I felt much better yesterday and did a little experimenting in the kitchen. Since it was National Cookie Day – I figured I’d do a little cookie creation using coconut flour.
These cookies turned out magical! Their super low in calories with hardly any fat, carbs or sugar in them! Their thick, soft and gooey from the melted chocolate chips and are sort of like eating small little pancakes. They taste best warm so enjoy them right off the pan or heat them in the microwave for 8-10 seconds.
These cookies are made on the stove top so the recipe takes 10 minutes from start to finish!
- 1 egg
- 2 egg whites
- 1 tbsp of melted coconut oil
- 2 tbsp. of coconut flour
- 1/2 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 scoop of chocolate casein powder
- 2 packets of stevia
- 1 tbsp of mini dark chocolate chips
Add in all other ingredients (except chocolate chips) in stir together until well blended.
Fold in dark chocolate chips.
Warm a non-stick frying pan over medium heat and spray with cooking oil. Roll dough into small cookies with your hands. They will stay the same shape in the pan. Place cookies in the pan and cook on each side for approximately 2-3 minutes on each side.

I woke up with a craving for something delicious & sweet so coconut flour pancakes made a come back for breakfast!
It seems I tend to do salads for lunch, huh? While yesterday on top of my salad went, turkey meatballs (bought from Costco and chopped up so that it seems like I get more bang for my buck! ), marinated artichokes, jalapenos, 1/2 whole wheat pita, fat free feta cheese and some light Italian dressing.
I hadn’t made tostadas in awhile so that’s what we had for dinner last night! I used a whole wheat pita that I split in half and crisped up for shells and then topped my shells with homemade pinto beans, sliced up chicken breast, salsa, fat free feta cheese, jalapenos and lettuce.
Question: What do you eat for lunch during the week?
