I am thinking about ordering some coconut flour from my co-op. I don't know much about it, though. Does it go rancid quickly like pre-ground grain flours? How's it compare to grain flours in texture, taste, etc? Do you use it to replace grain flours in a 1:1 ratio?

Anyone know anything about this? It seems to me that this would fit right in with WAP and NT ideas, though I can't seem to find mention of the use of coconut flour in my readings.

I have found info about the coconut flour at Dr. Mercola's website. I think Bob's Red Mill also has some info if you do a search. I bought some recently and haven't really used it yet, except a little in some cherry pie filling as a thickener.

You replace it 1:1, but not in large amounts in anything that would require gluten to do right, like bread. I've got a lot of it, and I've been pleased with replacing it 10-33% in non-yeast things. I'm working on an oatmeal raisin cookie recipe using that instead of flour so you don't have to soak it.

Also, you can look online and find a sample of Bruce Fife's recipes from his new book. I have it bookmarked, but I'm not at my dad's computer right now. I'll see if I can find it.
