Recipe tips and substitutes

  • Oats: Do not use steel-cut oats, You may use quick oats if you don’t have rolled oats. If you don’t have any oats, use 3/4 cup of white, wheat, or oat flour.
  • Egg: There are egg substitutes out there that you can use to replace the egg. But other options that you may consider with ingredients you already have at home are flaxseed, yogurt, buttermilk, silken tofu, applesauce. replace 1 egg with 1/4 cup of all the above. If you are replacing it with flaxseed, mix 1 tablespoon of flaxseed with 3 tablespoons of water.
  • Milk: Any milk will work in this recipe.
  • Nut butter: We used peanut butter, but you can use any nut butter like almond butter or cashew butter.
  • Sweetener: We used maple syrup, but you can use honey or agave. If you want to use coconut sugar or monk fruit sweetener it’s fine too.

      Hi. Blending gives a much better “cakelike” texture. You may use your hand to mash and mix and maybe use oat flour.
