I’ve had coconut flour sitting up in the cabinet for about 6 months now.  I bought it because it’s good for you, it’s gluten-free, high in fiber and protein, and I wanted to bake with it.


I hadn’t done a thing with it, so I looked up “Recipes using coconut flour” and got some pretty good results, but in the end I went with these delicious muffins.  I normally associate lemon with summer time, but since the weather has been ridiculously nice lately, I figured these were appropriate.

The consistency of the muffins was really thick and dense.  I didn’t know what to expect since I had never baked with coconut flour before, but I was pleasantly surprised.  The coconut flavor is pretty predominant in these, but I think that’s a good thing.




Have you baked with coconut flour before?  What did you think of it?
