Anyone make coconut flour?

Does anyone here make their own coconut flour? I found this tutorial, it looks easy. Any thoughts?

http://www.ehow.com/how_5497666_make-coconut-flour.html

Is it really this easy? I'm tempted to try, but I don't want to end up w/ a messy kitchen and no coconut flour.

Is there anything else I need to know? Tips of the trade?

TIA!

I would be curious to find out if it is cheaper at the end of the day or not. Please update when you try it.

Yes, it really is that easy. I make all my own coconut products here at home with shredded coconut that I purchase in bulk. Flour, milk, water, butter, cheese, yogurt, kefir... it's all super easy if you're willing to put a few minutes of time into it. The worst part about any of it is the cleanup! And yes, it is much cheaper at the end of the day. For flour, it's about $10/lb in the store here or maybe half that if I'm lucky online (+shipping), & the cost of the coconut milk, my local store sells it in cans for $3.59/each for a soup can size (& that's that natural/organic either). I purchase the flakes in bulk from Wilderness Family Naturals & get around 25 lbs of flakes for around $85. I use that to make all the coconut stuff here & it's so much cheaper when you do the math. That and I have the flakes leftover to use (you strain them out when making the "milk" products) & I can still cook with them, make snacks, etc. I was worried I'd have invested in a ton of coconut but took the chance & it is more than worth it.

It's very easy, you just need to separate the meat from the nut, then squeeze the meat and remove any excess liquid, cut it into small pieces and put in cookies form. Bake in the oven for ten minutes, then put the meat in a food processor and blend until it is transformed into a fine powder.
