Hi Guys,

I'm pretty proud of myself on this one. It tastes unbelievably the same as mashed potatoes! I don't measure stuff while cooking, but this is what I used:

Coconut flour
Butter
Lots of coconut milk to thin it out
Salt
Pepper

Ok and I know some of y'all don't believe in microwaves, but I microwaved for about a minute and then mixed all the milk around until the right "mashed" consistently, and OMG, it's mashed potatoes, for real!

Nom, Nom! I even added a little Texas Pete hot sauce just like in the olden days of starch eatin' and ahhhh I could not believe it! I'm getting ready for meat and "potatoes" again, shepherds pie, etc!

Going to bed now with a full and satisfied tummy.

Sounds promising! I will give this a try. I do miss potatoes.

Now I just need to find a 5 lb bag of this stuff, instead of the tiny Bob's Red Mill package!

Here in the States, I've been getting mine from amazon.com: Azukar Coconut Flour (Pack of six 16-Ounce Bags= 6 lb) for ~$20 using their Subscribe & Save, which includes s&h. However, they occasionally run low on it.

Sounds good.

Isn't it gritty?

Also, just be careful eating that much coconut flour all in one go as it is extremely high in fibre (38%) which could play havoc with one's gut...too much of a good thing maybe? crazy2

Thanks for sharing Lauren! I'll try it soon as I have bought a bag of coconut flour and wasn't sure what to try making first.

Chelsea,

It is not gritty as much as it is just dry. So I put a lot of coconut milk in it to soften it up. You also need to put a decent amount of salt in to counterbalance the coconut's natural sweetness.

Thanks for the heads up on the fiber. Hopefully it won't give me too much trouble!

I just finished eating a batch of it, and it is so surprisingly close to mashed potatoes! After I made mine, I put some cheese and bacon bits on it so that it was a bit like having a baked potato. I see a lot of room for experimenting with this.

Thanks for this lauren!

With Thanksgiving and all I really miss the potato and stuffing factor. I did these potatoes and added fresh chopped rosemary right at the end just so it would heat thru and release it's flavor. Then I put butter on them so it melted into a little pool of loveliness. Hit the spot over and over smile Thanks for sharing.
