But today, more and more people are looking to improve the overall health and nutritional value of their baked products, and that’s where Coconut Secret Organic Raw Coconut Flour can help. Made from 100 percent raw, unbleached coconut flour, it provides a good source of different vitamins and minerals, including protein and fiber. It also helps to lower calories, glycemic indexes, and blood sugar levels. Overall, this Organic Raw Coconut Flour is an effective way to improve any baking recipe.

A closer look at coconut flour

For those that don’t know, coconut flour is created from the meat of a coconut. The meat is scraped out, dried, and defatted before being powdered into a consistency much like traditional flour. No artificial sweeteners are added to Coconut Secret Organic Raw Coconut Flour, and while it has a slightly mild taste and scent of coconut, it doesn’t overpower with taste.

In the package, Coconut Secret Organic Raw Coconut Flour looks lighter than flour but once it's cooked, it becomes denser. It isn’t quite flour since there are no grains or nuts, but it works in a very similar way and can replace flour in almost any recipe.

Benefits of coconut flour

Baking with coconut flour can provide a boost to overall health and nutrition, and provide these amazing benefits:

  • It's paleo friendly and gluten-free, allowing those with gluten sensitivities to enjoy baked goods that they normally can’t.

  • Completely organic and free from harmful chemicals or additives.

  • Coconut Secret Organic Raw Coconut Flour is made in a secure facility that doesn’t come into contact with nuts or other allergens, so those with food allergies can eat it without worry.

  • Low glycemic score means that it has a very low impact on blood sugar levels. It could help those with diabetes more effectively manage their blood sugar.

  • High fiber content of 61 percent helps to improve digestion and promotes much better levels of gut health. It can also aid in nutrient absorption since the slower digestion allows the intestinal tract to absorb more nutrients.

  • Coconut Secret Organic Raw Coconut Flour could help to reduce the levels of bad cholesterol and improve overall cholesterol balance. This in turn can make a big impact on heart health.

  • One serving provides 4 grams of protein. Many baked goods lack protein at all, but using Coconut Secret Organic Raw Coconut Flour in a recipe can provide some of the daily recommended allowance.

  • Coconut Secret Organic Raw Coconut Flour also contains healthy saturated fats and medium chain fatty acids. These compounds help the body convert food to energy and boosts metabolic function.

All of these benefits are obtainable while still getting a great tasting products. Replacing a portion of the flour in a recipe for Coconut Secret Organic Raw Coconut Flour is an easy way to improve the overall level of nutrition of baked goods.

How to use Coconut Secret Organic Raw Coconut Flour

Instead of completely switching out with regular flour, it’s usually best to replace about 20 percent of the flour called for in a recipe with Coconut Secret Organic Raw Coconut Flour. This provides the best baking results and also helps improve nutrition by reducing calories and gluten. Some other tips to keep in mind when baking with Coconut Secret Organic Raw Coconut Flour include the following:

  • Declump Coconut Secret Organic Raw Coconut Flour before using it. Mix with a fork thoroughly before adding to a recipe—This helps remove air bubbles and clumps of the flour.

  • If recipes are turning out ‘dry’, it might be worth adding an extra egg. This is because coconut flour has a higher absorption rate due to the higher levels of fiber it contains.

  • Coconut flour can also be used in non-baking recipes. For example, it can thicken soups or stews or be used to make gravy. It can also coat meats instead of using breadcrumbs.

  • In short, anywhere that flour is used, Coconut Secret Organic Raw Coconut Flour can be used instead.

Great recipes to use with Coconut Secret Organic Raw Coconut Flour

Virtually any baking recipe that involves flour can be improved by swapping out a portion of the flour with Coconut Secret Organic Raw Coconut Flour. Here are a few great baked options to try it with:

Gluten-Free Banana Bread

This recipe already replaces traditional flour with almond flour, but it’s possible to change out a portion of that for coconut flour and get an even bigger nutritional boost.

Carrot Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

These delicious little cakes are great to use coconut flour with if you want lighter baked goodies.

Triple Ginger Cookies with Pomegranate Molasses

This sweet treat provides rich ginger taste and a big sweetness thanks to the molasses. It’s a perfect recipe to use some Coconut Secret Organic Raw Coconut Flour for a lighter texture and extra health benefits.

Reviews For Organic Raw Coconut Flour

Love it!

I love using this for pancakes! I'd like to try it for baking other things, but it does absorb liquid differently, so I'm not quite sure how you'd substitute it for regular flour.

- Samantha

Great for my curls!

I live in the desert (Las Vegas) and my hair has noticed, but even after the first use this condish left my hair holding probably 3x more moisture and air-drying with a great bounce. Very good results. And my husband likes it, too, which is a small miracle. He says it is soothing to his occasionally angry scalp. I recommend this product even for curly girls!

- Esse

Love it.

Everything I have bought from Thrive is great.

- Anna

Must Have

Definitely a must to have in my pantry. So many recipes call for coconut flour. Will be ordering again.

- Carolyn

Rancid 2 months after opening :(

I liked that this brand is already in a convenient container so I gave it a try. Perfectly normal coconut flour at first. Unfortunately, despite a far-off-next-year expiration date, there was an awful change in the taste, texture, and smell after just two months closed in a cool pantry location (I've stored other brands the same way and not had problems). I thought I'd messed up the recipe, but it became clear it was the flour. I ate barely any of the resulting bitter, gummy, awful muffins before tossing them and ended up getting sick anyway. Will be switching brands and storing in fridge or freezer to be safe.

- Emma

fav

love this flour!

- Mallory

Interesting change

Since I went gluten free I like to try different things when I am cooking and baking. I love spending time in the kitchen.

I noticed that it doesn't work exactly like wheat flour, but it's a work in progress.

- Augie

Amazing product

Coconut Secret is one of the best out there for coconut products. I love this raw coconut flour. It does sometimes make things taste a little different, but I think it is a good taste.

There are some things I prefer not to use it for, like dumplings and pot pies, but other than that I have no complaints!

- Glen Wess

Yum Coconut

I love to use coconut flour. It's amazing. I find it works best in baking. I also use it to thicken my soups every once in a while, mostly as an experiment.

You can pretty much do anything with the flour that you can do with wheat flour.

- Stacy K.

Still Working Out the Kinks

I've tried this for a couple dishes, and it certainly takes some getting used to. I needed a gluten-free alternative to the wheat flour we've been using, and coconut flour seems to be the uncontested recommendation. Maybe I need to try refining or grinding down the flour a bit more, but I still haven't found a way to make all of my dishes taste exactly the same as they did with wheat flour. It makes the recipes cook and whatnot like they're supposed to, but the taste is still a bit "off". I'm sure it will just take more experimentation, but it seems like a high-quality coconut flour that'll just take some time to figure out how to best use it.

- Susan K.

The new baking craze

I recently read a cookbook on baking with coconut flour. It's far healthier than wheat flour and it's naturally gluten-free. I thought many of the recipes sounded somewhat easy and very delicious, so I had to try it out on my own.

Boy was I surprised. You can make some wonderful snacks with a coconut flour blend. I did find that it was important to closely follow instructions. But nonetheless, I think coconut flour should be the next big thing.

- Nida R.

Okay, but not the best

We have been using healthy alternatives for many years. This is the first time we've tried organic raw coconut flour from Coconut Secret. This product is not the best we've tried, but certainly not the worst.
The flour is great for frying foods, they look delicious, but they lack that crunchy texture and flavor. The fried goods smell excellent when we're cooking, but doesn't match the flavor.

- Joel Graham

Good but not affordable

This coconut flour is good, but it's a little expensive for what you get. I'm into bread, and I like to bake mine fresh, so I'll cut my wheat flour by a fourth and add in coconut flour. It's best to sift the flour to make sure it's as smooth as possible.

I like the fact that it's all-natural and the coconut isn't heated before it's made. It's gluten free, high in protein and fiber and low in carbs. Don't care for the price, but the rest is up to snuff.

- Ona M.

A great complement to regular flour

I think of this raw coconut flour as a kind of additive to my baking needs. You can't really just change it up wholesale with regular flour, but you can cut the amount of regular flour you use and substitute coconut flour. It's packed with protein and it's healthy.

You can also use it to make soups and sauces heavier and more thick, and it's awesome sprinkled into a milkshake or protein shake after a workout. My kids love it when I mix some of the flour into pancake batter, because they can taste the coconut, but it's not too overpowering.

- Ornella Monroe

Usable in tons of recipes

Coconut flour is fantastic, but it takes some getting used to. You can't use it the exact same way as standard flour, so it takes some 'messes' before you get the right combination of egg and water. Following the directions helps, but if you're like me, you like to play around with baking to get the best results.

I really like the way the flour enhances the taste of my baking. For example, bread has a sweet aftertaste that I find pleasant. A great alternative flour that you can use in a lot of recipes, but just play around a bit with the consistency and you'll be fine.

- Orlando Mathis

Ideal For Baking

After my doctor recommended that I get off wheat products due to my gastric issues, I had to find something to use instead of wheat flour. My sister told me about coconut flour and I was a little confused. I know coconut milk is a healthy alternative to regular milk, but never knew much about coconut flour.

One big thing about it is you can't use this flour as a whole. In other words, it works best if you use it as directed, which is about a quarter cup added to another flour. I figured it out through a little trial and error, but I love this flour and how it changes the taste of bread and healthy muffins. It keeps me on my diet without having to sacrifice some food I really like.

- Odalis M.

Really good baking

I've been using this flour for a few months. I don't use anything else these days because I love what this does. I can make almost everything with this flour, but my favorite is German chocolate cake. There's a subtle flavor from the coconut that just kicks everything up a notch.

The flour is gluten-free and is also low in carbs, so even when you're making something 'devilish,' you're at least undercutting it with the base flour. The flour has no soy, wheat or nuts, which is great for me because I have a peanut allergy.
