in the kitchen

coconut butter

I was able to cross off a few food projects that I’ve had on my list today.

First up, coconut butter.  I’ve been reading about the benefits of coconut and had really wanted to try some coconut butter, but when I went to Whole Foods, the 16 oz jar was around $12 and I started having second thoughts. Then I remembered reading about making your own and a quick search on my phone reveled as easy solution. So, I left with a 7 oz. bag of organic coconut flakes (full fat) for $3.50.  When I got home, I dumped the entire contents into my food processor and whizzed it all up. After many minutes (about 5), it seemed pretty dry and crumbly, so I added a spoon of coconut oil and a few minutes later, I had creamy coconut butter. Yay!! You can read about all the benefits and ways to use here, here, or here.

life changing bread

Next on my list was Life Changing Bread. I’ve been wanting to make this since it was posted over a year ago. It did not disappoint. If you love crunchy and nutty then you must try this out!

It is especially good toasted with avocado and a sprinkle of nutritional yeast, salt and pepper. So delicious.

No photos, but I also made Fudge Babies, but I added some peanut butter, sunflower seeds and coconut flakes to the mix, so they were renamed, “Brownie Babies” by the kids. Super good and they make the perfect after school snack.

Of course, Freya was in the center of the kitchen the entire time. Never leaves my side, that girl.
