Recipe Tips

Leave out nuts if serving to young children because of the choking risk. To make allergen friendly, swap out the ingredients to fit your family’s needs. For example, leave out nuts to make nut-free. For an egg-free option, replace each egg with 3 tablespoons of liquid from canned garbanzo beans for a total of 6 tablespoons.
