Q: Excited to try cooking gluten-free, I recently bought coconut flour. In the past I've substituted almond meal or flour for all-purpose flour in a 1:1 ratio with great success. However, when I researched coconut flour I read that it is really absorbent and difficult to bake with. 

What are some tips, tricks, or recipes to try when cooking with coconut flour?
