20 Coconut Flour Recipes To Stay Full While Losing Weight

Gluten-free? Check. Nut allergies? A-ok. Coconut flour is a more nutritious alternative to traditional flours, has no nuts or grains, and is extremely healthy. High in fiber, and great for regulating blood sugars, coconut flour is totally diabetic-friendly. Coconut flour has properties that keep your metabolism and digestion working perfectly. [1] 

The main thing to remember when using coconut flour is that it is super absorbent. The rule of thumb is to use ¼-⅓ a cup of coconut flour in place of 1 cup grain-based flour. Adding extra moisture is necessary – doubling (or tripling) the eggs in your recipes will keep the moisture content up and your baked goods soft and moist. [1]
