PF, I would like to try your cabbage dressing. I don't happen to have Teriyaki sauce, but I may try to make it with soy sauce, sugar substitute, ginger, garlic, rice wine vinegar and a dab of molasses.
Steve, From some of the online sources I've seen coconut flour used in coconut shrimp and on another source they said coconut flour was difficult to use as a breading for frying (too clumpy). Almond meal/flour sounds like a great idea. I loved the picture.
I used the first link in GotGarlic's post to make crackers.
3/4 cup coconut flour (which turns out to be 3 oz)
2 T water
4 T butter
4 oz cheddar cheese
1/4 t. dry mustard
1/4 t. salt
1/8 t. cayenne pepper
2 oz parmesan cheese
Added, three eggs for moisture and structure.
Put in everything except water and eggs into a food processor, then add water and eggs.
It made a soft dough, I rolled it out between two sheets of parchment.
Bake at 350° F for 15 minutes, sprinkle with salt and score into cracker size (1 and 1/2 inches). Bake another 20 minutes, starting to brown. Turned oven down to 300° F for another 20 minutes to get them completely dry. I may bake them more to get the middle crackers drier. There are 25 crackers and 20 partial crackers, so approximately 35 crackers.

Isn't it odd that a cup of coconut flour is only 3 oz?
They smelled slightly coconutty when they began to bake, that went away and they started smelling cheesier by the end.
These will do in a pinch (on keto), they taste okay, could use more salt, and they'd make a good base for a cheese spread or dip, and they need that. The texture, well, it's odd, but they are holding together well and not breaking up due to the eggs. (because breaking up is hard to do....
I can really see coconut flour used in cookies. I can't fathom yet the idea of making biscuits or bread with it. (but I will be trying that)
Some online sources like the one above said coconut flour is very absorbent of liquid, and a rule of thumb is 1 C flour to 6 eggs+1 C water.
Go Keto-Team! (Kathleen, that made me laugh)
