The Prudent Wife has a recipe for a sugar-free Vanilla Coconut Flour Cookies that really piqued my interest. I have been craving baked goods of all sorts lately(and have been eating them more than I probably should).
This cookie recipe seemed too good to be true; easy, delicious, and I already have the ingredients lying around. Sign me up! You start off blending 6 eggs, 1 cup coconut milk, 1/2 cup melted butter, 1 TB vanilla extract, and some vanilla stevia to taste in a blender. Then add in 1/4 tea salt and 3/4 cup coconut flour. This is when disaster struck! You know how carpenters always say “measure twice, cut once,” well I think there needs to be some kitchen cliché that reminds people to make sure they have enough of everything before making a vanilla-egg-coconut soup. I ended up with 1/2 cup coconut flour left in my bag, so I used that and frantically searched my kitchen for a replacement. After debating for a moment, I chose to start dumping in grated dried coconut. I added about 1 1/8 cups and a tablespoon of coconut butter(because everything is better with coconut butter). I also added in some almond extract and voilà, vanilla almond coconut cookies were born! Which is good, because I would have been really pissed if I had to dump out a whole batch of batter because I was too stupid to make sure I had enough of everything first.
