Coconut flour goodness

Almond flour is a great alternative to the regular kind, if you want to change things up a bit; but coconut flour is a true novelty! It is quite dry so you always need some eggs so that it absorbs the flour. I picked up a pack of organic free-trade farine de coco in a supermarket in Bretagne, and was ecstatic to get my hands on some recipes!
