I ordered both coconut flour and coconut fiber from Dr. Fife's recommended webpage. NOw I'm wondering if there's any difference between the fiber and the flour????

What a great tip about putting the flour in your cocoa. Does it totally dissolve?

The flour is on backorder until mid October!...but hopefully I'll get my coconut fiber sooner!

It doesn't dissolve like white flour it makes my hot cocoa real thick. I have to stir it before I drink it as it kinda sinks to the bottom. Some may not care for the thickness but it doesn't bother me.

I am wondering how much fat this flour has in it? I am on maintenance now and try to keep my fats down now.I like the idea of high fiber though.

ok, I am confused, is that 217 calories for one serving?? thats alot of caloreies, I was on one web site where it said one serving was 2 tblsps, and alot of the recipes called for only a small amount of flour so I was thinking it would not be too bad. Maybe I am not calculating it right.

Has anyone tried to make the flour themselves with unsweeteneed coconut?? I have an amish store near me that sells bulk coconut for really cheap, ( it is called unsweetened macaroon coconut and I get it for 1.25 a pound/!!)they have regular too. I was wondering if we could run it thru a food processor and make flour.

well I just tried some in my magic bullet( grinding up coconut to make flour) and I think I ddid it too long as it got mushy,, it started to get finer and then it started to stick together. maybe the bullet was too much,, how fine is the coconut flour that you get ? Does anyone have recipe that I can try using the coconut that I grinded up in my magic bullet? I hate for it to go to waste, I noticed that most recipes dont take much of the flour so I would like to try it on something, I see the muffin recipe on a website, but any other idea??

Okay. i called all health tood stores and bulk barns in my area The closest I got to flour was fine ground coconut. would this be the same thing??? The lady said her ground almond was also called almond flour so she figured fine cocnut would be coconut flour. What is the cosnsistency of your flour ?

Thanks muchly

I don't think anyone has messed around with CFlour yet to get any good recipes. Dr. Fife's book is the ony one on the market that uses only CFlour, the others combine flours with the CFLour. I would give on of those recipes a try to see if you even like baking with it. If you do then I recommend buying the cook book. It explains how to bake with CFlour, it's very different than regular flours and the recipes are very easy.
As far as the calorie count everyone who sells CFlour/Fiber will probly have a different count. I don't worry about the cals. because it's all pretty much fiber and goes through you.

PJMS, my CFlour is a fine powder, finer than the almond flour. I'm sure theirs would be the same. Remember to store your cflour in the freezer it will last for a year then.

Thanks, parrotchic, for that tip! I didn't know that. Do you know if that's the same with almond flour and flaxseed?

parrot, I don't mind thick hot cocoa! Especially if it fills me up for a long time!

Someone questioned about the fat content of coconut...I could be wrong, but I'm assuming it's as high fat as regular coconut. This doesn't bother me at all. I will NEVER do low fat again, even when I reach maintenance. Fat, fiber, protein...these are the things that keep me full and on track. I was ALWAYS starving doing the lowfat thing!

kaygirl, I keep all those things in my freezer and I've had no problem with them going bad. They get rancid real quick if left out on the counter.
I wish everyone the best when you get your CFlour, hope you like it as much as I do. Cooking with it is just so much easier than haveing to us all those other ingrds. to get a good product.

Ok, I made the Choc Cupcakes on pg. 103 this afternoon and they are really good. Mine came out a little dry I cooked them to long and noticed my oven temp. was higher than it should have been. I also made the Atkins choc. frosting recipe to put on top and boy were these good. I got 6 cupcakes so I won't be over eating them. That's one thing I like with about this cook book is the amounts you make are not large so I don't over do it.

parrotchic what sweeteners did you use in your cupcakes? I have never used stevia which is what he suggests using. I normally use Erythritol, splenda and fiberfit or sf syrup.

I really like this book. I bought coconut flour several months ago but didnt have any recipes to refer to. This is going to be so helpful. The savory dishes even sound good.

The sweetners that I had on hand right now was Xylitol, Splenda and DiabetiSweet.(Spelling) I mixed these up and store them in a large container so I don't have to mix with each recipe, I use a 1/2 cup each until my container is full then I shake it all up to get it mixed well. These recipes are so easy and take no time to mix and cook. Now get busy girl.

Brenajm, Dr. Fife did not give us a break down after the recipes. I wish he would have that's maybe something we should e-mail him about. That would be very helpful because I'm terrible about figureing out those numbers.

So when he calls for a 1/2 cup of sugar, you use 1/2 cup of your mixture? I am going to get busy this weekend, for sure

Finally!!

I felt like a woman posessed yesterday trying to find this stuff!! Paid off today this little shop called me back and said that his supplier had coconut powder was that what i wanted. I said yes!! Its a little Afro-Carribean store and he sounded so nice and friendly.he said : " for you my lady anything" nice sales pitch!! So it seems my search is over........ now to order the book....Do they have a kinda shortbread recipe in there?? Chapters here doesnt have it yet so I will have to online order it, I think i will print out the freebies and start with them first and see if they turn out and the fam likes them..ty for letting me ramble

You are lucky you found a store that would order the coconut flour for you. I have tried the health food store here and they wont even talk about it. I just ordered more coconut flour and coconut oil but the flour is out of stock and wont be shipped until mid October. Thats ok though I still have some and we are almost to mid October now
