Would it work to replace coconut sugar with coconut flour and regular sugar?

For a vegan cheesecake recipe. It calls for about a cup of coconut sugar.


I was thinking of replacing it with half part cocnut flour and half part regular sugar. Or should it be more coconut flour, or more sugar, or honey maybe?

Also Instead of tofu , since im sensitive to soy , i wanted to try it with Diaya cheese, which is made with oil and pea protien. Would it work with that?

thanks for the info!
a few follow up questions

i'd stay away from the Daiya
* Have you tried it?

You can replace the tofu with soaked cashews
* how about a little less of the Daiya and add a little more almond flour and/or coconut flour? (Not flax seed flour, That's too nutty?)
(Trying to make this work without buying too many extra ingredients. already have almost everything)

I would definitely not replace the coconut sugar with coconut flour...too much fiber and not enough stuff that acts like a liquid. Instead you can use coconut nectar, maple syrup, maple crystals, agave, or white sugar.
* the recipe already has maple syrup. How about half maple syrup, half coconut flour? (Or almond flour?)

Honey is definitely not vegan
* I'm actually not vegan, just allergic to most major allergen foods

I I wanted to edit my previous post but seems to be issues, anyways I just saw a post somewhere else where they suggest just instead of coconut sugar just to use regular granulated sugar so I'll try that
