Coconut Flour Pumpkin Bar

Fall is all abt pumpkin, isn’t it ? Well , may be not. Pumpkin bars using coconut flour turned out good. Found recipe on YouTube and I think channel was clean and delicious or something like that.

Cooking with good ingredients is good. I used organic coconut flour and organic maple syrup. Recipe is so simple :

1 can 15oz pumpkin purée. Nothing added to it .

3/4th cup coconut flour, 1/2 cup maple syrup, 2 eggs , 1/4 cup almond milk (I used regular milk), pumpkin spice, cinnamon powder , pinch of salt. And 1/2 tsp baking powder.

Mix everything together. Add some chocolate cups and nuts .

Bake at 350 degree Fahrenheit for 40-45 minutes.

They were mildly sweet so I topped it with little maple syrup while eating .

Gluten Free Kodo Millet

In india , we use lot of wheat flour and eat roti, Paratha everyday. Growing up, always heard old ppl wanting to eat jowar millet roti since it’s easy to digest and they tried to get away from wheat. This was before we all learn abt gluten.

Kodo millet is available in india , Indian stores easily. Made with vegetables and added some biryani powder . Instant pot cooked in 7 minutes.

Are you including millet in your diet ? Or waiting for doctor to tell you ?

Gluten Free Halwa

Rajgira or Amranth flour is gluten free and rich in calcium. We use it during fasting days . It’s very quick to make. If you like to include different grain , seeds in diet then try this . If you are Indian , this is a good sweet to break the wheat , rice routine .

Recipe is simple. You can use coconut oil or ghee or unsalted butter . Traditionally we make it using ghee.

For 1 cup flour , use 1/3 cup ghee and 1/2 cup sugar. I use raw sugar. And 2 cup warm or boiling water .

Heat ghee , roast flour for few minutes until you smell it or color is changed little bit.

Add water and it will be quickly absorbed,

Add sugar and cook for a minute or two.

Garnish with cardamom powder, nuts if you like.

Eat warm. So make, eat and be done . No storing. Make just enough. You can just have this as a meal lunch or dinner.

Apple Almond Flour

Saw this recipe on you tube y’day and I had to make it. It was from Nisha Madhulika. Changed recipe little bit with what I had.

Shredded 1 gala apple . Heat ghee or coconut oil and roast apple for few minutes. Add raw sugar.

Add almond flour and after a minute or 2 , frozen shredded coconut that was thawed . You can use any shredded coconut you have . It makes it nice chewy . Cook until it forms like mass . It will be done in few minutes.

Spread some ghee , coconut oil on a dish and spread mixture. Let it cool down and keep it in fridge .

Came out very tasty. You can garnish with more nuts , add cardamom powder.

Almond Flour Upma

Do you like to use Almond flour ? This upma turned our pretty tasty. Make it just the way you make rava upma.

From my last almond Halwa experiment I learned this flour can give little too smooth texture. So what I did was , added 1 tsp of rava to get grainy texture . Even if you skip rava it will be ok if you add urad dal in tadka. It will give crunch.

Try it out. Like me try small quantity first time and see how you like it . Gets done in no time . Roast almond flour for like 2 mins .

Enjoy!
