    1. In this recipe, I don’t know (it’s a guest post by Coach Katie! You can connect with her on her social media to ask though!). I don’t think coconut would work that well – maybe try a nut flour instead.

      1. Hi there Emily!

        Sorry for my late reply! I think you could use coconut or almond flour instead. It’s meant to act as a bit of a thickener and a binder and since it’s a small amount, I don’t think that it would make a huge difference. With that said I haven’t tried it, so I’m not sure. Please let me know if you have any questions. You can also reach me at @cleaneatingwithkatie on IG.

  1. I read that you shouldn’t eat uncooked cassava flour. Ever heard that before? I think It was in an article from Dr. Axe. I’m Interested in trying the recipe but wondering the same thing about possible flour substitutions.

    1. Hi Susan,

      Sorry for my late reply.

      I just replied to Emily above that I think other flours would probably work, but I have not yet tried them. Worst case, is that it would not thicken as well and you could serve it as pudding instead and top with the nuts and shredded coconut (I’ve done that when I was in a time crunch).

      Thanks for bringing up this question about eating it raw. What I found on Dr. Axe’s site says “Keep in mind that cassava must be cooked properly to detoxify it before it’s eaten, so never consume it raw.” I take “it” to mean cassava, so that it is, never consume cassava raw, not the flour. And on the Otto’s cassava flour site, they state that their product is baked. So if I believe cassava flour in this recipe works out ok, since it has been baked.

      If you’d like to send me the link to the article you found or additional questions, you can connect with me @cleaneatingwithkatie on IG.

    1. Hi Sheena,

      Sorry for my late reply. It should be fairly firm, so that it can be rolled into the nuts and coconut and still hold its shape. You may want to stick it in the freezer instead. I have also made it as pudding and just topped with the pecans and shredded coconut. and that worked out really well too.

      If you have further questions, please contact me @cleaneatingwithkatie on IG.
