I have been using this coconut meal though never made a flour of it, in many of my cooking recipes like chutney powder, chutney, sambhar, vegan ice creams, replaced them with bread crumbs. Recently read a blog post from my friend Shri Kripa on how she used coconut flour in baking cookies. So wanted to try this flour in baking, my family love brownies and so decided on eggless brownies. I have already baked twice in a week now. We loved the taste of these delectable brownies. I have used cane sugar instead of refined sugar and applesauce as egg replacement in preparing these brownies.

Coconut flour absorbs more water compared to other flours. When I baked these brownies for the first time, they turned slightly dry and crumbly, next time increased the liquid content. So I feel equal proportions of liquid to flour ratio is always useful to get a good result. The texture was amazing. It was soft, gooey, moist chocolaty and totally a gut friendly recipe; if you love coconut flavour then this is a must try brownie recipe.

My Notes:

Baking temperature settings depend on individual oven.

Be careful not to burn the coconut, keep a check at intervals.

Usually I use coconut flour within one week from day of preparation but can be refrigerated for long time. Coconut flour absorbs more liquid content so study the liquid to flour ratio.

These brownies are slightly on a sweeter side, if you want less cane sugar can be added.

Place a parchment paper at the bottom of baking tray for easy removal.

Do not bake for long time, it will dry the brownies.
