Tips & Variations
If you do not have oat flour, simply use 1 cup oats and grind it in a high speed blender until a flour is formed.
If you’d prefer not to use coconut oil, you can substitute with any other cooking oil.
If you can’t find any powdered sugar, simply make your own by grinding sugar in a high speed blender until a powder is formed.
