How to Make Whole Wheat Sourdough Bread from Farmhouse on Boone. You’ll need bread for all your breakfast toasts, and sourdough is a healthy option!
Fluffy Coconut Flour Pancakes via Girl Versus Dough. In her post Stephanie shares tips to make the best coconut flour pancakes!
Grain Free Waffles via Fit Foodie Finds. Lee says: “Looking for super simple gluten free waffles that taste like the real deal? You are going to swoon over these almond flour waffles made with a coconut flour + almond flour base. We topped ours with a homemade strawberry chia compote!” Yum!
Coconut Oil French Toast via Real Food with Jessica. Jessica suggest that you can spread this French toast with almond butter and jelly. Wow.
3 Ingredient Coconut Oil Biscuits via Gimme Some Oven. Use these biscuits for Biscuits and Gravy for a wonderful morning treat. Or spread with butter and jam and serve with scrambled eggs!
Low Carb Chocolate Coconut Smoothie via Keto Diet App. If you’re cutting back on carbs, this smoothie is for you! I would personally sub regular milk/cream, and maybe throw in a quarter of a banana for sweetness.
Superfood Breakfast Cookies via Wife Mama Foodie. These cookies are free of gluten and refined sugar!
Paleo Cinnamon Rolls via Paleo Running Mama. These cinnamon rolls are made with a one-bowl batter and are soft and chewy on the inside, with a chewy crust on the outside!
Dinner Coconut Oil Recipes
One Pan Thai Coconut Yellow Curry Chicken & Rice via Ambitious Kitchen. This recipe is one-pot, so it’s great for cleanup!
Keto Fried Chicken Taco Shell via A Girl Worth Saving. How genius are these?! They use pork rinds and coconut flour for the crust, so they’re low-carb!
AIP Plantain Empanadas also via A Girl Worth Saving. You may think it’s weird to use plantains for the dough. But I’ve used them to make Savory Waffles before, and it totally works!
Keto Low Carb Beef and Broccoli via Noshtastic. Throw the beef in a marinade an hour before you plan on eating. Then you’ve got a healthy, low-carb supper! If you’re not low-carb you can always serve with a bowl of rice.
Paleo Swedish Meatballs via 40 Aprons. These meatballs are Whole30 Compliant. You can serve them over mashed potatoes.
Paleo Coconut Curry Zoodle Soup also via 40 Aprons. You could always sub rice noodles if you’re not Paleo or low-carb.
Thai Chicken Coconut Curry via Avery Cooks. I love that this recipe calls for spinach – great way to get your greens in!
Coconut Shrimp via Paleo Grubs. These shrimp are protein-rich, low carb, and fried in coconut oil.
Jamaican Veggie Patties via 101 Cookbooks. The filling has a combination of ingredients that’s a bit different from things I’ve tried. So it’s quite intriguing to me! I don’t know if it’s authentic, but you could throw in some ground beef or chicken to make them heartier.
Carrot Coconut Soup via Fifteen Spatulas. This soup has jalapenos, carrots, and coconut milk. Mmmmm…Also, you could totally add chicken to make this more of a main course.
Coconut Oil Fried Peanut Chicken via The Endless Meal. This chicken gets coated in peanuts and panko breadcrumbs. Then it’s fried in coconut oil, and you can dip it in a Thai honey butter. Sounds amazing.
Side Dish Coconut Oil Recipes
Coconut Oil Roasted Potatoes via yours truly – guest post on The Pioneer Woman’s blog. This is my all-time favorite way to serve potatoes. The bottoms are all crispy and delicious. These taste like French fries!

Quick note: I would probably cut back on the sugar in some of these recipes and substitute sucanat, maple syrup, honey, or coconut sugar. But that’s just my personal preference.
Homemade Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups via Yours Truly. These are WAY better than store-bought PB cups, IMO.
