I'm just not comfortable cooking with that much coconut oil. WAY too much saturated fat for "healthy." The verdict is in: Coconut oil was a bad idea and the fad is finally over.

Also, 1 1/2 cups of almond flour has 80 g of additional fat and 50% more calories than wheat or oat flour... This recipe is not a great idea.
