Coconut Flour Recipes

I've been eyeing the goodies over at Elana's Pantry for months and finally purchased some coconut flour. The following is one of Elana's recipes will McKeeby modifications. I am a lover of coconut flour now. These are light, with a mild coconut flour, and DELICIOUS!

Blueberry Muffins with pecan crumbles
Makes about 5 muffins
¼ cup coconut flour
¼ teaspoon baking soda
¼ cup grapeseed oil
3 eggs
3 T brown sugar
½ cup blueberries (frozen or fresh will work, if frozen, do not thaw)
2 T crushed pecans
  1. In a medium bowl, combine coconut flour and baking soda
  2. In a large bowl, combine grapeseed oil, sugar, and eggs
  3. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet and fold in the blueberries
  4. Grease a muffin tin with oil
  5. Sprinkle pecans over muffins (and additional brown sugar, if desired)
  6. Bake at 350° for about 20 minutes

Fellow gluten free blogger,

I'm staring a carnival blog as a one-stop shopping place for gluten free information. A blog carnival is like a magazine of articles that gets published on a schedule. Every 3 months (I hope it catches on so that we can do this more often – at least monthly), bloggers submit an article related to the GF lifestyle from their blog. The submission will be combined with all others onto 1 carnival page, which will include links to each participant’s article on their own blog (so you retain the rights to the post, and your trademarks stay intact). We can all take turns being the host blogger (if you are interested in hosting, let me know!). We hope that we can all learn from each other and introduce our readers to other gluten free sites out there.
If you’d like to see a sample carnival, check out http://allergickid.blogspot.com/2009/06/living-with-food-allergies-blog.html.

Joining the community of contributors is a great way to get more readers to your blog. It's easy to do. Just follow the below link and fill in the quick form linking one of your best blog posts to the carnival page. Topic areas will include recipes, tips, research, advice/support, etc. Your post will be posted along with contributions from other GF bloggers.

The deadline for the next carnival is July 25, 2009. Be sure to let your readers know about the first carnival. It'll be posted on August 1st at http://thefoodallergycoach.blogspot.com/.
