I have a 64oz low profile container also the 48oz wet blade container and the 32oz dry blade container. I was wondering which one would be best for this recipe?
Your 48 oz. container would work great for this recipe.

Is this recipe gluren free? Can I substitute the Whole Wheat flour with coconut flour?
I have tried all purpose flour and rice flour and noticed minimal difference between the two. I love this recipe. Let the mixture wait while oven is warming. I left off the applesauce. Still a Good One!

To make this vegan friendly, could I use a non-dairy milk & maybe use ground flaxseed instead of eggs. Any ideas on the amount of flaxseed needed to replace the egg?
Sorry, we have not done any testing yet on working with a flaxseed to replace egg. There are vegan egg substitute options to purchase in the market. For most recipes you can replace milk with a non dairy milk. All non dairy milks can be made in your Vitamix.
