How do I make this vegan?
It couldn’t be easier – just replace the honey with maple syrup!
How do I make this gluten free?
Make sure your thick rolled oats are gluten free. Although pats are naturally gluten free, there can be some cross contamination in farming/processing. Just check the label!
How do I make this nut free?
Use a seed butter like sunflower seed butter. Replace the 1/2 cup walnuts with more oats and/or seeds (1/4 cup oats + 1/4 cup seeds). Some bulkier seed options include sunflower or pumpkin seeds, while some smaller seed options are chia, hemp, or flax. Get creative and find a combination you enjoy!
