I know that it's paleo to use almond or coconut flour instead of regular wheat flour for baking. But in my region one cannot easily find those paleo types of flours and making flour of raw almonds or even coconuts is a crazy and expensive idea... (more)

It is expensive. It's also not really the most nutritious food (not that every bite has to be as nutrient dense as possible, but things that aren't should probably not be a daily food). If you want to have "paleo" baked goods on occasion, then... (more)

Yes you can, I do all the time and my cakes/cookies are wonderfully moist, just be sure to add egg and maybe a little chia for extra elasticity.

when i was on SCD, i used coconut flour mixed with almond flour. i usually didn't bake solely with coconut flour because i can't eat eggs. for some reason, you need more eggs when you bake with coconut flour.

It is just as paleo as any of the other paleo things we modern humans eat. If you want to be a stickler, then only food you hunted and gathered is paleo, and then you most likely ate it raw, or possibly roasted over an open fire.

It's very hard to work with coconut flour and expect it to act like wheat flour. Coconut flour absorbs a LOT of liquid.

Have you been tested for h. pylori antibodies? Coconut oil can be anti-bacterial and while h. pylori has a bad rap, if it's been there a while it's probably moderating the acid content of the stomach for you. Just a theory though.
