Cinnamon Rolls with Tropical Traditions Coconut Flour

Tropical Traditions organic coconut flour is fiber from the coconut meat after most of the oil has been extracted to make Virgin Coconut Oil. It is certified organic, unsweetened, and has not been treated with sulfites.


 Tropical Traditions organic coconut flour is high in dietary fiber and protein, and is gluten-free. It has more fiber than gluten-based grains. Tropical Traditions organic coconut flour can be added to standard wheat-based recipes to add extra fiber, by substituting 10-30% of the grain-based flour with our coconut flour. Some recipes, such as muffins and quick breads, can be accomplished with 100% Tropical Traditions organic coconut flour and therefore be 100% gluten-free! (See some free recipes below.) Since organic coconut flour contains natural sugar from the coconut meat, baked goods need less sugar added. The organic coconut flour has a mildly sweet coconut taste!

Tropical Traditions organic coconut flour also contains over 19% non-gluten protein! Therefore, it makes an excellent addition to shakes and smoothies where fiber and protein are needed. Or simply dissolve a spoonful in water as a high-fiber drink with a coconut flavor! This organic coconut flour is very versatile and very tasty. Sprinkle it over your favorite dishes to add a wonderful coconut flavor, use it as a thickener in soups and sauces - the possibilities are endless! 
__________________________________________

 I used the coconut flour in a traditional cinnamon roll recipe(click for recipe and instructions).  No one noticed and it didn't change the taste or texture of the cinnamon roll.  I've never baked gluten free or even partial so I'm not familiar enough to know if it changes the texture or taste of the recipe. This recipe calls for 3 1/2-4 cups of flour. I used 2 cups of flour and 2 cups of coconut flour.  Next time I'm going to try and only use the coconut flour. 

I have a few more recipes that I will post soon.  Do you use coconut flour? What is your experience? If you want to win a a bag enter below!  Thanks to Tropical Traditions for supplying me with a bag to test recipes and a bag for the winner of my giveaway!
