  3. Is coconut butter the same as coconut oil? Also, would a large egg work instead of jumbo?

    1. Coconut Butter is different but you can sub with Coconut Oil, no problem! And the large egg should be fine! I would love to hear how it turns out💞

    1. Any brand of Chocolate protein powder could be used, if that's what you are asking. I just happen to be a loyal Quest user. I hope I understood your question correctly. Or did you mean not use the protein powder at all? If that's the case, you could increase your coconut flour by 2 Tablespoons and the Cocoa powder by 1 Tablespoon and that ratio should work. Let me know how it turns out💞

    2. On the frosting, if you are leaving out the protein powder just increase coco by 1 Tablespoon and taste to see if more sweetener is necessary.
