    Yes – you can substitute coconut or rice flour to make it gluten free. It may change the texture a bit, but it will work.

    I had to change this to make it sugar and gluten free, but it was amazing! I used palm sugar to replace the brown sugar, and used 1/4 cup rice flour, 3/4 sprouted brown rice flour, 1/2 cup sorghum, 1/4 teaspoon guar gum to replace the flour. I also did an orange zest and cranberries instead of blueberries and lemon. I had to use a spatulas to mix the last bits well, and mine was done at 35 minutes.

    Thanks Tessa, I’m going to make it tonight and serve for Mother’s Day tomorrow. I’ll post my results!

    I do not think coconut flour by itself will work….it often needs eggs to work….and 1 1/2 cups coconut flour in a recipe is almost unheard of, a cup or less would be sufficient, but I would add a couple of eggs if they are tolerated. A mix of 3/4 rice 1/4 coconut might work….but a touch of guar gum might be necessary unless you use a really large apple (binding oomph)

  • Blendtec

    Yes, the above recipe is correct.
