Coconut Oil Biscuits

    Coconut Oil Biscuits
    Dairy Free, GF, Vegan
    Happily serves 12


    2 cups self-rising GF flour
    1/4 cup coconut oil (solid, not melted)
    3/4 cup Non Dairy Milk

    Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
    Add self-rising GF flour and coconut oil to a mixing bowl, use a pastry cutter or fork to cut the coconut oil into the flour until the mixture is like fine crumbs.
    Stir in the milk until mixture forms a soft dough and no longer sticks to the sides of the bowl.
    Knead the mixture until combined, but be careful not to over-knead.
    Turn the dough out onto a cutting board that has been lightly dusted with flour.
    Gently roll the dough out until it reaches a 1/2-inch thickness.
    Use a biscuit cutter to cut out the biscuits, and transfer to a baking sheet.
    Bake for 10 minutes, or until the biscuits have risen and ever so slightly begin to brown on top.
    Remove and serve immediately.

    Sugar Cookies

      Vegan, Gluten Free
      Happily Serves 24


      1/2 Cup Vegan butter or butter
      2/3 Cup Monk Fruit
      1 tsp Vanilla extract
      3 Tbsp Chickpea brine or flax egg, or 1 egg
      3/4 tsp baking powder
      1/4 tsp Himalayan Sea salt
      1 2/3 Cups gluten free flour
      2/3 Cup Almond flour
      1/3 Cup Arrowroot
      1 TBSP Almond or nut milk

      FROSTING (optional)
      1/2 Cup vegan butter
      1 1/2 – 2 cups sifted powdered sugar
      1/4 tsp vanilla extract
      1-2 TBSP Almond or nut milk

      Preheat oven to 375 and line baking sheets with parchment paper OR spray with coconut oil spray.
      Add softened vegan butter (not melted or cold) to a mixing bowl and beat/whisk until creamy and smooth.
      Add monk fruit and mix on medium speed until fluffy
      Then add chickpea brine (or other egg substitute) and vanilla and mix again.
      Add baking powder and sea salt and blend well
      Then add gluten free flour blend, almond flour, and arrowroot and mix on low until the ingredients are combined.
      Add almond milk and stir.

      The dough should be thick, moldable and a little difficult to mix at this point. If too soft, continue adding a mixture of gluten free flour blend, almond flour, and arrowroot until a thick, moldable dough is formed. If too thick, thin with a bit more almond milk.

      Transfer dough to the refrigerator and chill for 15 minutes. Once chilled, use a spoonful of about 11/2 TBSP of dough and roll into balls – the dough will still be soft. Place on parchment-lined baking sheets and press down gently with the back or your spoon to smash slightly.
      Or you may roll out the dough on a well-floured surface until about 1/4-inch thick and use cookie cutters dipped in flour before pressing into the dough. Use a floured spatula to gently scoop onto baking sheets.

      Let the dough rest at room temperature for 30 minutes before scooping and baking

      Bake cookies for about 10-12 minutes or until the cookies appear fluffy.
      Cool on baking sheet for 10 minutes.

      To make frosting, add softened vegan butter to a mixing bowl and whisk/beat until soft.
      Sift in powdered sugar in small amounts and mix, add the vanilla and whisk.
      Continue adding powdered sugar until you have spreadable frosting.

      Let the dough rest at room temperature for 30 minutes before scooping and baking.

          Cauliflower Pizza Crust

            Cauliflower Crust Pizza



            • 1 small to medium sized head of cauliflower – should yield 2 to 3 cups once processed
            • ¼ cup shredded Parmesan cheese, or vegan cheese
            • ¼ cup mozzarella cheese or vegan cheese
            • 1 egg or 1 flax egg
            • ¼ teaspoon salt
            • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
            • ½ teaspoon basil or rosemary
            • ½ teaspoon oregano

            Optional Toppings:

            • 1 cup Organic marinara sauce
            • 1-2 cups vegan Organic mozzarella cheese
            1. Preheat oven to 500 degrees F.
            2. Remove the stems from the cauliflower and cut into chunks, place the cauliflower into a food processor, pulse it until it resembles the texture of rice. If you don’t have a food processor, you can use a cheese grater or chop it very finely.
            3. Place the cauliflower in a kitchen towel and squeeze all the liquid out of it. Be sure to squeeze as much liquid as possible!!! Very important!
            4. Combine the cooked cauliflower, egg or flax egg, garlic, cheese, and seasonings. Stir until a dough texture forms. Spread the cauliflower mixture out onto lightly greased parchment paper or a pizza pan in the shape of a pizza crust.
            5. Bake the crust for approximately 10-15 minutes (depending on your oven), or until the crust is golden and crispy. After the crust is golden remove it from the oven and add your toppings.
            6. Place the pizza back in the oven but this time turn on the broiler, bake for about 2-5 minutes until the cheese melts. be sure to keep an eye on it because the broiler can burn the cheese quickly.
            7. Make sure you add love!  Slice and serve smiles!
