Instructions
  1. Whip the eggs using a high-powered blender (or whip by hand in a large bowl). Add the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth. Pour into a greased cake pan.
  2. Bake at 325°F until a fork comes out clean, approximately 30 minutes for the square cake or 25 minutes for two smaller rounds.
  3. Cool before decorating. Top with coconut whipped cream, strawberries, and pretty flowers.
Recipe Notes

*Make your own beans—they taste even better! Soak 2/3 cup of beans overnight, rinse well, and cook according to the instructions on the package. Butter beans or white navy beans taste the best.

I distinctly remember enjoying my mom’s cottage cheese pancakes while growing up. This recipe is an adaptation substituting arrowroot starch in place of wheat flour. After playing around with the recipe, here is what I came up with. These pancakes make a great protein-rich breakfast choice.

Coconut oil, in my opinion, is one of the healthiest oils for our kids’ bodies. For starters, coconut oil balances blood sugar levels, clears up any unwanted pathogens, creates the environment for focused learning, and keeps them at a good body weight.

Instructions
  1. In a wok or fry pan (with a lid), melt coconut oil on medium/high heat. Add about ¼ tsp of salt.
  2. Place a few kernels of popcorn in pan and cover with lid. Wait for popping sound, then add remainder of popcorn. Shake with lid slightly open to allow some heat to escape (important). Be careful not to burn. Place in a bowl and add butter.
  3. Top with Red Star nutritional yeast or ground flax seeds for a nutty flavour. Add in more salt too (great for improving digestion).
