There’s solely two belongings you can’t sub on this recipe: oats and honey. Oats are the bottom of the recipe so I wouldn’t suggest subbing with another grain. Honey is the first binder and we haven’t discovered different sweeteners to work as properly. We’ve tried them with maple syrup and so they simply didn’t stick as properly so proceed with warning.
