  1. I made these today , and they turned out great! I doubled up the quantities and found that I needed to use 2 cups of spelt flour. Other changes I made ( Gosh, I actually reinvented the recipe by the looks of things) I used Coconut milk- not the type from a can, but the drinkable variety from a carton. For the oil, I used half sunflower and half coconut. The mistake I made here was not melting the coconut oil first. Having said that , I don’t think it made a difference to the final product, it just meant it was lumpy when I was mixing it. And continuing the Coco theme, I used coconut vinegar, a product I found in the world food aisle of a major supermarket which is probably available in Asian supermarkets too. I will return to this recipe many time, using different toppings to ring the changes.
