    Is there a reason to start with old fashioned oats instead of quick oats? I usually use quick oats.

    Can I use SunButter instead of Peanut butter and also Fat Free Milk instead of Nut Milk? I’m highly allergic to all nuts.

    Thank you,
    Lori

      Absolutely! I often use SunButter in recipes for people with nut allergies and it works beautifully! Cow’s milk can be used instead of nut milk as well. Enjoy!

      Yes! You can use flat coconut chips, large unsweetened coconut flakes (not the fine macaroon coconut), or brown rice flakes. Hope this helps!
