More on the Coconut

Here are some coconut flour recipes that I have found that work well from Elana’s Pantry http://www.elanaspantry.com/   and http://realsustenance.com with Brittany Angell.  I love learning and experimenting with different flours and recipes.   Coconut flour is very high in fiber and protein and is beneficial in maintaining blood glucose levels.  When you bake with coconut flour you need to add more eggs and a small amount of sweetener.  Enjoy these following recipes!
