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.

I'd say yes, but there's a slight issue. If you use a good oil that won't smoke and isn't full of PUFAs, you'll be fine, the problem is that fried carbs cause the creation of acrylamide which is a carcinogen. I'm not aware of any studies done on... (more)

I have a recipe that I would like to change to a Paleo Recipe. Can you tell me the Almond and Coconut Flour equivalents to substitute in place of regular Flour. Thank you. Judy R.

Judy, you really can't do a 1 to 1 swap in most recipes. Almond and coconut flour behave completely different than wheat flour. Can you share what recipe you are trying to paleofy? Maybe someone has a recipe that is similar that you could tweak. (more)

I agree, 5 tablespoons seems like a lot - that's roughly equivalent to half a cup of wheat flour in baking. I'd use shredded/flaked coconut instead to avoid the absorbency issues. Plus it's cheaper per ounce, though I'm not sure how the fiber... (more)
