Notes

*Make your own homemade nut butter for this recipe!

FOR VEGAN:

  • Substitute unsalted vegan butter for regular unsalted butter
  • Try substituting 6 tbsp aquafaba or 2 flax eggs (5 tbsp ground flax + 3 tbsp water, let sit for 10 mins) for the 2 eggs, although I haven’t tried this

FOR GLUTEN FREE:

  • Substitute gluten free all-purpose flour for the regular flour

FOR NUT FREE:

  • Substitute a seed butter like sunflower for the nut butter
