@rumtscho Crap, I forgot you add 1 oz ground oat flour to the regular flour
 
@Catija no problem, it hasn't been baking day yet - I still have a quarter of a mango-peach pie in the fridge!
thank you for updating us
I also have banana (plantain) flour sitting around, will probably try that one.

@Catija that's one of those wierd cultural things I've wondered about...
there's 2 traditional ways of making coconut oil...
One's from copra - dried coconut flesh that's pressed...
the other is you basically let coconut milk settle, take the 'cream' then render it down...
Which I'm half certain isn't done commercially...
but the smell is a lot even more amazing...
 
@rumtscho Oooh, interesting! I've not seen that kind before!
 
I wonder if 'unrefined'/virgin coconut oil made elsewhere has a different processing method
 
..... yup something totally alien to me, figures :D
> Wet. This technique involves pressing both coconut milk and coconut oil out of fresh coconuts and then separating the two.
is just.... whaaa?
cause there's generally no oil in coconut milk, there's some natural emulsification
(source - my late gran's house has about a dozen coconut trees in the backyard :D)
