Today we have a guest post from Carol Lovett of Ditch The Wheat! Please head over to Ditch The Wheat and check out Carols delicious grain free creations and take a peak at her book, Indulge: 70 Grain Free Recipes. You can also connect with Carol on her facebook page!
I’m Carol Lovett and I’m from the blog, Ditch The Wheat. I love making desserts especially with coconut in them. You’ll always find me playing around with coconut flour and coconut oil in my recipes. I love working with both of these ingredients. If you do too, we’ll be great friends! I’m sharing on Coconut Mama’s blog a recipe I developed specifically for you! I call it chocolate coconut bars.
If you are intimated by baking with coconut flour you’ll find chocolate coconut squares are easy to make and you probably have the ingredients in your cupboard to get started. All you basically need is egg whites, shredded coconut and chocolate. Plus it’s a budget friendly dessert/snack to make and I like that!

Coconut butter is one of my favorite things and I love to eat it by the spoonful. Ever since I made Coconut Chips, I have been obsessed with toasted coconut. These Toasted Coconut Butter Cups are a great way to combine my love of coconut butter and toasted coconut. It is really easy to make your own Toasted Coconut Butter. All you have to do is toast the coconut flakes and throw them in a food processor or high speed blender. In a matter of minutes the toasted coconut flakes turn into a delicious gooey coconut butter. You’ll end up with about 2 cups of coconut butter and it makes about 24 Toasted Coconut Butter Cups.
Do you follow a gluten-free diet? Are you a vegetarian? Do you eat a lot of vegetarian meals to save money?
Even though I’m not a vegetarian I do eat a lot of vegetarian meals throughout the week. Why? Because my family eats pasture raised grass-fed meat, which is a little expensive on our tight food budget. Eating vegetarian meals 2-3 times a week helps my family keep our food budget low while still eating healthy!
Today I’m excited to share a recipe from the new book, Gluten Free Vegetarian by Hannah Healy of Real Food Vegetarian. Gluten Free Vegetarian has over 120 pages of recipes and tutorials that are all meatless, gluten-free and soy free!
Hannah was kind enough to let me share a recipe with my readers this week. I picked her Chickpea Stuffed Sweet Potatoes with Balsamic Glaze recipe! I love sweet potatoes and I’m always looking for new ways to serve them.

I’ve been craving ice cream lately but can not eat dairy due to a sensitivity I just found out I have. Bummer! I don’t have an ice cream maker either so I had to shoot for the next best thing… popsicles! I know, I’m sort of late getting on the popsicle bandwagon but lucky for me (and lucky for you) popsicles are good any time of the year — especially here in sunny Florida.

Hi! I’m Julie de Lagarde of Real Fit Mama, and today I’m introducing you to one of the many heavenly places on earth where coconuts grow. We will be travelling down to a remote island in the southern Caribbean, about ¾ of the way from Florida to South America. Dominica is a small commonwealth nation in the West Indies, rugged and wild, with little development.
Considered the nature island of the Caribbean, its 29 square miles contain primarily lush tropical rainforest and boast over 365 rivers. My mother-in-law owns a two acre coconut and cinnamon farm here, which she named Zephyra’s Wisdom.
Happy Tuesday! Every Tuesday I share a tip that I have found useful in my kitchen or home. Today I’m sharing a tip for making your own date paste. Date paste (also known as date honey) is a natural fruit sweetener that you can use in place of honey or maple syrup in recipes. Dates are super nutritious and make for a healthy alternative to sugar. Dates are also “legal” on the GAPS™ diet and other healing diets many of my readers follow.
I love junior mints! I was craving these delicious candies this week so I decided to recreate them with healthier ingredients. The mint filling is made with just coconut oil, raw honey and peppermint extract. I used soy free chocolate chips to coat the mints. These are pretty easy to make and they taste soooo good! Enjoy!
