Some say that eating carbs with fat stops blood sugar spiking too high and the fat blunts insulin response, so carbs should always be eaten in the context of a high fat meal. I don't use a glucose meter so I don't know, I think that would be the... (more)

So I absolutely LOVE the scottish buttery shortbread cookies, OMG. However, I want to find a primal recipe that doesn't use almond flour, only coconut flour, any ideas/suggestions?

using only coconut flour? Without almond flour, they would be pretty bad in my opinion. Do you have a nut allergy?
