Benefits of Coconut Flour according to LiveStrong.com :

1. Coconut flour is made from dried, ground coconut meat so those who have nut and gluten allergies this is a great substitute.

2. Coconut flour enables you to bake some of your favorite cookies, pancakes and cakes without the serious side effects that may come from ingesting wheat.

3. With 5 grams of fiber per tablespoon, coconut flour has far more of this indigestible carbohydrate than whole-grain flour, which has 0.8 gram per tablespoon, or white flour, which has just 0.2 gram per tablespoon. 

*Makes you feel fuller longer   *deters constipation 

* enhances colon health

4. Moderate Effect on Blood Sugar

5. Higher Protein and Healthy Fats

*A 100-gram serving of coconut flour has 19 grams of protein while wheat flour has just 10.

*Coconut flour also contains about 9 grams of healthy fats per 100 grams.
