Quick Tips:

You can find almond/ coconut flour in the health food section at your local grocery store, or on Amazon. Look for blanched almond flour.

Replace the honey with pure maple sugar and replace each egg with a flax egg. You can make a flax egg by combining 1 tbsp flax meal with 3 tbsp water and allowing it to sit for 10-15 minutes.
