Have you guys tried coconut flour yet? I’m a huge fan of this grain-free flour and often incorporate it into different recipes, such as these coconut flour blueberry muffins. If you haven’t tried baking with coconut flour yet, there is definitely a learning curve – but once you get the hang of it, it’s a wonderful ingredient to work into your weekly uses. Hopefully this coconut flour recipe can get you started!

What I like about coconut flour:

  • Three out of six of our family members are gluten-free, so this provides a solid grain-free option for us to work with.
  • Coconut flour is rich in protein, fiber and fat (don’t fear it!!) and is therefore filling.
  • Low sugar content, low calorie and low on the glycemic index (meaning it won’t spike your blood sugar).

Baking and making recipes with coconut flour

You cannot substitute coconut flour for whole wheat flour on a 1:1 basis, and it becomes dense when cooked or baked. With this being said, I suggest following recipes with coconut flour when you are first getting started so that liquids are adequately proportioned. Think of coconut flour as somewhat of a sponge; it does well with self-rising ingredients, such as how it is used with eggs in this coconut flour blueberry muffin recipe.

Dr. Axe recommends using an equal ratio of liquid to coconut flour and my friend Jenny from Nourished Kitchen has a great reference with additional information for baking with coconut flour. I use this coconut flour, and I like to store mine in the refrigerator to prevent spoilage. I used this brand in making these coconut flour muffins and other coconut flour recipes.
