• Cannaflour Keto Pumpkin Loaf 

    Boing Boing shares these words from our sponsor Real Tested CBD.

    Keto is the nutritional diet taking the health world by storm. Only way to make keto better? Add a little canna! Read on for a simple breakdown on making your own cannaflour to use in our Keto Pumpkin Loaf! Furthermore, more individuals are turning to CBD edibles, like Tribe CBD Gummies, for their dose of daily CBD. If you would rather make your own cannaflour, feel free to follow the recipe below!

    What is cannaflour and how is it made?
    Not like butter or cooking oil infusions, cannaflour encompasses cooking with and consuming ground-up cannabis. Cannaflour is easy to prepare and is a core staple of cooking with cannabis. To properly prepare your cannaflour, be sure you are using cannabis that has been decarboxylated cannabis (aka, heated) ground very finely. The preparation and storage of cannaflour is very important, to ensure freshness and taste. To decarboxylate your cannabis, preheat oven to 200-250 degrees. On a large baking sheet, spread your cannabis and place in oven between 40-60 minutes, rotating the sheet or flipping the cannabis throughout to ensure even heating. Remove from oven and allow to cool. Next grind your cannabis as finely as possible, using a blender or food processor.

    Next, combine ½ cup finely ground cannabis with 1 cup flour of your choice for a cannaflour mixture. Or keep your ground and dried cannabis in a separate air-tight container and add to flour or recipes directly. Keep in mind, whether as a combined mixture or on its own, cannaflour will have an earthy herbal taste to it. For this recipe, our cannaflour preference is 1 tablespoon of pure cannaflour combined with almond and coconut flour as dry ingredients for a great keto-friendly mix.

    Now that we have our cannaflour, let's get down to the tasty goodness! Read on for a delicious and elevating Keto Pumpkin Loaf.

  • Win a guitar from Loog

    This post is a heartfelt "thank you" from Loog Guitars CEO Rafael Atijas. Loog is a company that we at Boing Boing are proud to have helped grow. We are thrilled to see them join us as a sponsor. To enter for a chance to win one of their guitars, email gadgets@boingboing.net by November 26, 2015.

    Four years ago I had an idea: what if a children's guitar wasn't just small but also had other features that made it fun and easy to learn how to play?

    That's how I came up with Loog Guitars: a line of 3-string kits that kids can build with their parents and, in that way, connect with their instrument at a deeper level. The 3 strings still let kids and beginners play chords and, therefore, any song. But, with fewer things to learn, it's easier to play and to make sense of what they are playing.
