Remember when we talked about how to make your own coconut milk, and I promised I would explain how to turn the leftover coconut pulp into flour?
Well, have no fear; I am a woman of my word.
You’ll be happy to know that the process is super, duper easy, too!
- Coconut pulp from homemade coconut milk
Spread the pulp evenly on a cookie sheet.
Place the sheet in the oven for thirty to forty minutes. Be sure to check it regularly so that you do not bake your flour; remember, you are only trying to dry it. You could also use a dehydrator for this step, if you have one (lucky duck!).
When the pulp is dry, remove it from the oven and place it in a blender, food processor, or coffee grinder. Process until you have the consistency of a fine flour.
You now have coconut flour!!
I used the pulp from one batch of my homemade coconut milk, and it yielded about one cup of coconut flour. While this might not sound like much, keep in mind that just a tiny bit of coconut flour goes a looooooong way. For example, I only need half a tablespoon to make one of these giant babies.
|You are only FIVE minutes away from this deliciousness! Seriously, that’s all it takes!|
Have you experimented with coconut flour before?? What’s your favorite recipe? Does its super-cool-expanding-capacity-when-heating make you feel like the kitchen is your laboratory, too??
