When I saw The Complete Coconut Cookbook was coming out this month, I was so excited. Besides the fact that it is also by my book publisher, Robert Rose, I have been a fan of coconut way before it’s popularity. If you’re looking for a great breakfast recipe, try these Essential Coconut Pancakes. Few things top homemade pancakes, and this coconut variation is a winner with kids and adults alike. You’ll stay satisfied for hours, too, thanks to the high protein content of the chickpea flour (10 grams in 1 cup compared to 8 grams in wheat flour) and the high fiber content of the coconut flour. They also taste amazing. If you’re like me and super busy on the weekdays, you can make these ahead of time and refrigerate them between sheets of waxed paper, tightly covered in plastic wrap, for up to 2 days or freeze, enclosed in a sealable plastic bag, for up to 1 month. Let thaw at room temperature or defrost in the microwave.
This book is fabulous! You will enjoy 300 all-natural, easy-to-make coconut recipes by Camilla Saulsbury, a great cookbook author. She discusses the differences in coconut oils, uses of coconut, health benefits and so much more.
