I originally used chana dal flour (also known as "gram flour," "garbanzo bean flour," or "chick pea flour". This flour, made from chickpeas, is available at any Indian grocery or here on Amazon under one of those names). I continued to lose weight by using chana dal flour but it has a somewhat bitter taste.
I then tried the Chebe line of flours ( Chebe Bread All-Purpose Mix, 7.5-Ounce Bags (Pack of 8) ) which is manioc (tapioca) flour. Very good, highly recommended, but the dough gets very chewy.
I then tried cooking with just this coconut flour, in total disregard of the package instructions, which recommends not using this flour on its own but instead substituting a quarter of your regular flour with this. Big mistake to ignore the package directions. It wouldn't stick together and soaked up a huge amount of water. Total disaster.
I'm now doing as the package recommends and I genuinely love this flour. It's totally delicious and I wish I could use it on its own, but it's just not realistic. I'm now using a coconut flour-Chebe blend, with occasional coconut flour-chana dal flour days. And I keep losing weight without any other changes to my diet.
1 egg (for WW use 3 egg whites), 2 tbsp Coconut flour, 1 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, a splash of vanilla, splenda to taste ( I generally use a couple of packets, but if you are using liquid it will be different, Mix this together and cook in a glass cereal bowl about 2 minutes in the microwave and you have cake! Top with a little greek yogurt or cream cheese sweetened with artificial sweetner and it's yummy!
I know it is superficial - but I really like the container it comes in. Makes it easier and quicker on me to measure out what I need. I am pretty sensitive to the taste of coconut - so right now everything I make tastes like a Hawaiian special to me. I guess I will get used to it. Others say the taste is not overpowering, so I am sure I will get used to it. Don't get me wrong, the taste is not bad ... in fact it is slightly sweet and pleasant, just not the pure taste of pie crusts and breads that I grew up with. I would not go back to wheat flour - I think it caused inflammation and my breathing has been much better since I started to use coconut flour. (If you want some of the recipes I use - I think this book by Donatella Giordano is excellent: Coconut Flour! 47+ Irresistible Recipes for Baking with Coconut Flour: Perfect for Gluten Free, Celiac and Paleo Diets [2013 Edition].)
