- Coconut flour is not nutrient dense (of course, neither are grains). On the other hand, those eggs in the Coconut Pancake recipe are nutrient-dense, and satiating. But coconut flour in and of itself is not, so you don’t want to regularly fill up on it and lower your intake of more nutrient dense foods.
- Coconut flour isn’t satiating. Believe it or not, fiber doesn’t satiate you! That’s right. (Of course, neither do grains. But grains only make you hungrier.) Fiber gives you the physical feeling of volume in your gut, and it doesn’t stabilize your blood sugar and insulin for much longer than about half-an-hour, so it doesn’t “turn off” that hunger button in your brain. Trust me, this isn’t a big boo-hoo–fiber in and of itself isn’t yummy. And don’t even front, you know exactly what I mean.
