Coconut flour is my favourite low carb and gluten free flour to bake with. It can be used in a variety of baked goods from muffins, pizza bases and cakes. Here are a selection of 25 recipes with coconut flour.
When you first step away from baking with wheat flours and start using low carb and gluten free flours it can be a bit daunting at first. Especially with coconut flour as due to the high fibre content you will find that you do not use as much flour in a recipe as wheat flour. If you recoil in shock at the price of coconut flour, remember that you are going to use a lot less volume in your recipes compared to wheat flour. You do need to add a lot of moisture into coconut flour recipes as the coconut flour sucks up any liquid like a sponge. Generally, you would use ¼ cup to ⅓ cup of coconut flour for 1 cup of wheat flour, but probably double the eggs. I find that coconut flour is great with high water content items such as zucchini as it sucks up all the excess moisture faster than I can order at an open bar!
