    Is the coconut flour necessary? If I want to leave it out, what can I replace it with?
    Thanks!

      Yes, the coconut flour is necessary to give this dip its texture.

      1. Sara says:

        Is there something that I could substitute for the coconut flour?

        1. Laura Fuentes says:

          Unfortunately not for this recipe with these measurements. You’ll need about 4x the oat flour.

  3. Susan V says:

    What brand of stevia drops do you use, Laura? I have the powdered Stevia that I use for my coffee and tea – would that work?

    1. Laura Fuentes says:

      that works too! I use the ones from whole foods, 365 brand I think!

  4. Marie says:

    This looks really good, but I’m not sure what to dip it in. Veggies seem odd… (I’m thinking veggies & cookie dough? 🙂

    My favorite pumpkin recipe – pumpkin chocolate chip cookies!
