How to Cook with Coconut Flour

Coconut Flour is Gluten-free and needs to have eggs added for baking purposes
You can make a wide variety of baked goodies using coconut flour. However, when baking with coconut flour, the standard rules that you use for other flours do not apply. If you want to avoid culinary blunders, it's important to remember some basic rules.
Coconut flour will just fall apart if you substitute it 100% for another flour. However, through trial and error, and with the help of a terrific source, I've discovered that if you add eggs to the recipe, you can use 100% coconut flour in a recipe. The secret is to add one egg per ounce of coconut flour (on the average). Why eggs? Coconut flour has no gluten and the eggs take the place of gluten.
If you are wheat sensitive, looking for delicious ways to add healthy fiber to your diet, or just want to try something new and delicious -- then you have nothing to lose and everything to gain (like help to support a healthy weight) by using coconut flour!
Easy to add to smoothies and desserts or to use as a thickening agent in sauces and gravies, coconut flour makes a great substitute for other flours called for in almost any recipe! It's a great way to add fiber and flavor to your diet, so what are you waiting for?
