2 TBS Organic Cold Pressed Virgin Coconut Oil (melted)
1/4 cup Agave Syrup or other acceptable sweetener
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1/4 cup sifted coconut flour
1/4 tsp. aluminum-free baking powder
3 TBS dried shredded unsweetened coconut
Preheat oven to 400° F. Grease 6 muffins w/additional coconut oil or use muffin cups. Set aside.
In a small bowl beat eggs, coconut oil, Agave syrup, and salt together. Combine coconut flour and baking powder together and whisk into batter until smooth.
Fill muffin cups half-way with batter and sprinkle with shredded coconut. Bake in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes.
Recipe makes 6 muffins but the recipe can easily be doubled to make 12. If you are past the first stage the Candida diet and are able to have berries you can stir in 1/4 cup of frozen blueberries to the mixed batter. These are so moist and tender and are not just for breakfast but make a wonderful snack. I slather them with more coconut oil to add even more delicious coconut flavor!

Treats (approved for the Candida Diet of course! =)
**Note: Agave Nectar is used in a couple of these recipes and is only recommended if you've gotten rid of your Candida/Yeast and use it occasionally. It is a sugar and shouldn't be used in high amounts as it will feed Candida/Yeast. Use another sweetener such as Erythritol, Xylitol or Stevia in small amounts instead.

Adapted recipe from Elana's Pantry
*Some notes on this recipe. First it's delicious, second it took me a bit to get it right. I experimented with a variety of ingredients, some worked, some didn't. One thing is that the brand of Almond Flour is important. For some reason the Bob's Red Mill brand doesn't work in her recipes so she recommends Honeyville Farm brand and it does seem to better in her recipes. You can find that on Amazon as I bought it there for a bigger quantity but it worked out to be much less per pound than in the store. I have also used Coconut Nectar in place of the Agave Nectar as it has a very low glycemic index. It was good (doesn't have a coconut flavor) and less sweet than the Agave. You can purchase Coconut Nectar at the Raw Food World store. I haven't looked in the stores to see if they carry it yet. I have used butter in place of the oil and I also used 1/2 butter and 1/2 coconut oil and both were delicious. Something that is a must for these cookies is to let cool for the 20 minutes or else you'll have a big mess! They harden as they cool. I have also made these into bars which were really good as well, although very soft. If you're looking for pretty then don't make the bars! All I know is that they are now my favorite "sweet" treat.
These cupcakes are gluten-free, dairy-free, lactose-free
and sugar-free. And guess what, they are delicious!
These would be perfect for a birthday treat for a child or an adult, just add candles. :o)
2 TBS coconut oil
1/4 cup blanched almond flour, packed
2 tsp. vanilla flavor or coconut flavor (alcohol-free from Frontier Brand)
2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut, ground into a meal
1 TBS sifted coconut flour
1/4 cup coconut milk
1/2 cup xylitol or erythritol
1/8 tsp. sea salt
3 large eggs
1/2 tsp. aluminum-free baking powder
Preheat oven to 325° F
Grind the shredded coconut into a fine, powdery meal with a food processor or a Magic Bullet blender.
Pack the almond flour into measuring cup with your hands (like you would w/brown sugar) and sweep it level.
Mix the finely ground coconut, almond flour, coconut flour, xylitol or erythritol, sea salt and baking power in a bowl.
In a separate bowl melt the coconut oil (if needed), and beat in eggs, vanilla flavor, and coconut milk.
Add dry ingredients into wet ingredients, and beat together for a couple of minutes.
Line a mini muffin pan with mini muffin papers and spray w/extra virgin olive oil spray OR grease mini muffin wells very well w/coconut oil.
Pour batter almost to the top of the mini muffin cups. Rap muffin tin gently on the counter to pop air bubbles.
Bake for about 23 minutes until springy and firm to the touch. You might have to bake these longer or shorter depending on your oven and where you live. (high altitudes usually require longer cooking times)
Remove cakes from muffin tins as soon as they are cool to the touch, and cool on a wire rack.
Dip cakes into glaze and sprinkle with unsweetened coconut.
Serve at room temperature and Enjoy!
Note: FYI - I did not make the glaze as they were sweet enough for me without it.
Coconut Milk Glaze
1 cup full fat coconut milk, chilled
4 tsp coconut flour
Xylitol or Erythritol, to taste
Tiny pinch of sea salt
Whisk together coconut milk, and sift in coconut flour.
Whisk in coconut flour until there are no lumps, then add a pinch of sea salt, and sweeteners.
Taste and adjust sweetness level if necessary.
Dip cakes into glaze and sprinkle with unsweetened coconut
These cupcakes are low in net carbs so they are great for people with blood sugar issues as they won't raise glucose and insulin levels. They also won't feed Candida as the ingredients are anti-fungal. Xylitol, Erythritol and Coconut Oil are all anti-fungal foods.
Xylitol is a natural insulin stabilizer, therefore it doesn’t cause a spike in blood sugar and actually helps reduce sugar and carbohydrate cravings. There is a growing consensus among anti-aging research that maintaining low insulin levels is one of the keys to a successful anti-aging program.Xylitolusa.com

(use an approved sweetener for you)
1/4 cup grapeseed oil or coconut oil (melted) 2 eggs
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 tsp. vanilla flavoring (do not use vanilla extract as it has alcohol)
1 TBS water (or just enough to bind everything)
1/4 cup arrowroot (some people are sensitive to this please have this tested before using)
*1/2 cup coconut flour
**1-1/8 cup buckwheat flour
1-1/2 tsp. baking powder
1tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 cup unsweetened carob chips
1/4 cup pine nuts (or other approved nuts)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a bowl, blend sweetener and oil. Mix In egg, then applesauce and vanilla.
Sift together arrowroot through nutmeg.
Add to wet ingredients. Blend on low speed for 2 minutes adding the water just until the ingredients are combined.
Fold in currants and nuts.

Bake 10 minutes or until lightly browned.
**You can use other types of flours that are on your allowed list.
* You can find Coconut flour at Vitamin Cottage. It smells and tastes wonderful!
Carob Chip Cookies
1 stick Butter softened (1/2 cup)
1/4 tsp. Stevia Extract Powder (I don't add this and I think they taste fine)
1/2 tsp. Vanilla (alcohol free)
1/2 Cup Whole Wheat Flour (if you can't eat wheat use other flours like spelt, rice, or kamut)
1/2 tsp. Sea Salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda (or use 1/4 tsp. soda and 1/4 tsp. cream of tartar)
1 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup chopped nuts
1/2 cup unsweetened carob chips
Mix together the first four ingredients. Add the remaining ingredients in order with slight variations possible. Divide into cookies and bake 10 minutes at 375 degrees F.
*Please note that these cookies will be VERY different than the highly sweetened cookies you are used to eating. But when you have a need for a healthy treat they fit the bill, at least for me! I like the crunchiness of the carob chips and the cake like texture of the cookie. You might even try adding an approved sweetener to experiment with this recipe.
1/2 cup coconut oil
1 cup almond butter
1-1/2 cups unsweetened carob chips
1 cup wheat germ (I used Oat Bran or you could use Hemp Seed if can't have grains)
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup sesame seeds
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup shredded, unsweetened coconut
On medium, melt coconut oil, almond butter and carob chips. Stir in remaining ingredients.
Transfer ingredients to a 5X7 inch glass baking pan and press.
Let cool and then refrigerate.
