    Hi, I made the following recipe:

    and noticed that it was just too dry to work. So I added like 1/2 cup water and not much more happened. I finally noticed, I had added coconut flour instead of what the recipe called for: almond flour. Oh boy! And I don't want to throw it out. Any ideas peeps?
    Thanks for reading!!

    Welcome to the forum! :)

    Your post went into the moderation queue because of the link, I've only just seen it to approve it - sorry about that!

    Coconut flour cannot be used as a straight substitute for almond flour because it is so much drier - as soon as it comes into contact with moisture it sucks it up, so you need to take that into account. You could try adding more oil or egg, but bear in mind that coconut oil is very high in saturated fat.
