Preparation Time: 20 minutes

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, liquified
  • 3 tablespoons honey

  • 1/3 cup almond meal/flour*
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour, sifted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Add the oil, honey, applesauce, chia seed meal, and vanilla to a bowl and mix with an electric mixer. Then add the tapioca flour, almond flour, and coconut flour. Mix again.
