  • coconut flour

    I asked this elsewhere, but since this is the most active forum, I'll also ask here.

    Does coconut flour smell or taste like coconut? Hard as I have tried to learn to like coconut oil, cream, etc. I just can't stand the taste/smell. I want to use coconut flour in recipes, but I'm not going to buy it until I hear that it doesn't "smell". I've wasted too much money on various brands of oil, etc. trying to find one I can tolerate.

    Thanks for your help.

    I haven't noticed any distinct coconut smell/taste to the coconut flour I have been using - like a lot of things it is probably going to vary by brand.

      Thanks! Mind telling me what brand you use?

        I've only tried Let's Do Organic brand and it did have a slight coconut flavor.

          I have used 3 or 4 different brands and they all have a slight coconut flavor. It's nowhere near as strong as extra virgin coconut oil and is easily masked with cheese, garlic, onion salt when baking.

            Encouraging! Keep the comments coming - maybe I'll be heading back to Amazon later today.

              The one I have right now does not have a strong coconut smell. More of a hint of coconut with hints of nut in general. I used it to make egg and bacon muffins the other day and there was no smell when being baked or once finished and no hint of coconut flavor in the muffins themselves.

              I had transferred it to a resealable container, so not 100% sure which brand I have, but I think it was Bob's Red Mill? I got it at Publix.

                The one from Nutsonline.com is mild.

                  My Bob's Red Mill stuff is pretty mild too.

                    My probem with Bob's is the price, usually $10-11/#.

                      Ouch! It's not that much here, more like $8-9 I think. But it's the only kind I can get locally anyhow.

                        I use Bob's Mill Organic, it doesn't smell like anything to me, and doesn't have a coconut taste. But then again I don't mind it, so I'm not sure that I would notice...

                          I always hear of the coconut taste from the oil/flour when cooking, but I've never noticed it and I use coconut about everyday. Probably 3 brands of oil and flour each over the past few years. Maybe I love coconut so much it doesn't stick out or maybe my sense of taste is off. I always go heavy on the coconut products though.
