Cuckoo for Coconut Flour (Giveaway!)

IMG_3030

I am a coconut flour convert!

I still haven’t figured out how it works best in certain recipes, but I’m having so much fun trying.

Those brownies I made with this coconut flour? Incredible. I also have plans to try some coconut flour pancakes after my friend Christie told me it was her favorite way to use it.

And thanks to Tropical Traditions, one of you will get to try their Coconut Flour out, too!

Don’t know much about Coconut Flour? I didn’t either before I tried it, but it has some pretty amazing stats.

It is certified organic, unsweetened, and has not been treated with sulfites. Tropical Traditions organic coconut flour is high in dietary fiber and protein, and is gluten-free. It has more fiber than gluten-based grains. Tropical Traditions organic coconut flour can be added to standard wheat-based recipes to add extra fiber, by substituting 10-30% of the grain-based flour with our coconut flour.

Some recipes, such as muffins and quick breads, can be accomplished with 100% Tropical Traditions organic coconut flour and therefore be 100% gluten-free! Since organic coconut flour contains natural sugar from the coconut meat, baked goods need less sugar added. The organic coconut flour has a mildly sweet coconut taste.

Tropical Traditions organic coconut flour also contains over 19% non-gluten protein! Therefore, it makes an excellent addition to shakes and smoothies where fiber and protein are needed. Or simply dissolve a spoonful in water as a high-fiber drink with a coconut flavor! This organic coconut flour is very versatile and very tasty. Sprinkle it over your favorite dishes to add a wonderful coconut flavor, use it as a thickener in soups and sauces – the possibilities are endless!

And – even better – Tropical Traditions has some recipes on their website if you need a place to start.
