Recipe looks amazing, I am going to try it with poppy seeds instead of chia seeds. I love the mixing bowls you are now using = the ones with handles and pour spout. Do you have a product recommendation on those?

How important is it use the 3 different flours?

I have a nut allergy. If I omit the almond flour what should I use in its place? This recipe looks really delicious

I think it would still work to use a combination of more of the oat and coconut flour

Hi, what do you recommend substituting for coconut flour? Thank you!

Almond or cashew flour.

I never have any luck blending dates adequately. I’d like to substitute maple syrup or date sugar for the dates. Any idea what the ratio would be?

Can I substitute flax for chia as they upset my stomach.

Hmmm that is a good question that I honestly don’t know. Now sure how they would turn out.
