    These look yummy! Could I substitute almond flour for coconut flour? I recently purchased some coconut flour so I wanted to use it. I’ve read that coconut flour is more absorbent than almond. What would you recommend? Thanks!

    I made these this weekend and they’re really good. I subbed 1/4 c. maple sugar for the coconut sugar and added 1/3 c. chopped pecans. Left off the frosting. They’re just sweet enough.

    Jeanine, I’ve been making muffins with coconut flour and generally they take no more than 3/4 c. flour and 6 eggs. It’s much more absorbent. It would probably be better to find a basic coconut flour recipe and adapt it to be pumpkin-y. I felt very decadent using as much almond flour as this recipe calls for.

    Would anyone have a suggestion for a substitute for the cream cheese frosting, or something that is dairy free but similar to the cream cheese?
