  1. in the bowl of a food processor, add all ingredients, except for remaining coconut oil
  2. blend until smooth, should look like cake batter
  3. heat a large frying pan over medium heat. add half of coconut oil
  4. drop dough into pan in 1/4 c scoops
  5. fry. once edges start to look brown, flip
  6. place cooked pupusas on a plate covered with paper towel


To make coleslaw: mix 4 c pre shredded cabbage and carrots with ½c apple cider vinegar, ¼ c water, ½ sea salt, and ½ tsp herbs of choice. best if it sits for a couple hours. I used Beyond the Bite for Life’s recipe for AIP Slow Cooker Pulled Pork (which is awesome by the way), added my own version of coleslaw and of course an AIP guacamole. These freeze well!
