Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Nutritionist and naturopathic physician Fife (director, Coconut Research Ctr.; The Coconut Oil Miracle) emphasizes the health benefits of coconut flour, a naturally low-carb and gluten-free substance. He details the various properties of coconut flour, provides general information on nutrition and maintaining a healthy diet, and offers tips on the use of coconut flour and an appendix of resources. The crux of the book is the compilation of numerous recipes using coconut flour for the preparation of such items as baked goods, breads, and main dishes. These recipes, in addition to lacking gluten, are also free of wheat, soy, trans fats, artificial sweeteners, and yeast. Of particular interest to those with gluten allergies or related dietary restrictions, this book may also appeal to nutrition and health food enthusiasts.

    Wow!

    My family is not gluten free, but this is a wonderful way to get a healthy flour with lots of FIBER! Some recipes are a hit, and some are not, but it's a wonderful way to learn about how to use the flour! Great alternative to other flours!

    Great for gluten-free, pretty good for low-carb

    This book opened up a whole world of low-carb baking that I never knew existed! If you are avoiding gluten, this is the baking book for you. The author offers many reduced-sugar versions of recipes (usually cutting sugar in half and replacing with stevia). If you are low-carb, you will have to modify a lot of the recipes and replace the sugar with another sweetener. But there are quite a few low-carb recipes that can be used without modification (e.g., crepes, quick bread, etc.). A great resource.

    Cook with Coconut Flour

    I have to admit I haven't used it yet. I AM glad to have it, however, as I tried to make banana bread with coconut flour, and it turned into a giant lump of dough. Obviously the fiber in the coconut flour absorbs much mopre fluid. So I immediately got on B&N to look for a cookbook. Yay. You will be the first to know when I make a successful banana bread!

    Great Recipes for Gluten Free Diets

    This is a fun book and the recipes are easy and delicious. Once I got the hang of how coconut flour absorbs the liquid, I have been having fun with all the muffin recipes.....they taste good and are good for you!
