  1. Wouldn’t eating those two flours raw be hard on the stomach? I’ve used coconut flour quite a bit, but always in baked goods or a microwaved muffin-in-a-cup. Seems like you could bake the crust in the tins before you put in the wet ingredients and freeze them. Have you tried this?

    • There is not need to bake the crust, as the digestibility of the flours will not change. Compared to grain-based flours, coconut and tigernut flours are much easier on the stomach. I enjoy the convenience of using these flours without baking, as they do not taste “raw” and are often used without cooking.

  2. I don’t buy the canned coconut milk b/c most contain guar gum… and concern for the lipophylic nature of the chemicals in can lining particularly with full fat foods. In my expereince homemade coconut milk does not generate as much coconut cream on top as the coconut milk in the can…do you think this will work with the homemade version? Thank-you!
