It's Thursday! Whooohooo! My Monday-Wednesday are Kah-Ray-Zy so I love Thursday's! How has your week been so far?
My Wednesday started out like most Wednesdays with a little extra fog. The air was cool and full of mist, but Sunrise yoga was still amazing. It seriously felt like we were doing yoga in the clouds the fog was so dense!
Not too shabby a way to start my Wednesday! Since going gluten-free, I have become much more adventurous in the kitchen, but flour substitutions still baffle me. Most of the time, I just go with Bob's Red Mill gluten-free all purpose baking flour anytime I need to cook. However, lately I have been experimenting with coconut flour, and have had a lot of success. Udi's, which is a gluten-free company, posted this chart on their facebook page the other day. It's a great reference for anyone who does a lot of gluten-free cooking!
Another great resource is the lovely Lisa at Thrive Style. She comes up with some AMAZING creations using coconut flour. She came up with coconut flour cookies, and I tweaked them to fit my current pumpkin obsession! I would highly suggest checking her blog out if you are interested in learning how to cook with coconut flour! Here's what the process looked like!
- 2 eggs
- 2 tbsp coconut flour
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 2 tbsp pumpkin puree
- 1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 2 packets of stevia
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
I hope you all have a wonderful Thursday!
What is your favorite flour alternative?
