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!

    • ennis how do you test for Candida overgrowth did I have to see a functional doctor or do medical doctors test. It would seem like a plausible  explanation to my symptoms. 
    • Hello everyone.    Ive been diagnosed with celiac for about 4 years now. It's been a rough road but I feel like I've gotten as good as I can get with eliminating gluten completely from my diet.    I am an undergraduate student with a driven passion to become a nurse (I'm a guy, I know). I love the field and can't wait to help people every day.   As some of you may know, the nursing curriculum is extremely intense. I have an very strict routine and schedule where I can handle the rigor of my classes, work, and fitness (I am really into health and fitness, it's the best release from the stresses induced from school. I get 6 hours of sleep on the dot and manage to work, volunteer, study, and eat decently well. I love my life when it's on this routine and am so happy and social with people around me. I'm making progress, I'm moving forward, making something of my life.    But lately I've been suffering. I've been getting sick a lot more often from what seems to be random uncontrollable cross contamination from various things. When I get sick, my routine gets all messed up, I fall off my schedule, and things start going downhill. I like to call it the "celiac rut" I get stuck in. When I'm sick I can't work out, without working out I get extremely stressed and can't sleep. Without sleep I can't focus on my school and you know, the slippery slope that pretty much leads to lots of depression and anxiety.    This. Absolutely. Sucks. I fall behind in school and have trouble focusing on my priorities because I need more sleep to heal, and I can't go to class or the gym when I'm throwing up or spending hours on the toilet. Plus the mental symptoms turn me into an angry antisocial gluten monster. So that's always fun.   I really don't know how to manage this. I feel like at this rate I won't be able to keep up with my daily life. I physically can not handle the lifestyle I have when I get sick, and it piles up because when I get better I'm like weeks behind in material in my classes.    I am am normally a super happy outgoing guy, I love being the person I truly am. But gluten is singlehandedly tearing my life apart and the depression is starting to take it's toll.    I honestly dont know what to get out of posting this. I just hope that someone has some sort of trick or secret to get through this awful "celiac rut."
    • Hello, I have the same issue with the hair loss a few months after going gluten free, I have been getting the b12 shot and was also told to take Vit D and Calcium, Also told it was because my guts are still not happy after all i put them thru, It's very upsetting losing the amount of hair I have, my right side of my head is about 65% thinner then the left...Was told it see a Diet person right away. 
    • There is sort of a detox/withdrawal thing for the first few weeks for most. Keep a food diary, often after a glutening a new intolerance will creep up for awhile. Sort of your body associating another food with gluten, and or it just being picky while damaged. Write down everything you eat, how you fix it, seasonings etc. Change up the diet, and look for patterns.  My own gut is being picky today and had D after 2 meals so I am rotating up and narrowing down the culprit tomorrow myself....only see 4 common things in my food dairy.
    • Thanks for your reply. I'm currently grain free, although I ended up making kitchary because I needed something of substance in my stomach. Seems to have helped. Some other symptoms coming on strong, so just hoping I have some answers soon, to make sure I'm at least on the right path!
