Coconut Flour is a special gluten-free and protein-rich flour that is available in gourmet stores these days. It is rich in fibre, and lends itself to the making of breads and pancakes.
The bread made from coconut flour is kind of dense but very tasty, and definitely far healthier than those made of refined flour or whole wheat flour. This recipe shows you how to make Coconut Flour at home.
It can be made from the coconut pulp that is leftover after extracting coconut milk. So, when you make Coconut Flour at home, you get both the milk and the flour, which is an economical and smart thing to do.
You can use this coconut flour to make recipes like Coconut Flour Bread and Coconut Flour Pancakes .
- Combine the coconut and 2 cups of warm water in a mixer and blend it till smooth.
- Strain it using a damp muslin cloth in a deep bowl and squeeze out all the milk thoroughly with your hands.
- Preserve the coconut milk and store it in the refrigerator to make gravies.

- Cool completely and blend it in a mixer to a coarse mixture.
- Use as required, or store it in an air-tight container till use.
