Gluten-Free Meatloaf with Coconut Flour

Who doesn’t love meatloaf? Rich, savory and comforting, it’s been a family favorite for generations. Our Gluten-Free Meatloaf with Coconut Flour maintains all the best things you love about this dish, including the salty-sweet glazed ketchup on top. But we skip the cracker and cereal crumbs and add gluten-free coconut flour to help bind the loaf without adding grains. Coconut flour, which is made from dried, ground coconut meat, is high absorbent. Adding two eggs, instead of the usual one, and milk or broth will keep the meatloaf moist. The coconut flour will also help retain the natural juices from the meat. Be sure to let your fully cooked meatloaf set for the suggested time so all those delicious juices don’t run out when you cut that first slice.

Coconut Banana Smoothie

If you think you’re too busy for a nutritious breakfast, think again. Smoothies are packed with everything you need to start your day right–especially this coconut banana smoothie–and they take only minutes to make. We love this recipe because it incorporates a serving of organic extra virgin coconut oil, a healthy fat which helps kick start the old brain cells after an 8-hour rest. If you like the tart zing of citrus in the morning, fill an ice cube tray with orange or pineapple juice, and pop a couple of cubes into the mixture before blending. Preparation Tip: If your mornings are extra crazy you can get your coconut banana smoothie done even faster by placing all of the ingredients (minus the banana) for this nutrient-dense breakfast in a plastic container the night before. Just before you’re ready to leave, pour the ingredients into the blender, add the banana and whip up a delicious breakfast in less than five minutes.

Spicy Coconut Soup w- Bok Choy and Mushroo

Of all life’s simple pleasures, a delicious bowl of hot and spicy coconut soup on a cold winter night is one of the most soul-satisfying. If you think making a hearty bowl of soup is an all-day event, you’ll be surprised to find this recipe for spicy coconut soup takes less than 30 minutes from start to finish. Though our version uses sweet and tender baby bok choy, any green vegetable such as spinach, cabbage or Swiss chard work just as well. Buying ingredients that are fresh and in season is always the best choice. For a complete meal, add cooked, shredded chicken, cooked shrimp or tofu just before serving.

Put the Lime in the Coconut Water Refreshe

Before or after a workout, when the kids want a special to drink or anytime you need something a little more thirst quenching than plain water, try coconut water refresher made from simple ingredients you might already have in the pantry. Coconut water is a healthy alternative to soda or chemical-laden sports drinks, but don’t mistake it as a substitute for plain water. It should be regarded more as a fruit juice since that’s what it really is–the juice of the fruit of a coconut tree! Coconut water is super hydrating and doesn’t cause stomach upsets when consumed in large amounts like some sports drinks do. That’s why it’s a favorite among serious athletes who require plenty of hydration after a challenging workout. There are approximately 50 calories in a cup of coconut water, less than half the amount in a cup of apple juice, but drinking too much in a day could add more calories to your diet than you realize. Our coconut refresher uses only 2 cups of coconut water to make nearly 6 servings so it won’t destroy your calorie budget for the day.

Crunchy Coconut Oil Fish Nuggets

Coconut oil fish nuggets are a tropical twist on plain old fried fish. And a healthier twist too! Our recipe uses just two tablespoons of beneficial coconut oil to fry up a plateful of fish so you get all the flavor of fried foods without all the deep-fried consequences. These crunchy, coconutty nuggets are also the perfect way to get non-fish lovers to try something new. Kids especially love bite-sized foods they can dip into ketchup and these fish nuggets fit the bill. Any type of firm white fish you prefer will work equally well for this recipe. Avoid delicate fish such as tilapia, sole or flounder.

Coconut Sugar Lemon Squares

Summer Ham with Coconut Butter Glaze

Coconut butter may not be on the top of your ingredient list when you think about grilling, but maybe it should be. Especially when it’s used to glaze the most amazing grilled bone-in ham. Yes, we said grilled and bone-in ham in the same sentence. Like its holiday-meal cousin the whole turkey, bone-in ham is inexpensive, versatile and available all year long. Ham is everyone’s favorite for picnics and sandwich dinners, but who wants to roast a ham in the oven for hours when the temperature outside is reaching levels to rival the sun’s surface? With a little grill mastery you can cook an entire ham outside. The trick is to create a cool and hot side on the grill. It’s easy, really; simply pile up the charcoals on only one side of the grill pan, leaving the other side empty. If you use a gas grill it’s even easier, only heat the burners on one side. Now that you know the trick, let’s get cooking.

Coconut Macaroons- A Symphony of Textures

Can you keep a secret? Coconut macaroons are ridiculously easy to make. Yep, those tempting little stacks of coconut and cream that you pay a fortune for at the bakery are actually a snap to make at home. Our coconut macaroons include two unique differences from most other recipes. These little changes make a big impact when it comes to flavor. First, we toast half of the coconut to bring out the deep, nutty flavor everyone loves. Leaving half the coconut fresh means the finished macaroons will still be soft and chewy. So you get the best of both cookie worlds: crispy and chewy! The second unique addition is our use of coconut cream. We’ve replaced half of the condensed milk with thick, velvety coconut cream, a condensed version of coconut milk. Using unsweetened coconut cream for part of the liquid increases the natural coconut aroma and flavor of the cookie. It also helps balance the level sweetness which can be cloying in some macaroon recipes.

Carrot Cake Granola with Coconut Nectar

If carrot cake is your favorite springtime dessert but you draw the line at eating it for breakfast, our carrot cake granola with coconut nectar will fill the bill. It’s almost like eating vegetables for breakfast! And if you don’t know, organic coconut nectar syrup is a lightly sweet syrup that’s collected by hand from coconut palm blossoms. It’s lower on the glycemic index than other sweeteners and is rich in essential nutrients. So not only is it low in sugar, our recipe is filled with good-for-you fats from nuts and coconut oil. This granola works just as well as a serving of cereal or to top yogurt or ice cream. Roasting dehydrates the carrots and brings out their natural sweetness and the warm flavors of toasty oats and nuts are almost as comforting as an actual slice of cake. One of the best things about making your own granola is that you can adjust the ingredients and recipes to taste exactly the way you like them. But we do hope you’ll enjoy this granola with organic coconut nectar syrup recipe just as it is. All that’s missing is a dollop of cream cheese frosting! Hmm…

Gluten-Free Coconut Flour Brownies

Few things in life are better than a rich chocolaty brownie. But having all that yumminess and staying gluten-free can be a challenge. Some recipes for organic coconut flour brownies taste more like a coconut shell than the moist chewy treat you crave. That may be because organic coconut flour can’t be equally substituted for grain flour. Organic coconut flour is the dried, ground meat of the coconut. It is very dry and absorbent. Recipes using it require more liquid in order for the finished product to be moist and delicious. The addition of 6 eggs and a bit of applesauce ensure our brownies won’t become hockey pucks! Because organic coconut flour is high in protein and fiber, you can enjoy these brownies knowing they’re more than empty calories.

Warm-Your-Bones Coconut Drink with Coconut

Move over hot chocolate, there’s a new hot coconut drink in town. Sometimes a chocolaty, sugary drink is exactly what you want, but other times something a little lighter is in order. Our coconut drink with organic coconut sugar will not only warm your bones, it’s lactose free, low in sugar and provides a dose of healthy, delicious coconut oil. Enjoy this drink at breakfast, as a nutritious snack or snuggle up with a mug before bedtime. The kids will love it with cookies or with popcorn for family movie night. Once you’ve served it the first time, be prepared to make this yummy drink regularly because everyone who tries it will ask for more. Soy, dairy or other types of nut milk can be used, but the light, clean taste of rice milk allows the fruity taste and aroma of coconut to shine through. Since it contains organic extra virgin coconut oil, organic coconut sugar and shredded coconut it is loaded with tropical flavor. What an unexpected treat in a warm drink!

Gluten-Free Coconut Flour Pie Crust

Fall brings many warm and homey foods back to the table, and nothing evokes fall more than a delicious homemade pie. Can’t you just taste that flaky pie crust melting in your mouth? Too bad all your gluten-free friends have to suffer from that tough, rubbery thing that’s more like a giant cracker than anything deserving the name pastry. Or do they? Not if you use our super-secret, super-tender gluten-free coconut flour pie crust. The “secret” to our pie crust with coconut flour is eggs. Usually, eggs are reserved for the outside of a crust to help it bake up beautifully golden. But all baked goods made with coconut flour, even flaky pastries, benefit from the extra liquid an egg or two provides. Omit the sweetener from this recipe and use it for all types of savory dishes such as tarts, quiche or to top a chicken pot pie. Yum!

Coconut Flour Pizza Crust

Everyone who follows a gluten-free diet knows one of the biggest sacrifices is a truly tasty pizza. Gluten-free crusts can be crumbly tough and dry—barely better than the board they’re rolled out on. You may not have tried a coconut flour pizza crust because the natural sweetness of coconut flour doesn’t seem like it would pair well with a savory pizza. Certainly, coconut flour does work well in all types of cakes and desserts, but we think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the depth of flavor and great texture that can be achieved by using coconut flour in savory dishes too. Lovers of cheese, tomatoes and bread have been searching for the perfect pizza since the first pie was pulled from a wood-fired oven in Naples, Italy. Now it may be true that nothing can beat an authentic thin-crust pizza cooked in the traditional way, but you can satisfy those saucy cravings and stay on track with your health goals. We’ve relied on two methods typically used by the best pie makers: Use high heat to cook the crust and don’t overload the toppings.

Loaded Sweet Potato Fries- Southwest Style

Loaded Sweet Potato Fries Are Delicious and Nutritious! Sweet potato fries are everyone’s favorite healthy side dish because they taste great and are secretly good for you even though it seems like you’re eating something naughty. Loaded sweet potato fries take all that goodness a step or two farther! Our version is somewhat of a combination between chili fries, nachos and a loaded baked potato. Yes, we can hear your mouth watering from here. A creative twist for Taco Tuesday, a healthy after-school snack or a hearty side dish—our recipe makes just enough for two hungry folks to share. You can easily double or triple the amounts to meet your needs. If you’re not a sweet potato fry convert yet, maybe a few nutritional facts will help bring you over to the orange side. Sweet potatoes have fewer calories than white potatoes even though they contain more sugar. They’re high in lots of vitamins, such as A, B5 and B6. In fact, one serving of sweet potato provides an entire day’s worth of vitamin A which is an important antioxidant linked to cancer prevention and anti-aging.

Grilled Chicken with Coconut Milk Marinade

As long as you can still grill, it’s still summer. So come on, keep summer alive with this zesty, Thai-inspired grilled chicken with coconut milk marinade. Chicken breasts have a bad reputation for drying out, especially on the grill. We’ve solved that problem by allowing the chicken to marinade for at least 8 hours before cooking. With such a long time to marinade, the meat can soak up not only great flavor, but extra moisture to keep it juicy while grilling. Another great tip for perfectly grilled chicken, is to use a meat thermometer to check doneness. Remove the chicken as soon as it reaches the desired internal temperature. For chicken breasts, the ideal temperature is 170 degrees F.

The Best Christmas Punch Recipes

Mmm, punch. Today we think of it as a sugary sweet drink for a kid’s birthday party, but punch, especially Christmas punch, has a long and interesting history. Hot mulled wine, called wassail in merry old England, was once popular at winter parties of all kinds. Not only was a hot drink appreciated during a cold winter night, but the spices used were the same that were loved in holiday baked goods. In the food world, nothing says Christmas like the scent of cinnamon and cloves. Our Christmas punch recipe isn’t quite as complex as those of yore, but it’s just as delicious. We recommend making a double batch—keep half warming in a slow cooker set on low—so a hot serving is always ready. If you haven’t got a traditional punch bowl laying around, pour the drink into your prettiest ceramic or pottery bowl, surround the bottom with some greenery and other holiday decorations and you’ve got a wonderfully festive serving container. Don’t forget to provide a ladle so guests can help themselves. When should you serve Christmas punch? Anytime, really but it’s especially delicious with dessert and would pair perfectly with our Gluten-Free Gingerbread Cookies. It’s also a welcoming refreshment for guests when they first arrive to your home for a holiday get-togther.

Holiday Fruit Salad with Coconut Sugar

Not everything on the holiday dinner table needs to be heavy and full of fat—that’s where our Holiday Fruit Salad with Coconut Sugar comes in. Sometimes you just need that one more thing to balance out a big meal, and usually that thing is something fresh and light. Of course the flavor has to be there too. When there are pies and cookies and three different potato dishes to choose from, a plain tray of fruit doesn’t have much appeal. The secret ingredient of coconut sugar gives this recipe that extra something special that will have your guests and family coming back for seconds. For the best results, prepare this dish with seasonal fruit that’s available in your area. Citrus is at its peak in the winter, feel free to substitute orange segments for the grapefruit or add any other favorite fruits you family loves. Keep the portions correct—about 5 cups of fruit in all—to make sure there’s enough dressing to add maximum flavor. Make this dish for a traditional sit-down meal, a buffet or holiday potluck. We promise, they’ll gobble it up!

Easy Christmas Ham Steak

Not every holiday gathering involves a dozen people and at least that many pies. Sometimes a simple but elegant meal that doesn’t take all day is the best gift ever. Our recipe for Christmas ham steak is perfect for an intimate dinner or as a main course for holiday buffet. With only 5 ingredients it’s easy and economical but still tastes special enough for a celebration meal.

Because ham is the star of the show, be certain to choose high-quality cooked ham steak about 3/4-inch thick. Approximately 1lb of steak is enough to serve four people.

Margarita Cheesecake Bars

Summertime. If it’s too hot to cook a big meal, it’s probably too hot to bake dessert. Ice cream is a delicious option when the temperatures soar, but even that sweet treat can get a little tiresome if enjoyed too often. What’s a person to do when their sweet tooth won’t be denied, and baking a cake is out of the question? Our margarita-inspired no-bake dessert will satisfy the need for a sweet-tart, cool and creamy dessert that’s totally chill. Our version does include a splash of your favorite tequila, but if you prefer an alcohol free version, omit the liquor and the lemon extract, and add a tablespoon of fresh lemon juice. We suggest making two batches of this no-bake dessert and keeping one in the freezer for a quick treat on a hot, busy night.

Make Ahead Coconut Flour Pound Cake

Pound cake is one of the most versatile baked goods in the kitchen. Alone, it’s the perfect accompaniment for an afternoon cup of tea, or top it with fruit and whipped cream for an upscale shortcake-style dessert everyone will love. Our coconut flour pound cake cuts and tastes best after resting for 24 hours, but don’t let its make-ahead requirement deter you from enjoying this moist and gluten-free cake. If you’re new to baking with coconut flour, the inclusion of 10 eggs in a cake recipe might seem like a mistake. We promise, it’s not! Coconut flour is highly absorbent and requires the addition of more liquids than other types of flours. Learn more about baking with coconut flour here.
