  • Binding agent for coconut flour



    What is a good primal substitute for eggs in coconut flour recipes? I'm trying to primalize some rice-flour based Indian festival snacks. Festival foods are vegetarian and no eggs, therefore. Will using water hold it together?

    I keep meaning to try out making "tortillas" from nothing but coconut flour and water, but I haven't gotten around to it yet. (Hot weather sucks for experimenting in the kitchen.)


    Hmm, now I'm thinking that coconut milk would probably work better than water; I'll have to try it both ways.


    Fried in coconut oil after patting them together, of course.

      Gums are used by the makers of gluten free products to give a bit of adherence.

        coconut flour does not like to stay together without eggs. i've tried the gelatin as egg-replacer trick and that doesn't work. (makes fabulous pudding/custard though, lol) if flax is acceptable, you could try the "flax goo" egg replacer. (we can't do flax, otherwise i'd experiment myself.) anyway - 1 Tbsp ground flax to 3 Tbsp water. heat in microwave. fluff with a fork. put in freezer to cool/gel for a few minutes, fluff with fork again (till frothy).
