Coconut substitute

Friday, June 16, 2006

Question:
When a recipe calls for coconut to be added, particularly with biscuits and cakes, what can I use in place of the coconut? I am highly allergic to coconut, as are a number of my friends.
Helena Pearson

Answer:
As coconut is usually part of the dry mix, you could replace it with an equal amount of the flour used in the recipe; unprocessed bran; oats; ground nuts or even chopped dried fruit.
