  • 2 lemons, the peel
  • 3 egg

  • 450 ml / 2 cup coconut flakes

Cooking instructionsHow to

  1. Heat the oven to 175 degrees Celsius / gas mark 3 / 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. If you want to add fat, melt the coconut oil.
  3. Wash 2 lemons and grate the peel finely.
  4. Whip 3 eggs in a bowl. Stir in the coconut oil, if you are using it, 1.5 tbsp agave syrup, lemon peel and 450 ml / 2 cup coconut flakes in the bowl.
  5. Put baking paper on a baking tray and form 10 cakes. Bake for 14 minutes in the middle of the oven.
  6. When the cakes are baking, take a few moments to be mindful. Pull up a chair and sit down so that you feel the smells from the oven. Close your eyes and breathe gently in and out through the nose. How does the food smell? What scents are the strongest? What happens in the body when you smell the food? Does your stomach rumble? Just sit and breathe in and out through your nose for a minute.
