Delicious Coconut Flour Recipes to Try ASAP

Welcome to the world of coconut flour! If you haven’t already, it’s time to stock up on the goods. I absolutely love baking and cooking with coconut flour because it’s full of fiber and is even paleo-friendly. With the right ingredients it’s a great way to make your favorite treats grain & gluten free.

What is coconut flour?

Not to be confused with shredded coconut, coconut flour is made from coconut meat that has been dried and ground up into a fine powder. When coconut milk is made, the bits leftover are often turned into coconut flour suitable for cooking and baking.

How to use coconut flour for cooking and baking

Coconut flour is one of my favorite flours to bake with because a little goes a long way. It’s super absorbent, so you typically don’t need much when you’re cooking and baking. Coconut flour adds a natural sweetness to recipes, which makes it the perfect flour for treats and baked goods! Unlike regular flour, you can also safely use coconut flour in no bake recipes.

The recipes below are all divided into different categories and ways to use coconut flour. You’ll find muffins, bread & pancakes, cookies, brownies & bars, cakes and pies, no bake treats and even savory coconut flour recipes.

How do I substitute coconut flour for regular flour?

The short answer is I wouldn’t recommend it. Coconut flour bakes up much denser than regular flours because there is no gluten, so I’d always recommend sticking with the recipe ratios to ensure that your recipe comes out the way it’s supposed to. Coconut flour cannot be substituted 1:1 with regular flour.

How healthy is coconut flour?

Everyone’s nutritional needs and definitions of “healthy” are unique, but there are tons of health benefits to cooking and baking with coconut flour:

  1. Coconut flour is naturally grain and gluten free. This makes it a great flour to use in baking for people with celiac disease or who are sensitive to wheat and other grains.
  2. It’s lower in carbs. If you’re looking to watch your carb intake for any reason, recipes using coconut flour are a great alternative to ones that use an all purpose or wheat flour.
  3. It’s packed with nutrients. One of the best parts about coconut flour is that it naturally packs fiber, protein and healthy fats all while being gluten and grain free. The extra nutrients will make your recipes deliciously filling, and you’ll find that you won’t have to use as much sweetener because of the natural sweetness in coconut flour.

It’s time to stock up on this beloved coconut flour and get your bake on! I hope you find some new delicious, easy recipes using coconut flour that you love. If you make any of these, be sure to head to the recipe itself to leave a comment and a rating! I greatly appreciate it. Enjoy, xo!
