Can I use almond flour instead of coconut flour?

You can use almond flour as a replacement for coconut flour, but you will have to adjust the whole recipe due to the extra absorbency of coconut flour.

To replace coconut flour with almond flour in your keto recipe, follow these recommendations:

  • Replace every 1/4 cup (1 ounce) of coconut flour with at least 1 cup of almond flour.
  • Decrease the amount of liquid in the recipe by using one less egg for every 1/4 cup of coconut flour that the recipe initially called for.

By using these two recommendations, you will be able to convert most coconut flour recipes into almond flour recipes.
