Excellent cookbook called "Cooking with Coconut Flour," by Fife. The best part is the tips and unique characteristics of coconut flour. The (simple) recipes are developed for, not adapted to, coconut flour.

I got my copy on Amazon. Very worth the small price.

Civilized caveman's emails, too. Perfect season for culinary experimentation.

The site I really wanted to say was "Against ALL Grain" not Against the Grain. That's probably a different one (sorry for slip of the typing fingers)

She's just written a new cookbook, and even hubby (who still will eat gluten) thinks we need to make some of her recipes.

Thank you CMCOLE! You are right; there are a lot of free recipes for the googling! I'm so glad to have read this topic since I had forgotten about this, and one way to keep healthy eating fun is variety! emoticon

a lot of my baking is non-wheat, whether a mixture of flours that I create myself; or a single source like coconut or almond flour.

I've also used something like Bob's Red Mill and other brands of Gluten-Free mixtures.

Check out "Against the Grain" for lots of great family-friendly ideas.
There are coconut flour and almond flour cookbooks on kindle for free or very little, as well, if you don't prefer the printed version.

My "go to" recipe is from Civilized Caveman - a banana bread with no sugar, coconut flour, and lots of cinnamon and bananas. I often add cocoa powder to make it a chocolate-banana bread, and have even made the mixture into mini muffins. Everyone I've shared it with thinks it's astounding. My storage technique is to slice it and place each slice in snack-sized zipper bags, and freeze it; thawing one at a time as a treat. (my hubby hates banana-based baking items)

Hi!
Just wondering if you've continued baking with non-wheat flours, and are willing to share your experience.
I've never baked before, but am tempted by non-wheat goodies.
Thanks!

If a recipe calls for almond flour, and all you have is coconut flour, prepare to make adjustments.
After making a mess; I managed to find something regarding coconut flour that would make all the difference:

recipes with coconut flour have a high percentage of wet to dry ingredients, as the coconut flour is so dense and absorbent.

Lesson learned.
Crumbly, dry cookies (thankfully not a lot of them - I didn't double the recipe, thankfully)
