However, there are many options using coconut flour and almond flour. I prefer coconut flour for desserts as the flavor is less nutty compared to almond flour. Another plus for coconut flour is that it is highly absorbent and less is needed cutting down the total calories. For sweeteners I prefer monk fruit which is a zero carb and calorie sweetener. Any erythritol based sweetener will do as these do not produce insulin spikes like some other artificial sweeteners such a sucrolose or aspartame. If you want to use almond flour replace the 1 tbsp coconut flour with 3 tbsp almond flour.
