    That looks really good..Could you point me towards the protein powder she used?
    Would almond flour work as well?

    Chareva buys big bags of vanilla protein powder at Costco. The brand is CytoSport.

    Is this posted on a site that a kindle fire can play it on? I can’t see it here.

    It’s an embedded YouTube video:

    I just asked Sara to play it on her Kindle Fire. She had to press a button in the middle of the screen to play it. The button was shaped like an arrow pointing down, presumably for download.

    I LOL’d at the last part: “This part isn’t fun.”

    I completely agree!

    Part of the process, but yes, not the fun part.

    Those look really good. I might try experimenting with peanut butter instead of the peppermint extract.

    Interestingly, they tasted more like lemon than peppermint. No idea why.

    Of all the aspects of coconut, the meat is the one part that I cannot tolerate…texture wise. I have no problem with coconut flour however and wonder if that would work as well as the meat.

    I’m sure it would. Chareva just tosses the coconut into The Bullet to pulverize it into flour.

    Oh my! That version of BH&G cookbook is vintage. It looks like the same version my mother has. All the women in my family used to get that cookbook (the latest version) when we started our own households. Mine was from 1978 (complete with lots of canned soup recipes.) My mother’s was probably more like 1955. I still use mine, though. Lots of classics.

    I believe Chareva found that cookbook among the books the previous owner of our house left behind.

    Does the stevia aftertaste get cooked out with baking? I have tried to use it for coffee or other non baked stuff and can’t get over the aftertaste it leaves.

    Sometimes you can taste a bit of it. I don’t notice it with Truvia.

    Tom, protein is spell incorrectly, I didn’t notice but my roommate did. Lol, oh well!

    Okay, thanks. I’ll alert the title-maker. (She’s dyslexic, by the way, so I should have thought to proof-read the titles. My bad.)

    Please excuse this seemingly random and off tic nature of this post.

    Well, this is the third video you’ve posted that is simply blank on the iPad. I assume you’ve done it in “flash”, which died awhile ago. (Yes, it did. Really. It’s dead.)
    Dude, it’s time to learn HTML 5! Hurry before the “post PC” world passes you by.
    You can take solace in knowing that it isn’t nearly as difficult as learning Perl.

    Obtusely, I owe most of my personal success to excellent authors of a group of Perl programming books. (Just thought I’d throw that out there… (-:)
    Maybe there aren’t any good authors anymore.
    I miss the old days but I only read your site on an iPad.

    They’re just YouTube videos. Someone else mentioned not being able to view the videos on a Kindle Fire. So I had Sara try it on hers. She had to tap the video, then tap a button that enabled it to download and play. Maybe it’s the same on an iPad?

      It occurred to me to try the other style of embed code from YouTube. Tell me if you can see the video now.

        Thank you. I’m glad the other embed code does the trick.
