I’ve recently found that you can make an amazing cookie out of nut butters. Gluten free, low carb and tasty! What more can you want! As long as you don’t use that nasty sugar ingredient but a far more healthier alternative! These as just so easy to make too as long as you have a food processor. No stirring or beating, just press the buttons and voila! Tasty soft and delicious cookies for all! These are great the next day after storing in the fridge too.
One of my many favourite flavour combination is coconut and lime. I fancied something sweet one afternoon so thought I’d whip up a batch of cupcakes with coconut and lime. Light, delicious and hit the spot. I purposely have not included my topping recipe as you may want to use your own or change it. If you do want it, let me know and I’ll adjust the recipe. It’s easy enough to mix some butter, cream cheese with coconut milk and sometimes cupcake toppings are a very personal choice!
This recipe is my favourite cupcake recipe with coconut flour. It’s fun to adapt it with other flavours. Use and enjoy!
These are just delicious and so easy to make too. I tried this with both savoury and sweet fillings and both were delicious. The Chief Taster was not about so I got to eat them all to myself too which was an added bonus! I made some savoury ones, stuffed with spinach and cheese but ate them all before I could photograph them so you will have to use your imagination! If you are using a savoury filling I reccomend that you omit the vanilla from the mixture (and perhaps the sweetner). Low carb goodness in crepe form! Lovely!
I am playing around with a lot of cabbage recipes at the moment, simply because it’s cheap, low in carbs and we love the vegetable. We normally have cabbage in some form of cheese dish but I wanted something else without the dairy. This is a great alternative to coleslaw and is full of flavour. Just like coleslaw it improves with some chilling time. You could play around with the spices too if you wanted it hotter. I loved it and scoffed a bowl of it under the guise of “taste testing”. Another simple and tasty dish! So simple to make the Chief Taster could possibly whip up a batch!
To make coconut butter is as simple as making a nut butter. Simply throw some raw dried shredded coconut into the food processor and blitz until you have a butter spread. Or you can simply purchase a jar of it! Coconut is one of my favourite superfoods as it has a low glycemic index, a high fibre content and contains lauric acid which has antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal properties. It also improves nutrient absorption! Yummy, tell me more Diva…
As well as looking colourful this soup is full of flavour. I like the flavour combination of beetroot and ginger in a juice, but in a soup with coconut milk this is just delicious. As well as being colourful in flavour, a bowl packs many nutritional benefits. Beet roots contain valuable nutrients that may help lower your blood pressure, fight cancer and inflammation, boost your stamina, and support detoxification. Ginger is one of the foods that can give you a health punch, because it is so full of healthy benefits for your body. Ginger helps regulate cholesterol, helps improve the immune system, acts as an anti-inflammatory agent and has a beneficial effect on your overall digestive system, helping to regulate and aid the movement of food through your stomach, and small and large intestines. Coconut milk is high in is rich in antioxidants and lauric acid.
This recipe has been on the Low Carb boards for ages so I thought I would give it a try. However, it calls for popcorn seasoning which I do not use (nor would I know where to buy it or would I want to). I mixed up my own flavourings. You could vary the spices to your own taste. These are a very low carb version of “Cheetos” but with a home made flavouring. Since the cheese needs to be frozen, I normally do this overnight, but it will probably take a few hours depending upon your freezer.
As this mixture is piped, you can play around with the shapes if you are feeling creative. Your own intials for some fun would be cool!! Or heart shapes for your own Chief Taster! Perhaps play around with the shapes for Halloween?
