I want to share one of my recipes, Chocolate Coconut Cup, that I make for my sweet husband.  I am allergic to all of the ingredients myself, but he likes them.  They are sugar- and gluten-free.  They use properly refined and extracted coconut oil which is a very healthy fat and even useful in dieting.  To prepare them I use egg poaching cups arranged on a dinner plate.   I was able to find several sets of egg poaching cups on ebay or thrift stores.    Poaching is my favorite method of cooking eggs.


6 oz or 180 ml of coconut oil, melted, 
2 oz or 60cc scoop of xylitol
4.75 oz or 140 cc of raw organic Cacao powder (2 70cc scoops) 
raw organic coconut flakes


Measure the coconut oil into a small saucepan and melt, I usually just estimate 7 spoonfuls close to what I think the egg cups hold.

Stir in the scoop of xylitol and 2 scoops of Cacao powder and mix well.  The xylitiol crystals will remain at the bottom.   Other sweeteners could be used instead if xylitol is a problem, such as Stevia or perhaps honey, I'm not sure what that would do to the texture.

Spoon the chocolate mixture into the egg cups, usually about 3 spoonfulls per cup, trying to get the crystals on the bottom evenly distributed.

Spoon some coconut flakes into each cup, approximately 1 heaping teaspoon per cup, and press them into the chocolate with the spoon.

Chill in the refrigerator to harden.  Dried fruit or nuts could be added instead or in addition to coconut.  My husband usually cuts the chocolate into quarters with a knife to eat them.

The round shape of the poaching cups makes me think of math formulas relating to circles, they involve a very important and pervasive formula constant, Pi, Greek letter ∏.  Recently I found a marvelous website that presents a positive proof that God authored the Bible, it involves the first verse in the Bible, Genesis 1:1-  "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth."  
Genesis 1:1 standard gematria

The formula is based on the gematria of the Hebrew words, which is based on the numerical value given to each letter of the alphabet, which added together gives the value of the word as above.  How this proves the divine authorship of the Bible is explained in this wonderful website with lots of mathematical information about numbers in the Bible and the formula to derive Pi to the 5th decimal place.   

A parallel is found in John 1:1, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and God was the Word."  The gematria of the words in this verse, based on the numerical values of the Greek Alphabet, are used in the same kind of formula to determine the value of a higher math constant known as "e", used in calculus.  Both formulas are demonstrated in this website, from which the inserts come-

John 1:1 standard greek gematria

Another series of websites address these formulas in addition to other geometric marvels from the Bible, which show forth an intellectual basis for belief in God's supernatural authorship of the Bible.

I would hope if you are an intellectual person and in need of some intellectual proof of the existence of God and divine authorship of the Bible, these websites would help you.

As for me, I started as a small child to observe God in nature.   I studied the plants, and the animals, and  at the same time learned about God from my parents and church.  I was able to see the hand of my loving God in all of His Creation.  I grew up to study Biology, but having to learn about and study Evolution could not extinguish what I knew of God in my heart.  I can feel and have experienced many times His loving care.  Twice in San Diego He warned me, through a still small voice, of the hidden presence of rattlesnakes in my yard, and three times where I live now He warned me of deer on or by the road so that I slowed down and passed them safely.

If you never had the privilege of growing up being taught about God's great love for you and plan of eternal salvation, or you have been taught different beliefs instead of the Bible, ask yourself if you are willing to risk your eternity when God demonstrated such proof of the truth of His Word and wants to surround you with His love and adopt you into His family, when you accept His grace extended to you through His Son Jesus, whose Hebrew name is Yeshua, meaning Salvation, who Himself took our sins and diseases away when He suffered for us on the cross, and paid in full, even overpaid, the penalty for the sins of the world, so we can come boldly before God's throne as His sons and daughters.

Accept His grace and new life today.

  1. Thanks for sharing a clear salvation message. Believers build one another up through testimony. Thanks for linking on Amanda's Books and More. God bless!

  2. Thanks for the encouragement and for hosting, Christina!

  3. Such a lovely post, Hannah, very inspiring! And chocolate is something I do like! :)

  4. Thanks, Linda, I love chocolate but am allergic. But on a few occasions I eat some anyway. Most of the time I resist, but my husband likes to eat it.

  5. Thank you for the healthy and tasty looking recipe as well as the spiritual food you shared with us! And thank you for linking to the Art of Home-Making Mondays! :)

  6. Thanks, JES, I'm glad you liked them. Thanks for hosting!
