I have been collecting my favorite coconut flour recipes to share. I know coconut is not local to the mid-Atlantic region, but I needed to eat a gluten-free diet after the Lyme disease.
I discovered paleo baking, which is mainly grain-free, uses a lot of coconut flour and eggs to mimic the texture of breads and cakes.
I also became very dependent on these recipes for feeding my child because we followed the Weston A. Price Foundation's guidelines for waiting to introduce grains until after the molars appear.
How do you make a grain-free birthday cake?
How do you make gingerbread cookies?
Can you make quiche without wheat?
Relax, you can still have your favorite foods, just a little different, maybe even better.
I'll tell you what we did!
If you have a favorite recipe you would like to share, please comment below!
Update: As of late 2016, we're no longer eating eggs! I know it sounds awful, and it was an adjustment, but it's not so bad now that we're used to it. Adding some info about egg-free eating is on my website to do list.
So I can't use any of these recipes anymore since they depend on eggs. So sad! I will leave them here and hope you can enjoy them.
I know there are ways to substitute eggs using gelatin or applesauce, and I have done that with other recipes, but the recipes listed here are highly dependent on the eggs, so I'm not sure those methods would work here.
If you come up with something, please let me know, and stay tuned for an update about our new diet.
