"Look Ma--No Grains!" Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies and Blueberry Coconut Muffins

Got coconut flour? Going paleo-ish, or just GF? Then these recipes are for you.

Coconut Choc. Chip Cookies
1 c. sifted coconut flour
1/2 c. butter, melted (I used coconut oil)
1 c. brown sugar (I used Sucanat)
4 eggs
1/2 t. vanilla
1/8 t. salt (I omitted this)
1 1/2 c. grated or flaked coconut
3/4 c. chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375. Mix together butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla, and salt. Stir in coconut, chocolate chips, and coconut flour. Drop batter in spoon-sized mounds 1" apart on greased cookie sheet, and bake for 14-15 mins. Cool slightly before removing from cookie sheet. Makes about 2 dozen cookies.

Blueberry Coconut Muffins
1/4 c. sifted coconut flour
3 T. melted butter or coconut oil
3 eggs
3 T. honey
1/4 t. salt
1/4 t. vanilla
1/8 t. almond extract
1/4 t. baking powder
1/2 c. fresh blueberries

Preheat oven to 400. Blend together eggs, butter or oil, salt, and vanilla. Combine coconut flour with baking powder, and thoroughly mix until there are no lumps. Fold flour/baking powder combo and DRY blueberries into batter (if rinsed, dry before adding). Pour batter into greased muffin cups and bake for 16-18 mins. Makes 6 muffins--double batter recipe for 12.
