Giveaway: Coconut Flour from Tropical Traditions

by lydia on September 16, 2013

**THE WINNER OF THE GIVEAWAY……………….KERRY LEENHOUTS. CONGRATULATIONS!!!! **

Coconut flour is pretty much the only flour I bake with anymore. Since going gluten free a few years back and adopting a low carb way of eating, I have found that coconut flour simply works the best for my overall health and dietary choices. Coconut flour is high in fiber and low in starch and makes a hearty baked good due to all the eggs usually used in recipes. It has a long shelf life and stores well. Another nice factor about coconut flour is that a little goes a long way.

Tropical Traditions organic coconut flour is fiber from the coconut meat after most of the oil has been extracted to make Virgin Coconut Oil. It is certified organic, unsweetened, and has not been treated with sulfites. Tropical Traditions organic coconut flour is high in dietary fiber and protein, and is gluten-free. It has more fiber than gluten-based grains.  Since organic coconut flour contains natural sugar from the coconut meat, baked goods need less sugar added. The organic coconut flour has a mildly sweet coconut taste!

If you are interested in some recipes using coconut flour, you can check out my Recipes page, I have several recipes using coconut flour. Such as; my Coconut Flour Brownies, Banana Caramel Sticky Buns, Coconut Flour Pancakes, Pumpkin Muffins, Zucchini Bread, Pumpkin Chocolate Swirl Brownies, Strawberry Shortcakes, Wholesome Carrot Cake and more. So, be sure to check those out!

Also, excellent, kitchen-tested recipes can be found on the Tropical Traditions blog:  http://www.freecoconutrecipes.com!  You can also search by ingredient name or by keyword.

Tropical Traditions also carries other varieties of affordable high quality coconut oil. Visit their website to check on current sales, to learn about the many uses of coconut oil, and to read about all the advantages of buying coconut oil online. Since the FDA does not want us to discuss the health benefits of coconut oil on a page where it is being sold or given away, here is the best website to read about the health benefits of coconut oil.

How will I use my coconut oil? I will make Paleo coconut bread with the coconut flour that I win :O) I miss bread and gluten free flours can be expensive and have added ingredients you don’t want if you don’t make them yourself. Lettuce wrapped sandwiches are great but in the winter there is nothing like a nice hot sandwich :O) :O) :O)

I love using coconut flour for baked goods, or mixed with nutritional yeast and coconut shreds as ‘breading’ on chicken tenders. coconut flour is also my go-to flour.

We are slowly starting to stock our pantry with all the real food essentials after experimenting and trying everything we can over the last year. Somehow we haven’t tried coconut flour yet! I just came upon a bunch of coconut flour desert recipes too so I’d love to try those!

I have been wanting to try coconut flour for so long, but being a poor college student, I have yet to buy it. Hopefully I can try it and become a convert soon! I have been dying to try so many recipes that call for it!
