How do I use coconut flour?
In much the same way you would regular flour – to bake and create! The beauty of coconut flour is that thanks to its naturally high fibre content, you don’t actually need as much coconut flour as you might regular flour! Think about swapping 1 cup of wheat flour for 1/3 cup of coconut flour, an egg, and 1/3 cup of an extra liquid. How good! Moist baking is always a plus in our books.
How do they make coconut flour?
They don’t use the coconut juice, or the husk! They actually dry the coconut meat, and extract the oil, before grounding it into a fine powder! Man, coconuts really are such a versatile beast.
