    What’s a good substitute for coconut flour? I’m allergic.

    1. Hello Jay,

      You can replace coconut flour with almond flour. Replace every 1/4 cup of coconut flour with one cup of almond flour.

    I followed this recipe exactly. I had to bake my cookies twice as long and they were still raw in the middle. Had to throw them out 🙄. Big thumbs down for me.

    1. Hi, Diane. It sounds like you made the cookies too thick. If they are too large, it will take longer to cook and the outside will cook faster than the inside. Hope this helps!

  4. Simone says:

    How many carbohydrates are there in one cookie?

    1. Hi, Simone. One cookie has 2g of net carbs.
