Coconut Chocolate Bread Remix — A Guest Post By Katie

Happy Tuesday Everyone! I am still away in Aruba (but will be returning tonight, lucky you ;)), so for my last day away, I wanted to have one of my favorite little followers share one of her recipes! As many of you know, my hope is to someday work with younger kids and teach them how to live a healthy and fit lifestyle. Katie, from Goober Nut’s Life, is the perfect example of what I’d love to teach the younger generation! Katie has been following my blog for the last several months. Through blog comments, twitter and instagram, I have gotten to know this little firecracker! And when I say firecracker, boy do I mean it! Katie is constantly posting pictures and updates of her lifting routines, running schedules and clean eats! She is an amazing example of what our teens (she’s 15) need to be doing in their free time — exercising and eating right! 🙂 She has even gotten several of her friends to join her in group exercise classes, open gym time and long walks! I tell her all the time how inspiring she is and how influential she could be on the younger population! And even though she spends much of her time working out like a rock star and prepping healthy meals, she still knows how to be a kid and enjoy her friends! She has her ups and downs, like we all do, and she shares these personal moments on her blog! It brings to life the challenges of being a teenager, yet through it all she has found the perfect balance! She is one inspiring young lady! I hope one day we get to meet in person ( and run a marathon together!) 😉

So without further ado……here is Katie!

 

Hey, everyone! 🙂

My name’s Katie, and I write at Goober Nut’s Life . I’m a stalker frequent reader of Sarah’s blog, and always enjoy seeing what new recipes she posts. I wish that I was as creative as her and could come up with the cool recipes she does. I hope that with more time and experience in the kitchen, that might actually happen. Soon. 😉

For now, I can take credit for successfully making a different version of one of her recipes—a plain chocolate version of her low carb Coconut Cherry Loaf. 

Fit Ingredients:

·        ½ cup + 1 tbs coconut flour (60 g)

·        About ½ chocolate protein powder (40 g)

·        2 tbsp cocoa powder (10 g) –more for a deeper chocolate taste

·        ¼ cup stevia (or sweetener of choice)

·        1 1 /2 tsp baking powder

·        1/2 cup light coconut milk

·        4 large eggs

·        3 egg whites or 1/4c +2tbs (92g) liquid egg whites

·        1/4c + 1 1/2 tbs (80g) plain greek yogurt  (can be 2% or nonfat—not much difference!)

·        1 tbs vanilla extract

Directions

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray your loaf pan with non stick spray. In a bowl combine your coconut flour, protein powder, sweetener and baking powder.In a second bowl whisk your eggs, egg whites, coconut milk, greek yogurt,vanilla extract and coconut extract. Add your wet ingredients into your dry ingredients and mix well. Fold in your cherries (and shredded coconut, if using). Pour your batter into your loaf pan. Bake for 55-60 minutes. Allow the loaf to cool.Slice into 6 thick slices or 8 thin slices.

This was my first time using coconut flour in a recipe. At first, I was extremely doubtful that I would wind up with anything bread-like, especially since the batter was more watery than I’m used to when I bake (think cookie dough for what I consider “normal” batter). I was pleasantly surprised when I took it out of the oven and saw that it looked exactly like a loaf of bread, and I was really thrilled when I sliced it and saw that it looked like this.


I’ve enjoyed slices of this treat by itself, with nut butter, cottage cheese, or plain Greek yogurt. I think my favorite way of enjoying it, however, would be taking a nice warm slice and smearing it with some coconut butter.

Many thanks to Sarah, who patiently answered all of my questions and helped me put together this recipe. I got a perfectly tasty loaf of “bread” on my first try, it tastes even better to me, because I know that it’s a lot healthier than most desserts I could make. I also don’t need to worry about it going bad, because my family wants to help me polish it off, and I obviously don’t mind sharing this “secretly nutritious” goodness with them. 😉

And THANK YOU to Katie for stopping by today and sharing her version of this Coconut Chocolate Bread Remix!! I hope you all enjoy it as much as she did! And you know that I will be making a batch for myself when I return!! 🙂 Don’t forget to stop by Katie’s blog and say hello!! 🙂
