5. Fold in blueberries.
6. Spoon mixture into lined muffin baking pan.

    I was wondering can I use WW flour instead of coconut flour?I can’t find it anywhere here where I live and if so,how many cups then?

      You most definitely can, if you’re not paleo. If you are paleo, sub for 1/2 cup more of almond meal. If you’re not paleo, sub for 1/2 cup WW flour

      They are pretty fluffy and light. I didn’t use baking powder or soda because I made them while I was doing the whole30. Feel free to add some if you like!

    Could i sub the almond flour out for all coconut? Or even replace it with an egg white protein powder?

      I would not suggest it, these are already pretty dense, and adding more coconut flour will make it worse. I’ve personally never used THAT much egg white protein in a recipe, so I’m not sure how it will turn out. Are you allergic to almonds?

    no, i just don’t happen to have any almond flour on hand right now. Thank-you for your help though! I’ll have to run out to get some soon 🙂

    Can i sub coconut flour with oat flour?

      You can, but you would have to change the other quantities of ingredients. I’d have to personally play around with it to get the right amount! If you try it, maybe try about 1/2 cup oat flour and 2 eggs? Let me know how it turns out!

    I’m allergic to almond flour. Do you think I can substitute the almond flour for tapioca flour? Or do you suggest something else.

    Can I substitute tapioca flour for the almond flour. I’m allergic to nuts.

      I have personally never used tapioca flour so I’m not sure how it would work in this recipe. Sorry!
