    8. 8. Is coconut safe for people with Tree Nut Allergies?
      The Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network states that coconut, the seed of a drupaceous fruit, has typically not been restricted in the diets of people with tree nut allergy. However, in October of 2006, the FDA began identifying coconut as a tree nut. The available medical literature contains documentation of a small number of allergic reactions to coconut; most occurred in people who were not allergic to other tree nuts. If you are not sure whether you can tolerate coconut, consult with your doctor first.

      Yes, the All Purpose Flour Blend contains no added sugar.
      1. General Baking Questions

      2. 10. I see there is a separate recipe for waffles on the pancake mix box. Can I use the basic pancake batter for waffles instead?
        Absolutely! They will come out just as delicious! .
      3. 11. Can I use your All Purpose Flour in my Grandmas chocolate cake recipe?
        Yes! Our All Purpose Flour Blend has been formulated to replace regular All Purpose (wheat) flour, cup for cup, in any recipe. No need to toss your old cookbooks. Use it for cakes, cookies, muffins, brownies, pie crust, quick breads, scones, pancakes, waffles and much more!
      4. 12. How do you properly measure your All Purpose Flour and Pancake Mix?
        Spoon the flour into your measuring cup and level off with a knife. You should never use your measuring cup and scoop it directly into the flour bag.  This may cause unwanted packing, resulting in an overly thick batter.
      5. 13. Do I need to add xanthan gum to my recipes while using your All Purpose Flour?
        The beauty of our All Purpose Flour Blend is that xanthan gum is already inside. Simply take any recipe (cake, cookie, etc.) and just replace the flour cup for cup. It’s that easy!
      6. 14. Some of your mixes call for vegetable oil. Can I use other oils such as coconut or canola?
        Absolutely! We love using extra virgin coconut oil to replace veggie oil. Whether you are using virgin or refined coconut oil, the oil will need to be heated and melted, so it’s in a liquid state
      7. 15. What can I use, in your mixes, as a non dairy butter alternative?
        If you are preparing any of our baking mixes that call for unsalted butter,  we suggest you replace the butter with extra virgin coconut oil, or shortening.  We suggest using shortening when preparing our Frosting Mixes.
      8. 16. What do you suggest using as an egg alternative in your mixes?
        If you are looking to use egg replacements in our mixes, you can certainly use the Ener-G brand of egg replacer, or an equivalent brand. However, we love using ground flax seeds and water.  In order to create this mixture, mix together 1 tablespoon ground flax seeds + 3 tablespoons water, for each egg.  So, if the recipe calls for 2 eggs, you’ll mix together 2 tbsp. ground flax + 6 tbsp. water
