Organic Coconut Flour is dried, de-fatted coconut meat and ground into a fine powder. It's also an excellent source of fibre and a non-grain alternative protein source. The mild coconut flavour works well in both sweet and savoury recipes.
Substitutes: Coconut flour can be substituted for up to 1/3 of wheat flour in standard recipes. Due to it's high fibre count. it absorbs a lot of liquid, so increase the liquid in the recipe by an amount equal to the amount of coconut flour being added in. So if you are adding in 1/3C coconut flour, make sure there is at least 1/3C of all liquids in the recipe.

While coconut flour is higher in carbs and lower in fats than other gluten-free flours, you use less of it in recipes, so the carbs equal themselves out over a whole recipe.
Allergens: Contrary to their name, coconuts are not tree nuts and are from the palm family. Coconut rarely causes allergy. Most allergists will not suggest coconut avoidance unless there has been an allergic reaction to coconut.
