Homemade Coconut Flour
When you are going to go gluten-free there may be a few things you'll want to consider: knowing the best ways of making bread with gluten-free flour, discovering gluten-free dessert recipes, finding flour that is gluten-free, and which is the healthiest gluten-free flour there is. There are two flours that come to mind right away, almond flour and coconut flour. These are both perfect for making gluten-free snacks, gluten-free dessert recipes, and so many other gluten-free treats in the kitchen. Coconut flour is one of the healthiest gluten-free flours because of the high levels of healthy fats found in coconuts.
- 2-4 cups unsweetened dried coconut pulp
- If you are not sure how to make coconut pulp, please go to the Coconut Milk recipe to make coconut pulp when making a batch of coconut milk. If you do not want the milk you still will need to go through the same process to make the pulp.
- Once you have the pulp you will need to completely dry it out by placing it in the oven on the center rack for 4 hours at 170-180°F.
- Remove the dried coconut pulp from the oven and allow it to cool. Place the dried pulp in a Vitamix Machine or blender and mix it into a very fine powder.
