  1. Wow, Sunny, these look incredible! Love the frosting, too! I need to restock on my coconut shreds (and coconut flakes)! Will share this recipe with others for sure. 🙂

  2. looks delish! I love the combination of textures 🙂

  3. This looks good but probably shouldn’t be in your candida elimination tag? It has a starch, honey and carrots – those feed candida. Other than that- I’d say it looks yummy

    • Tammy, I appreciate your feedback. This is absolutely one of our favorite dishes and has been approved by our naturalist who worked very closely with me when developing our Paleolithic Approach to Candida Elimination.

      In 12 servings, the amount of starch and honey in this dessert is relatively minimal, and well within the traditional ACD reintroductory recommendations. Raw honey is an allowed sweetener during the final phases of most any ACD (save those which recommend a vegan lifestyle), and you’ll be eating far more starch in ACD allowed foods like sweet potatoes than you would by eating a single serving on this particular treat.

      Plus, the bonus of the caprylic acid found in the coconut oil throughout this recipe (in fairly great amounts) will only help in our efforts to keep yeast overgrowth at bay.

      Again, I appreciate your feedback, but my labels are heavily weighed before publishing any recipe. I stand by this one and hope, maybe, you’ll be willing to give this a try during your reintroductory phase of the ACD!

      <3 Thanks!

      -Sunny
