Nutiva Organic Coconut Flour Recipes
Nutiva’s Organic Coconut Flour is finely ground from dried, defatted fresh coconut meat, making it naturally gluten-free with a lower glycemic index than most traditional flours. Its rich texture and natural sweetness make it great for baking.
Coconut flour can be used as a substitute for up to 1/3 the normal amount of a recipe’s flour. Note that you’ll need to add up to 1/3 more liquids as well.
If using coconut flour as a substitute for the entire amount of traditional flour, be aware that you’ll need to adjust your recipe accordingly. Because it is non-glutinous, it is necessary to add egg, chia gel, or even substitute a small amount of tapioca flour to assure that it gels properly.
