Coconut Flour Recipe Guide – 100+ Free Coconut Flour Recipes

Coconut flour is a high fiber flour often used by those on gluten free or grain free diets.

If you’ve ever baked with coconut flour you’ll know that it can be quite tricky to use. Why? Because coconut flour is a very unique gluten-free flour. For example, when I bake muffins with wheat flour I use up to 3 cups of flour, but when I bake coconut flour muffins I only use 1/2 – 3/4 cup of flour.

Coconut flour absorbs a lot of liquid, which is why most recipes call for a very small amount of flour. You will notice that most coconut flour recipes often call for a large amount of eggs. The reason so many eggs are needed is because coconut flour recipes don’t call for xanthan gum like other gluten free recipes do. Instead you rely on eggs to bind the ingredients together.

Converting recipes to use coconut flour can be difficult and expensive if it doesn’t turn out how you hoped. Don’t let that discourage you, keep at it and you’ll succeed!

I’ve collected over 100 recipes to help you create amazing coconut flour dishes. These recipes are all kitchen tested, so you know that you won’t have to waste time or money on ingredients.

    I noticing a lot of baking recipes, I am seeing Baking powder, in the recipes and see every baking powder i have looked at has Aluminum in it. Is there a brand of Baking powder that does Not Contain Aluminum?

  • Rachelle April 19, 2015, 7:37 pm

    Thank you for your lovely website! I seem to break out every time I have wheat flour, but I still love to bake and I have a sweet tooth. I recently started using chickpea (besan) flour but I want to try other alternatives as well and now I have your beautiful site as a reference 🙂 I’ll definitely be sharing this 🙂

  • Charissa April 7, 2015, 9:23 pm

    Our son was recently diagnosed with Crohn’s and is now completely gluten free as well as dairy free but for some cheese here and there. I found ONE bag (literally the only bag there) at Sam’s yesterday and so I am excited to get going on some recipes for him. Good to know that the ratio is so different for coconut flour as I thought I’d be going broke trying to bake with it as small as the bag is. Seems it might go further than I thought. Thanks for this compilation! Can’t wait to get started!!!

    I was looking for coconut recipes as 1)I like coconut and two I bought so CF at a local store.

    I understand how some people are allergic to gluten (we had a friend, who with her husband owned and cooked in their Italian restaurant, both regular and gluten free foods.

    We had a long chat one day and I understood why gluten allergies are realand horrible nasty to a very small % of people.

    Afterwards she made me understand
    1) how bad it is for those who have it, and

    2) the % of people who can’t eat gluten is so small that it has taken years to get the rest of us to understand.

    3) it is important to have GF offerings for those that need it.

    But There is no INHERENT BENEFIT for the rest of us to only eat grain free, it is completely off the scale stupid to keep hammering that into peoples minds.

    Here is an example.

    We have a friend we shall call Fred.

    Fred listened to his friends all very chic and although they guided him to a “better place” nutritionally (in their heads, not this earth), he gave up gluten, all dairy except yogurt and about 90% of what is healthy.

    He did this for 2 years, he got to the point where he looked like a Jew released from Auschwitz , He was a WRAITH, barely functioning.

    Someone elese we know got him to go to a real doctor, (he had been seeing healthfood quack doctors),

    After a good exam, the doctor said “stop this stupidness and lose the idiot friends, if you continue with your “more traditional health regime”, a few things will happen 1) your teeth will fall out 2) you will lose bone mass and even more muscle, , then you will have organ death and a slow painful death. He told him he had 1-2 months to live, I KID YOU NOT. He noticed his body double appearance to a Holocaust survivor and told him that to his face.

    Another reason to like this site. SO I can cook for the few people I know who are allergic, legitimately allergic, not the malais de la month club.

    I have a Cousin who was allergic to so many things, when I knew he was coming to diner, I asked about ingredients. It became evident in 5-6 no no can’t eat that to ask…WHAT CAN HE EAT.

    I made a wonderful very ethnic Italian meal, and even made a dessert a corn cake, (delish , coconut would have been a great adjunct), filled with a cooked apple filling. His wife is not Italian so the Italian food was off the charts for him, and the dessert was something he never expected. (no one had ever bothered to make a GLUTEN FREE cake for him)

    I cook to any need if I can. I avoid the super picky eater and Vegans, although I make a few dishes that are vegan if you want, as I add the Peccorino Romano on the plate. I will also not cook for anyone that can go into anaphylaxis and die at my diner table!

    # weeks later he was eating steak and mash and bread like a starving man, (which he was).

    He was not gluten intolerant or allergic. I am not as well. But I do want good things to do with this new, (to me), ingredient.

  • Julia @ Real Mommy February 2, 2015, 7:19 am

    OMG I am in heaven right now!
    I am going to be super busy working my way through this fabulous roundup! I just made the donut holes, and suspect I will be making more within the next few HOURS if my hubby has his way! LOL:)
    Coconut flour can be so tricky to work with, so it’s great to have a one stop resource for the “tried and true” recipes that wont fail;)
    Thanks, bookmarking this page!

    How do you use coconut flour to make homemade noodles????

  • Cindy Storch November 17, 2014, 3:11 am

    Hi there. Just tried making the pumpkin bread last night. Followed recipe except substituted corn starch for arrowroot powder. Had to spit out my taste test bite! What did I do wrong? Could you check the list of ingredients and see if an error was made? How could 3/4 cup pumpkin flavor a whole loaf? The color was bad, the taste was horrific, the texture is a joke. I love pumpkin and would really like to make this and have it turn out. I’m sure I must have made some kind of mistake…anyone have experience with this recipe that could give some tips? Thank you!

  • Anthony November 1, 2014, 3:49 am

    I love your website because I was just recently diagnosed with Diabetes 2 and I can now eat desserts that are low carb and healthy because of your website here. I made my first, the raspberry coconut squares, very good! Keep up the good work…

  • Marlene October 18, 2014, 7:13 am

    I bougt a bag of coconut flour by mistake so am now looking on your site to learn more about using it. Thanks for this website.

  • Debbie September 18, 2014, 12:31 pm

    Where can I get coconut flour?

  • Michelle September 18, 2014, 7:53 am

    I’m new to using coconut flour & so far loving the results (mostly). I am trying to stay as GF and low carb as possible. I’m wondering if you can use coconut flour in “raw” recipes?

    I recently saw these things on Amazon called GemWraps which are basically veggie purees made into sandwich wraps. They are uber expensive. I’m wondering if they could be recreated at home using fresh veggie purees with either pureed chia seeds and/or coconut flour. But they would be dehydrated, not baked or fried.

    Thoughts abut the “raw” coconut flour?

  • Tammy H September 8, 2014, 1:32 pm

    I just started cooking with coconut flour and your recipes sound wonderful. I made a basic coconut flour bread, which was okay, but a bit dry unless these is plenty of spread on it. The pancakes from the recipe book I made, were better and my husband even through they were okay. From him, that’s a rave review – he’s a very picky eater and usually doesn’t like new things. I’m anxious to try a number of your recipes but was wondering if you’ve ever made the no-bake chocolate refrigerator cookies with cocnut. I’ve been craving the tradition recipe with peanut butter and Quacker oats but am staying away from grains. Have you tried that recipe replacing the oats with shredded unsweetened coconut? I didn’t see it above and was hoping someone else had success with this before trying it myself. I’m a strict recipe follower or what I try usually flops.

  • Tracy August 28, 2014, 5:28 am

    I was so excited to find this blog last night and I wanted to try a few recipes you listed so I started with the pumpkin muffins which smelled heavenly while baking and the texture was fluffy and light and perfect. However, the taste was so disgusting nobody in my house would eat them. They were kind of bitter tasting with no sweet flavor at all. So I decided to try a more savory recipe and followed the garlic cheddar biscuit recipe exactly but adding a more garlic because I love it so much. Again the texture seemed great and fluffy! But the taste was awful. I could not taste the garlic or the butter at all. More like a mound of straight coconut dough. I’m not sure coconut flour is the right choice for savory treats. I may try a cookie or the banana bread but thinking a better sugar substitute will be needed.

  • Kathy Simkins August 13, 2014, 10:19 pm

    Nutiva brand Coconut flour is available at my nearest Costo store for $6.99 for a 4 pound bag!

  • Kathy Simkins August 13, 2014, 10:17 pm

    Nutiva brand Coconut Flour at my local COSTCO was 4 lbs for $6.99! I was thrilled to find anything gluten free at that price. Thanks for sharing all of your knowledge with the world!

  • S. Anderson July 28, 2014, 3:51 pm

    I’ve been trying to find ways to use coconut flour and oil in my cooking and can’t wait to try some of these recipes. I love the smell and taste of coconut, and love that it’s better for you than other products.

  • Helen February 11, 2014, 11:21 pm

    Thankyou so much for all your recipes, I have struggled with coconut flour, but don’t wish to use just almond flour, or as we call it in the UK ground almonds ! It’s enough fun working out your cups and tablespoon measurements without failing because of coconut. Love your site, blog etc. wishing you health and happiness

  • January 15, 2014, 10:42 am

    Best post idea ever! Love it, and thanks for including my recipes!

  • Art January 13, 2014, 7:25 pm

    These all look good. I was wondering if anyone has tried soaked chia or flax as an egg replacement in any of these?

  • Grassfed Mama January 13, 2014, 1:11 pm

    Love this collection! I love baking with coconut flour! I just made my King Cake in a Mug with coconut flour… Yum! Can’t wait to try some of these.
