  1. Hi. This sounds awesome!! Do you think I can substitute almond flour for coconut flour & if so can you provide measurements? I'm going to try the no bake keto cookies tomorrow. Love your recipes!

    Kind regards,

    • HI Ayah!

      Thank you so much <3

      We haven't made this recipe with any other flours so I can't say for sure, however you can simply follow a fathead recipe that uses your desired flour and just wrap your burger! 🙂

  2. Made these for dinner and dinner was a huge hit!! Mine came out soooo cute, I renamed them hamburger pizza pods!! Thanks a bunch for a simple, simply delicious recipe!
