  • 1/4 cup organic gelatin powder
  • 1/2 cup raw and organic coconut oil, melted at room temperature
  • 1 free-range organic egg
  • 1-2 tbsp water

Preparation and use:

First, preheat your oven to 350°F. Combine the ingredients in a large bowl, and stir well until everything is well combined. If your mixture is too saggy, add some more coconut flour. You should get the same consistency as Play Dough.

Split the mixture into golf ball sized forms, and place them on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Use a spoon to flatten the balls. Bake until the edges turn golden brown. This should take about 20 minutes. Take the baking tray out of the oven, and let the treats cool completely. Transfer them in an air-tight container, and keep it in your fridge. They will remain good for several weeks, and up to a few months if you store them in the freezer.
