Peanut Butter Bites

Hello Everyone, I hope your day has been well.

Just a quick post here today, with a few simple ingredients. I always enjoy using peanut butter because its my favourite spread and I thought I would try out coconut flour. These peanut butter bites are super smooth and have quite a strong coconut taste but it’s not too bad once you get used to it.

Homemade Apple Cake

Hello Everyone, I hope your day has been well.

So I’m quite new to the world of using coconut flour so this was more of an experiment to see how this recipe would turn out and whether it needed more or less coconut flour. After doing a little research, I know that usually less coconut flour is required when substituting for normal white flour because it is much more heavy and dry in comparison. Once baked though, I feel like the coconut flour gives things a more lighter, airy texture which is okay but I’m certainly more used to a weighted cake. When baking this again, I’d probably use a mixture of ‘normal’ and coconut flour.

55g butter

1/4 tsp cinnamon powder

Icing sugar, for dusting

Method

  • Preheat the oven to gas mark 5 and line a loaf tin with baking paper.
  • Prepare the apple and set aside. Mix the butter and sugar together in a large bowl. Add the egg and vanilla extract.
  • Then add the coconut flour, baking powder and cinnamon until it forms a smooth batter.
  • Gently fold in the apples and pour into the loaf tin.
  • Bake in the oven for 40 minutes until golden brown and fully cooked.
