Cinnamon Raisin Coconut Flour Scones

18 Oct

As the weather begins to change and things begin to get cooler, my palette craves warm comfort food. There is something about the cool weather and soft sweet smelling baked good that seems to warm me up! Combine this with the fact that I love baking and it equals the perfect recipe. However there is one giant footnote, gluten makes me feels ill. The enjoyment baked offer just doesn’t seem worth it compared to how they actually make me feel. In have for the past months been experimenting with some of my favorite recipes but instead of regular flour I have been using coconut flour. So now to compliment my coffee and the chilly fall mornings I can have a cinnamon raisin coconut flour scones. Yummy in my tummy and I know for a fact that my tummy will indeed love it!

Cinnamon Raisin Coconut Flour Scones

Ingredients
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tbs raw honey
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup coconut oil (melted)
3/4 cup of sifted coconut flour
1 cup of raisin ( add more to your liking)
6 eggs room temperature.

Instructions
1. Preheat oven to 350 F
2. Grease pan with coconut oil
3. In small bowl, mix wet ingredients honey, oil, vanilla and eggs with a whisk
3. Mix all the dry in ingredient in a large bowl, cinnamon, baking powder and sifted flour
4. Combine wet and dry ingredients with a spatula till well blended ( dough should be sticking together not stiff)*
5. Place fist size portion of mixed ingredients on greased pan.
6. Bake for 25-30 minutes

* If your dough is stiff add 1-2 TBS of water as needed.

Coconut flour has a very different texture then regular wheat flour. However if you have gluten issues it is a great choice a nice way to be nice to your belly! I also like to use raw honey or maple syrup in my baking recipes to stick to natural sources of sweetness, that are full of vitamins and mineral ….. try my cinnamon raisin coconut flour and
Enjoy!

Yummy In Your Tummy Coconut Flour Blueberry Muffins

7 Jul

The great muffin debate. This is what I used to call the enthused argument my friend Teo and I would have about muffins. Are muffins, cupcakes in a ‘healthy’ disguise? Can a muffin be a healthy treat? For the most part I would say that muffins are not as healthy as they seem, unless you are making your own at home. By baking your own muffins you can see how much sugar actually really goes into what you are making. I can guarantee you would be surprised how much sugar goes into a classic muffin recipe. Needless to say I do believe that muffins can be healthy treats…

Blueberry ( Coconut Flour ) Muffins

For this recipe you will need
Ingredients

6 eggs ( at room temperature)
3/4 cups and 2 TSP of Coconut Flour
2x(1/4) cups of Melted Butter or Melted Coconut Oil
1/2 a TSP of Salt ( to taste)
2x(1/4) cups of Raw Honey ( sweeten to your taste)
1 TSP of Baking Powder
8 TSP of Water
1 cup of Blueberries

Directions
1.Preheat oven at 375 Celsius and grease muffin tin (makes 12 muffins)
2. Combine all the dry sifted ingredients (baking powder, salt and coconut flour) into a medium to small bowl.
3. In a larger bowl mix all the wet ingredients (honey, eggs, butter)
4. Gently combine the dry ingredients in a whisk like motion until they are all mixed
5. Add water into mixture a teaspoon at a time until well mixed, mixture should be slightly glue-y
6. Add blueberries.
7. Baking time, 15-20 minutes or until you insert a toothpick and it comes out clean,tops should be golden.

What is great about these muffins is that every ingredients is accounted for. The honey which can be diminished-with apple sauce- is full of minerals and amino acids. So, although these muffins are sweet they are by no means related to cupcakes. The coconut flour is gluten free and filling and the blueberries are great antioxidants. Try them out… I guarantee this is the healthiest ‘yummy in your tummy treat’ you have had lately!

So until next time, enjoy the muffins treats!
