Gluten Free Coconut Flour Chocolate & Raspberry Crepes! The perfect weekend morning breakfast!

Makes 2 servings
Dry ingredients:
2tbsp of Better Body Foods coconut flour
1tbsp TruVibe Organics cacao powder
1/4tsp ground flaxseed
1/4tsp baking powder

Wet Ingredients:
5.5oz unsweetened vanilla almond milk
3 large egg whites – room temperature
1tbsp Better Body Foods agave nectar
1tbsp melted Better Body Foods coconut oil

Filling:
4 large fresh raspberries
1tsp water
1 packet of stevia
33grams fat free Philadelphia cream cheese
50grams Dannon Light & Fit fat free vanilla greek yogurt
Topping: additional raspberries & sugar free chocolate sauce

Crack 3 egg whites into a bowl and allow to reach room temperature. In a separate bowl add the milk with the agave nectar and microwave for 20 seconds. (this will keep the melted coconut oil from hardening when added). Once milk & egg whites are room temperature, add in the egg whites & coconut oil. Mix together all of the dry ingredients in a medium sized bowl and then whisk in the wet ingredients. Allow to sit for about 10 minutes so the coconut flour can soak up some of the liquid and thicken. Batter will still be runnier than pancake batter.

While the batter is resting, make your crème filling! Place the 4 raspberries, packet of stevia and teaspoon of water in a small bowl and microwave for 25 seconds. Next stir in the cream cheese until smooth and then add in the greek yogurt. Set aside.

Cook 1/8 of a cups worth of batter in a small skillet over medium-low heat for about 5 minutes, without flipping and then slide out of pan onto a plate. While the next one is cooking, add 1tbsp of filling to crepe and roll up. Repeat with remaining batter/filling. Top with some more fresh raspberries & sugar free chocolate sauce.

‘No Bake’ German Chocolate PROTEIN Bites – Quick & Simple!

I whipped these up today in honor of #FingerFoodFriday’s COCONUT theme!

6 pitted medjool dates (soaked in water for an hour)
1 scoop(30grams) Plant Fusion chocolate protein powder
1/4cup + (1tbsp for topping) of reduced fat unsweetened coconut – divided
1/4cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/2tbsp Better Body Foods coconut oil
Amber Lyn Chocolates SUGAR FREE dark chocolate bite

Place all ingredients into a food processor and mix until well combined. A spatula will be your best friend with this recipe! Keep scraping down the sides until the dates are all chopped up. Roll into balls and then lightly flatten into squares. Place the tablespoon of shredded coconut in a small bowl and dip the tops of the squares into it. Place the chocolate square in a zip lock bag and microwave for about 30-45 seconds until melted. Snip off the corner of the bag & squeeze onto bites! Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Gluten Free Chocolate Chia PROTEIN Bites – Quick & Easy!

Ingredients:

2 scoops (60grams) of Plant Fusion chocolate protein powder
1tbsp TruVibe Organics chia seeds
2tbsp Better Body Foods agave nectar
2tbsp of Better Body Foods coconut oil
1tbsp of TruVibe Organics cacao powder
2tbsp of nut butter of choice
4-5tbsp of milk of choice
1/4 reduced fat unsweetened finely shredded coconut

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl EXCEPT the coconut. I find it best to knead it like a dough with my hands as it will start out pretty crumbly. Slowly add the milk in as the amount needed will probably differ with different protein powders. Once you have formed one large dough ball, break off pieces and roll into desired size balls and place on a piece of wax/parchment paper. After you have all of your balls formed, place the coconut on a plate and roll each ball. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

I am the queen of online shopping! Allow me to introduce you to my most recent find – Sweet Spreads Coconutter which is an all natural flavored coconut butter.

I had seen many different people posting about these all over Instagram. So of course, I had to try it! OH MY GOODNESS, I had no idea what my taste buds were in for – WOW! I picked up the sampler pack which came with 6 smaller jars of their White Chocolate, Cinnamon Roll, Maple Pancake, Chocolate Brownie, Dark Chocolate Mint & Vanilla Cupcake (which is what you see on top of my blondie in this picture!). It was seriously hard for me to pick a favorite but I think I’m leaning towards the Dark Chocolate Mint! It reminded me of either a thin mint cookie or Andes mint.

If you’ve never heard of this company than I highly encourage you to check them out! From what I could tell they are based out of Miami, FL and their products can be purchased online here: http://www.sweetspreads.com/

ENJOY!
