  3. In a separate bowl, whisk your eggs. Then add the rest of your wet ingredients to the eggs. Mix well.

Notes

  • Option to sub any other drippy nut butter such as cashew or almond for the peanut butter.
  • Option to sub the white whole wheat flour for a gluten-free flour blend. We do not recommend subbing for coconut flour.
