When you bake muffins with wheat flour, you may use up to 3 cups of flour for a single recipe. When you make coconut flour muffins, you’ll only use ½ – ¾ cup to make a batch of muffins. That’s because 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 number of eggs. While most gluten-free recipes will use a binder like xanthan gum, that isn’t true for coconut flour. Instead, you rely on eggs to bind the ingredients together.
