First off, it's the ideal substitute for wheat for those with celiac disease or gluten sensitivities. Second, it boasts healthy fats, fiber, and protein. Finally, it's just delicious and can make your kitchen smell like a tropical island. We rounded up some of the finest selections in this category.

Editor's Notes

September 19, 2019:

Anybody with celiac disease or gluten sensitives, as well as those who are simply avoiding wheat flour for general health reasons, know how difficult it can be to find an alternative that lends baked goods a similar texture as what they may be used to. While the hard truth is that there may be no other option that truly recreates the exact texture of wheat-based bread, there are some that, if used correctly, get extremely close, such as the coconut flours on this list.

If you want something that won't impart your baked goods, or savory ones for that matter, with too much coconut flavor, we recommend getting Let's Do Organic 100%, Arrowhead Mills Organic, Bob's Red Mill GF, and Gluten Free Mama Blend. This final one isn't actually 100-percent coconut flour, but instead is a blend of four different varieties, which is part of the reason it doesn't have an overwhelming coconut flavor. Don't worry though, the three other flours included are also gluten-free.

For those who are looking for a stronger coconut flavor because they feel it will work well with the particular baked goods they are making, some chocolate coconut brownies perhaps, we recommend Terrasoul Superfoods Unrefined, Cookoo for Coconut, BetterBody Foods White Flour Alternative, and Nutiva Nurture Vitality Superfood.

While most of these are higher in fiber and protein, as well as lower in calories than wheat flours, there are a few that really standout in these categories. For example, Nutiva Nurture Vitality Superfood has eight grams of fiber and four grams of protein per serving, while also boasting just 45 calories.

If you are worried that even the mildest of coconut flours may have too strong of a flavor for you, you may want to consider tapioca, cassava, almond, or chickpea, all of which are also suitable for those with celiac disease.
