home made organic coconut milk & coconut flour

I’ve been running dangerously low on supplies……

It’s a rare moment where I’m caught with an empty pantry & an order which calls for an ingredient I no longer have stocked.

Shameful, I must admit, but apparently I too am human.

The question is, what is a girl to do when she has an order for here amazing sugar cookies, & yet, is all out of coconut flour?

Easy. Make her own coconut flour.

Why yes, yes I did say I was going to make my own organic coconut flour. How’d you like them coconuts! (see what I did there, that slight of words & slip of a movie quote?)

We can argue all day about store-bought vs. homemade coconut flour, really. Both have HUGE plus & minuses that can be pitted against each other. At the end of my day though, I’m all out & I know for a fact that an order wouldn’t come by post till way after my cookies are due for delivery. So for me, it’s an all win situation. Not to mention that a by-product of making my own flour results in a full litre of freshly made organic coconut milk that comes with absolutely no preservatives or additives! See?

Win. Win. WIN! Situation.

One could really say it’s a twofer.

For now, mix this up in as large or as little a quantity as you would like & keep it on hand.
