Coconut Macaroons...didn't know if the recipe was there..

Coconut Macaroons..makes about 16...and 4 equals one Tbs. of the oil

2 egg whites
dash of salt
1/2 tsp. of vanilla
6 pkts of Splenda..which would be 12 teaspoons
1 cup unsweetened coconut

Beat whites until frothy. Add salt and vanilla..and beat some more..adding sweetener as you beat. When stiff, fold in the coconut..and plop by the teaspoonful on greased cookie sheet. Bake at 300-325 until slightly browned..(about 15 minutes). Remove and enjoy.

Now...the package of coconut said that 3 Tbs. had 90 calories of fat..there are 16 Tbs. in a cup..so 540 calories of fat in a cup of the coconut..so about 1/4 of the recipe would give you a serving of coconut oil..

These are sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo delicious..A nice change from chocolate (did I say that?)

Sometimes I put a little fiberfit in it, but either way is good.
Sometimes I like it without all the sweet.

It has a nice mouth melt feeling - creamy and....peanutbuttery

MMMMM!! I bet you could make a batch and refrigerate until it firms up, then roll into balls and then roll in unsweetened coconut flakes or melted SF chocolate! Or crushed peanuts or cocoa powder or.... OK time to hit the kitchen!

Or chill till firm....make small balls and put a peanut inside. Then roll it in melted bark choco (since the VCO helps to make the shell harder). Or lay out on a sheet of parchment and pour the choco over it and let it roll around to cover. And chill

INSTANT COCONUT PNB M&M's


(can you feel the excitement)

Char....let us know how it works out!

VCO Shake

I call it a shake - strawberry shake.

3 T VCO - 0 carb
1 egg (raw) - 1 carb
1/3 cup whey protein - 2 carb
2 T heavy whipping cream - 1 carb
2 T vanilla Divinci's - 0 carb
2 tsp vanilla extract - 1 carb
4 drops Sweetzfree (I like mine sweet!) - 0 carb
3 or 4 small strawberries - 3 carbs (not sure about the carbs but guessing)
2 cups ice -0 carb
Total carbs = 8

Blend all ingredients together (melt coconut oil if not already melted). Blend well. Add ice and blend until smooth. I like my shake thick like a milk shake so I might add more ice. Enjoy!

Pina Colada..anyone?

6 ounces of V8 Splash...Tropical Blend
4 ounces of coconut milk
optional: 1 Tbs. pineapple Davinci's

Stir and serve over ice..or just cold..

Of course, you could make a pina colada shake out of this by adding ice cubes
and protein powder in the blender..

There are several but this may be the one that your are looking for that is for an individual serving

http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/sh...90&postcount=6

I tried this recipe with a few tweaks and it was GREAT!

2 Tbs. flaxseed meal
2 Tbs. Carbquik (I used MiniCarb Zero Carb bake mix0
2 Tbs. coconut
1 Tbs. sweetener or Davinici's (Coconut Davinci's)
1 egg, beaten
1 Tbs. coconut oil, melted (2 Tbs. Coconut oil)
2 Tbs. Coconut milk
1 Tbs. Lemon Juice

Mix this all up and put it in a cereal bowl or small casserole in the microwave...

This made 2 servings for me and was very moist and delicious!

Here's another coconut muffin recipe. I adapted this from another LC muffin recipe I've been using for quite awhile.

WET:
3 eggs beaten
2 t. vanilla extract
3/4 C coconut oil
1 C water

Mix all wet and let thicken

DRY:
1 C flaxmeal
1 C almond flour
1 C whey powder
1 C Splenda
1 t. xanthan gum
2 t. baking powder
dash of salt
optional: 3/4 C shredded unsweetened coconut

Preheat oven to 350. Beat wet and dry ingredients together. Pour into greased muffin tins. Bake for 30- 35 minutes.

Coconut Cookies (original recipe from 5cats)
4 T VCO
1/3 cup granular splenda
1 beaten egg
Couple of drops of watkins pure vanilla extract (this stuff is strong but good)
2 T unsweetened coconut
1/6 cup carbquik
1/6 cup coconut flour
1 T heavy whipping cream.

Mix, drop 8 portions onto cookie sheet, flatten crisscrossed with fork, bake 375 degrees for about 11 minutes.
Making 8 cookies, I get the following:
calories = 100
fat = 7.5
saturated fat = 7
carbs = 4
fiber = 2
protein = 1
These are sooooooo good, very delicate and the closest thing to a real cookie I have made since lowcarbing.

Hi Everyone,
I was so excited about this coconut oil that I did tons of research, wrote down all of yours advice on which brand to buy/not buy and I finally bought some. I bought Spectrum Expell Pressed. It is great. I made the first coconut bark recippe that I came to and I must say that it was disgusting. I usually don't throw food away, but I couldn't even choke it down. I was a bit bummed. So I experimented and developed a recipe that I actually like. I used all of your ideas and put them together. Here is what I got:

1/4 cup coconut oil
1/2 ounce unsweetened chocolate
1 heaping TBSP peanut butter
2 packets splenda
1/4 tsp liquid stevia
1/4 cup chopped nuts (I used peanuts)
1/4 cup flaxmeal


I melted the unsweetened chocolate in microwave for 20 seconds stirred and tehn another 10 seconds, added coconut oil and peanut butter and stirred until it was all melted and blended together. (My oil stays liquified because I live in AZ). I added the rest of the ingredients and poured it into 10 muffin cups and placed them on a cookie sheet into the freezer. 10 minutes later, yummy.

Next time I will probably divide the mixture up into 12 portions because they were bigger than they needed to be.

I just wanted to thank you all for inspiring me to make a recipe that finally worked for me.

Hi Sasasota, Wellcome !
I cannot fatham the bark with Expeller Coil as I use the Condensed Cream of Coconut because I WANT the natural fiber that is in it. I have the no sugar added coco (Swiss Miss) and CCC for breaky every day. The bark (plain and with PB or nuts) comes out like Dove Ice. I like the liquid unsweet choc. and I use liq. sachrin because that is the only liquid one I can find. I use those little foil cups too and really just go ahead and almost fill them and use them every 4 hours or like that. Portion control is a problem with me so I make the small batches daily or so.
Don't know how I lived without CCC.
Elaine

Elaine, what brand of CCC are you using and where do you get it? I have the Coconut Cream Concentrate from Tropical Traditions, is the one you are referring to? I have used it in bark, but not just that. It is good though.

Yes Bufffy, it is the TT brand I bought 3 32ozers and a gal of coconut flakes. I opened one jar (glass) this morning and WOW- It taste like a fresh opened nut. Gently melt though as it warns about burning by yellowing. My Sister died of colon cancer probably from the chemo as she had breathing problems as well, so I am a fiber obsessed. Some Dr.s say that there is no such thing as too much NATURAL fiber. I have that PolyD on my next order list along with fiber-fit- Do you use those?
Elaine

Adendum- I also got the Hymalian salt for the minerals- been buying from France but this is much better processed differently.
Elaine

Yes Elaine, I do use the polyD, and use it in my coconut oil bark. I also bought some coconut fiber and some coconut flour, both high in fiber. I also have the fiber-fit, but haven't experimented with it as much. I love the polyd in the bark, gives it more texture and love the added fiber. I understand and am sorry to hear about your sister, my grandson just finished 8 months of chemo for bone cancer. So far, so good for him, we pray it doesn't come back.

Hi there,
Question:
Why is both Splenda and Stevia used?
Cannot just Splenda be used?
Thank you, Emily

You can use only Splends, but I like using Stevie because it ir so concentrated, I use less, as well as no carbs vs. carbs.

I just made a new batch, I ommited the peanut butter and flaxmeal and added toasted unsweetened coconut ans 2 drops of coconut extract.

Its in the freezer right now, I can't wait to try it.

Buffy,

Would you post your recipe of chocolate bark with PolyD? I have some but haven't used it much. Also, what is Condensed Cream of Coconut? How do you use it and where do you get it?
