Holistic Hottie™: Grain-Free Popovers!! Really?

Absolutely!!  Below is a photo of proof that they can and do exist.  They were a gift from one of my wonderful group exercise students and the recipe was inspired by one of Malika Duke's:





Ingredients:
4 eggs
1/2 cup coconut milk
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar (optional)
2 Tbs coconut flour
3 Tbs tapioca starch
*for color and a hint of flavor, add 1 tsp of cocoa powder to the batter.


Directions:
1. With an electric blender or whisk, blend together all ingredients until there are no lumps and batter is slightly bubbly.
2. Fill popover cups (or small muffin pans) about two-thirds full. Bake at 425 for about 20 minutes. Best served when hot. Like doughnuts... almost!

Variation: Replace the vinegar with almond or vanilla extract and add fruit or spices for a sweeter treat. For stuffed pastries grate cheese, mince meat, crush herbs or chop sausage and place in the pan before pouring the batter over it!
