Coconut Flour?
0

6 posts in this topic

I have dry shredded coconut flakes at my house. They are dried out. I was wondering if I ground them up in a food processor...would that make coconut flour?? I want to use it in a pancake recipe as a gluten-free flour.

Also, I have almond meal at the house. Is that the same thing as almond flour?

Btw which pancakes sound better? Almond pancakes (with almond flour and almond milk) or coconut pancakes (with coconut flour and coconut milk)? ...I'm lactose intolerant

I'd always choose coconut over anything else:) Yum!

Not sure about the flour question, hopefully one of the clever cooks on here will be along to tell you the answer!

Almond meal is almond flour.

Yes, you can put the shreds of coconut into a processor, and it will turn into flour. It will work nicely, and although it may not be the same as the store-bought/normal flour....it'll just be more coconutty-tasting. Go ahead, and it'll be perfect.

I think the almond pancakes sound better, but that's me :D

Almond meal=almond flour, but be sure you get a good brand if you don't make it yourself. The almond flour from Honeyville Grains is much finer and better than Bob's Red Mill for most baking. Probably will work okay in pancakes.

Remember that using coconut flour you need more eggs and liquid. Even if it's made from your dried up flakes, it will suck up a lot of wet stuff! It's best combined with other flours.

Coconut pancakes sound really yummy!

I've never had good luck doing a 100% substitution with my homemade almond meal, but that might be b/c it tends to be my leftovers from making almond milk. I usually sub it for part of what the recipe calls for (maybe 25% or so), then use commercial for the rest. Cookies seem to be a little more forgiving of my almond meal than breads and such.

    • I thought I would update you all.  I started to eat gluten shortly after this post.  I was miserable by the time I had my EGD.  The doctor gave a diagnosis after the EGD was completed, duodenitis, gastritis and hiatal hernia.  I had abnormal mucosa of the whole stomach and severe inflammation.  The biopsy results came back today, they stated early stages celiac disease.  I wonder what it would've shown if I wasn't on a gluten free diet for two years?  My doctor said he still wants me to come in for a talk, he doesn't really know if he should call it celiac disease since it's early stages....  WTH!  I've really got to find a doctor that specializes in Celiac Disease...    
    • thank you for the info, its very helpful to hear from someone else who has it and knows a lot about it. When you say I may be eliminating one problem vs 3, what would you think the other problems could be? It's frustrating because I even buy Uldis gluten-free bagels and what not and I still find myself reacting sometimes to that, I don't use butter but just gluten-free peanut butter, but like I said I don't know for sure if its from that or maybe something else. I have read on this site about a couple others that have had issues with uldis breads so could be that. but like you said I guess it can also just take awhile to get better. I read the other day that a lot of throwing up can put stress on your small intestine which can maybe cause your body to react to dairy, do you know anything about that or if that's true?
    • Thanks for the reply!  Yeah, I really should have gotten testing done before the elimination diet.  I had asked my previous doctor, but she didn't want to do it.  I was transitioning to a new insurance and couldn't get a doctor's appointment for awhile, so I thought I would just do the elimination diet.  After all, it might not have been gluten.  (<--that was my thought process...) Hindsight is 20/20.  I felt pretty good during those 3 weeks gluten free, and was not expecting how bad it would be when I added it back in.  Anyway, I found a new doctor and I think she would totally be willing to test me again 9 weeks out. I think she would also be willing to order the endoscopy if I brought her research and really pushed for it. Now that I know how good feeling good feels... I just can't see staying on gluten for another 9 weeks.  I honestly don't know how I would survive.  Even if it's not Celiac, and it's ONLY the wheat allergy... it's making my life absolutely miserable. Thanks again for the reply!  I think I'll go in Friday for the blood test and take it from there.
    • Hi Alok, I suggest not eating any soy.  Soy is one of the top 8 food allergens in the USA.  Soy has other things about it that are not helpful to us.  Plus it is often sprayed with pesticides that are not so great for people.  Maybe you can try some other food for a while?  Also it might help to wash all your vegetables before using them. Just some ideas, I hope they help.
