Servings: 6
Preparation Time:  25-30 minutes



  • 1/2 cup yellow onion chopped (1/2 inch)
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 1/2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons cumin
  • 1/2 coconut cream concentrate
  • 12 cups your favorite veggie (I have used sweet potato, asparagus, zucchini, corn, all have been delicious…experiment and share how it turned out!)
  • 2 small potatoes, cubed 1/2 inch
  • 1 cup carrots, sliced
  • 1/2 cup peas
  • 1/2 cup broccoli
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour (or as needed to thicken)


Mix almond and coconut flour with the salt, then slowly fold in softened butter until it crumbles.  Stir in water by the tablespoon and mix dough thoroughly by hand.  Once dough is mixed, divide in half and roll into balls.  Cover or wrap balls and put in fridge.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees ºF.
Saute onions in coconut oil until they become translucent.  Heat vegetable broth in a medium pot and bring to a boil.  Once boiling add cumin and lower head to medium.  Add coconut cream concentrate.  Add vegetables to mixture and let simmer 15 minutes stirring frequently.

While mixture is simmering take 1/2 the dough and push down into the dish fairly thin and up the sides covering the dish.  Roll out remaining dough to cover top and set aside.  Fill the dish with rolled out dough making sure to fill any cracks.

Once mixture has simmered and dough is rolled out add coconut flour to mixture to thicken the liquid.  Pour mixture into dish.  Take rolled top and lay over dish.  If some cracks or falls apart that’s ok just press it back together and fill in cracks.  Press edges together.  Place in oven for 20-30 minutes or until dough is golden brown around edges.


*You can grind your own almond flour by placing whole almonds in a blender/food processor and blending until you get a fine meal.

  • If you want to make this recipe completely vegan just substitute earth balance for butter.  Also coconut oil may work, but I haven’t tried it yet.
  • I use frozen broccoli florets and frozen peas to save time and it turns out great.

Chunky-Monkey Pumpkin Muffins

Chunky-Monkey Pumpkin Muffins

Servings: 48-60 Muffins
Preparation Time: 20 minutes

You may say, “Whoa! That’s a lot of muffins!” but I say, “Who wants to store ½ a can of pumpkin? These high protein, GF, dairy-free, DELICIOUS, moist, kid-approved muffins are GREAT for breakfast, snacks, dessert, or dinner rolls. They store well in the fridge for days, and reheat well in the toaster oven. You can also store them on the counter for a couple of days! I’m sure they’d freeze well, though I haven’t tried that- they don’t last long enough! Lastly, you can keep the prepared batter for up to two days in the fridge and make a smaller amount of muffins fresh daily- pumpkin muffins one day, and chocolatey chunky-monkey delights the next!

Optional Chunky-Monkey Indulgences:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees ºF.

Place all of the dry ingredients into a standing mixer and blend thoroughly.

Place bananas, pumpkin and eggs into a blender and blend thoroughly. Melt coconut oil and honey together in a small pan. Add to the blender and blend thoroughly. Add the wet ingredients from the blender to the mixer and mix all ingredients together thoroughly.

These muffins taste like Fall muffins as is, but they taste like chocolate delights when you add some of the Optional Chunky-Monkey goodies!! Once whatever you want is mixed all up, use a large eating spoon and place heaping spoonfuls into large muffin baking cups.

Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes. Remove and place on cooling rack to cool and store, or eat right away with some grass-fed butter!


*If you want to lower the sugar, sub more bananas for the amount of honey you want to replace.

The best bananas to use are those that have really gotten spotted! When they get to that point and you’re not ready to use them YET, you can peel them, place them into a baggie and put them into either the freezer or fridge. In the fridge, they can last up to 4 or 5 days! The sugary liquid will separate, but they are still fine to bake with! In the freezer, they can be used for awesome banana ice cream!
