So I have this comparative study for a school project and it requires the nutritional facts of both coconut and wheat flour. My dilemma is where can I source a gram per gram comparison of these two flours. Everywhere I look, one is always heavier... (more)
After hearing about bars made from cricket flour like the Exo or Chapul bars I have really gotten excited about edible insects as a sustainable source of protein and have been researching them a lot (especially since it seems to have been a large... (more)
Has anyone tried using avocado as a substitute for nut butters in baking with any success? We have salicylate allergies which includes all nuts and sunflower seeds . I am also after a good subby for almond flour also please .
My husband and I have started to "go paleo" but we keep coming up against the same problem. Almost all recipes use almond flour, and we recently discovered my husband is allergic to almond flour (along with coconut, eggs, and honey!) Are there... (more)
I have a recipe that I would like to change to a Paleo Recipe. Can you tell me the Almond and Coconut Flour equivalents to substitute in place of regular Flour. Thank you. Judy R.
Has anyone tried this before or have any good recipes for it? I have such a negative stigma with non traditional food wannabee recipes. I used to be a raw food vegan and my sister taught me how to make vegan pizza using flax seeds as the crust... (more)
Yup. I use potato starch or tapioca starch to make rolls when I have company over. Always a big hit. Here's my favorite recipe. Possibly my favorite faileo thing I make. And yes, I have used this with burgers! But they are starchy like rolls, not... (more)
It depends on what specific issues you are trying to deal with using paleo. I am diabetic, so I stick to mainly meats and veggies. From just a standard paleo standpoint, coconut is loved by many. Coconut or almond flower for baking, coconut oil... (more)
Since I discovered by accident that finely chopped cauliflower in stew is like rice in gumbo, I want to try to make gumbo! I'm not worried about thickening the gumbo since okra, file powder (ground sassafras leaves), and super bony broth will make... (more)
I want to make a bisque soup for Christmas. The recipe calls for one cup of flour to thicken it. What is the best replacement Paleo-friendly flour to use and is the replacement a 1:1 ratio or something different?
I went to Whole Foods yesterday to purchase Blanched Almond Flour. Couldn't find any so I asked a guy there to help me find it. He couldn't. He then asked what I was using it for and I said baking, paleo pumpkin bread to be exact. He commented... (more)
Just gotta say... I LOVE THESE. I know making your own sweet potato fries is far healthier but sometimes I just don't feel like it... haha to say the least. On the ingredients of these babies though it does say "unbleached wheat flour" :( I would... (more)
ok so theres the long paleo tradition of using almond and coconut flour - im fairly new(ish) to paleo but very clued up on it. but i want to make paleo bread and other paleo baked goods to aid my diet. here is my dilema - almond flour - too high... (more)
I'm wondering what peoples thoughts are on masa harina. I rarely bake, but I've been using it as my main flour for tamales, tortillas, and even pancakes and crepes (made the recipe up myself). In my opinion, it stacks up pretty good to almond and... (more)
I saw in a recent post someone mentioned using starches in place of actual flours. Nut flours have phytic acid and wheat is out of the question. Coconut is apparently also a nut with phytic acid in the flour! So What do I bake with? If I want to... (more)
Ate some traditional Pakistani food today. They used Besan flour and spices to lightly season and crust the fish. First time consuming Besan flour and luckily there was no reaction in my gut, so I'm assuming it's gluten free. Would Besan be... (more)
So I'm getting married this fall and my Fiance and I are sticking to a paleo/primal menu, including the cake! We're trying to use this recipe: http://beta.primal-palate.com/recipe/coconut-cake/ for a coconut flour cake but we've had it vary from... (more)
As far as I am aware both of them are mostly glucose that is quickly metabolized. Why is once safe and the other bad? EDIT: The best answer I've seen is a difference in the corresponding proteins, the simplicity of the glucose molecules, and the... (more)
Has anyone had a reaction to Pamela's GF flour Mix? I don't have the bag in front of me for the ingredients, but my sister and nephew had diarrhea within minutes following making some pancakes with it, and my daughter just had a couple slices of... (more)
What do y'all think about Keller's GF Flour, Cup4Cup? http://cup4cup.com/ Ingredients: Cornstarch, white rice flour, brown rice flour, milk powder, tapioca flour, potato starch, Xanthum gum (more)
You can't directly substitute almond or coconut flour into a traditional baking recipe and expect it to work right. Nut and coconut flours have very different properties than grain flours. I do second the suggestion to check out Elana's Pantry,... (more)
My wife and I are new to the paleo lifestyle, so we're going through our cabinets and getting rid of most of our flours, pastas, sugars, etc. We've got some Bob's Red Mill Garbonzo and Fava flour, and we're not sure whether to keep it or not. I... (more)
Not sure how Paleo you are in the Paleoleosphere, or what you want to do with them, but there are a variety of "flours" that you can use. Coating for crispy oven baking: almond, coconut - the flour or just dried coconut, macadamia nut Thickening... (more)
One of my kids has a nut allergy, but he's fine with coconut flour. So far I've made pita bread and chocolate chip cookies with coconut flour, but both still ended up super crumbly. I guess it's not too horrible for cookies, but it's still too... (more)
Try adding some tapioca starch, too. Coconut flour is too low in starch to allow for sufficient gelatinization.
I know there are plenty of people who enjoy white rice as part of their diet, but I was wondering what the general consensus was on white rice flour? Obviously it wouldn't make up a large part of my diet, but for the occasional home-baked good... (more)
As I mentioned on the other post, the Jaminets make use of rice flour (and potato starch etc) in their cooking. I've not gone that route yet. In general, there are folks who would find rice flour problematic for two reasons: 1) it's rice and 2)... (more)
