    Silly question alert!

    If "almond flour" = ground almonds, can I grind up dessicated coconut to get coconut flour?

    Ditto. Besides my Tropical Traditions brand, I've also been able to find the Bob's Red Mill brand at a few health food stores around town.


    Yeah, I bet it would be hard to get it fine enough (and dry enough) on your own. You might wind up with a big blob of coconut flavored goo. Hmm, that actually doesn't sound too bad to me!

    As PG says, coconut flour is defatted. It is the meal left after making coconut milk, dried, and ground. Definitely not the same as coconut for toppings.

    So if you do try making flour be very very careful!!


    Once you get past the point of ruining it and it turns into a ball of coconut butter you run the huge risk of say, adding some almonds or even cocoa powder!

    And then you've got something so dangerously tasty you won't be able to stop eating it.

    yes because it is not defatted ...they take the fat out of coconut to grind it into flour.

    I get mine from tropical traditions through Amazon.com and put it in big plastic container in fridge xoxo Darlene

    I used to have desicated coconut flour... leftover from making coquito years ago. It was in the freezer and we never did anything with it. It was saturated with rum at one time. Now I wish I hadn't thrown it away!

    Hmm, sounds to me like a good base for a primal snack bar.
