When a friend gave me a bag of coconut flour for baking, I didn’t know what I was getting into. Since I love using coconut oil and it’s easy to substitute in recipes, I couldn’t wait to give coconut flour a try. Coconut flour is gluten-free, rich in fiber, contains healthy fats and is low in carbohydrates. Sounds great, doesn’t it?
Yes, coconut flour has many benefits, but after doing some research, I realized that baking with coconut flour isn’t a simple task. There are no easy substitutions for baking with coconut flour, so beware when using your existing recipes. In fact, it’s best to use recipes that are made specifically for using coconut flour. Why? Coconut flour is extremely absorbent, so recipes using it require a lot more liquid than traditional recipes. When substituting, it is recommended to not substitute more than 1/3 of the flour in a recipe, and add an extra amount of liquid to the recipe.
Lucky for you, I have a recipe for you that requires no substitutions. That’s right! Follow this recipe for Coconut Flour Fudge Brownies and you’ll have your chocolate cravings cinched in a heartbeat. No math required! All you need for this recipe is:
- Coconut Flour
- Cocoa Powder
- Coconut Oil
These brownies are still packed with chocolate flavor, but are a healthier alternative than your traditional brownies. With honey as a sweetener and all natural ingredients, you can feel good about satisfying your sweet tooth.
When making these brownies, your batter will appear thicker than normal, but that’s OK. You’ll have thick, fudgy brownies loaded with all the benefits of coconut flour and coconut oil in less than an hour.
