Organic Coconut Flour (Gluten Free)
Our organic coconut flour is one of the most savory wheat flour alternatives you can find. Low in carbohydrates and high in fiber and protein, coconut flour's high nutritional value makes it a part of many diets, including low-carb and gluten-free.
About Coconut Flour
Made of ground-up, dried coconut meat, our coconut flour is organic and unsweetened, although the natural sugars in the coconut make the flour mildly sweet. Some consider coconut flour just as tasty as wheat flour, if not tastier, and it has the advantage of being completely gluten-free. Also, organic coconut flour contains more fiber than any other flour, making it especially filling and a popular choice for those trying to lose weight.
Baking with Coconut Flour
Baked goods made with organic coconut flour are light and soft, with rich textures. Coconut flour can be substituted for up to 20% of the wheat flour in a recipe. Many gluten-free recipes use it as a base, including for coconut flour bread, cakes, and muffins. For a boost of fiber and protein, you can add organic coconut flour to smoothies and shakes, or try it as a thickener for sauces and gravies. On the lower right-side of the page, you can find several delicious coconut flour recipes.
Our Registered Dietitian's Top Pick
Our Registered Dietitian and Health Nut likes to swap about one-quarter of the flour in quick breads and cookies for coconut flour. This flour is made purely from organic coconut and has more fiber than other flours! Each tablespoon has about 6 grams of fiber, that is triple the amount compared to whole wheat flour which has only 2 grams of fiber per serving.
Coconut Flour Health Benefits
1) 100% Gluten-Free: Coconut flour is naturally gluten-free, making it a popular ingredient for those who have gluten allergies or want to eliminate gluten from their diet. It has a naturally high nutritional content which makes it an excellent substitution for wheat flours.
2) Protein Powerhouse: With 14 grams of protein per 100 grams of flour, organic coconut flour contains more protein than white, wheat, rye flour, and cornmeal flours. Protein is an important component in building and maintaining healthy muscles.
3) Full of Fiber: Organic coconut flour contains 43 grams of fiber per 100 grams of coconut flour, double the amount found in wheat bran. Fiber helps sustain the feeling of fullness and helps slow the absorption of sugar into our bloodstream.
4) Heart-Healthy: A 2006 study published in Innovative Food Science & Emerging Technologies found that the fiber content present in coconut flour is effective at lowering cholesterol levels and reducing the risk for chronic diseases such as diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular disease.
5) Helps to Regulate Spikes in Blood Sugar: Fiber-rich foods such as coconut flour tend to have a low glycemic index because they are better at regulating blood sugar levels. A 2003 study published in The British Journal of Nutrition found that using increased amounts of coconut flour in baked goods lowered the glycemic index of the foods.

“We love the almond and coconut flour! I used both for Thanksgiving baking and now weekly for our bread. I am gluten intolerant and my husband is diabetic. We have seen a significant improvement in his blood sugar numbers, and I am enjoying hot almond flour bread daily with no gut issues. Even my 33 year old son and his family loved the breads and dessserts. I even used almond flour bread to make the dressing for our Thanksgiving meal. It was completely gone! Our two year old grandson also enjoyed the Simple cranberries. They became his "go to" snack while at our home. Thank you! I am sharing recipes and your website. Love healthy, great tasting food. Thank you. Billye”

“Finding quality gluten-free flours is challenging, and finding them for an affordable price is nearly impossible. Nuts.com is my go-to source for GF baking supplies! Your products are fresh and delicious, and your delivery is astonishingly fast. The best part is that your prices beat the pants of anything in my area. I recently taught a GF Baking Class and the participants were so impressed with the quality of your flours, and couldn't believe me when I told them the price. I recommended your products to my baking students above anyone else. Thanks for the great products and service, and keep up the good work!”

“Various members of my family have adopted a low-carb paleo/primal approach to eating. I send almond and coconut flour to my mom so she can enjoy muffins and pancakes while keeping her blood lipids where her cardiologist wants them to be.
Bravo to all the Nuts for providing a great service to all!”
