Helpful Tips:

Frequently Asked Questions:

  1. Can I use a different flour instead of oat flour?
    Absolutely! Almond flour works well, but you might need to adjust the quantity slightly. Coconut flour is another option, but you’ll likely need less, around 1/4-1/2 cup.
  2. Can I use honey instead of maple syrup?
  3. Are these vegan?
    Not quite, due to the white chocolate coating. However, you can easily make them vegan by using vegan white chocolate chips.
