As a busy wife, small business owner, and mother of 4 small children, I develop weekly menus to help keep myself on track. I started this blog as a way to share these menus (and some of my favorite recipes) with other busy cooks. Since my first post it has evolved into a discussion of not only food but other aspects of life. Check out my tips, recipes, and, of course, my weekly menus. I hope they are a help as you manage your own home (and life).
With so many of my favorite (non-familial) people being gluten free, I've been looking for some new recipes to have on hand in case of company. I am a big fan of coconut, which made my choice of flour an easy decision. I've done a little experimenting with coconut flour and it is a very absorbent flour. You need to bring a ton of "moisturizers" to the party or the coconut makes it really dry. I did some peeking around and found a cookie recipe that sounded interesting so I decided to give it a try. I did make a few adjustments since I just can't leave well enough alone. :)
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/4 cup coconut flakes
2 tablespoons of raw honey
6 tablespoons of coconut oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
a pinch of kosher salt
There's not a lot that you have to do with these cookies. Preheat the oven to 365 degrees. Toss all the ingredients into your food processor or use a pastry blender to combine. Then roll 'em into little balls. Place 'em on parchment paper covered baking sheets. Criss-cross with a fork. And, of course, bake for 8-9 minutes. They burn easily so watch them like a hawk!
