Double Chocolate Chip Coconut Flour Cookies

Double Chocolate Chip Coconut Flour Cookies

I whipped up a batch of double chocolate chip coconut flour cookies for you!  Coconut flour cookies tend to have a bad reputation.  They are too dry and gritty, too soft and pancake like, basically it takes a lot of special tweaking to get a coconut flour cookie to be loved.  Today I’m sharing with…

Grain Free Maple Plantain Cake with Caramel Sauce

Grain Free Maple Plantain Cake

This grain free cake happened by sheer accident.  I was at the grocery store and saw plantains.  Intrigued by them I put them in my shopping cart and continued shopping.  I thought I would make plantain chips out of them but I forgot the plantains on the counter where they ripened before I realized it. …

Lemon Coconut Macaroons

Coconut Macaroons are soooo much fun or is it just me who thinks that way?  I love coconut macaroons and as soon as I found out they were gluten free (most of the time) I loved them even more!  I think of macaroons as the tofu of cookies.  I hope you didn’t just lose your…

Paleo Strawberry Breakfast Cookies

Are you allergic to eggs?  It seems to be a problem that is growing and growing.  I’ve noticed many fans have started to ask for egg free recipes.  I’m guilty of including a ton of eggs in my baked goods recipes, but attempting to make them egg free within Paleo guidelines is quite the challenge. …
