Coconut & Lime Loaf Recipe June 26 2018, 0 Comments
Coconut & Lime Loaf with Lime Icing
My good friend Cristine from CWA gave me a recipe as a means to showcase our Coconut Sprinkles and to give our customers inspiration on ways to use them in their baking. I made it Dairy Free (you could also make it vegan by substituting eggs for chia seeds), and this Coconut & Lime Loaf still has that homemade-with-love authentic taste, and the blend of coconut and lime is delicious perfection!
Cristine bakes these in mini-loaf tins, making them perfect to slice and share.
1 1/2 cup SR flour
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup almond milk
1/2 cup Plain Coconut Sprinkles
1 Tablespoon Lime Rind
Lime Icing Ingredients:
1-2 cups of plain coconut yogurt
Juice of 1 lime
Beat the flour, sugar, oil, eggs and milk until sugar is dissolved. Add Coconut Chips and Lime Rind. Bake in moderate oven for approx 40 min.
Mix all icing ingredients together and spread on loaf when it’s cooled. Top with additional Coconut Sprinkles for decoration.
Did you make this Coconut Lime loaf? How'd you go? I'm currently experimenting to make this loaf dairy-free, substituting with Almond Milk and Coconut Oil.... stay tuned!
EDIT: I made the dairy-free changes and no longer use butter or dairy milk in my baking. The recipe is updated and is the exact one I use at the markets.

Homemade Fudge with Coconut Sprinkles. Vegan, Raw, and Paleo friendly! July 13 2015, 0 Comments
I have the BEST recipe for homemade fudge - it's Paleo and Vegan, healthy and delicious.
This is perfect to make for the unannounced guest ("Hey, can we pop in for a quick cuppa?") or last minute 'bring a plate to share' function.
Here it is:
BLITZ these items (I use my blender):
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup cacao powder (or cocoa powder)
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 cup walnuts
1 tbsp macadamia oil
2 pinches salt
When finished, stir through 50 grams of our COCONUT SPRINKLES. I prefer to use either Maple, Himalayan Salt, or Plain. But, if you prefer to add a bit of extra spice, use the Sweet Chilli.
Spread mix into a glass baking dish (I usually line mine with cling wrap or baking paper). Sprinkle COCONUT SPRINKLES on top.
Freeze 1 hour.
Get ready for the compliments - this is a super easy and quick recipe to make and is a guaranteed crowd pleaser!
