What is monk fruit sweetener?

It is a type of natural sweetener that is made from extract from the monk fruit. Since the monk fruit is 150-200 times sweeter than sugar most sweeteners are mixed with erythritol or other fruit alcohols. The benefit of using them instead of processed sugar are several. Monk fruit sweeteners taste exactly like sugar. Unlike stevia, witch has a specific aftertaste. They do not have any effect on insulin and do not cause cavities. Also, monk fruit sweeteners have zero calories per serving and there are no known side effects. We started using Lakanto sweetener instead of sugar a year ago and my husband was able to lose 40 pounds and keep them off.

Can I replace coconut flour with other flour?

No. This recipe works only with coconut flour. Unlike other flours it is very dense and absorbent. Baking is a science and wouldn’t recommend substitutions and improvisation.

Food safety.

Coconut flour sometimes undergo a chemical reaction after baking and the cookies might turn slightly green. Do not worry if this happens, the green tint is natural and it is safe to eat.
