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.

  • 1 cup Shredded Coconut or fresh coconut
  • 2 cups Water


  • Pour the shredded coconut or fresh coconut with hot water from the tap into a mixing bowl and let the mixture rest for about 20 minutes.
  • Blend the mixture in a high-speed blender for a few minutes until the mixture is cloudy and creamy and there are no more large coconut pieces.
  • Use a very fine strainer or a cheesecloth to extract the pulp from the mixture.
  • Keep the liquid and store it in a bottle, it's coconut milk.
  • Transfer the coconut pulp onto a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper. I recommend using a baking sheet over a flat cookie sheet as the pulp might drip otherwise.
  • Bake the coconut pulp for at least 60 minutes in the oven preheated to 160°F (70°C). You can let it bake for longer at lower temperatures.
  • Use the parchment paper as a funnel to place all the dried coconut pulp back into the blender and blend it again.
  • Transfer the homemade coconut flour into a sealed container and use it in any of my coconut flour recipes!

Hi, I'm Carine, the food blogger, author, recipe developer, published author of a cookbook and many ebooks, and founder of Sweet As Honey.

I'm passionate about sharing all my easy and tasty recipes that are both delicious and healthy. My expertise in the field comes from my background in chemistry and years of following a keto low-carb diet. But I'm also well versed in vegetarian and vegan cooking since my husband is vegan.

I now eat a more balanced diet where I alternate between keto and a Mediterranean Diet

Cooking and Baking is my true passion. In fact, I only share a small portion of my recipes on Sweet As Honey. Most of them are eaten by my husband and my two kids before I have time to take any pictures!

All my recipes are at least triple tested to make sure they work and I take pride in keeping them as accurate as possible.
