« Last post by Eric on December 06, 2016, 05:49:19 PM »
3/4 c + 1/2 c extra coconut flour
1/4 c arrowroot starch
1/2 c coconut oil or butter, melted
1/8 tsp sea salt
5 tablespoons maple syrup
1/4 c dark chocolate chips (optional)


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Combine all ingredients except chocolate and 1/2 c extra coconut flour in a mixing bowl. Mush up with a fork and add additional coconut flour until the mixture is crumbly.
3. Dust a clean, smooth surface with coconut flour. Press the crumbly mixture out with your fingers to make it smooth and somewhat flat. Dust with coconut flour.
4. Roll the dough to about 1/8-1/4 inch thickness using a rolling pin. Cut shapes out of the dough. Roll the scraps up into a ball and flatten to cut more shapes out.
5. Bake on a lightly greased cookie sheet for 15 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool.
6. Microwave the chocolate chips for 10 second intervals, stirring between intervals, until they are melted. Drizzle cookies with the chocolate. If the chocolate is not very runny, add a tiny amount of coconut oil and stir.
7. Allow the cookies to cool in the fridge or freezer for a few minutes until the chocolate is set.

A tiny grape pip (scale 1mm), left on the ground some 780,000 years ago, is one of more than 9,000 remains of edible plants discovered in an old Stone Age site in Israel on the shoreline of Lake Hula in the northern Jordan valley, dating back to the Acheulian culture from 1.75-0.25 million years ago. The floral collection provides rich testimony of the plant-based diet of our prehistoric ancestors.

While around the world remains of Paleolithic plants are scarce, this unique macro-botanical assemblage has allowed researchers from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and Bar Ilan University to study the vegetal diet of humans from early-mid-Pleistocene, which is central to understanding the evolution, adaptation and exploitation of the environment by hominins.

The findings were recovered during archeological excavations at the waterlogged site of Gesher Benot Ya'aqov, where the earliest evidence of human-controlled fire in western Asia was discovered in recent years.

Prof. Naama Goren-Inbar of the Institute of Archeology at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, who conducted the excavations with colleagues, have long studied findings of hominid occupations in the Levantine Corridor, through which several hominin waves dispersed out of Africa.

In a research paper that will be published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) on December 5, titled "The plant component of an Acheulian diet: a case study from Gesher Benot Ya'aqov, Israel", Prof. Goren-Inbar reveals the discovery of the ancient macrobotanical remains, which for the first time indicate to the rich variety of plant assortments and subsistence opportunities that were available to the early humans on the transition from an African-based to a Eurasian diet.

Paleo Egg Nog

    4 egg yolks
    ⅓ cup coconut sugar
    2 cans coconut milk, canned and full fat
    1 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg, freshly grated (adjust to taste)
    ľ teaspoon cinnamon
    almond milk, optional (to thin out the egg nog)
    rum, optional


    In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat yolks for a couple minutes. Gradually add coconut sugar - pausing in between to let the sugar dissolve. Set aside for now.
    In a saucepan, bring the coconut milk to a low simmer and then add the nutmeg and cinnamon.
    Now itís time to temper the eggs. Turn your stand mixer on low and then (very) slowly add a spoonful of the hot milk mixture to the egg yolks. Repeat until you have about a cup of milk in your mixer.
    Once the eggs have been tempered, add them to the saucepan and allow the mixture to simmer for a few minutes.
    Turn off the heat and allow the egg nog to cool down.
    Add rum if you want to, then put the egg nog in the fridge to chill (the longer you let it chill, the thicker it will become).
    When you take the egg nog out of the fridge, add almond milk to thin it out according to taste.
    Sprinkle freshly grated nutmeg and cinnamon on top before serving.

Idea for Thanksgiving leftovers:

Place a cup of leftover mashed sweet potatoes, a few eggs, a quarter cup of coconut flour & (optionally, if you allow it on occasion) a quarter cup of shredded cheese

Plop into thin bun shapes (top and bottom separate) and bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Flip and give them another ten minutes. Makes excellent slightly sweet buns that hold up well.

Only humans could think that processing food even more will make it "more like" the lesser processed version.  :o
Or they could just take the milk out....
Also presbyopia and loss of hearing.
