The following are my favorite and most commonly used ingredients in my recipes:

Coconut Flour (a grain-free alternative to wheat flour that is high in fiber and is low-carb) I buy coconut flour from Nutiva & Coconut Secret

Raw Honey (an unrefined sweetener that has healing properties and other health benefits when used raw–it is best when you can find local raw honey)

Raw Coconut Oil or Butter (coconut oil is a wonderful source of “good fats”) I buy coconut oil from Nutiva

Arrowroot Powder (a grain-free alternative to cornstarch and wheat flour)

Almonds, Walnuts, Pecans, Cashews (I try to use “raw” nuts and seeds as much as possible)

Flax seeds, Sunflower Seeds, Sesame Seeds and Pumpkin Seeds


Almond Butter¬†— (legume-free alternative to peanut butter that is high in protein) — I love Maranatha Almond Butter

Dark Chocolate Chips (less sugar than milk or semi-sweet chocolate chips) — currently I like to use Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips

Almond Flour — I use Blue Diamond currently

Coconut Milk (canned) — my current favorite is Thai Organic Coconut Milk for making Homemade Coconut Cream Ice Cream
