Can you substitute tapioca flour for coconut flour?

If you can't find coconut flour, you can make your own.  Just grind unsweetened dried coconut in a coffee mill, mortar and pestle, or blender (small amounts at a time.)  That's what I do, since my local stores don't carry it.

If you're allergic to coconut and other nut flours, there are substitutes, including tapioca.  Few are a 1:1 ratio.  Blends may be needed.  I looked around and found this.

If you would like me to search further, I'd gladly do so.

Edit:  If the coffee mill is used for coffee, clean it thoroughly.  You may still need to toss the first batch to avoid the coffee flavor.

Thank you! I have a dog who can't have grain and I ran out of treats for her, She recently had surgery so I don't want to leave her to go out and buy some if I can make them at home.
