Reviews for this Book:
A Real Learning Experience
Shirley Priscilla Johnson
Being allergic to so many foods that I know of and some that I do not know; I was eager to read this book.
As I read the information I was truly surprised at the problems that wheat and gluten cause in people that they are not aware of, myself included, and wheat is in just about everything that we consume. That is not good for those of us who are not informed of the problems wheat intolerance can cause.
However, take heart! The author gives us a wonderful alternative in the use of coconut flour. This versatile flour can be used to make just about any recipe that you want, with a few adjustments. Coconut flour is also good for you. It improves digestion, helps regulate blood sugar, protects against diabetes, helps prevent heart disease and cancer and can even be in aid in weight loss. Sounds almost like a miracle flour doesn’t it? Perhaps it is.
This work is absolutely chock full of easy to understand information on the use of Coconut flour and its benefits. The author has also given page after page of delicious recipes that use this flour and can be substituted for those you now use. You can still have the foods you love but without the bad effects of wheat.
This is a well thought out, well researched book and one that as you read it, you can tell the author knows his subject matter. That is comforting.
If you are concerned about your health, looking for some answers to improve it this work is for you. I’m going to keep it close by as a reference and share the valuable information I have acquired from it. Great job! Great book! I recommend this one.
It’s great stuff! I’ve made bacon muffins, brownies, blueberry tarts, blueberry pancakes and each item has been delicious!
I have just purchased your books Cooking with Coconut Flour and Coconut Cures. I really enjoyed both of them. I am allergic to gluten and wheat so I am thrilled to find new recipes to try as I have been using so many flours and additives to bake with and then the breads etc. were not that good. Everything I have cooked out of your books have been wonderful and so much more reasonable in cost and ease in mixing.
People Are Amazed
I love Dr. Fife’s Cooking with Coconut Flour book. People are amazed at not only the wonderful taste of the products from these recipes but that they are made from coconut milk, coconut oil, and coconut flour. An added benefit is the easy digestion of the products.
I Love, Love This Book!
This is the most wonderful treasure ever created. I love, love, LOVE this book!!! My whole body and being thanks you for this book. I have successfully prepared 11 of the recipes and love them all. It is such a blessing to get away from that horrid yuck that is sold in stores as a gluten-free substitute. The recipes are so easy. Not only are they delicious beyond imagination but my digestion thanks you too.
I can honestly say that this book has changed my life! Low-carb and healthy has never been so delicious. I am not one for baking, but I just whipped up a batch of delicious cupcakes with chocolate frosting–and I can eat one guilt free! Coconut flour is high in fiber, low in carbs and delicious! I love the low-sugar recipe options, too. Basically, use half the sugar and add stevia to taste. Perfection!
My favorite is the pancakes recipe–I can now eat my favorite breakfast food every day. Hot tip: Add a couple of chocolate chips to each pancake for the ultimate (guilt free!) decadence. Mmmmmmmm.
Lo Carb Recipes
I now can enjoy muffins and cakes guilt free. My glucose reading were very stable after eating muffins made with coconut flour. The recipes are easy to follow and they did have no or low sugar alternatives. My family was pleased.
LOVE The Coconut Flour Muffins!
Harry M Mathis
I now make pumpkin, pineapple/banana, and sausage/cheese coconut muffins and freeze – nuke a couple for breakfast – they’re not only good for you, they taste GREAT! This cookbook discusses how to use coconut flour, many of the recipes incorporate coconut oil, and gives you enough information to improvise even further…..
I’ve only tried one recipe from this book so far, but I’ve read many of them. These are great recipes. Many with very few ingredients. The recipes are very simple and the one I tried so far had great results. Everyone who tasted the cookies loved them! One co-worker asked for them 3 days in a row. And I just happened to have some with me all 3 days.
I noticed that by using coconut flour, there is very little flour used in each recipe, but if you don’t like to use a lot of eggs, you may not like a lot of these recipes, as there are about double the number of eggs used as in recipes with wheat flour.
The end product was quite tasty.
Glad I Have This Book
Brenda M Russell
IF you don’t have a problem with eggs, this is a great recipe book. I’ve made several of the muffin recipes and and a few of the loaves as well. I really like the taste and texture and have recommended the book to several people. Whether the results are high or low carb depends on which recipe you choose, and you do have a choice for many of them of using the stevia-only versions. You don’t have to use a recipe with cornmeal or cornstarch; they’re in those particular recipes for a reason, but not in all of them. You can choose coconut milk, or any other non-dairy milk. I don’t get why some reviewers make things so difficult for themselves. Can they use every recipe in every other cook book they buy? I’m not interested in every recipe in the book, but there are many more I have yet to try, and will. Of those I have made, the ingredients, except for the coconut flour itself, are all readily available.
Great For Using Coconut Flour
I have found the recipes in this book to be very tasty and have enjoyed all of the recipes I have tried with the exception of the pancakes which just didn’t seem like American pancakes to me. Be advised that you really must stick to the ingredients recommended, no substitutions.
I think one could safely say that it is a comprehensive guide to cooking with coconut flour.
Coconut Flour Recipes And More
I found this book very helpful in incorporating more coconut flour into my gluten free diet.
This book explains the benefits of cooking with Coconut extremely well, and has wonderful recipes!
Love This Cookbook!
When I got my copy in the mail, I was surprised at how wonderful the recipes looked when I flipped through the book. So far I have made the pancakes and meatloaf and both were very good. This book is a keeper and I just know I will use it daily. I have been looking for a way to replace wheat for a long time now (not allergic to wheat, just want to cut back on the amount I eat day in and day out). I have tried almond flour and protein powders, but not thrilled with the out come. I went ahead and ordered the coconut cookbook by Bruce Fife also. Can’t wait for that one to arrive. You must try this book if you are serious about adding coconut to your lifestyle. I cut back on dairy also, so the use of coconut milk is another plus. This Boy can cook, that about sums it up for me.
Cooking With Coconut Flour
Simply wonderful! Have tried many of these recipes and they are all wonderful – As someone with low blood sugar and gluten intolerance, this is especially wonderful! My whole family loves the recipes. A must for anyone wanting healthier food for the family!

Cooking With Coconut Flour: A Delicious Low-Carb, Gluten-Free Alternative To Wheat is an excellent cookbook and practical guide to creating breads, cakes, frosting, breading for fried foods and much more using coconut flour. Coconut flour is regarded as hypoallergenic because so few people are allergic to it, unlike wheat, dairy, and even soy flour. Coconut flower is also ideal for heart health because it contains a type of fiber that reduces cholesterol levels, and is a good food for diabetics and others who must watch their blood sugar because it has a low glycemic index. The beginning of Cooking With Coconut Flour offers general tips and suggestions, followed by a multitude of recipes for coconut-flour pancakes, Cheese Muffins, Strawberry Chiffon Pie, Spaghetti with Meatballs, Chicken and Dumpling Casserole, Hawaiian Nut Bread, and so much more.
