  • Summary

    I prefer to make my own baking powder to ensure that it's grain-free. Here's the recipe: 1 part baking soda + 1 part cream of tartar + 2 parts arrowroot. I make the baking powder in large batches and store it in a glass jar.

    Ingredients

    • 3 cups almond meal or flour
    • 1/4 cup coconut flour
    • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
    • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1 teaspoon grain-free baking powder (see above)
    • 1/2 teaspoon Celtic sea salt
    • 2/3 cup maple syrup (I use grade B for the flavor and because it's a bit cheaper than grade A)
    • 1/2 cup coconut oil (I used Wilderness Family Naturals )
    • 4 large eggs
    • 1/2 cup plain whole yogurt
    • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1/3 cup maple syrup (I prefer Grade B)
    • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    • pinch of sea salt
    • 1 pound unsalted butter, softened, each stick cut into tablespoons
