Notes about Recipes in this book

  • French toast casserole

    • WFPLCleanEating on May 08, 2016

      Surprisingly tasteless. A LOT of effort for something so uninteresting. Had to be doctored with salt, maple syrup, banana and pecan butter. -Rachel S-K

  • Slow-cooker beef chuck chili

    • Elissaqi on November 20, 2016

      Consider adding peppers, zucchini, corn. Added 1 spoon cocoa powder. Serve with tostada chips, cheddar cheese, cilantro. Excellent.

  • Braised chicken in artichoke-mushroom sauce

    • Larson on December 01, 2019

      Can cook w/o flour/honey. May need to reduce vinegar

  • Greek gyro pasta with lamb meatballs

    • WFPLCleanEating on April 29, 2016

      This was a recipe that was far better on the page than the plate. The lamb meatballs were OK, the cold raw zucchini noodles in a lemon and oil dressing were not a good accompaniment to warm meatballs and the tzatziki was nasty. I knew when making it that coconut yogurt and balsamic vinegar had no place in tsatziki but I usually like to try a recipe as written the first time. I have some leftover meatballs - I will have them with sautéed warm zucchini noodles and tsatziki made with Greek yogurt. - Jane

  • Banana mouse pancakes

    • hilarie on June 05, 2019

      Good flavor, but tough to flip neatly.

  • Trail mix granola bars

    • WFPLCleanEating on May 04, 2016

      Forgo the chocolate. It overpowers. Who knew almond butter, honey, coconut oil and vanilla melted in a pot could taste so good! I could have used that as a dessert sauce -- Yum!

  • Cinnamon-raisin coffee cake

    • lesleybelle on August 16, 2018

      I've adjusted this after several tries to reduce moisture/fats and decrease cooking time. Reduced coconut oil to 1 tablespoon, subbed 1/2 c of walnuts for raisins, did not include the swirl Cooked at 375 in silicon muffin dish for about 30 minutes.

  • Banana bread

    • Jacksmm1 on July 09, 2014

      Use medium bananas and perhaps less than 3. Use superfine ground almond flour - from Digestive Willness or Honeyville Farms

    • WFPLCleanEating on May 08, 2016

      We used house made ground almond meal and this may have made the difference in the recipe. It seemed very oily. Had we had a finer meal, perhaps the oil would have been absorbed. I'm willing to concede this this was a baker error as the bread otherwise tasted great. -Rachel S-K

  • Seven-layer bars

    • WFPLCleanEating on May 12, 2016

      This was a lot of work for a dessert that wasn't wonderful. If I was making 7-layer bars again I would use a conventional recipe though for anyone gluten or lactose intolerant it would be a good option. Making caramel with honey was not successful - it was quite runny . You would definitely have to be a coconut fan to make this recipe - it contains coconut milk, coconut flour, coconut oil, coconut butter and shredded coocnut. - Jane

    • WFPLCleanEating on May 13, 2016

      While I haven't looked at the recipe yet I was thinking I might try to make these myself, I thought they were really tasty - thank you for making them, Jane! - Sarah

  • Mint-chip ice cream

    • WFPLCleanEating on May 12, 2016

      This was very creamy considering it contains no dairy or eggs. The creaminess comes from coconut milk and avocados. I think it definitely needs the green coloring. The color before adding it was rather gray - not appetizing, A good ice cream for anyone who is lactose-intolerant or vegan. - Jane
