Cocanut flour

I was going through the cabinets and found lots of cocanut flour.
I'm looking for simple recipes I can use it on.
Also was wondering if I could use cocanut flour in place of almond flour and if yes what is the measuring difference between the two?
Thank you

Coconut flour is a beast in itself. It is not interchangeable with almond flour. It requires lots of eggs to bind together. It can be very dry if you add to much. I always add it last and stop when it comes together. Find a tried and true recipe and try that first.

I just threw out a big plastic cannister of coconut flour last week - it had been opened, I did not have good results with it, and the code date on it was 2012! I figured if it had been sitting in there that long without me finding something to do with it then it was time for it to go.

I hope you find something good to do with yours!

Yes, definitely don't try to swap it out for any almond flour recipes, you'll just end up with an expensive disaster on your hands. The only two recipes I ever had success with coconut flour was adding two tablespoons to cream cheese pancakes and Up Late Anyway's stromboli recipe. It was okay in a low carb bread recipe (you can search here for it, coconut flour yeast bread), but really unpredictable and I never got the same results twice.

Like Charski, I finally gave up on it and plan to throw out the two full containers I still have. It simply isn't worth it to me and I detest it. lol I just consider it money lost and lessons learned, thank goodness it isn't expensive!

Look at All day I dream about food blog. She uses small amounts in many of her cake recipes. I've tried several with great tasty results.

It's good in a mix of flours, which is what I use it for.
