Chocolate Fudge Frosting

9 ounce package of  Lily’s Dark Chocolate Chips, Stevia Sweetened  

4 heaping Tablespoons coconut oil, pure expeller

Melt in double boiler, then, add these and mix with a whisk.  
1 cup Coconut milk, full fat or Dairy cream
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 teaspoons vanilla creme’ stevia
1/2 cup powdered Erythritol or Birch Xylitol
Remove from the heat when smooth.  It is a thinnish liquid… Poor over the cooled cake… Even better over chilled or frozen cake… It sets up within a few minutes and looks like a butter cream frosting.  It is amazing!  We served this over the chocolate cake made with coconut flour at Hannah’s wedding reception and it was quite a hit!

Pecan Waffles

Pecan Waffles

  • 4 eggs or 6 egg whites and two eggs**
  • ½ cup coconut milk
  • 1 or 2 squirts English Toffee SweetLeaf Stevia*
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted or other oil or butter
  • 3 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon coconut flour
  • 1 tablespoon arrowroot powder
  • 1/2 cup pecan meal
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  •  chopped pecans to desired chunkiness (I like 1/2 cup pecan pieces.)

 

**Okay, we discovered that the batter is thinner and the texture better when we use egg whites instead of just whole eggs… Our granddaughter is allergic to egg whites, so we separated the eggs for a cake for her and I needed to do something with the egg whites, so I made waffles and we LOVED the crispier texture.

*If your family is not used to stevia yet, you can put 1 teaspoon to 1 Tablespoon of Birch xylitol  or Erythritol and reduce the stevia to 1 squirt.  I have found that a blend of the two tastes more neutral.  I have come to love stevia myself, but I do a blend when cooking for people not used to it.

Mix in the blender or mixing bowl and cook in the waffle iron.  I put half the pecans in and let them blend thoroughly and then, I put the other half in and only blended a little so there would be pieces of pecans in the waffles.

If you are using pecans already ground into meal, you can use a mixing bowl and a mixer instead of the blender.

I top with fresh fruit for a lower glycemic meal than the typical syrups.

My family loves stevia sweetened strawberries and stevia sweetened whip cream.

Tip to sweeten the strawberries so they will have a sweet syrup, place the stevia in a small amount of water and pour that over the strawberries.  For instance, if you would have put 1 cup of sugar in your large bowl of strawberries, put 1 teaspoon stevia in 1/2 cup water.  Let them stand for about 15 minutes and stir frequently.

Vanilla Cake with Coconut Flour

Andrew's CakeVanilla Cake with Coconut Flour

1 stick butter, melted and cooled slightly

1 cup Xylitol

6 – 8 eggs

2/3 cup coconut flour

1 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons  vanilla

1½ cups coconut milk

1 Tablespoon baking powder

2 Tablespoons Arrowroot Powder

Preheat oven to 350 for metal pan, 325 for a glass pan.

Mix the butter with the xylitol in the mixing bowl, add the eggs and beat well after each egg.   Add 2/3 cup coconut flour and mix well, making sure all the lumps are out.  Add the salt, vanilla and gradually, the coconut milk, mix well and add the baking powder and arrowroot powder and mix well.

Bake in a 9X13 pan for normal thickness and a lasagna pan (10X14) for a slightly thinner cake.  I am sure this would also work in two round pans.

I spray my pans with Spectrum Grapeseed oil to keep it from sticking.

Coconut Milk Smoothie

1/2 – 1 cup coconut milk

1 frozen banana

1/2 – 1 cup frozen blueberries, cherries or blackberries

1/2 dropperful Vanilla Creme Stevia

Put coconut milk and banana in the blender.  Add the Vanilla Creme Stevia.  Add just enough blueberries to make it the thickness and coldness you want for your “ice cream”

Optional additions – raw egg yolk, or whey protein powder

I have had problems with dairy all my life.  So, when the rest of my family are eating my awesome homemade, sugar free ice cream, this gives me an alternative.

To freeze bananas, let bananas sit on the counter until they begin to have brown spots on the peeling.  Peel them and put them in to a freezer bag.  Put immediately into the freezer.  Frozen bananas are great treats in smoothies or alone.  They are very sweet, yet not processed.

Coconut Flour Waffles

Coconut Flour Waffles

6 eggs

1/4 teaspoon stevia

1/4 cup coconut milk

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon vanilla

7 Tablespoons melted butter or coconut oil

4 Tablespoons mashed banana

1/3 cup sifted coconut flour

1/3 cup pecan meal

Mix all the ingredients in a blender  except the coconut flour and pecan meal.  When it is well mixed, add the coconut flour and mix well and then, the pecan meal and mix well.

Bake in a waffle iron until brown.

We serve ours with some kind of fruit.  My favorite is fried apples with cinnamon and stevia, but the last time we had this, we had blackberries warmed on the stove sweetened to taste with xylitol and stevia.  After they got warm, I mashed them with a potato masher so the sweeteners could get inside the pulp.  Then, we topped the whole thing with fresh whipped cream sweetened with Vanilla Creme Stevia.

My husband has NOT cared for my non-grain waffles until this one.  He really liked it and told me to be sure to remember what I did, so we could do it again.

I plan to add blueberries to the batter the next time I make these!
