How to Use

Can be used either on its own or in addition to other flours in recipes such as bakes, breads, pancakes and crumbles or use to thicken sauces and casseroles.
Whisk or sift before using, as you would other flours and we recommend leaving batters and cake mixtures to stand for a few minutes before cooking, adding extra liquid or egg if required.

NOT SO GOOD FOR CRUMBLES!

Hi Marie, thank you for our review. Our coconut flour is high in fibre which means it does absorb more liquid than plain flour. it can be used as a crumble topping but usually requires some modifications if following a recipe that was not created for using coconut flour :)

ISHRAT P

Great as a four alternative or use half flour and half coconut flour as a more dense flour very flavoursome

Hi Ishrat, that is great to hear. Because the coconut flour is high in fibre, with 40g of fibre for every 100g it is absorbent so we recommend making a blend exactly as you have done.

Struggled a bit with crumble recipes do to dry consistency and super absorbent flour. Need to tweak this one a bit .

Hi Ruth, this is because the product is high in fibre and very absorbent, soaking up more liquid! We recommend creating a blend.
