Tried and true coconut flour recipes - Page 2

Emmaegbert, Could your crust recipe be used for say, a pumpkin pie? Would I have to bake the crust first or could I put the pie filling into the raw crust then bake?

well, I haven't used it for pumpkin pie, but I bet it would be good! When I made quiche in it I lightly toasted it first.

The nuts can burn so I wouldn't leave a lot of crust sticking up above the filling if that makes sense (unlike a butter-flour crust with a big fluted edge)

I just made lemon poppy seed muffins from Elanas pantry, with a modification to reduce the amount of sweetener. Very nice! I made them as 6 regular size muffins (her recipe is for mini muffins):
1/4 c coconut flour
1/4 c agave (I used 20 drops stevia, 1 tbl agave and enough buttermilk to make 1/4 c)
1/4 c oil
1/2 tsp baking soda or powder
3 eggs
1 tbl lemon zest
1 tbl poppy seed
(I added 1 tbl chia seeds too)

------------------------
I make these for the boys (I'm not eating flour right now), they love them and it definitely reduced the amount of flour they are eating per muffin. Makes 12 regular size muffins.

1 c whole wheat flour
1/4 c almond meal
1/4 c + 2tbl coconut flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 c sugar
cinnamon

4 eggs
2/3 c buttermilk
5 tbl coconut milk (or more buttermilk)
5 tbl melted coconut oil
2 tsp vanilla
5 drops liquid stevia

3/4 c toasted unsweetened coconut, chopped nuts

Hi- I'm new

I just bought some coconut flour on the weekend and made up teething biscuits for my 9 month old. They turned out pretty well, and the crumbliness of the flour seems to work well as a teething biscuit since it kind of breaks apart easily in his mouth.

I used :

1/3 cup coconut flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup mashed banana
1/4 cup applesauce
1/4 cup ( maybe a bit less??) of melted cocounut oil
3 egg yolks
1 tbsp. maple syrup ( could be omited as the banana makes them sweet)

The resulting dough looked a bit too dry since I've read coconut flour really soaks up liquid , so I added a bit of kefir till I got a consistency that looked ok. Then I rolled them into little balls and squashed them flat onto a cookie sheet (about 1.5 to 2 inches in diameter) then I baked them at 350 for 15 minutes or so . Transfered them to the dehydrator to dry them out and make them really hard for teething!


They worked out pretty well, my husband and 2 year old were even eating them! My 9 month old is still getting used to the hard texture ( only soft cubes up to this point!) but he seems to like them too. kefir is probably unecessary but it gave them a bit of a nice tang


looking forward to trying out some of these recipes!!
