Hi Jamie! I’m not confident it would work as a 1:1 substitution. I’ve just never tried it before myself. But we’re all about experimenting… if you try it let us know how it turns out!

Hi Carolina, I think that would work, but you might want to run the pineapple through a food processor so it’s finely-chopped.

I can’t find white whole wheat flour anywhere, can I sub all whole wheat flour or all whole wheat pastry flour? I’m fine with the taste and texture of whole wheat flour in my baked goods.
Also can I sub zucchini for the carrots?
