100% Certified Organic Coconut Flour
I have used Swanson organic coconut oil for several months and would never use anything else to cook with. It is the best for sauteing.
I cringe when someone uses olive oil to fry with, which always leads me to share what I know about break down of olive oil into carginogens when used at high heat and that coconut oil is superior for this purpose. Use Olive Oil in salads.

a great alternative for baking
This Coconut Flour is easy and convenient to use. The taste is a little different but not bad. You need to double the amount of eggs to use with it which can get a little expensive if you don't have chickens. I also tried using a combination of whole wheat flour and this product and the results were even better.

I use this instead of oils in baking recipes for the added health benefits and flavor. I also use it as the oil I fry my coconut flower pancakes in.

Good Quality Coconut Flour
Our family is highly satisfied with this coconut flour. Living in a rural area, ordering this product (which is unavailable where we live) from Swanson's is wonderful. Not only is it conveniently shipped to our home, but the product itself is truly 5-star. We use this flour to replace 20% of our wheat flour when baking, which works well to provide an alternative to all-purpose white flour. Although the dough or batter may have a coconut smell, it dissipates after baking if you only use the specified 20%.

One of my favorite Swanson products
My husband and I are gluten free, and I am nearly entirely grain free. I missed all the wonderful breads, cookies, cakes, etc., and the GF box mixes are loaded with sugar. I purchased this product when it first came out, along with the cookbook, and read the cookbook cover to cover. Nobody that I serve these delicious baked goods to ever believes they are not only grain-free, but high in protein, and fiber as well. The reviewer who did not like the product needs to try again, this time with Dr. Fife's recipes.

While coconut flour seems a bit pricy at first, it doesn't take nearly so much as gluten flours do for really delicious recipes. If you are new to coconut flour (as I was) be sure to also purchase the coconut flour cookbook to avoid mistakes.

unless you need gluten free avoid
This pretty much ruined everything I put it in. Unless you need gluten free and therefore have to accept the denseness of this gooey or gluey result, I recommend to get the benefits of coconuts from another product. I experimented with different proportions with wheat flour, temperatures, additional hydration etc. Every trick I could learn for using this flour returned unsatisfactory results for our texture and taste buds. I had been hopeful but realize not every healthy product will be acceptable to us.

Best coconut flour!
The first coconut flour I bought was the Swanson brand, and then bought the "other" brand that Swanson sells. The Swanson coconut flour is superior in quality and taste- worth the extra price. I love it!

Hello again, chocolate cake
Awesome, awesome, awesome. I bought this on amazon (from Swanson) and just baked a sugar free super low carb chocolate cake with it. I have to say, this stuff rocks. It adds a very subtle aroma and sweetness that I absolutely love! It's not quite actively coconut-y- you wouldn't be able to tell that it was made with a coconut product if you didn't know, but there's just something very floral about the taste that is unique. Remember to use a ton of extra eggs and a bit of oil in any recipe where you substitute this for wheat flour! Otherwise it can be dry. Also, this cooks up very densely, so don't take too big a slice either! It's very velvety and flavorful- I think I'd be cooking with it even if I wasn't trying to lower my carb intake!

Best choice for baking
This coconut flour is a very nice flour to bake with. You don't use very much of it any of the recipes. It is a very light coconut flavor.

Coconut flour is great for those trying to cut down on gluten or gluten free diets. I make a wonderful Cranberry-Walnut bread from it. Like to see new recipes.

This is such a fun product to use. It is delicous and has the highest fiber of all flours. It is also very nutrious for you. I have never tried it before, but now I am using this to bake bread on weekly bases. I also recommend buying the book "How to cook with coconut flours" which swanson also sells. Coconut bread was filling, tasted delicious and easy to make once you follow the direction.
