Hi there! Thoughts on substitutes for the cashew and sunflower seed flours. We do very little nuts. What about tigernut and chia meal? Same quantities????

purelytwins January 24, 2016 - 8:14 am

You could try to use 3/4 cup tigernut and 1/3 chia seed flour as chia seeds have a very strong flavor.

Awesome…thank you! I am thinking of adding instant coffee or espresso powder to the filling and coconut cream! I will let you know how it goes and have a fabulous day!
