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!

  1. Thank you so much for this conversion list of flour ratios. I have been looking for one for some time. Very much appreciated.

  2. Thank you SO much! I have a lot of recipes I want to change out. This is absolutely great. And thanks for the tips on the coconut flour.

  3. Thank you so much. I needed this as I made a recipe for pot pie and substituted coconut flour and couldn't figure out why it came out so thick. Now I understand that I used to much and didn't add extra liquid. Thank you again

  4. Thank you! Just getting started on this healthy way of eating. Any way to know how much extra liquid is needed when using coconut flour?

    1. That I don't know how to answer. For me, it is just trial and error.

    2. Who knows the conversion for sesame seed flour?

  5. Thank you! Just made muffins substituting equal amounts of almond to white, they are so oily. i should have checked it out first, but you live, you learn. Thanks
