This is destined to be served for morning to when my Wed. garden group next come to my place. How do you get coconut flour ?

I bought it from Organic Solutions in Unley Road.
Its great, I put it in curries or dips, just a large spoonful dissolved in a little water.
I use it instead of dairy to get a creamy flavour & texture.
It is certified organic and the brand is Aclara Health see www.aclarahealth.com.au for more information & recipes.

I just checked that site & it is out of date. They have a lot more products now. We also use their coconut oil.
