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:

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.

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!
