Coconut Flour Muffins

 Our trail for coconut has been going - eh - it's going.  I'm not sure what to think.  Cutie Pie is in the middle of a pretty bad case of constipation which we've seen with a couple other questionable foods.  I'm not sure if it is the eggs or the coconut, but just to be sure I whipped up some coconut flour muffins.  That stuff is PACKED with fiber so if anything is going to help her go, then coconut muffins will!   I found a couple recipes, tweeked them to fit our needs and came up with this:

Coconut Flour Muffins
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 + 1/8 cup sugar
1/2 t baking powder (I use one that contains potato starch instead of corn starch)
1/4 t salt
6 eggs
4 T coconut oil (works best if it is melted)

Mix ingredients.  If it is too thick you can add a tablespoon or two of water/milk.
Bake at 350 for 18-20 minutes.  
Makes 12 muffins

They were actually really tasty!  They had a sort of egg-y taste and left a sweet coconut-y aftertaste.  Cutie Pie wasn't thrilled, but she isn't thrilled about most food.  Of course, she LOVED the cupcake paper.  That was apparently super delicious.
