10 Cozy Coconut Flour Recipes
Fluffy, gluten-free and packed with fiber and protein, coconut flour is a dreamy alternative to processed white flour.
But because coconut flour is super absorbent, it can be tricky to work with. Unlike almond flour, it cannot simply be subbed in for regular flour. Without the right ratio of eggs, dairy-free milk, and other liquids, your well-intentioned coconut flour dough can come out of the oven dry and a little funky tasting. Believe us – we’ve had some disappointments!
Luckily, trial and error have led us to create some pretty amazing recipes, and we’ve put together the best coconut flour dough treats that PaleoHacks and other bloggers have perfected. This handy list covers all the basics – sweets like cookies, brownies and muffins, and savory staples like pizza crusts and biscuits. And because we know it’s so expensive, none of these coconut flour dough recipes requires any almond flour. You’re welcome!
