    I enjoyed discussing various subjects with you last night at foodbuzz. Your website is engaging, attractive and enticing. And so are the food descriptions.

    All of the best to you!

    Hi! I am new to your blog— and I am already an addict to it!
    I have a question about coconut flour— CAN I MAKE MY OWN???? Will it work in your recipes?
    It’s so expensive and I can’t seem to find it in my local stores. :/ Here are the recipes I am thinking about trying:

      EL SCOUTO! Hi. Thank you so much for checking out my humble abode! Are you having a nice spring break? I hope no projectors have fallen down. (I want to be there.)

    Kelly,

    My name is Howard. I tried your Instant Almond Butter recipe and it came out just great. Can you please explain how you calculated the nutritional breakdown — calories, fat, carbs, etc. I have a bag of Bob’s Red Mill finely ground Almond Meal. Accord to the label on the bag, there are 160 calories in 1/4c (28g). How did you derive your caloric breakdown?

    Thank you. Howard

  6. Bek says

    Hi!

    I am new to this blog and wondered why you use coconut flour instead of regular/wholemeal flour?
    Is it lower in calories?

    • says

      Thank you so much for reading! Welcome aboard! I use coconut flour becuase, in my opinion, it is just better than wheat flour. Coconut flour is grain free, gluten free, low carb, and lower in calories. I also happen to be completely in love with coconut, so the subtle coconut flavor is a plus for me. If you have any more questions or just want to chat, just let me know! I’d love to hear from you!

    Hi,
    I really like your recipes. I have been trying to be healthier lately and am looking forward to trying out some recipes soon.
    How do I subscribe to this blog though?
    Cheers

  8. Lori says

    Just came across your Almost Calorie Free Caramel Sauce & want to try it – but wondered if there’s anything missing in the recipe?
    Seems to me that 1/2 cup xylitol w/ only 1 tsp agave wouldn’t create a thinnish sauce like your picture shows – correct me if I’m wrong – just didn’t want to have a flop on this attempt :)
    Thks much,

    • says

      Thank you so much for the question, Lori! You will not be having any flops if I can help it! ;)The xylitol in this recipe caramelizes much like sugar would, producing a very thick and rich caramel sauce. So no worries about it being too thin. Thanks again, and I hope this helps!

  9. Tracy Lynn says

    Hi Kelly…a quick question. I cannot use the egg replacer that some of the recipes call for as they are not gluten free…well, not the ones I have seen anyway. I was wondering what your spin was on using flax eggs or chia eggs (making them into a gel and incorporating them into recipes) as a binder. I have not had much luck baking with coconut flour and I refuse to waste one more egg in my learning process. I would like to make coconut flour crepes. I have been making your low carb chick pea flour tortillas and absolutely love them….but want to rotate them with the coconut flour. I would love your advice for gluten free egg substitutes before I even try this out and waste anymore of my very expensive ingredients.

    Thanks for all of your awesome recipes….your site is just so much fun to visit…

    Tracy

  10. Belinda says

    Hi Kelly, have just come across your site. Am loving everything coconut at present and have been searching for new things to make & am looking very forward to trying some of your recipes :-)
    A quick question though (as I am new to Stevia), just wondering how many grams or teaspoons are in the packet of stevia that you list in your ingredients & which brand do you use ?
    Thanking you in advance, Belinda

    • says

      You are so sweet, Belinda! Thank you so much for the question! My favorite brand of stevia is NuNaturals (you can buy it here), but I don’t know off the top of my head how many grams are in a packet. I do know that Truvia has 3.5 grams in a packet. Thanks again, and I hope this helps! If you ever have any other question or just want to chat, please don’t hesitate. ;)

  11. Charlotte says

    Hi, I just stumbled across your website, and now have plans to make your low cal coconut butter tomorrow. I was wondering if you could cook with it? On another note, I don’t understand how your “low cal quinoa” is any different from how one normally prepares quinoa. I’ve always just made it with quinoa and water. Am I missing something?

    • says

      Hi Charlotte, and thank you so much for the question! The reason my quinoa recipe is different than others is that it is just cooked in more water than other recipes, so it absorbs more water and becomes less caloric. Thanks again, and I hope this helps!

  12. Abikale says

    I stumbled upon your website looking for healthy cookie recipes. I was so surprised to learn about coconut flour. I went out and bought some right away. I have made your chocolate chip cookies about 12 times and am baking up a storm with coconut flour! One day I started browsing through through your blog and was shocked at how young you are!! I wish I would have been making healthy choices at your age. What a blessing for you to be so aware of the importance of taking good care of your body. You are a good writer and your food pics are amazing. Keep up the good work (and the great recipes)!!

    • says

      Okay, you just made my week. Thank you so much! I am thrilled I could help you out in your healthy cookie quest, and I am so happy to have you aboard! Welcome! ;)

  13. Natalie says

    I came across your website recently in search of low calorie recipes for my younger brother who snacks all the time! Unfortunately, its not doing very good for him… Your recipes are genius! I am really looking forward to making all this food!!! ^.^ I just have a question though, I’ve never used Stevia, and I live in Australia where Nunaturals isn’t a brand, so I’m planning to buy it online. However, I’m not sure which one to use, the liquid, powder packets, or both? Thanks so much, you’re amazing! I’m around the same age as you, but I would never have though of these recipes!

  14. jamie says

    Hi Kelly! Wanted to thank you for such an amazing site — but I also had a couple questions that I’ve been trying to find the answers to:
    1 – is coconut powder and flour the same thing? I think flour is from ground coconut pieces, and powder is from dehydrated coconut milk – does this change their nutritional value and or the way it acts in a recipe?

    2- I’ve been reading recently about using peanut grounds/peanut powder as a healthier option in recipes calling for peanut butter. Have u experimented with it at all?!

    Thanks again!

    • says

      Hi Jamie! Sorry for the late response, but I hope I can still be helpful.

      1. You are not the first person to ask about coconut flour/powder, but my research has turned out to be inconclusive. I have not worked with coconut powder and do not know how it acts, so unfortunately I don’think I can be of too much assistance here. If you test it out, could you please let me know how it goes?

      2. Yes! Peanut flour (defatted ground peanuts) is a miracle ingredient. I have actually used it to make my healthier, low calorie peanut butter here.

      Thank you,and I hope this helps!

  15. Sj says

    I discovered this blog about 10 seconds ago. I am in love. Who else has a cookie recipe that has 10 calories per cookie?!?!!?
    I hope you get famous.
    You should be on TV.
    You are amazing.
    You just saved me from all my sugar cravings!
    I LOVE YOU

    • says

      Sj, I want you to know you made my week with this comment. Thank you so much! It is actually my dream to host my own cooking show. (Know anyone looking for a cooking show host?) You can be a guest star!

  16. Sj says

    Hi Kelly, me again, sorry…
    I’m just wondering, what type of coconut flour are you using?
    I noticed you use it in almost every recipe and you say they produce very low calorie foods, but when
    I searched up the nutrition info of coconut flour 2 tbsp provides 60 calories!
    So…what is this amazing coconut flour you’re using? haha
    And is peanut flour lower calorie than coconut flour? Can we substitute that instead?
    THanks!

    • says

      Hi Sj! Please accept my apologies for the late response. I use either Bob’s Red Mill or Let’s Do… Organic brands. Technically there are 60 calories in a 2 tablespoon serving, but only about 40 NET calories. This is because coconut flour is so high in fiber, and your body does not absorb the calories in fiber. Hope this helps!

  17. Sarah-Jane says

    Hi Kelly!
    I just want to say thank you so much for putting in all this effort into providing us with healthy delicacies!

    I just discovered the super low calorie coconut flour :o it’s a wonder!
    I’m just wondering, where can I buy this? I live in Australia, Melbourne, and I can’t find any coconut flour defatted peanut flour, or even raw, organic coconut flakes and peanuts!

    I really hope you can help me out…
    What type of coconut flour, peanut flour, coconut milk, almond meal and almond milk do you use?
    Also, what brand of xytlitol do you use?
    I’m a newbie at all this :3

    Oh, and-unsweetened cocoa powder. WHERE DO I BUY THIS???!!! How do you differentiate the sweetened and unsweetened cocoa powders? Is the calorie difference high?

    Thank you so much Kelly, God bless!

    • says

      Again, I’m sorry for getting back to you so late! Thank you so much for your kindness!

      You poor thing! You can buy all these specialty ingredients online for a great price at iherb.com. I use whichever xylitol brand is cheapest, but I really use erythritol now because that is the calorie free sweetener. ;) As for unsweetened cocoa powder, it’s actually quite easy to find. As long as it’s not labeled “hot cocoa powder,” doesn’t have any added sugar, and is 10-20 calories a tablespoon, you should be good to go.

  18. Sj says

    Hi Kelly,
    I found your Coconut Flour Pancakes (150 calories, vegan & low carb) on pinterest, they look amazing and I want pancakes, but I can’t find it on your blog? Please help! I have a SERIOUS carb craving and some sweet bread like thingo would really fix it!

  19. Sarah-Jane says

    Happy New Year Kelly!!

    Two words.

    Apple. Crumble.

    Buttery. Crumby. Bready. Unhealthy.
    Would you care to healthify this winter classic?

  20. Essie says

    Could you create:

    -Caramel slice with your almost calorie free caramel and healthy homemade “chocolate”

    -Caramel chocolate- chocolates that contain caramel in the middle, made with your almost calorie free caramel and healthy homemade “chocolate”

    -Healthy tart recipe (for apricot tarts, apple pies, strawberry tarts etc)-made with possibly chickpea flour? I don’t know, you’re the artist!

    -A SCRUMPTIOUS cheesecake that tastes like cheesecake……not the least bit yoghurt-y, as I can’t stand it :(

    -healthy, low calorie puff pastry. Or pastry. Doesn’t even have to puff.

    The first three—–would be legend…wait for it…dairy! ;) no pun intended

  21. Nikol says

    Hi Kelly, so, to add to your to make list,

    A sweet biscuity-pastry-cookieish thing.
    Like a TART pastry. That you can eat without the filling. This would save millions!

  22. natlee says

    Your healthy broccoli and cheese soup….how many servings does it make? I can’t seem to find this info in the recipe…..Can you let me know?

  23. Miranda says

    Hi Kelly,
    I love your recipes. I’m 15 and just went on a low carb diet since I got very sick a few months back and gained about 25 pounds. I’m only 5’0 and used to weighing no more than 107. In your bio you mentioned you dropped about 40 pounds in as little as three months! HOW??? You have no idea how much I would kill to be able to drop that quickly. How many calories were you eating in a day? Were you excercising at all? Please give me the inside scoop! I am desperate. Your recipes are divine and I love that you are so young, beautiful, and insightful. It’s nice to know that someone aound my age cares about what is going into their body as much as I do. I’m just so sick of weighing more than I ever dreamed of weighing. :( Please help, I’m desperate! Love always, Miranda Reagan. <3

  24. Sal says

    Could you create healthy brown sugar cinnamon pop tarts, I’m addicted, and I need to figure out a healthier way to make them!

    Thanks!

  25. says

    Hi Kelly!
    I stumbled upon your blog the other day and have been following since I laid eyes on your recipes! You’re such a wonderful inspiration. I just started a blog about a month ago and this is such a wonderful community you promote here. Best of luck!

    You are soooo busy! However, I am still watching for your recipe for red velvet cupcakes??? Thanks sweetheart! Your other mother, marleen

  27. Kacee says

    Hi Kelly! I love your website, it’s so inspiring to try new recipes! I was recently diagnosed with a lot of allergies at the beginning of Febuary (which is a whole new world for me) I’m still learning what to eat and what not to eat. I want to try a lot of your recipes but I’m unsure of substitutes I could use in place of certain things I’m allergic to. Can you please help me?! :) my #1 allergy is yeast and I’m also allergic to gluten, wheat, oats, barley, dairy, vanilla bean (so anything vanilla or almond too) no extract for me :( I can’t have chicken egg anymore so I’ve switched to duck egg which is working great! :) I also use coconut flour now and I can do flaxseed. Was hoping maybe you had a few recipes or substitutes I could use in place for some of the ingredients you call for! Oh yeah and I can’t do anything fermented so no vinegar or chocolate! Please help! :)

  28. says

    Hi Kelly,

    Nice site you have! I love your idea about the almond butter, but I’m still
    trying to figure out where did the calories go just by adding almond milk ?
    Are they being diluted by the milk, but then the almond milk also has
    calories, hence, I’m in brain-lock !

    • says

      Thank you Natasha! The way it works is that when you grind almond into butter, they lose half their volume but retain the same amount of calories. In this recipe, you retain the volume with the same amount of calories, so the calories go down by half in comparison. Unsweetened almond milk is much less dense calorie-wise than almonds. Hope this helps!

  29. Reny says

    I just started reading your blog and I have to say. This is the most impressive blog I have ever read by a 14 year old. I don’t understand how you have put so much thought into nutrition, technique, etc. Your website is beautiful and your pictures are fantastic. Seriously keep up the good work.

    • says

      You rock, Violet. Thank you so very much!

      I appreciate you thinking of me! Yes, that recipe is right up my alley. I’d love to do a rendition of it sometime!

  30. Nancy Whynaught says

    Good for you, your young and on the road to health.
    I tried printing your pasta recipe but i got all the pages on your blog wasting a lot of ink and paper.Can you suggest a way to get only the recipes?
    Thanks

    • says

      Thank you very much Nancy! I am sorry about the waste of ink and paper. For my newer recipes, I have “print this” button. I am in the process of manually entering my older recipes into the program, but it may be awhile. Sorry! I’d be happy to keep you posted.

  31. says

    Hi there,
    Read your recipe on chickpea flour pasta, I noticed that you had trouble in finding a subdtite for eggs to make a vegan version.
    You can try this one that I have used.
    1 teaspoon of chickpea flour
    1 – 2 tablespoon full of water

    Whisk the two together till you have runny mixture, this should resemble an egg that has been whisked.

    Add this to the flour to bind it.

    As an alternative, try corn flour or rice flour or potato starch.
    My best success is 1st Chicpea, then potato starch, rice corn.

    Good luck.

    Love the freshness of your style.

    Coconut Flour Pancakes

    I plan to try this recipe on the weekend. Am I correct to assume that your recipe is for one based on the quantity of ingredients? If so, can I double the recipe? I know this doesn’t work for all recipes.

    Thanks,
    Janet, Mississauga, Ontario

    • says

      Hi Janet! Yes, the recipe is for one serving. I have not doubled the recipe myself, but I assume it would work. Please let me know if you try it! Thanks!

  33. Lorraine says

    Hey Kelly!

    I am totally new to erythritol and I was hoping you could give me some tips and recommend a certain brand or type. I read that there is a powder version and a granulated version. Which one is better? Or at least, which one do you use for your recipes which are the ones I am trying to recreate?

    Thank you and keep up the good work!!!

    • says

      Welcome aboard, Lorraine! I use granulated erythritol in my recipes, and whichever brand it cheapest. iHerb.com is a great resource for this. Hope this helps!

    • says

      Thank you for pointing that out! Yes, I see the problem, and no it is not right. I’m working on it now. Meanwhile, there is a categories drop down menu in the sidebar, so you can just click on low carb or search for low carb in the search bar in the header. Hope this helps!

  34. Jodi says

    Kelly,

    I can’t get over that you are only 15…i discovered your site looking for low fat/low carb and low sugar CLEAN recipes. I am obsessed with your “all for one” cakes (and my recent all for one cinnamon bread is my FAVORITE).

    Last week i tried the cauliflower risotto and it was so delicious, i shared it with a fitness group of 100+ people…i haven’t had rice/cheese in several month and this recipe was insanely good!!!!!

    Your family must be so proud of you and i thank you so much for your dedication to food and finding yummy things for clean eaters out there!!!

    I have been trying to make make pancakes with the coconut flour and have followed the recipe but they will not turn out properly they will not stay together and cannot be flipped what am I doing wrong

  36. Haj says

    Those coconut flour pancakes look delicious. I am a grown man and would love to try this recipe. I was looking all over to see if you included the topping (syrup). It looks like a perfect mate that belongs with your pancakes. Can you offer the recipe for the topping? Otherwise, this man is ready to cry!

While I was looking at your website today, I started thinking..it would be awesome if I could share her recipes on Tumblr! Then all my followers could see them too and would also visit her website. Just a thought. I would love to post a lot of your recipes and ideas on my blog so others could get started with your awesome healthy foods too!

    just tomatoes blended as in tomatoe passata?

    Cheers, Andy

  40. Deana says

    I am really digging your site and have already made a couple of the recipes and commented on them. I notice many of your recipes call for bananas and/or applesauce. Is this to replace an oil? And if so can I substitute evenly? Or say if you call for “one mashed banana” how much oil would that be? And if not oil, then what would you suggest? I am low-carb and high fat (aka “ketogenic”) so I don’t use bananas or applesauce at all, but oil is A-OK!

    I also wanted to say I really commend you for taking hold of your life and health now, at such a young age, and then coming up with all these fabulous recipes and wonderful pictures to go with them! Kudos to you :D

    • says

      Hi Deana! Yes, I use applesauce/mashed banana to replace oil, and I do believe you can sub in oil for it. One mashed banana would be approximately 1/2 cup oil.

      Thank you!

  41. Donna Boguslavsky says

    Wow,

    I just came across your blog for the first time today while searching for a low cal milkshake recipe. What I found was this tantalizing, informative, and charming culinary dimension. I’d say that your site one of the Internet’s best kept secrets but there seem to be plenty of people who already know about you! I am just glad to finally be in on it. :)

    Keep up the great work,

  43. Olivia S. says

    Hi! :D

    I’m Olivia. I love your website. I was just wondering if you could help me out with something..
    I’m the youngest in my house (I’m 11 and my brother is 19) and my family has a very fast metabolism so we are all used to eating fairly unhealthy, and I realized how important it was to be healthy so I decided to start trying to make some changes in my eating habits.
    But.. then I turn around and the junk food is everywhere. So it’s been a little hard to set my mind on it, I do simple things like getting water instead of soda when I’m out to eat and I do fine until I return home, my mom buys me my own fat free milk and whole wheat bread though.
    I just cannot figure out how to take the first step without falling backwards again.

    Thanks so much,
    Olivia

    • says

      Hi Olivia! I so feel for you. I was 12 when I had your revelation (way to be ahead of the game by the way!), and it’s not easy. Do you do a lot of cooking? Taking on more cooking responsibility really helped me stay healthy. It’s just my mom and me in the house and she was going through chemo at the time, so it was actually a relief for someone else to take on the grocery shopping and the cooking. Perhaps you can suggest doing more of the shopping/cooking in your house? It might be harder for you because you live with more people. It’s really good to learn just for life, you get to eat all the healthy tasty food you want, and it’s super fun.

      Please let me know how it goes! I’m excited for you. ;)

    Hey Kelly! My daughter and I just made your Vegan Macaroni and Cheese recipe and it was AMAZING! How did you ever figure out that puréed pumpkin would be such a fabulous addition? We threw in some sautéed mushrooms and green onions for fun — delicious!

    Love your blog, and most especially your sense of humour!

  45. Summer says

    Not gonna lie, I was skeptical when I saw how young you are but holy crap your recipes are great. I haven’t tried one yet as I just found your site today but I’m already obsessed. I’ve been dying for sweets and things but everything is so bad for you and you have such amazing healthy options.

    Thank you for existing.

    -Summer xoxo

  46. Peter Doyne says

    Hey Kelly. For a young gal, I’d say you’re on your way to success with some of these recipes. Can’t wait to try the pancakes. Have you thought of using Muscle Milk with this? It’s not gritty like whey protein. I use blueberry Muscle Milk usually with Bisquick but trying to get away from a lot of wheat as I try to introduce paleo eating more and more. Got to try your cinammon rolls too. Glad I found your site. Will have check out your fb page to get some more ideas. Cheers and all the best! Pete

    Hi Kelly,
    I’ve followed your blog for about 6 months now, I hope you’re doing ok. My thoughts are with you during this difficult time with your mother battling cancer, people have overcome crazy challenging things before and I’m sure you’re mom will too. Hang in there and don’t let fear hold you back from doing something you love.
    Sincerely,
    Kelsey Evans

    Hi Kelly, I was wondering if you could help me! I’ve been looking everywhere and can’t seem to figure it out! How much Stevia is equivalent to a tablespoon of Sweet N’ Low? I can’t imagine using THAT MUCH Stevia in a half cup of oatmeal!

  51. Richard says

    Good recipe but not as healthy as you may think. Baking powder is an evil ingedient containing trace amounts of aluminum. I did like the fact you were able to get around the yeast.

    Hey Kelly,
    Will it be okay to share you’re recipes and site on my facebook. Of course all credits will be to you!

  54. says

    I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy your recipes! Such great ideas – healthy and tasty! ;) I just bought some plantain flour, sweet potato flour, pumpkin powder and beet powder. I have been experimenting w/ them- but was wondering if you would come up with some new recipes with these awesome ingredients! Thanks!!

  55. John Bickley says

    Hi-
    Just made my 1st loaf of your Healthy Yeast Bread…
    Some thoughts: (1) 24 slices isn’t possible – you need to correct this error quickly since folks are getting more than twice the number of carbs they bargained for, and some people may angrily assume you’re fabricating data. The fotos show what a small amount of dough is involved – I’m guessing that 10-12 slices is more like it. (2) My dough was too soggy to start with, and even after an extra 15′ baking, still not done in the center (it was too late for me to add more flour prior to baking since I’d already returned it to the freezer!). (3) No flavor to speak of – very blah; not enough salt. (Don’t pay attention to all the experts about salt and heart disease,k etc. etc. – look up the actual studies and you’ll find NO causal connection.) However, I’m 74 and my taste buds are in about the same shape as my eyes, ears, hair, knees, feet, etc. etc., so maybe my judgment shouldn’t be considered at all. (4) Most of these wheat-substitute breads don’t taste good at all in the bread stage, but really perk up when toasted – yours didn’t, I’m afraid. (5) Never did either smell or taste the yeast – bummer.
    I truly don’t understand your gushing enthusiasm about this bread, unless it has to do with your age and relative lack of baking experience.
    So sorry – I was very hopeful.

  56. Trish Wells says

    Just found your site and love it – I can’t wait to try these low carb recipes. I was diagnosed at the beginning of the year with insulin resistance/PCOS. I have been on a low carb, low sugar, high protein diet since then. Some days it is a struggle to find something “healthy” that doesn’t taste terrible. Especially desserts and breads. Looking forward to trying some of these soon. Keep up the great work! :)
    Thanks!

  57. Kelly Phillip says

    I’m impressed. I have reactive hypoglycemia and I’m getting excited over the prospects of baking some of your recipes. Not only do you have an AMAZING selection of food, I’ve not seen a website so well organized as this. Excellent job and thank you.

  61. says

    Hey Kelly–
    I’m new to gluten free as well as nut flours. I have made a number of items with mixed results. My question is do you use a scale or spoon in the flour in a regular measureing cup. Most of the recipes I use I have to use a scale but then again some of the recipes I use don’t whick is why I think I get mixed results. Please clarify for me. Thanks and your recipes look amazingly good. Thanks.

  62. Maria Au-Young says

    Hi Kelly

    I just used your coconut flour pancake recipe as a base inspiration for pikelets, they were excellent. We ate them with reduced sugar rhubarb and strawberry jam (made by Mum) and whipped cream.

    my variation was
    1/3 cup coconut flour
    1/3 cup buckwheat flour
    2 eggs (the whole thing)
    1 cup of milk
    1 tsp stevia
    1/8 tsp cinnamon
    1/4 tsp salt.

    made about 12, cooked in the usual pikelet way

    thanks for the inspiration!!!

    God Bless
    Maria :-)

  63. Danys says

    Hi Kelly,

    I was wondering do you research the ingredients you use in your recipes before using. For example Erithritol. I was reading up on it and noticed you use it in some of your recipes.

    Continue your great work.

    Danys

  64. dman says

    the biscotti recipe calls for baking powder but doesn’t say when to add it in the instructions. i left it out by mistake and it was flat and chewy… still tasted good though!!!! i love your website!!

    Hey Kelly! I would just like to personally thank you for posting these healthy recipes. I am 15 years old and recovering from anorexia. Your recipes have given me hope that I can have a good relationship food and enjoy all my favorite recipes too! Much love xxx

  66. Juliet says

    Hey Kelly. Greetings from Edinburgh. I’m confused between coconut flour and coconut powder, as well as baking soda and baking powder. As for the latter, could I substitute either e.g., just use baking soda and not baking powder, or vice versa?

  67. Tammy Tomlinson says

    Hi Kelly,

    Awesome website. Is there anyway you can put if the recipe is Gluten free, Dairy free, egg free, sugar free and/or nut free in the title of each recipe?? I have to click on all the recipes that I am interested in, scroll down to the ingredients to just find out of the recipe will work for me. It will save me tons of time.

    Thanks!

  75. Kathy says

    I am wondering why you use erythritol in some recipes and stevia in others. I have been reading about this erythritol stuff and it doesn’t sound very healthy at all. Can I substitute stevia in those recipes that call for sugar OR erythritol?

    Want to try a couple of your cookies/breads. They sound wonderful! Thanks for the blog!

    Kathy

    • says

      Great question Kathy! It really depends on the recipe, but for the most part stevia cannot be substituted. The texture, flavor, and sheer volume of erythritol is comprable to real sugar, and while I adore stevia, it is indeed quite different from sugar. Have you tried using eryhtritol/stevia blends such as Truvia?

  76. CAROLE EATON says

    Kelly, I have a question about the cauliflower buffalo wings. I saw that you used chickpea flour. Do you think it would be ok to use either coconut or almond flour or mix them together. I can hardly wait to hear back from you so I can cook these. Thank you and Blessings, Carole

  77. says

    Hello There,,
    Hope you are well! I was writing to see what kind of volume and CPM we might be able to place on for a campaign on your site? We would be after USA online; and likely after 300X250- and if not- every other size… 160X600 and 728X90…

    Cheers!
    Chad w/ Roxbury DIgital – we have never reached out to your site before.

    Hi, I’ve just started my blog. I didn’t realise until I saw this website that the blogging world wasn’t just for adults! Thanks so much for the inspiration and please check out my blog at bellesbakingbonanza.wordpress.com

  79. CAROLE EATON says

    WOW! I made the peanut butter using the peanut powder/almond milk and honey. It is actually better than bought peanut butter. My question is: does it have to be refrigerated and how long will it be good. Thank you and Blessings, Carole

  80. Ann-Cathrin says

    Hey! I tried to send an email, but it wouldn’t go through. Here’s what I wanted to say :)

    Hi Kelly,

    First off, I just want to say WOW. Really. Scouring the internet for healthy food blogs, I came across yours and now I’m really excited. I know you must be getting many, many emails since becoming so successful, so I’ll try to keep this as short at possible. I don’t want to take up too much of your time, but I would appreciate any advice you could give me.

    My name is Ann-Cathrin Guertler and I’m 16 years old. After changing my eating habits to lose the 30 pounds that made me overweight (the right way), I found my love of healthy cooking. This was a little under a year ago. Since then, I created a healthy cooking class at my school and taught the first session to a group of 21 students (teaching seniors as a sophomore is terrifying- but it all ended well). Now I am looking to start a healthy food blog targeting teenagers and college students. I would like to emphasize that healthy meals can taste delicious and be easy to make.

    I am looking at wordpress.org as a website and blue host as a host. My biggest concern is the process of building my audience. Do you have any tips I should know before embarking on this? What are the best ways to have readers become interested? I know I need to earn the audience, but I’m not sure of the most effective way to do this.
    Are there any other tips you could give me? What was the most challenging aspect of creating a blog?

    Thank you so much for your time,
    Ann-Cathrin Guertler

    P.S. I love your low-cal quinoa and rice. Love.

  81. says

    Let me know if you’d be open to working with Vitacost.com. We’d love to talk to you about creating content that includes ingredients that can be found on our website, and also about using our own social media and email channels to spread the word about you. It just seems like a natural fit and we’d be eager to explore possible ways of connecting.

    Looking forward to hearing back from you

  82. Brian Allen says

    Hi Kelly,

    Love the website and big congrats on all your success.

    I recommend, though, that you get the webmaster to either change the font color along your top banner menu or change the background. Almost impossible to read the white pulldown menu titles against that newsprint background. Sure they turn red when you mouse over them, but that requires people to see the selections in the first place.

    Just my thoughts.

    Love, love, love the photography on the site.

    -Brian

    can you please try ?
    honestly ….. i dont think there is anything you cant come up with. lol
    you have such talent for putting these recipes together.

    thanks

  88. june templin says

    Your website looks fascinating, but needs some tweaking for readability.

    The background on your banner across the top, combined with the white lettering, is almost impossible to see or read. Some of the pages it shows up better than others, but for instance, on http://www.foodiefiasco.com/single-serving-brownies/ … I just can hardly make out the lettering.

    It’s very pretty, but pretty isn’t useful if it can’t be read.

    Keep up with the good work, though … can’t wait to try your single serving brownie.

  92. Marie says

    Dear Kelly,

    My name is Marie and I love your website. I al addictie to it!! Really… (Don’t be scared!) I live in Belgium. To be honnest, belgians know how to bake bread… But affortunately, they are high in calories and carbs… So to satisfy my cravings, I made a recipe with brocolli. So you need 100 grams of all purpose flour, 4 eggs (or egg-replacer), 500 grams of brocolli and 1 tps of baking powder. You cut of all the flowers from the brocolli and put them allang with the eggs or egg replacer in a foodproccesor units no chunks remain. Than you add the other ingredients. You can shape them however you want. Bake them in an oven on 400 degrees for 20-30 minutes (untill golden on top…) let them cool down and done! Can you try this and make the recipe better? You can also have it to put it on your website… It would be such an honour!!! Again, I love you! And thanks for everything!

  93. Becky says

    I’m getting ready to try your Coconut Flour Pancakes…they look yummy! Is there a place to see how many carbs, fiber and protein are in the recipe?

  94. jane says

    Kelly I found your bread recipe and looking forward to trying it out, I need to be grain free, so this is exciting to see how you have presented it here.
