Conversion Table for White Flour to Almond and Coconut Flour

By Timothy Gamble

I am a Type 2 Diabetic, and control my blood sugar through diet and exercise alone (no insulin, metformin, or other drugs). One way I do this is by not eating any grain products, which includes no white/wheat flour. In recipes that do call for white flour, I always substitute almond flour or coconut flour instead. It can be a bit confusing, because you have to use more almond flour than white flour, yet less coconut flour than white flour (and you must dd extra moisture to the recipe in the case of coconut flour). I put together this conversion chart for my own use, and thought I would share it with my readers. Happy, healthy eating!
