  • You can replace the recommended flour hear with spelt, regular white flour or oat flour. 
  • You can opt for a sweetener you prefer here. 
  • You can opt out of the coffee and add an extra tbsp of almond milk. The coffee here helps to bring out more of the chocolatey taste.
  • Feel free to opt for any runny nut or seed butter if you have a specific allergy.
