Low Carb Chocolate Chip Coconut Flour Bread

Can you eat Dessert before Dinner??

When it is packed with protein, healthy fats, and superfoods – Sure you can!

 

My girls love getting messy in the kitchen, whipping up all sorts of treats…But I want to make sure I am teaching them easy recipes that also keep them healthy!

 

So many recipes are packed with SUGAR (yuck!) and as much as they may taste good, they are really doing us harm.

If you are struggling with cutting out the sugar, here are Four simple Tips that really helped me break the sugar addiction.

 

One thing I learned when I was trying to get healthy was that Healthy FATs were my friend! (Seriously!!)

Did you know that we were LIED to? Saturated Fats (like grassfed butter and coconut oil) are actually good for you!

 

They help me stay full longer (help regulate blood sugar), give you energy (fat is a fuel too!) but without the crash, and they can actually boost your metabolism! So here’s to eating more healthy fats, and enjoying great recipes like this one that gives you fiber, healthy fats, and protein too!

 

Now, for a simple Low Carb Chocolate Chip Bread Recipe your kids will BEG you for! 

Low Carb Chocolate Chip Coconut Flour Bread

 

Recipe:

6 eggs
1 tsp baking powder
4 tablespoons of coconut oil
3.5 tablespoons of milk (I used almond milk)
2/3 cups of coconut flour
1/2 tsp of salt
8 tsps of truvia
1 tsp of vanilla extract
1/3 cup low carb dark chocolate chips.

Mix wet ingredients and mix in dry ingredients. Then stir in chocolate chips.

Pour into parchment lined 9×6 bread pan.

Bake 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes.

Enjoy!

P.S. If you want an simple and easy way to get healthy fats, give your metabolism an extra boost, and collagen to keep you looking young even when you are on the go – check out my favorite instant butter coffee! 

Gluten Free Banana Bread

Gluten Free Banana Bread

by Maria Alison at Ten at the Table

 

I am so thrilled to have Maria as my guest today sharing her Gluten Free Banana Bread. I know that Banana Bread is just an all time favorite of mine and always a treat. I can’t wait to try this recipe out! I hope you all enjoy this great recipe that will be perfect for sharing. – Angela

 

I like to take the gluten free option whenever there is one. And you can hardly tell that this banana bread is gluten-free. It’s moist, insanely delicious, and has the same texture and flavor as banana bread made with wheat flour! Sometimes I like to add chocolate chips to the banana bread, like I did today, and it just takes the banana bread to another level. The chocolate chips are completely optional but I use them for the flavor and the health benefits. You could also add in some chopped nuts if you’d like.

Gluten Free Banana Bread

There are lots of different brands of gluten free flour that can be found in most stores now. My favorite is the Bob’s Red Mill 1-to-1 Baking Flour because it gives such great results! It’s a great alternatives to those with celiac disease or anyone trying to avoid gluten anyway. Most gluten-free flour blends require xanthan gum to give your baked goods the same results as if you were to use all-purpose flour. Any gluten-free flour you have used before and trust is perfect.

This gluten-free banana bread is sensational! It’s easy to make, it’s inexpensive, and it’s got such a tender, moist crumb to it. I even prefer this banana bread to the kind made with wheat flour. It’s the best banana bread I’ve ever eaten. And the chocolate chips made it 10 times better. I will definitely be making this again and again. read more

I love using my Orgreenic Non-stick pan for cooking eggs and making grilled cheese sandwiches. I’ve had it almost 2 years now. I learned a while ago that I need to re-season or Restore a non-stick pan every 6 months to keep it working so foods won’t stick.

 

I had to learn how to restore a non stick pan before I went out and bought another pan just out of frustration. I tried these steps and it really worked! My eggs stopped sticking in the morning. I regained my sanity after not having to scrub the baked on eggs every day either. read more

Story of a Stay at Home Mom

Story of a Stay at Home Mom

If a mom pours a cup of coffee,
Then the toddler will ask for eggs.
You make her eggs and cheese, but then she decides she would rather have oatmeal and pineapple.

You decide to not fight about it because eggs sound good to you… With your coffee – that is cold now. So you put it in the microwave.

Just as you sit down with your eggs and coffee, the baby wakes up and needs to be changed and fed.

You run upstairs, change baby, come back downstairs and sit to nurse. Feeling hungry and thirsty now because nursing does that…

You put the baby in Exersaucer, put on PBS for toddler.

Sigh. Your coffee is cold. Put it back in microwave along with eggs.

Sit down with hot coffee and eggs. Eat one bite.

Toddler wants her snack… You fix an almond butter sandwich… Licking your fingers for a taste of food.

Toddler wants to play a game. ‘Let’s play tea party.’ Where she will pour you a cup of imaginary… Coffee.
