Found these two recipes i think they they look fab, has anyone tried these? any advice on doing them? am i missing anything...!

Coconut Bread

¾ cup sifted Coconut Flour
½ cup Virgin Coconut Oil or butter, melted
6 eggs
2 tablespoons honey
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder

Method

Blend together eggs, butter, honey and salt. Combine coconut flour with baking powder and whisk thoroughly into batter until there are no lumps. Pour into greased 9x5x3 inch or smaller loaf pan and bake at 175C (350F) for 40 minutes. Remove from pan and cool on rack.


Ingredients

½ cup sifted coconut flour
½ cup almond flour *
2 eggs
¼ cup butter, melted
¼ teaspoon salt
3 cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded

Method

Blend together almond flour, eggs, butter, salt and cheese. Add coconut flour and kneed the dough in your hands for 2 to 3 minutes. Form dough into 1 inch balls, place on an un greased cookie sheet and flatten to a diameter of about 2 to 2½ inches. Bake at 205 Degree C (400F) for 15 minutes. These crackers taste best straight from oven and slightly crisp. Leftover crackers can be reheated at 205 Degree C (400F) for about 4 minutes. Makes about 16 crackers.

Almond flour can be replaced with nut meal if desired. To make nut meal grind raw nuts in a food processor. You may use almonds, pecans, walnuts or any nut of your choice.

From Jan2242:

Pizza Base

If cooked for less this is ideal as a flat cheese scone.

Makes 2-4 servings

2 cups whole milk organic mozzarella cheese, shredded
2 large organic eggs
2 tablespoons flax meal
2 tablespoons coconut flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
Preparation:

Preheat oven to 180c. Cut 2 pieces of parchment paper out for baking sheet.

Mix cheese, eggs, flax, coconut flour, and baking powder together until a sticky wet dough is formed. Spread with a spatula to ¼ inch thickness on a baking sheet lined with one piece of parchment paper.

Bake for 30 minutes in preheated oven. Halfway through the baking process, flip crust over by sliding it off the baking sheet with the parchment paper, placing the second piece on the sheet, and turning the crust over unto the new sheet and peeling the old paper off. Return to oven until done baking.

Remove from oven, slide off of parchment paper, and flip over again for cooling. Once crust is cooled, top with sauce, pre-cooked veggies or meats, and cheese. Set crust with toppings under the broiler on high for a minute or two until cheese is melted and bubbly. Slice and serve.

Note - I didn't use any sugar substitute as I find the coconut flour sweet enough, especially with low carb jam and cream. :twisted:

Per Scone - 4g Carb

From Max:

Dark Chocolate Mini Cake

2 tablespoons melted salted butter
1 large egg
1/4 cup cream
2 tablespoons powdered erythritol
2 tablespoons Cocoa Powder
2 Pillow packs of Purevia (stevia blend)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup almond meal
2 tablespoons coconut flour

Chocolate Icing/Glaze

1 tablespoon melted salted butter
1 tablespoon Cocoa Powder
1 tablespoon powdered erythritol
1 Pillow pack of Purevia (stevia blend)
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1/16 teaspoon salt

Grease a small (2-cup or so) microwavable bowl or dish. Set aside.

In a small bowl, whisk together cake ingredients in the order given until well blended. Pour into prepared dish and microwave on high for 3 1/2 minutes. Let sit for 5 minutes to finish cooking.

Meanwhile, mix icing ingredients well. Carefully remove cake upside-down onto a small plate or saucer. Ice with chocolate icing/glaze (it will melt)

You can also bake the cake in a regular oven for 30 minutes at 180c then let it sit at least 5 minutes and ice in the baking dish. This makes the texture moist throughout the cake.

The cake has about 9 net carbs and the icing has about 2.5 net carb for a total of about 11.5 net carbs in the entire recipe.

Almond Meal Zucchini Muffins

I made these dairy free, but grated cheese in or on top would be good.

The leftover almond meal from making almond milk was 2 loose cups worth,
I combined it with just under half a cup of coconut flour, sifted with a heaped teaspoon of baking powder,
Beat together 4 eggs with 1 good sized zucchini (finely grated & NOT squeezed out), a glug of olive oil & a pinch of salt.
Add the wet to the dry,
bake 30-40mins at 180deg in greased lined texas muffin tins.
This made 5 muffins.

Chopped ham and wholegrain mustard would be good in these too with the zucchini.
You can use melted butter instead of the olive oil,
Finely chopped fresh herbs would be nice,
or add splenda, blueberries & cinnamon for a sweet muffin.

I think this would also make a good loaf,
or if you can bake it as separate buns or slices it would make good burger buns/sandwiches/toast.

Bridget I reckon you could make these vegan by adding some mashed pumpkin to replace the eggs, with maybe a bit of that egg substitute stuff that looks like egg whites when mixed up.

Edited to add I now prefer these made into flat rounds - spooned and shaped on baking paper then baked, they dont spread much,
they are great under poached eggs, or as a sort of pizza.
