Favorite Coconut Flour Recipes?
0

4 posts in this topic

Hi everyone!

 

I have a bunch of coconut flour that expires in June 2014. Two questions:

 

1. I've been storing it in a sealed container in my fridge. Will it stay good longer than the expiration date?

 

2. What are your favorite coconut flour recipes? I have an amazing honey-short cake recipe, but I can't eat that nonstop until June  :P

 

Thanks!

We really like the coconut flour cupcake recipes from elanaspantry.

I've like all her coconut flour recipes that I've tried so far.

 

Another good site for coconut flour recipes is Tropical Traditions. I used to make a Molasses cookie recipe that was on their site. It had coconut and almond flour I think.

 

When I just need to make something really quick for the kids I'll often mix up this pancake recipe (I don't know where I got it):

 

2 Tbsp. Coconut Flour

2 Tbsp. Milk or other liquid

2 Tbsp. melted butter or other oil (can also use puree of some type)

2 eggs

1/4 tsp baking powder (or soda if preferred - omit soda if omitting sugar/honey) - this is optional, but will make them rise a little more

Pinch of salt

1 tsp. sugar or honey (optional)

 

Wisk dry ingredients together then stir in butter/oil. Slowly stir in liquid, then wisk in eggs one at a time. Cook on a greased  med - med/high griddle. This doesn't make very many and they turn out best if you make them pretty small.

 

Post back if you find any other good recipes! :)

I keep mine in the freezer and love to use it in brownies, chocolate and butterscotch.

    • Hi DKH0614, I use aspirin, Pepto Bismol, and peppermint tea or Altoids peppermints.  Pepto Bismol has a soothing effect on the gut.  Pepto Bismol also has aspirin in it.  Peppermint is helpful for relaxing smooth muscle tissue and getting gas out of the stomach. As per KarenG, you may be reacting to dairy.  Dairy has a sugar called lactose in it that some people with celiac have a hard time digesting.  You could try avoiding dairy for a few weeks to see if that helps.  Or try taking lactaid type pills when you eat dairy. It doesn't take very much gluten to cause an immune system reaction.  So it is important to avoid even traces of gluten if possible.  The stuff is hard to avoid sometimes if people around you don't understand how much a small amount of it can affect your body. Let us know if we can help with any  more questions, or if you have concerns we haven't addressed. And welcome to the forum! Also, if you subscribe to the thread (notify me of replies) you'll get an email when people respond to your thread.    
    • After a year and half, if you are eating gluten-free, you shouldn't be having pain from Celiac.  Perhaps you need to find out what is really causing your issues?  Dairy/ lactose is an obvious first place to look.
    • Hi! I am 15 and have been diagnosed with celiac disease for about a year and a half now and I am woundering what do some of y'all use to relive some of the abdominal pains that come along with celiac/gluten allergies?  ( Ibuprofen,  Tylenol, etc.) 
    • Hi Laurabella, Yes, you could have celiac disease!  It is important to keep eating gluten until all testing is completed, including an endoscopy with biopsy samples if the doctor recommends it.  The doctors usually do want the endoscopy.  The biopsy samples of the small intestine lining (4 to 6 samples) are checked for microscopic damage that indicates celiac disease.  Gall bladder problems can happen with celiac disease.  Your pain could also be from intestinal damage in any part of the small intestine. Some things you could try while you are waiting for your tests to be completed are stopping all dairy, and taking peppermint tea for gas in the stomach.  Celiac disease damage makes it hard to digest dairy sugar (lactose) and that can cause bloating and pain.  Constipation and diahrea are also possible fun symptoms. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Beachgrl, We have had members with microscopic colitis before, usually in addition to celiac disease.  Have you been tested for celiac disease?  The reason I ask is, it is much better to be tested for celiac before starting the gluten-free diet.  The primary tests for celiac are to detect antibodies to gliaden in the bloodstream.  Those antibodies start to decline when a person stops eating gluten, so the tests become useless. There is no reason a person can't have more than one digestive system disease.  So it is smart to be tested for celiac disease if you can get the testing arranged.  Any change in symptoms after stopping gluten is an indicator that gluten is causing a reaction of some kind.  It could be celiac, or it could be non-celiac gluten intolerance, (NCGI).  There aren't any reliable tests for NCGI yet.
