FROM MY KITCHEN TO YOURS...
Creamy Coconut Squares
A friend recently introduced me to this recipe, which uses coconut flour - something I had not tried before, but YUM! Coconut flour is a high fiber, high protein, gluten-free, not to mention tasty alternative to wheat or other flour. It also calls for xylitol in place of sugar, a more more healthful alternative. Look in your local health food store for ingredients.
1 tbsp. coconut oil 1 8 oz. package cream cheese 1 cube butter (1/4 lb.) 4 large eggs 2 1/2 tsp. vanilla 1 cup coconut flour 1/2 cup xylitol Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees, grease 11 X 7 pan with coconut oil. Cream butter, cream cheese and eggs - add remaining ingredients until well blended. Pour batter into greased pan, bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Makes 24.
