    Hi everyone!

    I have always wanted to try and bake french macarons, but they are almost all made with almond flour. I have a nut allergy.

    I really want to try this recipe:

    http://www.foodwanderings.com/2011/06/mocharons-chocolate-coffee-macarons.html#.UTeGk9GgnKw

    which uses peanut flour as a substitute for almond flour. Could I use coconut flour instead of these nut flours?

    Or does anyone have a recipe that has worked for them that is nut-free?

    Thanks!

    I don't have any experience with nut-free macarons, but I have seen coconut flour that is ground as finely as needed, so it seems like it would be worth a try.
