*patronizing tone*? I suppose you were using that in the traditional sense and not figurative? I ask, because I've seen way too many people try "paleo" by baking themselves a bunch of gluten free food and fail miserably, so I actually care about the OP and that they succeed. My experience with coconut flour (which you agree with) tells you that I clearly use these flours when I bake - and I strongly suggest, still, that faileo baked goods should only be a sometimes food. No downvote from me, but try not to infer things that are not implied in the future. Cheers.

you can substitute coconut flour for literally any other nut flour as long as you feel comfortable tweaking the recipe. i do this all the time. coconut flour is incredibly dry, so recipes that call for it generally include lots of eggs and other binders/added moisture. if you substitute it for almond flour, for instance, you will probably either have to use more flour than the recipe calls for, or less added moisturizer, to get the right consistency. despite the patronizing tone of the first commenter, they are correct in saying that coconut flour has unique properties, so again: use whatever flour you want, but understand that you will have to play with the recipe a bit and the texture might not be quite the same.

... and just to get this out there: have you thought about simply not eating bread? :-) 'Cause at this point, you're looking for an alternative flour to an alternative flour. There are plenty of "treats" like "paleo bread" and various cakes, brownies, nut rolls, etc, but one should try to make them a sometimes-food, not a daily food.

Regardless, baking can be fun - good luck!
