Try these coconut flour recipes for scrumptious yet healthy keto-friendly dishes.
Going on a keto or low-carb diet doesn’t have to mean saying goodbye to sweet breakfasts and desserts.
While coconut flour sometimes gets a bad rap in the baking world, I’m here to defend it.
Coconut flour is a great source of fiber, protein, fat, and minerals, making it a relatively healthier option.
Some say it makes baked goods dry and dense, and that may be true to a certain extent.
But if you arm yourself with information on how to use it right, coconut flour will reward you with scrumptious, low-carb treats.
Want sweet breakfasts and scrumptious desserts and still keep the carbs and sugar at bay? These coconut flour recipes are here to save the day.
1. Coconut Flour Cookies
What better way is there to start a selection of sweets than with chocolate chip cookies?
These cookies are flavored with peanut butter and dotted with chocolate chip cookies.
Just like chocolate chip cookie dough, they’re soft, pillowy, and bursting with decadence.
The use of coconut flour and coconut sugar make these treats low-carb, gluten-free, dairy-free, and paleo-friendly.
2. Coconut Flour Brownies

As an added bonus, this recipe is embarrassingly easy. It’s so simple, you can do it with your eyes closed.
