Make Coconut Flour & Milk from Coconut Flakes

Post image for Make Coconut Flour & Milk from Coconut Flakes

Baking shouldn’t be a pain – when I get the urge to bake, I want to bake – and sometimes, that means making due with what’s already in my cupboard. If you don’t have coconut flour or coconut milk on-hand, you can make your own coconut flour and coconut milk from coconut flakes.

The coconut flakes can be substituted with fresh coconut meat.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Soak 2 cups organic unsweetened coconut flakes (or raw, fresh coconut meat) in 4 cups of water for 5 hours.
  2. Put the coconut and water mixture into a food processor and process until smooth.
  3. Preheat oven to 200 degrees F.
  4. Over a large bowl or glass measuring cup, strain the mixture through the cheesecloth, squeezing as much liquid out as you can.
  5. This liquid is the coconut milk. Transfer the fresh coconut milk into a glass, airtight container and store in the refrigerator.
  6. Spread the coconut pulp from the cheesecloth onto a baking sheet.
  7. Bake until the pulp is dry (if the pulp starts to brown, turn down the oven as it's starting to toast rather than dry).
  8. Using a coffee grinder or your food processor, grind the dried pulp until you have a fine powder.

Hi

Thank you for sharing

I would like to ask, does humidity give any effect to the moisture of the coconut flour processed? As i am living in south east asia with high humidity, and would wonder if it would effect the outcome of the flour.

thank you

Hi there,

How much coconut flour (in grams) does your recipe give?

Is it cheaper to buy coconut flakes and make the flour yourself or is it cheaper to just buy coconut flour?

Thanks and Happy New Year!
