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.

“My husband and I have ordered several times from Nuts.com and we will keep doing it! The products are amazing! We haven't tried anything we didn't like! We usually make the same orders of Coconut Flour, Almond Flour and Raisins but this last time we tried the Veggie Chips and the Pecan Date Rolls. First the Veggie Chips are absolutely wonderful with some homemade guacamole or some pineapple salsa! The Pecan Date Rolls are just out of this world delicious! Thanks Nuts.com for fast service and excellent products!!!”

“LOVE nuts.com products and customer service! You guys are life savers and have a life long customer here. Due to some crazy allergies my diet has had to change drastically over the last few years. Thanks for keeping the quality high, prices great, selection AMAZING and making cooking fun for me again :). The almond flour and coconut flour are my go-tos but I recently ordered the squash chips and mushroom chips and they are so so good. Will be re-ordering soon. ”

“This is the first time I have ever ordered anything from Nuts.com and it was such a great experience. Coconut Flour in the store is very expensive so I decided to try this out. I was very impressed on how fast it arrived with standard shipping and loved that there was a little "extra" gift inside the package, I believe it was flax seed for us to try. Totally unexpected but really appreciated! Would buy from Nuts.com all the time!”
