    This recipe smells amazing but sadly does not work with the coconut flour listed in the ingredients. It’s possible with a regular gluten free flour blend it will, but the coconut flour absorbs too much liquid and even with copious amounts of milk, does not cook properly on a pan.

    I used coconut flour and i don’t know if the measurements listed here are off, but they were a complete disaster. as soon as i added the flour it soaked up all the liquid and i couldn’t get them to cook. had to chuck everything away unfortunately.
