Coconut Flour Recipes

Coconut flour recipes are an excellent choice for people who want to lower the amount of oxalates, gluten, and carbs in their diet.

Coconut flour recipes can include breads, muffins, chapati, and pizza crust recipes.

Baking with coconut flour requires an understanding of the special properties of this low carb flour. 

Baking with this flour is a little trickier than baking with other types of flours.

Coconut flour tends to create a more dense loaf of bread or muffin that will call for added moisture and eggs.


Low Carb Banana Muffin
Coconut Flour Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 5 Large Pastured Eggs
  • 1 tsp. Organic Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Organic Ripe Bananas
  • 1/2 Cup of Organic Coconut Flour
  • 1/4 Cup of Organic Coconut Oil or Pastured Butter (softened)
  • 1/2 to 1 tsp. Pure Baking Soda (I think 1 tsp. of baking soda is too much leavening)

Instructions:

  1. Crack the eggs into a large bowl and add the vanilla extract.
  2. Mash up the 2 bananas and add to the bowl.
  3. Then add in coconut flour and softened coconut oil or butter.
  4. Lastly, add in the baking soda and mix ingredients until a smooth consistency.
  5. Grease a muffin pan and fill almost to the top with muffin batter.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 15 to 18 minutes until lightly browned.
  7. Let them cool and remove from muffin pan.
  8. Recipe should make 9 banana muffins.

Cinnamon is high in oxalates, so I would pass on the cinnamon sugar topping.

Low Oxalate Fruit

Bananas are considered to be a low oxalate fruit by many low oxalate food lists. 

And may contain as few as 2 to 3 mg. of oxalates per serving.

Bananas are a great way to add moisture and do help to create the right texture in baked goods that contain coconut flour.

A few other great low oxalate choices to use in coconut flour breads or muffins would be applesauce, peaches, and mango.

Low in oxalate greens to replace spinach as a topping could be fresh basil leaves or arugula.
