    I've used almond flour, blend it in and it kinda makes it creamier and sweeter, more like milk chocolate but not really, so I imagine coconut flour will work fine. Didn't work as well just stired in though.

      I just used this recipe with coconut flour instead of grated coconut and it came out nicely! I used it to make almond butter cups (and topped each with some coconut chips). Awesome!

        Yep, I made some last night too with c flour. I put mine in a mini muffin pan about 1/2 inch deep so they turned out like little hockey pucks. Tasty hockey pucks.

        I added some cinnamon, nutmeg, cayenne, and salt. The c flour added enough sweetness that I didn't use any sugar at all. (Caveat here. I eat 100% bakers chocolate too.)

          I made this yesterday with equal parts unsweetened cocoa powder and vanilla protein powder, and some sliced almonds on top. Definitely a calorie bomb but it was such a treat after lunch, and I had very little appetite for dinner.

            We do coconut oil, cocoa powder, honey and then "extend" it from there as we wish (coconut, nuts, dried fruits, whatever).

              also cinnamon is a good sub for cheyanne in it -- if you want some 'spice' that doesn't have quite as much heat.

                Oh, I have a good coconut oil chocolate recipe.

                Coconut oil, melted
                Unsweetened cocoa powder
                Glucose syrup or maple syrup -- glucose syrup (Amazon.com: Glucose 8.5 Ounces-: Home & Kitchen) I bought this by mistake (thought it was regular powdered glucose), and it's a really thick, sticky glucose syrup that's used to make gum??? That's what it says on the container, but it really thickens up whatever it is you put it in. I think it's great for making candy.
                Unsweetened shredded coconut

                I eyeball all the ingredients so no measurements. I start with the CO (approx 2-3 Tbsp) and add enough cocoa powder to thicken up the oil (so that it has a chocolate sauce-like consistency). Then I add a heaping spoonful of the glucose syrup--probably around 1.5-2 Tbsp (glucose is not very sweet). The glucose syrup will really thicken up the mixture. I also taste it for sweetness. If making it for other people (who like things sweeter), I'll add some maple syrup to increase the sweetness. Finally, I add enough shredded coconut so that the mixture obtains a somewhat solid consistency. The mixture should stick together, and you should be able to shape it into balls, place on a parchment paper-lined plate, and refrigerate.
