I recently purchased some coconut flour for cooking. I thought it would be a good alternative to wheat flour and then I began reading up on all of the benefits of coconut flour. First of all, it’s gluten free, so if you’re allergic to gluten, it’s good that there is yet another alternative to wheat flour. It’s also high in fiber and protein and can be used in muffins or quick breads to substitute for wheat flour OR you can substitute 10-30% of the grain-based flour in other standard wheat-based recipes to add extra fiber. And, since organic coconut flour contains natural sugar from the coconut, baked goods need less sugar and also have a mildly sweet coconut taste. Tropical Traditions’ organic coconut flour is great for mixing in shakes and smoothies for an extra boost of protein.
Right now through January 10th, Tropical Traditions coconut flour is 30% off. Check out the website to purchase organic coconut flour and get some great recipes, too!
