Let's Do...Organic Coconut Flour is made from certified organic fresh coconuts.
After separating the rich, white coconut meat from its shell, we use pressurized steam to remove most of its fat. We thoroughly dry the defatted coconut before milling it to a fine flour. Although its texture is very similar to wheat flour, Let's Do...Organic Coconut Flour is completely gluten free, high in fiber and about 20% protein. Organic Coconut Flour is wonderful in baked goods, and delicious in your favorite smoothies (with the benefit of adding healthful protein and fiber).
Let's Do...Organic Coconut Flour may replace wheat flour completely in many recipes with great results (see our Brownies recipe below for a perfect example). In other recipes you may only want to replace up to 25% percent of the wheat or other grain flour with coconut flour. When you replace other flour in recipes, be sure to increase your liquid by the same measure. For example: if your recipe calls for 2 cups of flour and 1 cup of water, you could use 1/2 cup coconut flour plus 1 1/2 cups other flour. Then you must add an additional 1/2 cup water to total 1 1/2 cups liquid.

Preheat the oven to 350°. In a medium saucepan over low heat, blend butter and cocoa powder. Remove from heat and let cool. In a separate bowl, mix the eggs, sugar and vanilla. Blend this into the cocoa mixture. Stir in the coconut flour until the batter is no longer lumpy. Add the chocolate chips, if desired. Bake in pre-greased 8x8 baking pan for about 30-35 minutes. Allow to cool before cutting into squares.
