Kokonte is a staple food eaten in many parts of Ghana, Togo and other West African countries. It is primarily made of dried cassava flour.

The method of preparation is similar to that of banku and tuo zaafi. It has a unique brown color which differentiates it from banku, fufu, akple or tuo zaafi.

Kokonte or konkonte is mostly taken as lunch or dinner and served with groundnut soup, okro stew, light soup, palm nut soup or ground pepper.

Kokonte also known as face the wall is sold in local eateries (chop bars) in Ghana and can also be prepared at home.
