BOB’S RED MILL FINELY GROUND TAPIOCA FLOUR
Like cassava flour, tapioca flour (aka tapioca starch) is made from cassava root; however, tapioca is the starch extracted from the vegetable (cassava flour is made from the whole root). Tapioca can be used in baking or as a thickener for sauces. You can also swap it for cornstarch (just use double the amount of tapioca).

NOW REAL FOOD ORGANIC COCONUT FLOUR
Made from dried, ground coconut meat, coconut flour is a staple in Paleo baking. Keep in mind that coconut flour is very high in fiber, so it sucks up a lot of moisture –that's why you usually only need to use small amounts.
