The rise of gluten insensitivity has led to the innovation of a whole range of substitute flours ground from host of alternative nuts and grains. What’s become clear is that the benefits of non-wheat flours go far beyond gastrointestinal health. Such is definitely the case with Baker Josef ’s Organic Coconut Flour. It’s not only a healthy option, but it’s also phenomenally flavored with a long list of food applications.
Our Coconut Flour is made simply from organic coconuts that are grown in the Philippines. The meat from the harvested coconuts is dried and defatted (i.e. the oil is extracted) and then ground into a fine meal. That’s all we put in the bag: Pure, gluten-free coconut meal with no additives. It’s naturally high in protein, high in fiber, and low in carbs. But this alternative Flour is not just easy on your entrails—it works well in a wide variety of recipes from savory fried chicken to sugary cookies.*
Use it for breading fish before you fry or bake it. Thicken soups, sauces, and gravies while at the same time, adding an attractive hint of coconut aroma and flavor. Make fabulous macaroons, or a piecrust for that extra-coconutty, coconut crème pie. You might even dissolve a spoonful in water for a high-fiber beverage.
The 16-ounce, reclosable bag is just $2.99. We recommend storing it in the fridge for freshness. We also recommend that if you give your significant other a bouquet of flours, you make Baker Josef ’s Organic Coconut Flour the centerpiece of your arrangement.
* Keep in mind, Coconut Flour is unique and can’t simply be swapped out 1 to 1 for wheat flour without making other recipe adjustments. If it’s new to you, start with recipes created expressly for Coconut Flour. There are two on the back of the bag to help get you started!
