Coconut flour is a great staple for the paleo diet. What’s so great about it? Well I’ll tell you; it’s a naturally gluten-free alternative to wheat, it has a high percentage of high dietary fibre which means that it will help to make you feel fuller for longer, and in turn will help aid weight loss.
One good thing to remember with coconut flour is that YES you can use it in any recipe and substitute it for any other flour. However, what you need to remember is that because it doesn’t have any gluten it doesn’t bind as well as wheat flour. So you should add 1 egg per one ounce of coconut flour because the egg will take the place of the gluten and will help to bind the flour. Happy baking!!
