To Die For Coconut Cookies

‘Tis the season, so I thought I what a perfect time to revive some of my older Holiday recipes from the archives. If you like coconut macaroons you will love these cookies! Similar to a macaroon, but with the addition of cornflake crumbs, they are sweet and delicious and easily made gluten-free.

Coconut lovers… this is a must! With the holidays quickly approaching, I’m sure lots of you are busy baking so I am dedicating the rest of this week to skinny holiday sweets. 

This recipe was emailed to me a while ago by a woman who told me these were “to die for” hence the name. I held on to it for a while with intentions of trying it for the holidays and I was super pleased with the results–I think you will be too! For the cornflake crumbs, you can buy gluten-free crushed cornflakes in many supermarkets, but if you wish to make your own, just put them in the food processor and crush until very fine. If gluten free is an issue, check the labels on the cornflakes, not all are gf.

Sweet Honey Cornbread

Sweet Honey Cornbread

by Pam on December 11, 2012

This is seriously the very best cornbread I have EVER had. I found a recipe on The Gourmand Mom[1] for cornbread that is sweet, moist, and so delicious. I loved how quick and easy it was to make and how amazing it smelled while baking. My whole family gobbled up every last drop of this cornbread and my son told me that it was REALLY GOOD. I served this cornbread with the Black Bean Soup with Bacon[2] and the tossed salad with the Creamy Cilantro Dressing[3] for a comforting and tasty meal that my whole family enjoyed.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Coat a small 8×8 baking dish with canola cooking spray.

In a bowl, mix the flour, corn meal, baking powder, sugar, and salt together until well combined.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, honey, melted butter, and beaten eggs. Pour the flour mixture into the egg mixture and mix until they are just combined. Do not over mix. Fold in the corn kernels. Pour into the prepared baking dish.

Place into the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes, until a tester inserted in the middle comes out clean.

Allow the bread to cool for about 10 minutes before cutting and serving. Enjoy.

Toasted Coconut and Blueberry Muffins

Toasted Coconut and Blueberry Muffins

by Pam on April 9, 2013

I made these muffins for my kids and husband on Sunday morning. They were super quick and easy to make and they smelled amazing while they baked in the oven. These muffins were the perfect way to use up my tart blueberries that I had in the refrigerator. The kids ABSOLUTELY loved the muffins and so did my husband. They didn’t last long and the kids have already asked for another batch. I’d say that makes this recipe a keeper!

Preheat oven to 400 degrees and coat a 12 cup muffin tin with cooking spray.

Toast 1/2 cup of coconut. Place the coconut in a thin layer on a baking sheet. Place into the oven and watch very carefully so it doesn’t burn. Toss to brown evenly. Remove from the oven and let it cool.

Combine flours, baking powder, salt, and sugar together in a large bowl. Add the toasted coconut and combine.

Using an immersion blender, mix together the egg, butter, milk, and vanilla until well combined. Slowly pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix well. Fold the blueberries gently into the muffin batter.

Divide the batter among muffin cups (I only used 11 of the cups). Sprinkle the (un-toasted) coconut evenly over the top of each muffin.

Bake for 18-20 minutes or until a tester inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Cool for a few minutes in the muffin tin then remove from the tin and let them cool on a cooling rack. Enjoy.
