Prep Time: 5

Minutes Cook Time: 25 Minutes

Serves 4


1 LB Wild Turkey Breast

1/4 Cup Coconut Flour

2 TBSP Parmesan Cheese

1/4 TSP Salt

1/2 TSP Black Pepper

1/2 TSP Cumin

1/2 TSP Garlic Powder

1/4 Cup Coconut Oil

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

In a shallow bowl, mix together everything except for the turkey and the oil. Dip the turkey into the oil, and then into the dry mixture, coating evenly. Place a baking rack into a shallow pan so the turkey can cook on both sides better. Set the turkey on the rack and bake for 11 minutes. Flip the turkey over and bake an additional 11 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.
