Coconut Flour Uses – Wisdom Wednesday

Just continuing my Coconut Flour theme from last Wisdom Wednesday’s Coconut Flour Benefits.

I didn’t know this information and I have used Coconut Flour in recipes incorrectly; results were reflective of my lack of knowledge about how to successfully use coconut flour in recipes.

First: Coconut flour can be used in both sweet and savoy recipes. You can substitute it for other flours when making bread, pancakes, cookies, muffins, or other baked goods.

Important Note: Coconut flours tends to absorb more liquids than other flours. For this reason, it cannot be used as a one-to-one replacement.

For Best Results: Start by substituting 1/4 cup (30 grams) of coconut flour for every cup (120 grams) of all-purpose flour. You may also want to try increasing the total quantity of liquids by the amount of coconut flour you added.

For Example: If you used 1/4 cup (30 grams) of coconut flour, make sure to pour in 1/4 cup (60 ml) of additional liquids. Remember that coconut flour tends to be denser than other flours, and doesn’t bind as easily.

Bakers Recommend: Mix coconut flour with other flours or add an egg for each 1/4 cup (30 grams) of coconut flour to help give your end product a fluffier texture.

Now I know! … and you do too!
