Japa-Huevos Rancheros and Coconut Carob Cookies

 My first use of an entire egg (access to Canadian free range organic grain fed) in a while inspired me to do a Japanese Huevos Rancheros proper. Stoked on it!
Thank you to all of these epic farmer's market goodies! And discovering a quality cheap Seaweed Salad available at costco.
  • Seaweed
  • Steamed Squash w/ Sesame Oil
  • Heirloom Tomato
  • 1 Egg+ 3 Egg Whites cooked in Coconut Oil
  • Sautéed Fennel in Coconut Oil
  • Cashews
  • Rainbow Gomasio
  • Wakame Seaweed Salad
  • Nutritional Yeast
  • Grass Fed Beef Jerky
Using coconut oil in the pan = prime time! And the jerky bits acted just like bacon! Got my alternative cheese with yeast and plenty of Japanese flavorings make this dish all time! Definitely worth repeating.
Finally got around to making another buckwheat bake! I used what I had and was too lazy/interested in finding out what happens when you just use ungrinded buckwheat. It made for extra crunchiness!
 I went with a Tropical Coconut-Vanilla-Blueberry flavoring and was successful with all three! Just need to get the texture down a bit more. (Vanilla whey, Blueberries, Egg, Coconut Flour, Pecans, Dried Pineapple)
With Coconut / Homemade Cinnamon Almond Butter
I got pretty into it at the end. It tasted like vanilla-coconut-blueberry-almond-radness. The vanilla whey protein and whole egg combo made kind of a burndt vanilla sugar effect, like the burndt sugar ice cream from cows :) yum.
 The true question for these is what did I use because there's pretty much not a single normal chocolate chip cookie ingredient.
  • 2T Coconut Flour
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Sea Salt
  • 1 Scoop Vanilla Whey
  • 2T Shredded Coconut
  • 18g Agave Nectar
  • 1/3c Coconut Oil (cooled)
  • 2 Chia Eggs (1/4c Chia Seeds, 1/2c Water)
  • 1/4c Carob Chips
I went with whey protein added to some to see which came out better (it was the yellow whey protein ones!) 25 minutes at 350º F.
They actually don't break apart at all (chia seed magic), super chewy almost gummy like.  They aren't airy at all (no baking soda available) but tons of coconut flavor with a bit of crunch from the coconut/seeds and the kick of sea salt makes it. Carob is always delicious as well.
