Nut-free Alternatives

Instead of 2/3 cup almond flour, use 4 heaped tablespoons (48 g/ 1.7 oz) of coconut flour + 2 oz (57 g) cream cheese, or 2 oz (57 g) flaxmeal + 2 oz (57 g) cream cheese. If using coconut flour, brush the top of the pockets with a small amount of melted ghee or coconut oil before baking.
