These cacao nibs cookies were created in attempt to try out oat flour that I finally was able to purchase. It is very fine flour unlike one I get by blending oats on high speed in my blender. Cookies smell amazingly because of all peanut butter in them. They are made with healthy coconut sugar and desiccated coconut, cassava flour. So they are gluten-free if you are sure that oats are processed in safe facility and totally vegan. To make them, you will need: 1 cup of oat flour, 1/2 cup cassava flour, 1/2 cup desiccated coconut, 1/2 cup peanut butter, 1/2 cup coconut sugar, 1/4 cup cacao nibs, 1/4 cup coconut oil, 2 tbsp of ground flax seed mixed with 3 tbsp of water (helps to bind cookies the way eggs normally do), 2 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1 teaspoon baking powder, pinch of salt.

Yeasted coffee cake with mango jam

You know a good recipe by just looking at it. Today’s one takes effort to make, but totally worths it. If you like working with dough, you will be charmed. It also requires a freshly prepared jam. You can choose jam that you like but as mangoes are in season now, I worked with them. I took 5 full cups of mangoes, 1 cup sugar and splash of lime juice. I boiled it to reduce the volume and then added 2 tbsp of chia seeds. The brioche dough according to recipe is more than enough. I used only half of it, so you can cut ingredients in half as well. There are 3/4 cups of water, 1 tbsp instant yeast, 3/4 cup butter, 1/2 tbsp salt, 4 eggs, 1/4 cup honey, 3 1/2 cups flour. The prepared dough should rest for 2 hours before rolling it in rounds.

Tangerine chocolate cake

This one is must-do! It is my first very successful try of marrying stevia and chocolate. I added very little, so I cannot feel the taste of stevia or sweetness, but the cake is amazingly delicious! My (slightly changed) ingredients: 125 gr powdered almonds, 75 gr cassava flour, 4 tangerines (each is 100 gr), boiled, 5 eggs, 50 gr cocoa powder (make sure to take roasted cocoa powder for rich flavour), 1/4 tbsp liquid stevia extract, 2 teaspoon baking powder. Baking at 180C for at least 30 minutes if you bake one cake. If you separate it into muffin holds, the time can be 15-20 minutes. It is rich chocolate and consists of lot of tangerines. It is very Christmasey baking. I found this recipe here https://dariasaveleva.com/mandarinovo-shokoladny-e-keksy-bez-muki/ The origin is in Russian. I changed sugar to stevia extract because I don’t add sugar to any baking that I like to …

You will need to prove yeast first. To make this, dissolve sugar in 1/4 cup very hot water, than add 1/2 cup lukewarm water and instant yeast. Please don’t add all the mixture to measured flour. I was surprised when I saw this direction in the original recipe, but it is so, I could see that even I added too much of this. Try to mix it little by little. The dough should be runnier than usual bread dough. Another thing that was strange in this recipe that the author suggest to dust …
