Experimenting with Coconut flour!

 

So I’ve been using coconut oil for a while now as it is nutritionally dense and has amazing health benefits. So when I saw coconut flour on the shelf at Holland and Barrett I grabbed a bag to see if it would be a nifty gluten free replacement for flour.  I do have a sweet tooth and have loved baking but my awareness of my waistline meant that I neglected this hobby.  Coconut flour is versatile and there are plenty of recipes online that include it!  Many are refined sugar free and high in protein meaning they are a great snack to reach for post-workout snack!

My first attempt was banana bread.  It’s a great way to use up those pesky brown bananas that sit there and make your kitchen top work surface look untidy and uncared for.

I found the recipe on this site here.

I have made it a few times more and I found double sifting the flour makes the texture more fluffy and less ‘grainy’.

 

Here’s a picture of what it looked like! Yes, I did add a sprinkling of choc chips on the top!
