Coconut Flour Biscuit Recipese?
0

7 posts in this topic

A Britain-educated close friend, lover of teas and high tea, is coming for a visit, and I'd like to offer something to go with my tea or hot chocolate.

 

Has anyone here tested any good recipes for biscuits - scones, but also digestive-type cookies! - using coconut flour?

 

I cannot eat almonds or tapioca, so those starches are out - I suppose I could use arrowroot if I manage to get my hands on some. Ideally, something quite fast to make would be GREAT. I don't have lots of time in my hands at the moment.

I haven't tried these coconut flour ones, but her almond flour ones are very good. You might also google coconut cookies. I have seen recipes for cookies made with coconut and no flour. You may have to think a little differently about what to serve.

Thank you! I made her scones w/o chocolate chips, and served them with laban and blueberry preserve, and Italian hot chocolate (read: bitter-sweet hot pudding). They were so good that my non-gluten-free friend asked for some to bring home. Score!!!

So happy that went well for you and your friend! I won't ask you to translate "laban" and "bitter-sweet hot pudding" (hot chocolate?), but please share the scones recipe if you have time. Would love to make some of those myself :)

LOL - laban is a Lebanese cream-cheese type of spread, but made with strained yogurt. Basically cultured cream-cheese, but it sort of makes me think of clotted cream, too. Very thick and creamier than cream cheese, with a refreshing acidity. Also with a nice fat percentage which balances out the acidity. I thin butter is gross, so this is what I give my guests instead :)

 

Italians make hot chocolate in a different way - actually, I am making a small cup now! B)  It has a higher cocoa percentage, less sugar, and a little bit of starch (I cannot tolerate cornstarch, so I did that with potato starch, which is a bit too grainy; I'm trying arrowroot tonight) as a thickener - unless you go all the way and make a "chocolate melt," ie. dark chocolate melt in a double boiler with milk. But that is very rich. So basically it's hot chocolate that you eat with a spoon; not something you can sip. I add some vanilla and cayenne pepper, and whipped cream. Usually with milk, but I wanted to try a coconut milk version because I love the coconut-cocoa pairing. Hot chocolate made this way is probably the healthiest way of indulging in chocolate, and since I've had problems with chocolate bars, this seems to work.

 

I will make the scones again and note down the exact ingredients for you :) For now I know I used 6 smallish eggs for 6 scones. But I never measure anything when baking. I iz daredevil. :ph34r:

    • Below is copied & pasted from this thread:   My celiac doctor is Dr. Syed Jafri, in Webster, TX (just south of Houston -- basically the Clear Lake City area), saved my LIFE.  I would recommend him to the whole, entire world.  I was desperately ill, and am still struggling, and he's a wonderful, sweet man who listens and is very proactive in helping you solve whatever problems you're having.  I wish all doctors were like him.  I have to fight and struggle with too many doctors to just listen to me and what I live with, day in and day out.  He's not like that.  Good luck to you.     There are recommendations on this thread too:  
    • I never worried about cross contamination because i was originally told i was just intolerant. after going gluten free i felt so much better up until this last march. dairy and fructose have been giving me problems but both lactose and fructose test came back negative.  this is what my gi doctor emailed me today 
    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
