Michelle, why did you choose coconut flour? OH, do I have a reason (actually a couple) for you. This tropical ingredient has a slew of benefits:

Helps Digestion. 

Coconut flour is high in both soluble and insoluble dietary fiber . Fiber cannot be absorbed by the body which means it flows right through your body. Even better, it takes some of the carbohydrates found in coconut flour, toxins and waste in your body along with it–A total body flush. 

Boots Metabolism. 

High in healthy fats, the body can easily use these for energy, to support your metabolism, balance blood sugar levels, and much more!

Regulates Blood Sugar Levels

A low glycemic food, consuming coconut flour does not spike blood sugar levels. This is important to maintaining a healthy weight. The balance in blood sugar means your cravings for sugar and more food won't spike from consuming coconut flour.
