Baking With Coconut Flour Hangout Video

Last Wednesday Jeanette from Jeanette’s Healthy Living invited me to my first Google + Hangout to talk about what I know best: Coconut! 

Also with us was my good friend Lexie from Lexie’s Kitchen,  Sarah House from Bob’s Red Mill, Carolyn from All Day I Dream About Food, Cara from Cara’s Cravings, and Jane from The Heritage Cook.

I hope you enjoy the video! Links to my books (all using coconut flour) can be found under cookbooks at the top of my blog. And of course there are hundreds of free recipes here on the blog that use all things coconut :-)

♥, Kelly

    Hi Kelly, I loved the video. It was wonderful to see current faces behind some of the other bloggers I visit. I have a question about your new book. In the video you mentioned that you prefer to weigh instead of measure ingredients because the accuracy is better. Will you be doing this in your new book? Thanks for all you do. Really love your recipes!

    Such a great video thank you all!
    I have a question, I am wanting to use more coconut flour however my children do not lik the taste of coconut! How do mask it or is it something you just acquire? Does it make every product your use it in taste like a coconut? My youngest child has to eat grain free and has allergies so I am really wanting to use more coconut flour instead of always just using almond.
    Thank you!

    Hello Kelly,
    Great video! I (surprisingly) just found your website after a year of coconut flour experimenting and blog searches..(plus I was nostalgically pleased because I lived in Boulder for the last 8 years and just moved to rainy Portland!)

    “Crispy (Crunchy) Coconut flour cookies..”

    A couple of months ago, for my daughter’s birthday, I got a little crazy and decided to make a grain free, dairy free icebox cake. I found a gluten free chocolate wafer recipe (see link below) and subbed 100% coconut flour for the other flours in the recipe. It worked extremely well! The wafers (Which I compared directly with the original famous chocolate wafers AND the website’s original gluten free recipe) were crunchy, and better tasting than both of the others.

    They also performed better in absorbing the frostings (both dairy and chocolate cashew cream types). I used my (picky eating) brother and his wife as guinea pigs and they raved about the coconut flour versions as well.

    In the three days following my daughter’s birthday party, we polished off the crunchy cookies, dunked in fresh made almond milk (oreo style..)

    I thought you could maybe share this with the others as a starting point for crispy coconut flour cookie experiments…

    Thanks for your awesome site!
