  • Coconut Flour a treat?

    I know that almond flour should be used sparingly and as a treat but what about coconut flour. If I made muffins or savory baked goods out of it would say one a day of these things be fine or is it more like once per week?

      It depends on what your goals are and if coconut flour helps or hurts you achieving your goals. Start with once a day if that really helps you be happy, and then see how it goes. Don't restrict yourself unless it is hurting your progress.

        I am mostly wondering for my 2 yr old twins... they are growing and obviously have no fat to lose. I was curious about it because I saw some frittatas on nom nom paleo and to make them less liquidy the suggestion was to add a few tsp or tbsp of coconut flour to them. And also I noticed a lot of people baking with coconut flour as opposed to almond flour and was curious as to the reasoning of this and if it was health related.
