  • Step 5  Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes.

Tips: You can use real milk instead of milk substitutes, coconut oil (melted first) instead of avocado oil.

First of all, these turned out great. Didn't have to change anything and the whole family loved them.

I have to say, it was quite refreshing to not have a chapter worth of back story before the recipe. Why does every recipe online have this? Nope, instead --- here's what you need, and how to make them. Made my life so much easier!
