Coconut flour bread isn’t the same as gluten bread. It can be grainy and very dense, which is why we don’t use it for sandwich bread.
Other things to keep in mind when baking with coconut flour:
It’s not wheat flour. It may look like wheat flour, but it smells, tastes and acts much differently than wheat flour.
Very absorbent. Coconut flour soaks up liquid more than other flours do. As a result, you either need to use less flour or more liquid in a recipe for it to work.
It has a rougher texture. To get the lumps out and help it blend with other dry ingredients, you should always sift before using it.
