Expert Tips

  • Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is vegan. Products and ingredient sources can change.
  • Quick-cooking oats can be substituted for the old-fashioned oats called for in this recipe.
  • Coconut oil comes in two varieties: virgin and refined. Virgin coconut oil is made using a cold-press process and retains more coconut flavor. Refined oil is more processed and is odorless and flavor-free.
  • Melt your coconut oil after you’ve measured it.
  • Vegan chocolate chips are often found in the organic section in the baking aisle at the grocery store.
