It's important to know that different gluten-free flour blends use different ingredients and ratios, so results will always vary if you substitute. I have never used any other brand of flour to make this recipe (other than Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose Baking Flour (Amazon link) in the red bag, NOT the blue bag), so please know that your results may not be the same as mine if you substitute with another gluten-free flour blend.
This recipe will NOT work with coconut flour or any other single gluten-free flour.
Frozen blueberries can be used for this recipe if fresh blueberries are not available. Thaw them on a paper towel and pat them dry before folding them into the batter. See above for more info.
Any type of neutral flavoured oil can be used in place of coconut oil, such as avocado or safflower.
Store leftovers in an airtight container. See above for more storage info.
