  1. 1/2 cup sifted organic coconut flour
  2. 2/3 cup of solidified plus + 1 Tbls of organic cold pressed extra virgin coconut oil- melted - measure it when it is solid.
  3. 2 Tbls of organic coconut butter (mine was crumbly which added nice little pieces in the baked product) If yours is soft even better! If you don't have coconut butter-you could use a nut spread instead.

  6. 1/4 cup of finely chopped pecans
  7. 2 Tbls of Raw organic Cacao powder
  8. 2 soft pitted dates-chopped

  10. 6 large free range eggs
  11. 1/2 tsp baking powder
  12. Coconut oil for greasing
  1. Preheat oven at 180 degrees (356 F)
  2. In a large bowl whisk together the eggs, coconut oil, honey, vanilla, dates, Cacao powder, coconut butter and salt.
  3. Combine the coconut flour, pecans and baking powder and whisk these dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until they are combined.
  4. Grease a muffin tray and fill muffin holes with batter half way.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes and remove from the muffin tray to cool.
  6. Yum yum yum
