So I always crave desserts and baking.
This is not always the healthiest option when baking things.
I decided to look up some good recipes that don't include sugar!
And yes I know it is possible because I have made a few recipes without sugar.
With the banana in this recipe it makes it sweet!
Yes there is natural sugars in this recipe but that is totally okay with me so that I don't have all that refined sugar in my foods :)
Enjoy this nice little treat and try not to eat them all at once!
1/4 cup coconut flour
1 Tbsp coconut oil
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Coconut flakes for topping
-Preheat oven to 350.
-Smash banana and coconut oil together.
-Add egg and vanilla extract and mix well.
-Add coconut flour and mix well until dough forms.
-Pinch off some to make a small ball and put on a cookie sheet with parchment paper or greased pan. (Makes about 12 smallish balls, you can press down to make more of a cookie shape also, they don't change shape much).
-Top with shredded coconut.
-Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes (mine took about 17 though).
-Cool and enjoy!
I got this recipe idea from this amazing website HERE
So this is one of the best ketchups I have ever made.
Considering it's only the second time I have made ketchup, I would say this is the perfect recipe.
I decided to make my own ketchup because my boyfriend and I LOVE our ketchup. We love it with our potatoes, sweet potatoes, chicken, ground turkey, eggs, and lots of other things but I just feel like we eat ketchup every day. Instead of buying it from the stores and getting preservatives and other crap inside I know exactly what went into my ketchup.
Be careful not to eat it straight out of the sauce pan because it might be hot, just blow on it first...that's what I did :)
I got this recipe from here. I tweaked it a tiny bit but not by much.
1 1/2 6 oz containers tomato paste (You can use two cans also, but I only had 1 1/2, it will just make it more tomato-y and that is okay!)
1/4 cup honey
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup water (I ended up adding another splash of water once it was boiling)
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp garlic powder (more for taste)
1. Using a food processor, pulse the onion until it is in small pieces.
2. Add the apple cider vinegar to the food processor and pulse until pureed or finely smooth (this is so you don't have chunks in the ketchup. Adding the apple cider vinegar will help puree the onion)
3. Add all ingredients (tomato paste, honey, apple cider vinegar, onion, water, sea salt, garlic powder) in a sauce pan, stir well, and bring to a boil.
4. Reduce to a simmer and stir every few minutes. Simmer for about 15-20 minutes. This will allow the ketchup to thicken and all the flavors to combine for a flavor blasting ketchup!
5. Let the ketchup cool and transfer into a glass bottle (I reused an Annie's BBQ Sauce jar and it filled it completely)
6. Refrigerate! I am not sure how long this will last but I am guessing a few weeks since there is no preservatives in it and it won't last forever.
