Coconut Flour

Coconut flour can be a pricey item, especially when you use it as much as I do.  Coconut flour is a great flour to use if you follow a grain free or gluten free diet.  It is high in fiber, has a slight sweetness to it and taste really great.  You do not substitute coconut flour one for one in recipes and there are a few adaptations to consider when cooking with coconut flour.  You can read my article How to Cook with Organic Coconut Flour:  Substitutions, Tips & Strategies to read more.  Coconut flour really is a great flour to cook with!

You might be surprised how easy it is to make your own coconut flour.  In this video, I will show you how to make your own coconut flour.

This week I am posting a 4 video series about coconuts.  This is the third video in this series.  You will learn the following in this whole series:

  2. Whole Lifestyle Nutrition says:

    Yes, did you see my video on how to dehydrate coconut flakes? I give you three different ways to do it. You can view it here.

    My coconut tastes almost soapy – did I just get a bad coconut – if not – is there anything I can do to make it taste better? I bought a typical brown coconut – should I buy one that is more white? Thanks

    1. hallecottis says:

      @LisaBrewerCanter Oh no Lisa…it should not taste soapy at all :( Sounds to me like you got a bad coconut. The brown one is fine to use…the white ones are younger and can be difficult to get the meat out. Be sure to shake the coconut and listen to hear the water inside. Inspect the whole coconut to make sure there are no cracks. I would try another one maybe from another grocery store.

      1. LisaBrewerCanter says:

        @hallecottis wow – I went and tried with another coconut and am happy to say it was night and day. I had bought two bad ones in a row and so did’nt know if I just wasn’t getting it. I just made some milk – which tastes AMAZING and am dehydrating the flakes for flour and butter. Can’t wait!! Thanks so much. I doubt I will ever buy Coconut milk again.

        1. hallecottis says:

          @LisaBrewerCanter Oh Lisa I am so happy you found a good coconut!! I know what you mean about canned coconut milk vs fresh coconut milk, there is no comparison. Homemade is so much better. Can’t wait to see how the dehydrated coconut, flour and butter turn out for you :)

      Have a look to see if it has a sprout in it where the 3 “eyes” are on the inside side of the coconut. Even a very small sprout will cause the nut to go off which gives it that soapy taste.

    I have started the paleo diet and was wondering if you can make coconut oil out of the butter. Could i heat it up to make the oil? x

    Please remove the drumbeat in the background.  It is very distracting and makes the audio difficult to hear.

    1. hallecottis says:

      @AddieDupreOld I got your message on the last video thank you.  It is hard to please everyone, and I  am sorry that you find this distracting.  I have toned it down in my newer videos.  Thanks for the feedback.

    2. Moira says:

      I agree with the comment about the racket in the background – very distracting and annoying. Otherwise, great information!

  7. chefmisty says:

    How long will the flour last? Does it need to be refrigerated?

  8. Jolene says:

    Is there a way to make coconut flour without the step of making coconut milk? I keep seeing the flour made from the leftover pulp, which makes sense, but what if I don’t want the milk? I have no idea what I would use it for and the taste is unpleasant to me. I purchased a fresh coconut, just to do something different with my kids, and now I’m not sure what to do with it, other than make flour. I don’t want to waste it.

    Thank you.

    Can coconut flour be used to make dumplings? Thanks for all those wonderful tips. I usually throw out the coconut trash after milking. Now I will use it all.

    1. Halle Cottis says:

      Coconut flour most likely would not work in making dumplings. I am pretty sure they would just fall apart.
