I hoped it wasn’t true, and I even made those coconut drop biscuits (and loved them). But I started itching really bad afterwards so I can’t have coconut. Besides, I had allergy testing a while back and the test results showed that I’m allergic to coconut.
So, I tried substituting other flours to make more of the drop biscuits, but they flopped. Big-time. (I used all-purpose gluten-free flour and almond meal, and also used ghee instead of coconut oil.)
What’s a good recipe for gluten-free biscuits, muffins or quickbreads?June 26, 2012 at 1:32 pm #85518

Have you seen the bread recipes on the forum? You can make the cocount bread recipe and use oat bran, rice bran, tef, or a mixture of all three.

I just looked at each and every recipe within the forum and 98% of them call for coconut flour, and the other 2% just didn’t sound good. Guess I can’t have any bread whatsoever, which will make things VERY difficult for me. I love sweet breads and wish I could make something without using coconut flour or coconut oil.
I can’t spend 24 hours a day every day making my food. I have a full-time job and am a mom to 6-year-old twins. I’ve already fallen off the wagon again because this is just so difficult. I don’t know what to do anymore. Being allergic to coconut is a real bummer.
I’m getting extremely depressed about all this.June 26, 2012 at 2:28 pm #85529

Try out my bread recipe with almond meal, teff, buckwheat, and oat bran (instead of the 1/2 cup of coconut flour)…contains no coconut whatsoever and probably tastes good.
Or try out my recipe with 1/3 almond meal, 1/3 teff, and 1/3 buckwheat. 1 cup of each.
You only need to bake my bread once a week and it takes about 15 minutes to make it (plus the hour its in the oven).

Good – thanks! Seems that a lot of recipes call for a LOT of preparation. I just don’t have that kind of time.
