This formula is used in many vegan recipes or those who are allergic to eggs. If a recipe is heavily based on eggs, this substitution will not work. Ground flax has nearly 70 calories per serving 2 tbsp or 14 grams , 5 grams of total carbs, 4 grams of fibre and 3 grams of protein. This makes flax meal flour only 1 net carb per serving, and one of the best low-carb flours in terms of net carbs. Most bags do come in an airtight bag. If not, you can use an airtight mason jar for storage. You can even freeze portions. But, you can make your own sunflower or pumpkin seed meals using a sturdy food processor or coffee grinder.
I was wondering if I could substitute it with flaxmeal? BUT… I need help. I keep running into the same issue over and over with so many recipes.

If there is coconut oil in a recipe and you are allergic, you could swap it for another solid fat such as butter if you can tolerate that.
As for adapting recipes to remove coconut flour, as you have already discovered, it takes a lot of trial and error which is why I only write substitutions when I have spent time getting the volume of almond flour and eggs correct. There is no easy and guaranteed swap. Try these ones that have been developed just using almond flour — Almond flour bread , almond and orange cake , Bakewell tarts almond cupcakes , Fat Head pizza.

Hi, Libby. This is a great article explaining why we can enjoy nuts, but be cautious of which type and how much. Nuts have become readily accessible too often and eaten it too larger quantities. I just found your site a few days ago. How strong is the almond flavor? How strong is the coconut flavor? My downfalls are pasta, brownies, etc.. I found this article very helpful though. I wish I knew why! And the consistency is a super fine, chunky powder that clumps. Does the flour carry the same strong flavor?
I personally think it has a mild taste I understand what you mean about almonds can sometimes have a strong taste.

My vegetarian cousin swears by it. Not sure how it does as a sub for other flours that others use for keto recipes.
Anything else you would suggest? Hi Kathy, I would persevere with coconut flour. Can you tell me what flour you used and how you measured it?
Also, did you use real butter? It looked like an alright combo of flours, it had xanthum gum in it, and it had a different chocolate chip cookie recipe on the bag, so I thought it would work well. And, yes, I used real butter. All can be found at various stores or online. Thank you for the advice! I appreciate your quick feedback! Martin Clunes' Mallorcan paella. Alesha Dixon's spicy prawns.
