    I don't usually use the chocolate chips, but by the end of P4, you can use sugar anyway. I did find some dark chocolate chips at the grocery, but I am sure they had sugar in them. I just wasn't concerned about a few of them at the end of P4. You are correct about the art to baking with almond flour. I have never been a very adept baker anyway, so I like to find one or two recipes that I can master and stick with them.

    I think I'm going to skip the chocolate chips also - I'm not far enough into P4 to feel comfortable with them. I have some unsweetened coconut at home that I got from the health food store - I think that would be tasty!

    That sounds like a winner. Just be careful with it...the almond flour and bananas are fairly high in calories and it tastes so good, you will want to eat it up...LOL
    Remember portion control

    Nancy - I gave this another try last night except I substituted 3/4 of a cup of the almond flour with 3/4 cup of coconut flour. It turned out fine - I'm not sure if yours comes out dense but this one was moist but dense. I only had to bake it for 40 minutes and I used your trick of lining the pan with parchment paper - came out perfect! And delicious too!

    Great Mary. I was just checking to see how it turned out for you. It is definitely dense, but not dry at all. Great idea with the coconut flour. I have read that coconut flour is even harder to get used to, so I would never have thought of that. Glad it finally worked out and that you enjoyed it. I find that I am having to relearn how to cook after 30+ years, and it is a challenge, but I am enjoying it.

    So far I've made a few things with coconut flour - it's definitely cheaper than almond flour! It also gives baked goods a little different consistency - maybe more moistness but it doesn't change the flavor at all. You can't even taste the coconut in it. I found a good recipe for banana muffins that I'm going to post today - those are good too!

    I love coconut, so the coconut oil and flour are are wonderful. I bought a bag of the coconut flour, but actually have not made anything, so looking forward to trying your muffins and anything else that you have perfected. I find there is alot of "trial and error" with all this. I had a friend some years ago who wanted to open a bakery and she started "perfecting" things at home. Her poor husband gained 20 pounds in the process from all the tasting...LOL
