Now you'd certainly notice if you add it to a pancake or a pound cake recipe. But to be honest you might not notice the difference in something like a brownie recipe but as one food blogger wrote quote though the waste Less Angle. Real me in. It's the nutritional aspects that really sold me. The real reason I'd cook with coffee flour again is not for its flavor but for the nutritional boost it offers end quote and it is sometimes touted as a nutritional powerhouse.
