I have a great new giveaway for you guys today, sponsored by Tropical Traditions! You might remember that we recently talked about their Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil. Well, today we’re moving on to another part of the nut and talking Tropical Traditions Organic Coconut Flour.
Tropical Traditions sent over a sample of their Organic Coconut Flour for review. I’d never before cooked with coconut flour, and on first glance? This resembles nothing as much as Moon Sand in appearance and texture, lol. But the smell and taste? All coconut, all the time. I will say that I wish this came in a resealable bag — it was messy to open, and then I had to find a storage solution. But that minor quibble aside, what did I make with it right off the bat…
Why, Paleo Pork Chops, of course! And you can read the full step-by-step recipe over on Sunday Scratchups. These were super easy to make, and a huge hit with both Junior High Guy and low carb MashupDad. We’re not Paleo here, but I do have one wheat free guy and one low carb guy, and some of the Paleo principles translate well to gluten free diets and low net carbs. Plus, I was curious to see how the earlier Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil worked together with the coconut flour, since it’s fun to scratch new things up in different combinations.
The other thing that I do wish is that the nutrition information were in a more usable format. 3.5 oz is not a measure I’m normally going to use in baking or cooking, so I’d prefer to see that in something like tablespoons, which you could more easily convert. But again, that’s a minor quibble, and it is definitely low net carbs — especially when I ended up using only 1/4 cup for 11 chops (with some left over in the bottom of the bowl, even).
