Let’s talk about substitutions!
For a vegan option nix the eggs, whisk in 7 1/2 teaspoons of ground flax seeds into nine tablespoons of water until it becomes gelatinous.
You can sub out the coconut flour for regular all purpose flour if you don’t have any/are not a fan.
Toasted pecans would work well in this if walnuts are not for you. You could also skip the nuts altogether!
Coconut flakes don’t have to be featured in this dish, you might prefer raisins (I only like raisins if they’re soaked in rum), or dried cranberries.
Some people aren’t big on maple syrup, you can go for honey, agave or just add in an extra 1/3 cup of brown sugar.
