Several of the adults and kids in our family are undertaking an allergy elimination diet to help various health issues from leaky gut to adrenal fatigue syndrome and Hashimoto's thyroiditis, so we're experimenting like crazy with different grain-free flours like cassava, dairy-free chocolates, homemade cashew milk, and recently decided to find new ways to cook with coconut flour.
Health Benefits of Coconut Flour
It's gluten-free/grain-free and has an incredibly high level of fiber and healthy fat that will help you feel full faster (perfect for sweet treats!). It undergoes very little processing and it's SO easy to find certified organic coconut flour too.
One of the unique nutrients we get most excited about is lauric acid which is famous for maintaining a balanced thyroid and healthy skin. And unlike many other conventional gluten-free flours, coconut flour is low in carbohydrates and doesn’t affect blood sugar in a dramatic way and may even help reduce the effects of other foods on your blood sugar levels!
