    What a gorgeous site! My only problem is that I’m having a hard time deciding what to make first! Your pictures are so pretty. What camera do you use?

    Thanks!

  6. Jenny

    These look great! One question, can I use a different oil since we can’t do coconut, would it be the same amount? Thanks!

    We made these this afternoon and they were delicious. Sorry if this seems obvious but I did have a question about the coconut oil. Should I have melted it first, as if it were butter? Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚ Melissa

    I used less powdered sugar in the glaze and mixed some grated carrot in there as well. Also, I threw some red quinoa in for good measure.

    Just made these… amazing!
    I used margarine instead of maple syrup since it was all I had. Also used all regular whole wheat flour. Yum!!
