Wellllllll,        I've been seeing a LOT of recipes using coconut flour, milk & meat. I see in the Typebase, they're an avoid for everyone but A nonnies. O's get a double whammy.
Are they good for something besides eating? Cuz apparently, they're not good for that!!    Much like oranges (lucky B's).

Well some of us have coconut oils as diamond in our swami
( just like oranges are superfood for me  )

I must admit that I sometimes use other coconut products
since it is so good to bake with( when one wants to avoid grains) and taste goood  
I try to keep it as a minimum- but for me it is a less evil avoid

try grated carrot.....makes a good substitute for coconut meal in recipes......add a bit more compliant oil

I usually use almond meal in place of coconut flour in recipes.

I have also used the almond meal/flour in place of coconut flour.
Good idea on the carrots Lola & then that gives me another idear.   grated parsnips.
I've been using ghee for oil. Is there anything else?
I did see a recipe that called for full fat coconut milk. Sooooo, if one uses, let's say almond milk in it's place, should we add a little ghee to make it "full fat"?

I would use homemade almond milk and use less water so it comes out thicker- more like cream than milk.

Yup. Full fat coconut milk is thicker and creamer than lowfat coconut milk. Extra-thick almond milk is the perfect substitute.

Another method is to use a thinner liquid, but less of it. Way before BTD, when we used to use soy or rice milk in pumpkin pie (because we wanted a dairy-free pie to serve with a meat meal) we'd use 8 ounces of soy or rice milk in place of the 12 ounce can of condensed milk the recipe called for.
