    I really don’t like coconut flakes, and was thinking of omitting them, but at a half cup I’m not sure. Should I add a little more almond flour if I leave out the coconut flakes?

    • Andrea Schulle says:

      Hi Marcy! Since I haven’t tested it, I cannot say for sure, but I would suspect you would need a little extra almond flour. Maybe add extra almond flour little by little until desired texture is reached. If you give it a try, let us know how it goes!
