucepan over low heat and melt better. Turn off the heat and allow butter to cool for a couple of minutes.
    3) Stir in the honey (if using) and apple cider vinegar and mix well.
    4) Break the eggs into a large bowl and beat them. Add the salt, baking powder, almond meal, and butter mixture, and
  2. stir well.
    5) Add the coconut flour and stir well with the other ingredients until homogeneous. If necessary, add a bit more coconut flour. (Note that the batter should be easy to pour into the loaf pan. It should not be too thick that you have to scoop it into the pan.)
    6) Pour batter into a well-buttered loaf pan.
    7) Bake for around 50 to 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
    8) Allow bread to cool for 15 to 20 minutes before using a spatula or knife to go around the edges, then removing the bread from the pan.
    9) Once bread has cooled completely, slice into thin pieces and serve with butter and jams or whatever spreads you like.
    10) To store, wrap tightly with plastic wrap and keep in the refrigerator or freezer.

•2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted and cooled

•2 eggs

•1/4 cup coconut flour (I used Trader Joe’s)

•1/2 teaspoon baking soda

•1/4 teaspoon salt

•1/3 cup Republic of Cacao 72% Dark Chocolate Pieces

Nutrition Information

• Serves: 18-20 cookies

Prep time:  10 mins

Cook time:  10 mins

Total time:  20 mins

INSTRUCTIONS

1Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

2In the bowl of a food processor, add in almond butter, coconut sugar and coconut oil; process until it comes together, about 1

minute. Add in eggs and process again. The dough will probably seize up at this point, but don’t worry that’s okay.

3Next, add in coconut flour, baking soda and salt; process again until a dough forms. Gently fold in chocolate chips.

4Use a cookie scoop to drop dough onto prepared cookie sheet. You can flatten dough with the palm of your hand if you’d like to have cookies like mine in the photo, or if you prefer, you can leave the dough as is and cookies will be a bit puffier.

5Bake for 8-10 minutes or until cookies turn slightly golden brown around the edges. Allow them to cool on cookie sheet for at least 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling. Repeat with remaining dough. Makes around 20 cookies

2 T raw honey

4 ounces raw dark chocolate chips

1/2 t vanilla bean powder, optional

Instructions

In a blender, add shredded coconut, coconut oil, raw honey and vanilla bean powder. Blend until mixture is fine and crumbled.

Line a small baking sheet or plate with wax paper. Using a tablespoon-size measuring spoon, scoop mixture and form into small mounds, using your hands. Set onto wax paper. Place in freezer 10 minutes to set.

Coconut Flour Bars

INGREDIENTS

•1/4 cup melted coconut oil

•1/3 cup honey, agave nectar or maple syrup

•2 teaspoons vanilla extract

•2 eggs, slightly beaten

•¼ cup unsweetened almond milk

•1/2 cup coconut flour

•½ teaspoon baking soda

•¼ teaspoon salt

•3 oz Republic of Cacao 72% Dark Chocolate Pieces coarsely chopped

•1/2 cup coconut flakes, optional

INSTRUCTIONS

1Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray 8×8 inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.

2In a large bowl, whisk together coconut oil, honey, vanilla, eggs, and almond milk. In a separate medium bowl whisk together coconut flour, baking soda, and salt. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until just combined and batter is smooth. Fold in chopped chocolate, reserved a few tablespoons for sprinkling on top if desired.

3 Bake for 20-22 minutes or until edges are golden brown and knife comes out with a few crumbs attached. The batter may look like it’s not all the way cooked but it will be.

DO NOT OVERBAKE or it will result in dried out bars and no one likes that! I always bake mine for 20 minutes and don’t have any problems. Cool bars on a wire rack for at least 10 minutes so that they settle a bit, then cut into 16 squares. Enjoy!

NOTES

I like to sprinkle extra dark chocolate chunks on top or melt a little extra chocolate and glaze it over the top of the bars. These are also especially delicious with a sprinkle of sea salt on top.

Coconut flakes are not included in nutritional information, but the chocolate is.

RECIPE NOTES

This soufflé bake can be made earlier to save time. Just assemble up to 30 minutes before baking. Keep it covered with an upside large bowl. Make sure the batter doesn’t touch the bowl. Keep it out at room temperature until ready to bake.

If you are at altitude, your soufflé make take less time to bake.
