Why Coconut Flour
Coconut flour has a number of health benefits including aiding digestion, and heart health, and even can assist in weight loss (Mexican wave in celebration!!).
A 100g of coconut flour contains approximately 24g of carbs, which appears to be a lot higher than that of almond flour with only 10g of carbs per 100g.
However for every 100g of almond flour that you would use you will only need to use around ¼ (25g) of coconut flour; making it keto-friendly and healthy.
Coconut flour is quite dry. Therefore absorbs moisture from other ingredients when baking.
This means that your baked goods stay moist and they do not dry out and end up crumbly!
Also, coconut flour tends to be cheaper than almond flour so, if you are doing keto on a budget substituting almond flour for coconut flour, where suitable, can be a good option.
The coconut flour creates a great texture to this pastry and you cannot taste the coconut.
