  • I love dipping my toast in egg yolk

    One thing I've missed since going primal is dipping my toast in the yolk of a fried egg. Yesterday I made bread out of coconut flour. Guess what I had for breakfast this morning.

    I used a 4.5" x 8.5" loaf pan. The bread doesn't raise much so I ended up with a loaf about 1.5" high. Figure on about 16 slices per loaf.

    3/4 cup coconut flour
    1 tablespoon baking powder
    6 eggs
    3/4 cup of butter.

    Add the baking soda to the coconut flour and mix together. (While you are doing this melt the butter in a sauce pan.)
    add the 6 eggs and butter. Mix until ingredients are well blended without lumps.

    This produced a rather dry mixture. Place in a greased loaf pan.

    Bake in oven at 350 F. for about 40 minutes.

    Once it has cooled a bit remove from pan and then hide it on your family members.

    I haven't done all the nutrition calculations but an average slice is as follows:

    calories 56
    Carbs 4.71 g.
    Sodium 100 mg

      That was one of my great loves as well. I've learned to just enjoy the yolk without bread, but I will try this. Thanks!

                I missed toast soldiers too. I like to make coco flour biscuits in a muffin top pan. I find it holds up better than when I made bread. Super portable and tasty plain or with butter. They freeze well and can be popped in the toaster for a just baked taste.



                These are based on Bruce Fife's coco flour drop biscuits made without honey and with garlic powder and some shredded sharp cheddar added.

                  i missed that at first too, but i figured why should dry bland toast get all the action? my steak has been missing out for too long on the creamy goodness of egg yolks, i do the same thing with hamburger pattys, had that for breakfast today three hamburger pattys and four fried eggs with a bas. and worst comes to worst i'm never ashamed to lick egg yolk off my plate be it in public or my house.

                      Wait, you can heat these up straight from frozen? Holy crap I love the sound of that, I would love to be able to make a couple sheets of those things and pop em out for a specific meal as needed.

                      Because I will go buy a muffin top pan -today- if that's the case.

                        I make these drop biscuits as well (the cheese recipe, sometimes with green onions and jalapenos), and simply drop them onto parchment. No need to wash a muffin pan.

                        I will try sausage biscuits next, but haven't found a gravy recipe that I like.

                          Alright I made these on a baking sheet last night and just formed them into nice patty shapes.

                          I used:
                          6 eggs
                          1 stick of butter
                          1/2 tsp baking powder
                          3/4 cup coconut flour
                          (cinnamon)
                          (almond extract)

                          They have a nice flavor but they were somewhat dry. I am not sure what else to add to help that yet.

                          However, this morning I toasted one and then dipped it in a coffee/coconut milk mixture and it was absolutely delicious.

                          Tomorrow I will be dipping them in eggwash and making french toast and top them with a coconut milk / dark chocolate sauce. For breakfast. Awesome.

                          I think that these are going to be best with some fruit on top or some kind of added liquid, because I just can't see the dryness being eliminated from this recipe easily.

                            @Rivvin: I didn't find them that dry. I wonder if cooking in a pan instead of on the cookie sheet helped keep some of the moisture in.

                            I like the above mentioned idea of using a muffin pan too.
