Coconut flour

Using coconut flour for baked goods is great, but I don't use it a lot because I think it's quite expensive. Dessicated coconut is a lot cheaper, but the problem with it, is that it can be too course for some recipes.

A reasonable solution to that problem is to just take some dessicated coconut and put it in a food processor. Or you can use a stick blender to grind it into a finer consistancy. If you have an old coffee grinder you don't use for coffee anymore, that will probably work fine as well. It won't be as fine as the flour, but it's good enough to use for most cakes or pancakes.
