This is my open love letter to coconut flour.
If you’re a Foodie Fiasco veteran, you are well aware of my love affair with coconut flour. It’s low carb, lower in net calories than pretty much every flour out there, and it’s also pretty flipping delicious.
Coconut flour is much more absorbent than wheat flour, so it might be a little confusing the first few times you work with it. But fret not! I’ve dedicated a post to tips on how to use my favorite ingredient, so it can become your favorite too.
I’ve admittedly been in a coconut flour hibernation, but I’m luckily starting to embrace my flour power again. So to celebrate the inevitable flood of new cf (that’s the cool new abbreviation for coconut flour I just came up with so please go with it thanks) recipes, I’ve collected and ranked my 12 favorite coconut flour recipes of all time for your viewing and chewing pleasure.
Warning: This post may induce extreme joy coupled with an everlasting love for coconut flour and an overwhelming desire to make every recipe on this list. I love you too.
Let the coconuttiness begin!

The magic of the caramelized bananas paired with the delicate sweetness of coconut flour makes this recipe stand the test of time as one of my absolute favorites. It’s been years, but I distinctly remember eating the whole tray the first time I made these. Good thing the whole tray has only 355 calories!
