    Can I make this with coconut flour or almond flour? If so, is it the same measurements? Thanks!

    1. Nutiva Team Nutiva says:

      Hi Kimber – Yes, you could try, but make note that if you use Coconut Flour, you would need to use more liquid. Learn more about Coconut Flour here -> http://bit.ly/N13CF Let us know if you give it a try!

    please can you include nutritional values for the foods too ? for e.g. how many calories fat etc.

    1. Nutiva Team Nutiva says:

      Hi Smaira – We do not currently offer calorie breakdown on our recipes; but there are lots of easy online calculators you can use, such as Spark Recipe or My Fitness Pal.

    the recipe says 1/ cup peanut butter – is it just 1 cup? or is the / an indicator that it’s more or less than that? That could make a big difference in the recipe…

    1. Nutiva Team Nutiva says:

      Hi, Susan! Thank you for inquiring. No, it’s just 1 cup of peanut butter. We will update the recipe. Thanks!

  4. Lori says:

    If you use ww or ap flour would the amount still be the same?

    1. Nutiva Team Nutiva says:

      Hi Lori,
      The portions should be about equivalent. Let us know how they turn out!
