    Hi, these look great. I don’t suppose there is any way of avoiding yogurt of any kind in this recipe? I think I’ve gone into the realms of dreams, but hey; if you don’t ask, you don’t know!

    PS: I’ve only just found your website, but it looks amazing. So many delicious looking recipes, without relying heavily on almond flour. Thanks!

      Thank you so much! In this particular recipe, I believe using applesauce or coconut cream would work as a suitable replacement! If you try it, I would love to hear about it! Thank you again for the kind words. 🙂
