Coconut flour is gluten-free, grain-free and wheat-free, making it one of the healthiest flour if not the healthiest flour you can use in food preparation.

It is very low in carbohydrates hence it is great for diabetic recipes. Coconut flour is very high in fibre and digests easily, making it a great option for weight management.

Coconut flour can be used to prepare all the pastries that we use wheat flour to prepare but because it is gluten-free, it requires a bit of tweaking to get it to function like wheat flour in recipes. Gluten is the substance present in wheat that makes wheat flour elastic. It is the protein found in cereal grains and some people are allergic to it.

Recipes using Coconut Flour coming soon so stay tuned!

It has a mild smell of coconut. You can buy coconut flour in some shops but nothing beats the organic one you make at home free from preservatives and other unknown ingredients. ?

To make Coconut Flour, the only thing you need is the chaff or fibre you get from the blended coconuts when making Coconut Milk, Refined Coconut Oil and Virgin Coconut Oil. That chaff can also be used to makeShuku Shuku.

Watch the video below for how to make coconut flour. I made the two types, the plain Coconut Flour and the one I like to call Wholemeal Coconut Flour if there’s anything like that. lol

    BN please do a post on GMO food please. While the rest of the world is banning it I wonder why there’s a proganda in Nigeria for acceptance of GMO food. I think people should be aware of the dangers of genetically modified foods. Please use your platform not just for ‘how to marry’ but also to educate. Thank you
