Chocolate Almond CAke Balls
To make your Coconut Dahl heat a splash of oil in a large sauce pan.
Fry off the dry mix for a couple of mins ( please note the onion and garlic powder make have become solid but this will not effect the quality of your meal).
Once fragrant add 3 cups of vege stock ( any stock will do) , 400ml of coconut cream, 1 tin of chopped tomatoes or 4-6 diced tomatoes. Cook for approx 30- 40mins.
Season with salt and pepper.
Serve on its own or with a side of rice.
We like to garnish our Dahl with toasted coconut and fresh raita.
To make raita mix together plain or coconut , diced cucumber, chopped mint , salt and pepper.
Approx 5 servings.
This gets better with age and makes for amazing left overs!!
To make your cake balls pour the jar of dry ingredients into a bowl.
Add in 3 T melted coconut oil & 3T coconut cream then mix to combine. At this point have a taste and if you would like them sweeter add in 1T liquid sugar ( maple syrup, rice bran , agave etc) mix again then roll into small balls. if you want to be a little bit fancy top with melted chocolate and a roasted almond.
Pop into the fridge to set for approx 30 mins.
These are best stored in the fridge but will be fine to pop them in your lunch box .
To make your banana bread pour your dry mix into big mixing bowl , add 4 small mashed banana, 3 eggs, 150ml warm milk , 125g melted butter- you could add 1/4 c of choc chips of chopped walnuts at this point if you like. Mix well with an egg beater.Pour mixture into a lined loaf tin. Top with more chopped walnuts if using then bake in oven 180c for approx. 30- 40 minutes or until skewer comes out clean- if in doubt take your loaf out earlier rather than later. Remove from oven, cool, slice and enjoy with butter or cream cheese.
Banana flour is made of green bananas that are dried and ground. Banana flour is a great grain free alternative that is suitable for paleo and low sugar diets. It goes well in sweet or savoury dishes -typically you can sub 1 cup of wheat flour for 3/4 cup banana flour.
The final products are slightly denser compared to using wheat flour but I like that as they hold together better.
