I have a recipe that I would like to change to a Paleo Recipe. Can you tell me the Almond and Coconut Flour equivalents to substitute in place of regular Flour.
Thank you. Judy R.

As has been said, it's really not that simple. I lot of baked recipes are so hard to paleo-fy that you're really better off just using a gluten-free flour blend and reducing the sugar.
Almond flour has a very distinctive taste, personally I cannot stand it.
With both flours you will need to use a binder, otherwise your baked good will be very crumbly and practically fall apart. I use xantham or guar gum - neither are really paleo. You will also need to play around with the recipe
Personally I think it's better to not consider "paleo-fied" baked goods as real paleo - make them with gluten free flour and view them as a treat. The only exceptions I have found to this are fig-and-nut bars, and sugar-free coconut macaroons.

Judy, you really can't do a 1 to 1 swap in most recipes. Almond and coconut flour behave completely different than wheat flour.
Can you share what recipe you are trying to paleofy? Maybe someone has a recipe that is similar that you could tweak.
