…this one is floating out there on the web in quite a few places but it is my favorite. It reminds me of pound cake without all the carbs and sugar. I did add 1 TB of carob powder to it recently and that made it even better. I’ve been doing the very best I can to follow an anti candida diet for a while now so I’m doing carob instead of cocoa. I also added the carob to my pumpkin shake and to what I call “oreo cereal”…an adaptation of one of Ricki Heller’s recipes…I’ll have to tell you about that one later.
In the last week or so I’ve decided to try egg free for at least a little while to see if it might clear up the redness on my face. I am gluten free since Jan of 2011 and dairy free since Fall 2011. The dairy free really helped clear up my cystic acne but my face is still quite red and blotchy. Before going egg free, I ate TONS of eggs so even if I don’t stay egg free permanently, I think taking a break might help. I think egg free is almost harder than dairy free because it is hard to use coconut flour without eggs. I’ve used chia seeds in a couple recipes and in 1 of the recipes, chia worked “ok” but in the other one it was not good. So, I’ll have to keep experimenting. But oh how I miss my coconut bread. That was my “go to” snack food when I was hungry. I kept a loaf on the counter and just grabbed a slice.
Oh well…we’ll see how the egg free thing goes? : )
Here’s the recipe:
1/2 cup butter…I use melted coconut oil…warm your eggs so the coconut oil won’t harden – I’ve also used melted grass fed beef fat
2 TB xylitol
1/2 tsp sea salt
3/4 cup coconut flour
1tsp baking soda
1/2 cup water
1TB carob powder, optional
Beat eggs and then add other ingredients. Pour into a loaf pan and bake on 350 until knife comes out clean. I bake it in my toaster oven to save energy and to keep the kitchen cool in the summer.
I’m sorry I don’t have any photos. : (
