Coconut Secrets - Product Review

I have a new product review for you readers today!
They are.....
SUGAR AND FLOUR!
Woooooh!

Oh wait, this is a healthy foods blog... what am I doing review sugar and flour?!
That's right, that's right... it's healthy! Yes, you've heard me right, I'm going to tell you about sugar (well, it's kinda sugar) and flour - but it is not your traditional white sugar and white flour.

Enter-Coconut Secret
This company has a beautiful background story about how they are where they are in life right now. They sell a variety of products made straight from the coconut.

The two I reviewed are Coconut Flour and Coconut Crystals

So let's start with Coconut Flour!
If you've never used coconut flour, start now. There are so many reasons to using coconut flour - first, it provides a delicious, sweet and subtle coconut flavor. It also is a great alternative for those that cannot metabolically digest regular gluten-laden flour. But...the biggest reason-HEALTH! Coconut flour has soooo much fiber! 6g for every 2 TBSP! :O Not to mention the 3.5 g of protein for every 2 TBSP. all at around 60 calories.
If you do start to substitute coconut flour for your regular flour, be sure to find recipes that would be able to handle extra liquid because coconut flour requires much much more liquid than regular flour. You also may have to add more eggs. Just play around with it!
My favorite way to use coconut flour is in smoothies! It gives me extra fiber, protein and coconut deliciousness :)




Moving on... Coconut Crystals
Coconut crystals are a sweet-tasting, sugar alternative that has a low glycemic index. It also has less calories than sugar - at 30 per tablespoon. I have used it in a variety of ways, and I can tell you that even if you don't like the flavor of coconut, you will still like coconut crystals! They don't have much of a coconut flavor, but they do provide sweetness! It can easily be substituted for brown sugar in almost any recipes. *I really like to use it in coffee... shocker huh? :P
Just look at this comparison:
Woah! Right?!
Now I can say - this isn't sugar... it's my multivitamin! How sweet (punny I know) is that?!

I've been experimenting with a lot of different recipes substituting coconut flour and coconut crystals, as well as just creating brand new ones! As soon as they're perfected they'll be up for all y'all!
If any of you have tried either of these products and made so delicious-ness with them, let me know!

Thanks Coconut Secret for the chance to review your great product! I'm also so appreciative of your high standards you set for all your products - as a consumer that is a HUGE factor!

*All I was given from Coconut Secrets was their two products to review. All statements and opinions are strictly my own.

  5. The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to
    see if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube
    sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed
    and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic
    but I had to share it with someone!

  9. With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My website has a lot of completely unique content I've either created myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any methods to help stop content from being ripped off? I'd certainly appreciate it.

  11. Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I'm still new to everything. Do you have any helpful hints for novice blog writers? I'd definitely appreciate it.
