Four aprons, 3 very excited kids and a kitchen about to become a complete mess. Then half an hour later a small pile of mini coconut cakes that need putting out of reach of very tempted tummies.
These can be made up as cookies or small cakes depending on your desired result. We made 24 mini cakes today.
- 200g Coconut Flour
- 75g Xylitol or unrefined sugar
- 50g cacao nibs or chopped nuts (optional)
- 1 tsp sweet spices (e.g. cinnamon or ginger)
- 5 eggs
Mix together the dry ingredients then whisk in the eggs to make a thick airy batter.
Spoon the batter into moulds
Bake in a moderate oven (170 deg C in my fan assisted oven) for 10-20 mins depending on mould size.
I've found more coconut based gluten free recipes at the Spunky Coconut. She's even having a special Holiday blog carnival for gluten free recipe links, I'm entering with these coconut bites.
