    I like that the icing is it non-dairy since I am lactose intolerant. But, I am not a coconut fan…does it have a strong coconut flavor?

      I don’t find coconut oil or coconut flour to be a strong flavor! I take coconut oil everyday and actually just made a pizza crust last night with cauliflower and coconut flour that is so good. Hope that helps. 🙂
