Keep in mind that substituting ingredients may affect the flavor, texture, and bake time. With that said, here are my suggestions:

  • coconut oil- replace with butter, ghee, or vegan butter
  • milk of choice- use any milk of your preference
  • all purpose flour- replace with 1:1 gluten free flour
  • coconut sugar- replace with brown sugar
