Nicolette’s Tips

* You may substitute cacao powder with unsweetened cocoa powder.
* You may substitute granulated stevia with another sweetener of choice, like xylitol or splenda.
* You can make your own gluten free whole grain oat flour by grinding gluten free whole grain oats in a food processor until oats turn into a fine powder.
