All purpose flour cannot be used instead of coconut flour when a recipe calls for coconut flour as the recipe won't turn out properly.

You can use Almond flour instead of coconut flour.

Almond flour is one of the best substitutions for coconut flour.

Made up of ground-blanched almonds that have been skinned and milled down to flour.

Almond flour is high in protein, Vitamin E rich, and most often gluten-free.

Coconut flour is good for you because it's rich in vitamins and high in fiber and protein.

Coconut flour is a fine, soft powder made by grinding dried coconut meat into flour.

It can be used in a variety of recipes as a substitute for wheat flour, but only up to around 20 percent or so.

In other words, you can't make a baked good using 100 percent coconut flour.

Coconut flour is a gluten-free flour made solely from coconuts.

It's high in fiber and is a good source of protein.

Adding it to your diet may promote stable blood sugar, good digestion, and heart health.

It may also support a healthy body weight when consumed as part of a nutritious, balanced diet.

The coconut flour is made from coconuts which are sent through a machine to crush it up and then shred and pulverize the coconut into coconut flour.

Coconut flour is a processed food but less processed than some other foods that have additional non natural ingredients.

Coconut flour is good for up to 18 months before it goes bad.

Since coconut flour is rich in oils and other nutrients it can go bad sooner than traditional flour so unlike regular flour that can last for more than a few years the coconut flour cannot.

So you need to use the coconut flour up within 18 months before it goes bad.

After 18 months the coconut flour will go rancid and should be thrown out.

Coconut flour does have a taste to it even when you bake with it.

The coconut flour has a coconut flavor taste to it so if you bake something with the coconut flour then the baked goods will have a coconut taste.

If you do not like the taste of coconut then you won't likely like the taste of anything baked using coconut flour.

Coconut flour is a good flour to bake with but if you don't want the coconut taste in the baked goods then using coconut flour would not be a good idea.

You're better off using regular flour to bake something when you don't want it tasting like coconut.

Coconut flour does make good baked goods though but it's up to the person as to whether they like the taste or not.

Some people like the coconut flour taste and some people do not.
