Dry coconut powder (flour) is an unsweetened powder that is produced by drying and powering coconut meat that has the oil pressed out of it. Therefore it is less fatty. It is not only a gluten free flour, it’s a grain free flour too. So for those who follow strict grain free diets, coconut flour opens up a world of delicious baked goods, it also does not trigger any allergic reactions wheat flour may cause within the body.
Use 1:1 with regular flour.
The flour is also "sweet" by itself because of the natural sugars in the coconut, meaning that you don’t have to sweeten it as much.
It’s also a high fiber, fairly high protein flour too. When you make these into muffins, breads, and cakes, they are quite filling (because of the fiber content). Although coconut flour does not contain the gluten protein, it still has significant protein content; it has more protein per serving than the other leading flours, such as white, rye or cornmeal. It's also has nearly double the amount of fiber found in wheat bran flour.
You can buy coconut oil, syrup, sugar, desiccated coconut and coconut flour in any quantity you can find, because you can simply use what you need, then package and freeze the rest. They can be used straight out of the freezer. Coconut oil (or butter at low temperatures) will keep indefinitely in your cupboard. If it has hardened because temperature has fallen below 70 degrees F, simply scoop what you need and heat.
