Gluten-Free Timbits!

September 1, 2010

Timbits!!  What’s a timbit?  You must be American.  *sweet smile at you*

Timbit (proper noun): a bite-sized doughnut hole sold at Tim Hortons in Canada. Introduced in April 1976 these treats are now available in various flavours that differ from store to store. Flavours include chocolate, jelly-filled, “dutchie”, honey dip, sour cream glazed, and apple fritter.

Sour cream glazed is my favourite.  But now that we’re going more gluten-free/paleo/primal/vlc, we’re trying to limit the amount of (wheat) grain products we have in our diet!

So a while back I had this brilliant idea to try frying my coconut flour muffin batter in coconut oil.  “Would that make a timbit?” I wondered.  So today I tried it.  Yummy awesomeness!!

Recipe is after the jump! 🙂

Chocolate Update

April 27, 2009

I made a new batch of coconut chocolate.  This time I used a little cayenne and black pepper in the mix.  Just a dash of each.  It adds a tiny little yummy kick!

Also, Ryan doesn’t like chocolate, but he LOVES these little chocolate pieces.

Finally, for those counting their points, each piece is 1 point.  Two pieces is 2.5 points.  Enjoy!
