I wonder if I can use brown rice flour? I still have some leftover after I baked the banana nut bread.

This recipe uses less sugar and replaces white flour with whole wheat flour and ground flaxseed to increase the fiber content. Flaxseed is also a good source of Omega-3 fatty acids. The coconut oil adds a nice flavor and is an excellent source of mid-chain fatty acids and one of the richest natural sources of lauric acid, which helps protect against infectious illnesses. (Of course, these are still cookies so eat in moderation as a treat.)
