A Little Experiment: Orange Cherry Coconut Breakfast Bars with Bob’s Red Mill and a Giveaway!


I just loved science class! Something cool about looking at your specimens and putting together your hypothesis then jumping in to see if you were right. Well, this is just what I got to do thanks to Bob’s Red Mill!

The trusting folks over at Bob’s Red Mill sent me some coconut flour and asked me to experiment develop a recipe to share. Sure, no problem. This is an ingredient I had never used but always wanted to see how it substituted for other flours. So I chose to create a breakfast item.

My hypothesis: Using the coconut flour combined with a little extra liquid, would result in a moist but moist, cake like texture. I did a little research prior to using this flour and had read plenty of warnings about adding either extra liquid or extra eggs to prevent a dry crumbly result.

You can hop over to see the result of my experiment, Orange Cherry Coconut Breakfast Bars and try it for yourself!

And, they gave me a way YOU can do some experimenting of your own with a $50 Gift Card to use at either their store or online shop! WOW- what a treat! I am sure you could find plenty of ingredients to play around with.
