Learn lots of tips on how to bake with coconut flour, including lots of coconut flour recipes.
This Wednesday, March 27th at 12 Noon Eastern Standard Time, I’m hosting a Google Plus Hangout with Bob’s Red Mill’s test kitchen resident expert and chef, Sarah House. Sarah will help demystify how to bake with coconut flour. I don’t know if you’ve tried baking with coconut flour before, but it can be a little tricky. Coconut flour doesn’t work quite the same as most gluten-free flours. It’s a great gluten-free, grain-free flour, so to help you all get your feet wet, I’ve invited Bob’s Red Mill to help teach us the fundamentals of baking with coconut flour.
We’ll have a panel of talented food bloggers attending too – Lexie from Lexie’s Kitchen, Kelly from The Spunky Coconut, Carolyn from All Day I Dream About Food, Cara from Cara’s Cravings and Jane The Heritage Cook.
Meanwhile, here are some of Bob’s Red Mill’s Favorite Coconut Flour Recipes (including one that I developed for them ;)):
Coconut Country Biscuits
Coconut Curry Muffins
Chocolate Marble Cupcakes (my recipe)
Rosemary Goat Cheese Scones
Vanilla Coconut Pound Cake
You can view even more recipes using coconut flour here. For the Coconut Pancake recipe I made (pictured above), you can find it here (I just added some dark chocolate chips for fun).

I absolutely love baking with coconut flour. In fact, I just made coconut flour chocolate chip pancakes on Saturday for my niece and I – it’s one of our favs! What a great round-up of coconut flour recipes, there’s so much inspiration!

Jeanette, What a great post! Thank you so much for offering all these wonderful recipes using coconut flour .. one of my favorites! I add it in my recipes wherever I can! I’ll be sure to share this post so others will hear about your Google Plus Hangout on the 27th!
Thanks Paula – hope you can join us and thanks for spreading the word!
I don’t think I”ve ever baked with coconut flour before and now I feel like I’m really missing out! Those pancakes look awesome!
Thanks Joanne – I’m looking forward to learning more from our session w/ Bob’s Red Mill and our panelists.
I have not tried coconut flour but I have seen it used a few times. I have been curious of how it changes the flavor/texture! Your round-up is great. I think I might have to try one of these recipes to get my feet wet.
