Long story short, I was intrigued to try this wonder ingredient out for myself. I popped on over to my neighborhood Whole Foods and scooped up some bulk coconut flour, (which was surprisingly inexpensive). I made the lemon-blueberry muffins from the initial blog post that piqued my interest. The muffins were moist, albeit a bit dense, with an underlying nutty flavor. Overall, pretty good. Don't mind my husband who turned up his nose at them upon the first mention of the word, "coconut." (Sigh). One fact I did learn about coconut flour, is that the flour is incredibly dense, and somewhat clumpy, thus it requires significantly more liquid to balance out the texture (i.e. 6 eggs instead of 2).
While I'm not sure I'm a coconut flour convert quite yet, I would suggest to the curious baker out there that it's worth a try, especially for those who are gluten-sensitive. In the mean time, I'm going to use my remaining flour to try out coconut flour banana nut bread. I'll report back :)
Have you tried coconut flour? If so, what are your favorite recipes?
