    I would love to pre-order the cookbook but, I am allergic to almonds and can you tell me if a lot of the recipes call for almond flour? I love your stuff because it’s COCONUTs and don’t want to waste my money on a cookbook that I can’t use most of the recipes. I live in high-altitude area so it’s not real easy to just swap out flours and amounts, so I feel like I spend alot of money on recipes that flop instead of fly!! Thank you for your feedback, Wendy

    Thank you for a lovely puddle of melted “cookies”. Followed the recipe exactly including the home made macadamia butter and it was a flop. What a waste of beautiful ingredients and my afternoon.

    Hey I am new to your website and I find it amazing ! My kitchen has everything coconut stocked : virgin coconut oil, coconut milk powder, coconut flour, coconut butter, coconut flakes. I want to try this macadamia nut chocolate cookies but can I use almond butter instead ? Thank you.

    I don’t see a reply to Celmah’s question: can we use almond butter instead of macadamia butter?

    You can use almond butter instead of macadamia butter.
    I just make some today and it came out good.

    I’m making these now!
    (Literally, the dough is in the fridge as I type)
    I am so excited to try them. I am new to gluten free baking so this will be the 2nd coconut flour recipe I have ever made. I can not wait to see how they come out. Thank you so much for having such a wonderful website full of great recipes & information! ❤
