Coconut Flour?

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.

    • Thanks everyone. I appreciate the answers. I'm waiting to hear back from her dr and then we will go from there. If the dr doesn't think the results show anything then I will get a second opinion thanks to everything that has been shared on here. I will make sure and not change her diet for now.  I am planning on getting tested myself, I have had suspicions since last summer that I could have it. I have a form of autoimmune arthritis, just unclear exactly what it is at this time. I  going to ask to be tested for celiac at my next appt though.
    • I was diagnosed in 2002 and I think I have had maybe 2 actual colds since then. I figured the same as you that with my immune system not having to try and 'save' me from gluten that it now is able to fight off the occasional virus.  The only thing it hasn't been able to fight off is shingles. Thankfully those are clearing and I blame myself for that with lack of sleep and a very poor diet for a bit. Lesson learned, one does not live off crackers and cheese alone.
    • Welcome to the board. I agree with the previous posters that you are very likely looking at celiac. Please do keep her on gluten until all celiac related testing is finsihed. After that do give the diet a good strict try even if the biopsies are negative. Also keep in mind that celiac is genetic so it would be a good idea to screen others in the family even if they don't seem to have symptoms.
    • @jddh So...did the restricted diet you were going to implement work (FODMAP or Whole Foods)?  I recall that you were mis-diagnosed at one point with refractory celiac disease, but it was later determined that you were getting trace amounts of gluten in your diet.  If you are not catching colds, I assume that you have healed from the damages of celiac disease?  I hope so!!! 😊
    • Peter is correct.  You do have a positive so that warrants further investigation.  Here is a link supporting our comments: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/are-raised-dgp-igg-levels-an-early-sign-of-celiac-disease/ http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/it-mmfiles/Celiac_Disease_Diagnostic_Testing_Algorithm.pdf Does she have celiac disease?  You will never know for sure without an endoscopy.  Even then, there is a chance the biopsies are negative, but keep in mind that she might just be starting to develop celiac disease or that the damage was not captured (the small intestine is the size of a tennis court if spread out).   Personally, I tested negative on all but the DGP IgA, yet I had moderate to severe intestinal damage.  The celiac blood tests are good, but they do not catch all celiacs,  some celiacs can even test negative to ALL the blood tests. Consider yourself fortunate that your doctor ordered several of the tests and not just the screening TTG IgA (very good, keeps cost down, but does not catch all).    The DGP is the preferred test in small children.  I do not know why it caught me because I am old,  but it did!   Confusing, isn't it?  I wish there was an easier way to diagnose, but  we have to work with what we have available to us.
