Low Carb Rich Waffle Coconut flour is a great addition to a low carb lifestyle.

It's yummy and versatile! It is also gluten-free.

This "Rich Waffle" is a good example of the delicious things you can make with coconut flour.

You can find the recipe for the Low Carb Rich Waffle and a variety of other recipes using coconut flour in the links below.

Coconut flour is low in carbs, so it is great for those following a low carb lifestyle, including diabetics. It doesn't contain gluten, so it's also a great choice for those who are gluten intolerant or want to avoid grains for other reasons. It is also high in fiber and protein.

Coconut flour is more than ground up coconut; it is made by defatting and drying the coconut before grinding it. Some people have tried grinding unsweetened coconut themselves and have had mixed results with it.

Because it doesn't contain gluten, coconut flour behaves differently than flours that are made from grains. Some recipes use eggs for leavening; other recipes use no eggs at all. With some experimenting, it isn't difficult to get good results with coconut flour in many different recipes.


There are coconut flour recipes online and in books, but I have found many of them contain sugars and/or quite a few carbs, so they don't work well for a low carb lifestyle.
It is possible to decarb some of these by subbing low carb ingredients for the higher carb ones.

I like to dream up my own recipes using coconut flour, like this "Berry Yummy Crunch."
