GRAIN FREE COCONUT CRACK a highly addictive, sticky, sweet, coconut bark.
I must warn you. I call this COCONUT CRACK for a reason. Because it’s literally crack. Ok, not literally. Figuratively? It’s actually just a healthy person’s form of crack. Crack for all the health addicts, if you will.
Apart from the addictive qualities of this coconut crack recipe, it’s also very sticky (shout out all the honey), so it’s hard to multi-task while eating this — I say this because typically whenever I am eating, I am also doing something else. Like writing this blog post. However writing this blog post and eating coconut crack = sticky fingers and sticky keyboard keys. But I digress.
Coconut crack is comprised of a few simple ingredients and makes for a healthy-ish (yes, there’s a lot of honey) snack on-the-go, a perfect addition to yogurt, or the perfect morning coffee companion. I’m all about coffee companions because there is nothing better than a cup of coffee, unless it’s a cup of coffee that has a snack sitting beside it.
Coconut crack is like a hybrid of grain free granola, brittle and bark all in one. It’s also a very quick recipe, from start to finish, this won’t take you very long at all so you can do it at any time of the day essentially, even when you are in a rush. Finally, I find this to be the perfect treat to give to friends and family if you’re invited over for dinner, or even if you invite yourself over, however you roll, it’s always nice to show up with a goodie in hand. And this always does the trick! My friends and family who are non-SCD’ers, let alone healthy eaters, enjoy coconut crack and find it just as addictive as my fellow grain free’ers. So you know it’s real.
- 2 cups of unsweetened coconut flakes
- 1 cup of raw pumpkin seeds
- 1/2 cup of honey
- 1 tsp of cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp of nutmeg
- 1 egg white
- 1 cup of raisins
- mix your unsweetened, coconut flakes with the pumpkin seeds and raisins in one large bowl.
- add your spices (cinnamon and nutmeg) and cover the coconut, seeds and raisins.
- coat the mixture in egg white and honey– if your honey is very thick and might be difficult to mix, it can help to microwave your honey for 30 seconds so that it’s pure liquid, but it’s not necessary. ensure the mixture is well combined with the egg white and honey.
- spread out the mixture across a baking tray lined w parchment paper, and flatten. bake at 350 for 30 mins or so, until coconut flakes are all golden brown. allow to cool completely before you attempt to break up the coconut crack into solid chunks. store in the fridge or freezer.
