My Versatile Low-Carb Bake Mix and Coconut Flour

I want to share something with those of you who have my books or are thinking of buying them. Not so long ago I ordered Coconut flour from Netrition.com and wondered what to do with it. I realized that it was high in fiber and that is a plus on a low-carb diet. This very finely ground coconut flour incorporated into my substantially low-carb bake mix (Splendid Low-Carb Bake Mix) instead of the whey protein powder (same amount) makes for wonderful moist baked goodies. The primary drawback for baking with coconut flour on its own is that it can make baked goods dry, however, this is not a problem used in my bake mix. This coconut bake mix works really well in my muffin, loaf and cookie recipes requiring Splendid Low-Carb Bake Mix. It may also be subbed for white flour cup-for-cup in your own favorite recipes from yester year before low-carbing in similar recipes.

I hope some of you have as much fun with this as I have!

Hi Vikki,

As much as I'd like you to have one of my cookbooks, this bake mix is available on my blog on the first screen, and also for the complete recipe, see holdthetoast.com

Yep, I broke down and gave the recipe away. I'm hoping this will not result in loss of sales, but I suspect it will. :-)
