If you've been following along with An Herbal Bedfellow, you know that I have done two reviews and giveaways for Tropical Traditions and their coconut products. Today I want to talk about Tropical Traditions Organic Coconut Flour.
I usually use regular white flour or wheat flour so this was something totally new to me.
Even though there is a long list of coconut product recipes on the Tropical Traditions web site. I went straight for the Chocolate Fudge Brownie recipe on the back of the bag. We are very big brownie fans in this house, so I thought it would be fun to try something new.
We found the brownie to be very tasty and chocolaty in flavor, but if you are prepared for the same texture you're used to, you will be surprised. This flour created a more dense brownie. We tried them both with and without frosting and preferred it with frosting. It seemed to add the mositure that we are used to. Tropical Traditions Coconut Flour is organic and USDA certified. It's a product of the Phillipines, producing a long list of items ranging from household products, to skin care, to pet care products. I have a new puppy just four months old, so that will be my next venture into the world of coconuts. It's so much fun to try something new, don't you think?
