Coconut flour is a very high-fiber gluten-free & vegan flour.
Coconut flour is considered a low-carb flour making it a great choice for keto baking or for those monitoring their blood sugar levels.
Coconut flour is rich in healthy fats such as MCTs (medium chain triglycerides) that have been scientifically proven to help regulate metabolism (great for weight-loss!), help fight yeast (candida) throughout the body, and provide a good, clean source of natural energy.
In relation to most other flours, coconut flour is also a high-protein fiber.
Coconut flour is most definitely a flour all unto itself! If you’ve used this finicky flour before thinking that you could just sub it in recipes I’m sure you learned rather quickly that it just does not work. Coconut flour is super absorbent. In fact, 1/4 cup of coconut flour is equivalent to 1 cup of most other flours! It can also be quite tricky to work with coconut flour without the use of eggs as a binding agent (ever notice how many eggs are in most coconut flour recipes?!). That’s where these genius vegan + gluten-free coconut flour recipes come in! Please do take a peek and find yourself inspired!
