    You can use almond flour as a replacement for coconut flour, but you will have to adjust the whole recipe due to the extra absorbency of coconut flour.

    To replace coconut flour with almond flour in your keto recipe, follow these recommendations:

    Replace every 1/4 cup (1 ounce) of coconut flour with at least 1 cup of almond flour.
    Decrease the amount of liquid in the recipe by using one less egg for every 1/4 cup of coconut flour that the recipe initially called for.
    By using these two recommendations, you will be able to convert most coconut flour recipes into almond flour recipes.”

    AmAzing! I made mini muffiNs and they turned out Perfect!

    Since someone said that it turned out too Wet, I used coconut flour + 1TaBlespoon, olive oil, 3 medium bananas, barneys almond butter(drier than most almond butters). Since the almond butter was so thick, i had to INCORPORATE it with the egg mixture using a blender on pulse mode. I baked them a liitle longer and they were Great. The large amount of CINNAMON is needed to prevent them from tasting bland, but it does mask a lot of thE banana flavor. Eojoyed them!


    Thanks for your good website and information !


    I wonder abut two cups of bananas. That may account for the sogginess. Also you indicated that almond flour could be used and so I used it instead of the coconut flour and that may have accounted for the very very moist muffin! Tasty, but hoping they will dry out.


      Did u compensate the measurement for changing flours, they dont measure the same

        Dixie Reynolds

        that is not in the recipe


    HI made these for my husb and he loved them, they came out brown, was the mesSurement for CINNAMON right?
