Coconut Flour

  • 1 cup weight = 112 grams
  • Very high in fiber (almost 60%), low in carbs, sweet fragrance, adds moisture to baked goods, dense. Usually well tolerated by people who have multiple allergies. People on low-carb diets often bake with 100 percent coconut flour.

Store in: at room temperature or in the refrigerator or freezer to extend shelf life.
How to use: for best results, add up to 15 percent to a flour blend.
Watch out for: too much can create a dry and very dense end product. Recipes using 100 percent coconut flour, usually call for extra eggs to create height and airiness. When baking with coconut flour, always use parchment paper as the flour is quite sticky. Refrigerate baked goods made with coconut flour to prevent spoilage.
Substitution: Try white rice flour
