Eating My Way Through the Alphabet: Letter C

What’s Cooking in Gail’s Kitchen? Foodstuff Redefined: Coconut Flour Brownies! Every once in awhile I need a gluten-free recipe for sharing. The bonus is a healthy alternative to sugary sweets with high caloric count. Coconut flour is high in fiber and lower in carbs, yet free from wheat and grains. I like its hint of coconut with a mild, slightly toasty flavor. Don’t be discouraged by the cost. A little goes a long way.

  1. Delicious, I just made paleo coconut flour brownies. They are so good. Did you find that they got dry quickly? I have never used coconut flour before. Right after baking they were soft and moist but after sitting in an airtight container in the fridge they got sort of dry. I may have over baked though, could be my fault. Wondered if you had this experience as well.
