Baking With Coconut Flour
0

7 posts in this topic

Has anyone baked with only coconut flour. I found a ton of recipes for things like brownies, pancakes and bread using coconut flour as the only flour. The recipes don't have the gums in directions either. I am allergic to corn so I can't have the gums.

It all just seems so easy. Here is one recipe. Could it possibly be this easy?!!

Fudgy Coconut Flour Brownies

1 cup butter or ghee, melted and slightly cooled

1 cup cocoa powder

9 eggs

1 cup honey

3/4 tsp vanilla

3/4 tsp sea salt

3/4 cup coconut flour

Butter a 9

I made banana muffins out of coconut flour a few days ago using a recipe that Skylark posted in the "What's for breakfast?" thread:

http://www.freecoconutrecipes.com/recipe_Coconutty_Cinnamon_Banana_Bread.htm

This was the easiest gluten-free recipe for baked goods I've ever made! It really was that easy. The coconut flour soaks up the moisture from the eggs and everything adheres easily. The texture was really nice. I'd serve them to people who usually eat baked goods made out of wheat flour and I'm sure I'd have no complaints. (I don't say that about every recipe!)

I bake with it a lot and really like it. Nine eggs sounds like a lot for 3/4 cup of flour. I know that coconut flour really sucks up moisture but that just seems like too much liquid (along with all that honey and ghee). However, there is also 1 cup of cocoa.

Brownies are easy with just coconut flour and you do not need any gums as brownies do not need structure or to rise, either. Brownies are an excellent place to start with coconut flour baking (and those who read this who are new to gluten free baking in general).

Yes, it's really that easy. :) The coconut flour does want to lump up and it works best to sift it into wet ingredients a little at a time. I usually add a little baking powder to the recipes, though I would skip it on brownies. I was pleasantly surprised the first time I tried coconut flour muffins and they were good. No more hockey pucks for me! The coconut flour stuff can be a little dense, especially the "bread" but I like it.

I agree with love2travel that the recipe you've found looks like a lot of oil/eggs. Try this one from Tiana. It's similar to yours but notice how much less oil. http://www.tiana-coconut.com/coconut_flour_recipes.htm The recipes there work really well for me.

Brownies

Ingredients

1/3 cup TIANA Organic Virgin Coconut Oil or butter, melted

1/2 cup cocoa powder

6 eggs

1 cup sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 cup sifted TIANA Organic Coconut Flour

1 cup nuts, chopped (optional)

Method

In a saucepan at low heat, blend together butter and cocoa powder. Remove from heat and let cool. In a bowl, mix together eggs, sugar, salt and vanilla. Stir in cocoa mixture. Whisk coconut flour into batter until there are no lumps. Fold in nuts. Pour batter into a greased 11x7x2 or 8x8x2 inch pan. Bake at 175C (350F) for 30-35 minutes.

Thanks. I can't wait to make the banana muffins and the brownies. I just ordered coconut flour, coconut oil and some cocoa butter. I found a recipe to make my own chocolate! Dairy free! Who knew!
