      Hi Jenna
      I have made this with many different kinds of flour so no it doesn’t matter. I have used white flour, spelt flour and whole wheat.

    Hi, is there an alternative for the coconut oil ?

      Hi Elisa
      The Oil makes is moist. another substitute would be 1/4 cup apple sauce but I cant say for sure I have never tried it. If you don’t have coconut oil any other healthy oil would work or light butter. I hope it helps

    […] these muffins are very similar to my Banana Bread recipe. I just add a few new ingredients and boom we end up with a whole new creation. Now Please […]

    Hi, I tried this but my batter was not liquidy, it was dry kinda looked like the consistency of cookie dough batter, what is the batter consistency have to look like? Is there anything I can add to make it less dry? I added everything that the recipe called for. Instead of oat flour, I used coconut flour & wheat flour.

    Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

      Claudia!
      Whats Happening? I hope you figured it out. Coconut flour is so tricky to use. it always needs more eggs and liquid because of its absorbency. I haven’t mastered baking with it yet. I would have assumed your problem to be solved by just adding some water or almond milk. let me know what you did.

        Hi Rena,

        I do not use eggs in my cooking, would you recommend flax egg for this recipe? Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

          I cannot say for sure since I have never tried it. I have seen many vegans use it in baking so I am assuming that it should work. If you try it let me know I would love to find out how it comes out.
