  1. Is there anything one could use to replace the almond flour in this recipe?

    1. It will probably change the texture a bit since almond flour doesn't absorb as much liquid, but you can use additional whole wheat or oat flour - I would try only using 2 tablespoons of flour of choice in place of the 1/4 cup almond meal. Hope this helps :)

  4. The recipe calls for 1 whole egg, but the method has egg whites listed. What should be used?

    1. Oh good catch! It is one whole egg. I will fix that in the "method" section now. Thank you for pointing that out :)

  6. Made this tonight. I used oat bran instead of oat flour and was worried about the outcome. But it is super delicious! Nice texture! So glad I doubled the recipe and have one for the freezer. Thanks for sharing this winner!!

    1. I'm happy to hear that replacement worked! I may have to try that next time - I love to bake with oat bran. And you're very welcome. So glad it was enjoyed (& doubled) :)

  7. Hi Nicolette, do you have any suggestions to replace the wheat or oat flour that would be gluten free?
    Thank you

    1. I actually use a gluten-free oat flour. If you can't find that, I recommend using almond meal flour and coconut flour at a 1:1 ratio to replace the oat flour cup for cup. Does this make sense??
