We’re pretty nuts for coconut flour. Not only is it gluten-free and Paleo-friendly, but the tropical flavor lends a special flavor that’s both distinct and delicious. It’s made from coconut meat that’s been dehydrated and finely ground, leaving behind a lighter-than-air flour that’s ready to party in your next batch of muffins, tray of cookies, or afternoon cake. Another bonus are the added nutrients it serves up—like protein, fiber, iron, and vitamin C, which helps make your meals (and let’s face it, treats) a bit more wholesome.
Coconut Flour Cooking Tips
Before you go off and start tweaking your favorite recipes to make them gluten-free, here are a few things you need to know. Coconut flour absorbs a lot of liquid when it bakes, so follow recipes to the letter, especially the first time around. And if your dough looks a bit thick, not to worry—that’s to be expected when baking with coconut flour. One ratio to try is to swap in ¼ to ⅓ cup coconut flour for every 1 cup of regular flour, and add an extra egg to help keep things fluffy. Once you start experimenting, you’ll have a perfectly tailored recipe in no time.
