1/4 cup coconut flour, sifted
2 cups unsweetened coconut shreds

1/4 cup honey
2 tsp coconut oil, melted
1/8 tsp pure salt

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • Mix together coconut flour, shredded coconut, baking soda, baking powder, and chocolate chips.
  • In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until they form soft peaks.
  • Add to the egg whites (if possible – while beating) the vanilla, honey, oil, and salt.
  • Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and gently fold together.
  • Pour into a greased 8 x 8 baking dish.
  • Bake for about 25 minutes.



~ Adapted from “The Spunky Coconut Book”. Probably the most coconutty cake you can eat! Delicious and healthy too. Very light & fluffy. (For a denser version, don’t beat the egg whites as long.)

~ I use a thin coating of coconut oil to grease the dish.
