Tasted good but not anywhere near bread-like consistency. Came out more like cookies.

How much water do we need to bring to boil? Am I missing the amount?
Admin - Orissa
cajunchick, The standard ratio of water to rolled oats is 2:1. Double the amount of water depending on the amount of oats called for. :)

The comment for this oil is, it is best for deep frying. I noticed you sautéed the onions and green pepper in olive oil instead of the palm oil....wondering why you would not use it for all frying/sautéing.

Do you make face cream. If not should I use the oil? Also Does the coconut cream go on sale. I am 78 and on fixed income so I like to buy on sale. Thank you Colleen Russell

Colleen, Thank you for reaching out to us! Our coconut oil is packaged as dietary oil for food, however, many customers do use it as a skin or hair moisturizer.   Filipinos are well-known for their youthful appearance and soft skin, even though they live in a climate that exposes them to the sun’s rays year round. Coconut oil is their main dietary oil, and is also the main ingredient in their skin care products.   You may like to view our skin care products made with Organic Gold Label Virgin Coconut oil here:   Our skin care line was developed because we wanted to offer something with no chemical additives, something that would be good for your skin!   Tropical Traditions skin care line is full of great products that do not contain parabens or artificial chemicals. Our special emulsifying wax that combines the water and oils together is a proprietary blend and is not soy based. The palm stearic is a natural component of our Palm Oil. We feel that all of our skin care products are good for the skin and are compatible with the philosophy of our company, 'The closer to natural the better'.   We especially recommend our moisturizing creams and lotions for facial use, or you may simply use our Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil as the Filipinos traditionally do. Please visit this link for more information on our complete line of skin care products:     Yes, our Coconut Cream Concentrate goes on sale regularly, as well as our Coconut Oils, and Moisturizing Lotions and Creams!

Can I make this without the flax seeds? I need recipes that are grain free, nut and seed free. Thanks.

The coconut creme is great. I like this much better than any other coconut milk product that I have bought in the store.

Can I substitute almond milk for the coconut milk? And will adding different mushrooms (Portobella, etc.) affect the end result?

Here in Iraq they have Peanut Butter and Cream Cheese in big trays at the chow hall, so I get a scoop of each and mix to make a simple Peanut Butter Cheese cake...better than nothing! and better if partially frozen!

Your coconut oil pie crust link does not work.
Admin - Orissa
Shelia, thank you for letting us know that the link was down! The coconut oil pie crust link is live now. :)

Would it be possible to substitute the sugar with honey or stevia, and if so, how would I need to alter the recipe?

Grasshopper Bars View Comments (1)
When my husband and I started eating more healthy, we had to say good-bye to the best mint brownies you've ever had. These bars made me feel like I was eating them again! So easy. The only thing I would add is a tablespoon or two more of honey to each layer. They just weren't quite sweet enough for me.

Could you possibly use guar gum instead of the xantham gum?

Jimmy Eaton
how many carbs are in this and how much sugar?
Admin - Orissa
Jimmy, Thank you for your question. Since these recipes are user submitted and free to everyone, it would be extremely time consuming and difficult to draw up an accurate nutritional info chart for each and every one. There are many sites online that have nutritional info calculators you could use to try to get an approximate reading on. Hope that is helpful!

What is sprouted about this recipe?
Admin - Orissa
The flax seeds themselves are meant to be sprouted before using.

Personally, putting it in the oven isn't necessary. Seemed to cook through just fine on the stove. Really delicious and simple recipe.

Where's the mushroom?
Admin - Orissa
Sally, the recipe has been updated: 3/4 cup mushrooms, finely chopped.
Which mushroom and how many? I didn't see any mushroom mentioned. Sounds good and I would try if you could reprint it with the mushroom information. Do you mean the meat is shaped like a mushroom?
Admin - Orissa
Trisha, any kind of mushroom will work, depends on personal preference. The ingredient was missing originally when it was typed up. It is updated now. Use 3/4 cup mushrooms, finely chopped.

Lemon Rosemary and Yogurt Cake View Comments (2)
Hi! Thanks for the recipe :) I made it for my husband and his uncle for lunch today. I substituted sour cream for the yogurt because that is what was available and I used a third less of the honey. Very delicious and super moist! Thanks for posting your recipe.
Admin - Orissa
Thanks for sharing your variation, dinky! We're glad you enjoyed this recipe!

I love trying no-bake pies and I must say this one now sits in my top favorite list. Thank you for the recipe!
I love this pie! I'm trying to eat more healthily & this pie satisfies my sweet tooth, but I'm able to eat a small slice with some fresh fruit & be craving more or addictive quality at all. Blessings to the one who submitted it!

So glad to hear that, Ranae <3

Coconut Flour Chocolate Cake View Comments (1)
Night Owl Kitchen
Made this last night, substituted the sugar with granulated stevia. Think I'll add a dollop of sour cream to help add some extra moisture to the cake next time. Other than that very nice, rich chocolate flavor. Going to blog about this recipe soon.
Admin - Orissa
Sour cream sounds like a nice add, Night Owl Kitchen! Honey or maple syrup are also both very good, traditional sweeteners that can be used in place of granulated sugar. You might enjoy this article:

I eat Paleo , can you substitute the sugar for honey or maple syrup and the flour for coconut ?
Admin - Orissa
Diane, yes. Here is an article about How to Use Raw Honey in Place of Sugar in Baking: Here is an article about How to Use Coconut Flour, I hope this article will be a helpful guide to you as you experiment with converting a wheat flour recipe to coconut flour: A lot of recipes containing wheat flour can be converted to 100% coconut flour, but this will take time and practice. Coconut flour behaves differently from recipe to recipe, so a lot of tweaking and adjusting will have to be done. If you do convert this to coconut flour, I'm sure other readers would benefit from hearing you share what you did, if you want to come back and comment about your experience with this recipe, later. <3
