Coconut Flour – Something Different to Bake WithPosted: May 20, 2012 Filed under: In The Kitchen with Millie- How To's 2 Comments
Coconut flour is a great gluten-free alternative flour. I’ve been baking with coconut flour for several years, mainly because of its low-carbohydrate nature. Plus, I’ve enjoyed the creativity others have put into developing tasty recipes. Besides being a nice alternative to wheat flour, coconut flour has many benefits.
- Low in carbohydrates
- High in fiber
- Rich in protein
- Very filling
Keep in mind that since coconut flour is not grain based and contains no gluten, it does not perform like wheat flour. Because coconut flour is very absorbent, only small amounts are used. Sifting coconut flour is a good idea because it tends to clump. And lastly, coconut flour is dry so any recipe you see will require lots of eggs.
I have bought coconut flour at Whole Foods but I’ve found it less expensive to order online.
