Here I am, this is my first post!
I have been updating my food pictures on Facebook page, and I wanted to take it further by creating a blog, so I can share more with you and of course the recipes.
I had a mature fresh coconut that needed using. So I thought I must make something nice, considering the effort of cracking the shell and taking all the meat out!
This is a very simple recipe, like a lot of my other recipes. You will need a good blender (I use NutriBullet) or a food processor to make the coconut meat into almost paste like state.
Also I used some home made hemp milk I had made earlier. I have it in fridge everyday now.
But you can use any milk of your choice, including shop bought one of course.
Most of the time when I create a recipe, I don’t have exact measurements as it is one of the ways that I feel free and creative. And for me any outcome in cooking is never a ‘failure’ and beautiful as it is, as long as you have a strong wish to make something delicious. I see this creation as an art.
I will try to measure ingredients more often so that I can give you the recipe easier to follow. (Actually I bought sets of measuring cups and spoons online and they are on the way!) So, every now and then you will have to use your imagination, intuition and courage to experiment!
Meat of 1 mature coconut (keep the thin brown skin)
Hemp milk or other type of milk of your choice
Whole hemp seeds (optional)
1.Preheat the oven to 175C.
2.Chop the dates into small pieces. (I do this just in case blender doesn’t get over heated. I love my blender so I make sure he doesn’t over work.)
3.Put all the ingredients in your blender except for porridge oats, then blend.
(I did not put hemp seeds as they were already in the milk, but you can add them if you are using other types of milk.)
4.When all combined and nice and smooth, add porridge oats and mix well with a spoon. The mixture nees to be not too runny.
5.On a baking sheet drop some of the mixture, then bake for 10 min or until the surface is brown. Then turn the heat down to 150C and bake until inside is dry.
Note: You can taste the mixture before baking and adjust the sweetness by adding more/less dates.
