    Is there an alternative to almond flour? We’re nut free

    I made these last night and my husband and I LOVED them! I didn’t have collagen powder handy, so I actually used chocolate protein powder. They tasted like Reese’s Peanut Butter cups. Absolutely delicious! Thank you Mia for your consistently amazing recipes!
