Coconut Flour Recipes

By Carine Claudepierre -

Coconut Flour is one of the best keto-friendly flours. It’s relatively cheap, you can find it everywhere, and you can even make your own!

It has a sweet taste with a delicious coconutty flavor, but coconut can be a bit tricky to use. Especially if you don’t follow a recipe designed to use coconut flour.

The coconut flour recipes below are all low-carb, easy-to-make keto recipes that I’ve triple tested so you are sure to succeed!

Coconut Flour

What Is Coconut Flour?

Coconut flour is one of my 4 favorite keto flours. It’s low in carbs (about 21 grams of carbs per 100 grams) and contains a lot of fiber and nutrients.

It’s made from dried coconut meat, ground into a fine flour, similar to the way almond flour is made.

Coconut flour has an extremely high water absorption rate, it can suck up much more moisture than almond flour or wheat flour.

Is Coconut Flour Healthy?

Coconut Flour is considered a very healthy flour by nutritionists.

It has many potential health benefits:

  • Gluten-Free – so it’s a better for gluten allergies.
  • Grain-Free – so it’s paleo-friendly.
  • High in Fiber – so it’s good for your guts.
  • Good Source of Protein – 6 grams of protein per 1/4 cup serving.
  • High in Iron – a typical 1/4 cup serving contains 11% of your Daily Value.
  • Low in Carbs – with just 8 grams of net carbs per 1/4 cup serving.

It also contains some essential micronutrients like potassium, so it’s also good for your heart.

Will Coconut Flour Taste Like Coconut?

To some extent, yes. But it doesn’t leave an overpowering taste at all.
However, if you are not into coconut at all, it might be better to look for alternative keto flours like almond flour.

Can I Swap Coconut Flour for Almond Flour?

No, Coconut flour and almond flour cannot be swapped. Coconut flour is much more water-absorbent than almond flour, so swapping them will drastically change the texture of your baked goods.

Can I Substitute Almond Flour for Coconut Flour?

No, you can’t substitute one for the other because of their vastly different chemistry.
If a recipe calls for coconut flour, you have to use coconut flour. But if a recipe doesn’t use coconut flour, you cannot use it.

Is Coconut Flour Gluten-Free?

Absolutely! It’s a 100% gluten-free flour.

Does Coconut Flour Go Bad?

Yes, coconut flour generally expires after about 12 months at room temperature. But with the recipes below, there’s no risk that you’ll have any lasting that long!

Can You Eat Coconut Flour Raw?

Yes, Coconut Flour is one of the few flours that can be eaten raw.

What Can I Make With Coconut Flour?

I use coconut flour in so many of my baking recipes! Find my favorite below.

You can also find my favorite almond flour recipes.
