Black Bean Mini Muffins& Coconut Flour Cookie Dough

Hi Guys!

I am excited to share this post with you! I came up with these Black Bean Mini Muffins, added it to a bowl of my Coconut Flour Protein Cookie Dough & it was a treat! A healthy treat too 🙂

I love Bob’s Red Mill Products & I use their Coconut Flour for many of my recipes. I was so excited when they shared my recipe on their site!

Coconut flour is awesome!

  • It is made from ground & dried coconut meat. Once the outer green husk of a coconut is removed, what remains inside is the rich, inner white lining which is the coconut meat.
  • It is not actually “flour” in the way we normally think of it, in that it contains zero grains, zero nuts,  & is made completely of pure coconut.
  • It is high in fiber, protein, & healthy fats.
  • Free from wheat & other grains.
  • Low in sugar, digestible carbs & calories, & has a low score on the glycemic index.
