Tips + Suggestions

** DIY HOMEMADE OAT FLOUR; 2 cups rolled oats in a blender or food processor, blitz until it forms a fine flour. Oat flour texture needs to be fine, not coarse.

 

*STRAWBERRIES use fresh or frozen – finely chopped start with 1 ½ cups mix; if you would like more, add ½ cup more.

 

**MIXING COLD INGREDIENTS with warm melted coconut oil can sometimes cause the oil to partially reset – if this happens, re-warm and whisk to re-combine in a smooth mixture.  Warming maple syrup with coconut oil helps balance this – then whisk in eggs then milk.

 

MELT coconut oil with maple syrup on the stovetop or in the oven while it preheats in an ovenproof bowl.

 

SWAP coconut oil for other healthful oils like walnut, a great nutrient-dense choice.

 

LESS SUGAR uses orange juice instead of maple syrup; taste and adjust.

 

ADDITIONS seeds or nuts for extra protein or orange zest for a citrus twist.
