    Ok, who's hiding the coconut flour?

    So, we've tried the largest Asian market in the West Phoenix, AZ, area, Trader Joe's and our local supermarket in the regular and organic/natural aisle.

    Nobody has coconut flour. Flakes, oil, milk, cream, powder, but no flour.

    Suggestions?

    I love this website. No matter how much you order they only charge $5 shipping and they are really good about packing and shipping.

    I also use Wilderness family naturals for coconut products

    The coconut spread is delicious!

    My Trader Joe's doesn't carry it either (I think some do), nor do any of the regular supermarkets in my town. I bought a large bag at my health food store for $5.29 which I think is pretty reasonable as all the recipes seem to call for 1/2 cup or less. In fact, I used it to make coconut pancakes today.

    Good luck!

    I bought my last batch from TT watch for a buy 1 get 1 sale- they run them fairly frequently. Time before that I got a decent deal off of Amazon.

    Yeah, none of those places in Atlanta have it either. I don't think the flour is used in Asian cooking. *shrugs*

    Anyway, Whole Foods or a health food store are the go-to places.

    We'll try the Whole Foods or Sprouts. We have both in the area. Joy of living some place with nearly 3 million people in the metro area...pretty much everything is somewhere.

    Soror, what is "TT"? I ask because, in my industry, it's often a shorthand reference for a company that make military soft goods like vests, pouches and backpacks. Somehow, I don't think they sell coconut flour.

    Hi Roberta - Do you know the sugar content of the spreads? And, have you tried the flour?

    The plain coconut spread has no sugar and is delicious!. The others I believe are sweetened with agave. If you click the link for each product it will give all the nutritional data. I have tried the flour. They have a high qaulity product imo.

    I just grind my own coconut flour. I put about twice as much desiccated (dried) unsweetened coconut flakes in my food processor, and give it a few pulses and it's done. Now my food processor will do it, but my Magic Bullet actually works better. It has a blade much like a coffee grinder, and that seems to make the best flour. The flour takes up less room than the flakes, so that's why I grind up about twice as much flakes as I need flour. I also find that keeping my coconut frozen helps when I make flour because the oils don't interfere as much.
