Dry The Leftover Coconut Pulp
Oven Method: Preheat the oven to 170 degrees Fahrenheit – or the lowest temperature possible. Then, take the pulp and spread it over a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Use a fork to break up any clumps and spread the pulp into a flat layer.
Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake at a very low heat for 45 minutes to an hour. The coconut flour needs to dry out completely before you remove it from the oven. Once dried, bring the organic coconut flour out of the oven and let it cool completely.
Dehydrator Method: I believe this is the best way to dry coconut flour as it doesn’t toast the coconut flour like the oven method can. Spread the coconut pulp over the dehydrator sheets and dehydrate at 98 degrees for 10-12 hours, or until the coconut is completely dried.
Grind Into Flour
Use a coffee grinder, blender or food processor to grind the coconut flour into a fine flour. Store the coconut flour in a sealed container.
