Coconut Crunch

Image
Do you want a crunchy snack without any bread or grains? Here is a recipe for just that using coconut flakes.

Ingredients 1 egg 1 tbsp olive oil 1 tbsp maple syrup 1 tbsp chia seed 1 tbsp flax seed 2 cups sweetened coconut flakes ¼ tsp vanilla extract Pinch of salt



Instructions Thoroughly mix all of the ingredients in a 4 by 8 baking pan. Bake at 300 degrees and take the mixture out to stir every 5 minutes until golden brown. Expect about an hour of cooking time. Allowing it to cool will make it crunchier.
Enjoy!
It goes well on it's own as a crunchy snack, as a topping with yogurt or other deserts, or even with a meat such as chicken or bacon.
Need a keto snack? Use unsweetened coconut flakes and skip the maple syrup!

In this scenario you are fully relying on your will power to do what you do not want to do. Willpower, regardless of how we define it, is not what you want to rely on. If you need to get from point A to point B, you can either setup a process that will lead you to the target by default, or go against the default path and force your way to the target. This would be analogous to swimming up stream versus reversing the flow of the water so that the default direction is in a new direction.

Removing your will power from the conversation is the key to changing a habit. Very rarely does someone go through a personal change that enables them to force themse…
