Coconut Flour Mug Cake Showdown Comparison

The Ultimate Coconut Flour Guide: Which Coconut Flour Is Best For Baking? 7 Coconut Flours Compared

I love coconut flour. I bake with it as often as I can and eat it at least once every day. Some people would call me obsessed. Low calorie, high protein, low carb, high fiber, this flour has amazing benefits! What’s not to love? I have tried my fair share of coconut flour recipes from other food bloggers.

I was amazed to find I had around 35 pounds of weight just in flour and another 20 pounds in spices. Continue reading

I love all things ginger. I was super excited to see Mrs. Glee’s Molasses Ginger Snap Cookie Mix arrive in my box of items from Mrs. Glee’s. I was in the mood to bake and immediately thought of making this mix as ginger snap cookies. I asked Alan if he liked ginger snaps and I was met with a resounding NO! I did not want to have the temptation of eating all of those cookies with no help, so I started the wheels turning in my head. Continue reading
