Red Mill Coconut Flour

Recommended Posts

Red Mill coconut flour is gritty, almost like corn meal.  It didn't work in crab cakes or in a ghee roux.  (The crab cakes are quarter cup of flour to the pound of crabmeat to make six large ones, so they're not doughnuts.)

 

Is there a fine grind coconut flour?  I have Red Mill finely ground almond flour.  Should I try arrowroot?

Did you sift the coconut before you used it? I made some zucchini fritters with it (same brand) and the recipe recommended sifting and it worked perfectly.

After the sifting the coconut powder is really fine and not so gritting and clumpy. 

 

Good luck!

Hi! 

I'm new to Whole30, but I love to cook and am really excited about making my own Whole30 creations.  However, I have never used Almond Flour before and was wondering if I could just simply swap it out for flour in any receipe OR if it was more for certain specific foods.  Any suggestions are appreciated.

 

Thanks!

Lauren

It can work like flour if you're breading some chicken or fish, or in something like salmon patties.

 

Keep in mind that during a Whole30, you're not supposed to recreate baked goods like breads or muffins.

Trader Joe's has a good, finely ground coconut flour. Or try an Asian grocery store. They usually have a wide selection of coconut flour brands.

Thanks Everyone!  I passed on the almond flour, as my local store didn't have it in stock and went with Coconut Flour instead.  Looking forward to breaded chicken and finding other fun ways to use it!
