photo-13I have been experimenting with coconut flour as a gluten free alternative. Coconut is low in carbohydrates and is loaded with fibre, so it is ideal for low-carb diets. It takes a little getting used to as it absorbs so much moisture. When substituting whole wheat flour for coconut flour you only need about 1/4 of the amount. These pecan muffins are sugar free, dairy free and gluten free. They are especially good warm with butter (if tolerated).




3 eggs

1/4 cup coconut milk

3/4 teaspoon powdered stevia

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 cup chopped pecans

sprinkle of cinnamon


Blend together the eggs, coconut milk and vanilla.

Combine coconut flour with baking powder, baking soda, stevia and and salt.

Whisk wet ingredients with dry thoroughly.

Fill patty cases with mixture.

Top with pecans and sprinkle cinnamon on each one.

Bake at 180ÂșC for 15 minutes.

Makes 6 muffins.
