Going grain free whether following the GAPS Diet, Paleo, gluten-free, cleansing or following your physical needs does not mean going without muffins, breads or delicious baked goods. A fabulous low-carb, high fiber, grain free option is coconut flour. Now just like all other foods, not all coconut flours are the same.
The first time I tasted muffins made with coconut flour, there was a very strong coconut taste or some other flavor which was tolerable, but not thrilling. The next time I tasted coconut flour muffins, I was -blown away by the taste and texture. Thus, I have only ever used this brand of coconut flour. In fact, when one of my clients used this brand with baked goods for her family they said that it “tasted like Starbucks”.
When cooking with coconut flour one cannot use a typical recipe and substitute. There is a very small account of flour used and the binder used is eggs. Therefore, instead of these muffins being a sweet carbohydrate food, they become a high fiber, protein boost.
A great way to start your day or provide a satisfying snack.
