Man I have been working and doing so much cooking for other people, that I have been neglecting my own creativity and this site (my baby!). Naturally I woke up on Saturday, for what felt like my first day off in weeks, and got down to business. Kale had been taunting me in the fridge for days. The venison in the freezer has been calling my name for weeks, pleading with me to grind it. Cookies, cookies, cookies, I’ve had a feeling that I needed to make some cookies. Finally I silenced my inner creativity and wanna baker.
With coconut flour on hand, I felt like I could rock some coconut flour cookies. The batter was runnier than I’d hoped for, so instead of adding more flour (coconut can get kind of chalky to me), I poured it into a pan and made some lovely cookie bars. Sprinkle some cinnamon on top and I personally called it day. It would be perfect for a cookie pizza, maybe (hint, hint).
Coconut Flour Cookie Bars
- 1 cup coconut flour
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
- 1/ cup melted lard
- 1 cup coconut milk
- 6 local, pasture-raised eggs
- 1 tbsp vanilla
- 1/2 cup honey
- Cinnamon and Coconut Sugar to sprinkle on top
Let’s Make it Happen: Mix coconut flour and sea salt. In a separate bowl, whisk eggs, lard, milk, vanilla and honey. Gradually stir in the dry ingredients. Pour into a greased pan. Smooth out evenly. Sprinkle coconut sugar and cinnamon on the top. Bake at 350 for 12 to 15 minutes. Slice or top for a fruit pizza.
