Sunday Baking- Sitting at home isn’t easy for me during a regular day, so sitting at home waiting for the electrical messages sent through my nervous system to find their way again borders on painful. You can only watch so much bad T.V. and my mind is wandering too much for reading. With limited options, I decided to do some baking. As adherents to the ‘Paleo’ style of eating know, baking without grains is interesting.

On today’s menu were coconut flour bread and banana chocolate chip muffins. The fruits of my labor are picture above along with a bowl of organic tomato soup. Here are the recipes:

Coconut Flour Bread

Ingredients

12 eggs
2 tablespoons honey
1 coconut oil
1 1/2 cups coconut flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 cup of blended butternut squash or butternut squash soup

Directions

Step 1
Preheat the oven to 350F. Grease a small bread pan.

Step 2
Blend together eggs, honey, and coconut oil

Step 3
Combine coconut flour with baking soda and mix with liquid ingredients until there are no lumps.

Step 4
Pour into greased loaf pan and bake for 80 minutes (check at 50 minutes)

Step 5
Remove from pan and cool on rack. Fully cool before slicing.

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

DRY MIXTURE –

2 cups coconut flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 bar of 70% (or better) dark chocolate; crumbled

MOIST MIXTURE

1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup apple sauce
1 cup blended butternut squash or butternut squash soup
3/4 cup honey
4 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 ripe bananas

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C) and prepare 12 muffin cups. In a large bowl, mix together the first 3 ingredients of the dry mixture. Stir in chocolate chips.
Cream together coconut oil, honey, squash, and applesauce with an electric mixer. Beat in eggs one at a time. Mash the bananas and add bananas and vanilla to the moist mixture. Add the moist mixture to the dry mixture all at once. Stir until the batter is moist but still lumpy. Fill 12 muffin cups 3/4 full of batter. Bake 35 minutes.

You’ll probably end up playing around with the ingredients and methodology as these recipes are very much works in progress.

Enjoy!

Until next time,

  1. Just made the Banana Chocolate Chip muffins. I used brown rice flour instead of coconut as that’s what I had. Amazed how easy, and they are moist and delicious! Thanks for sharing!

    • I’m glad you enjoyed them. Recipe is adapted from one of my Mom’s. Still working on it. If you aren’t using coconut flour, you can halve the amount of eggs.

Please leave a comment! Even if you disagree!
