    Is this recipe enough to fill your family up? We’re going to attempt to go wheat free and see if is helps a few things but we don’t have much in the way of GF choices here for baking.

      Depends on the day! I typically double it, but often that leaves left-overs. Coconut flour is more filling than most grains.

    Do you think these would still turn out well if the ingredients were mixed by hand? I don’t have an immersion blender and I’m not even sure what it does (blend slowly, maybe?). I do have a Vitamix. Not sure if it would blend slowly enough?
    Thanks for any response, Rachel!

      It would work in your vitamix. An immersion blender is exactly like a blender, but on a stick, (basically). You need something that mixes very well, because coconut flour can clump easily, so a regular blender will work well.
