Everyday Tip

It’s recipes like this in which extracts and flavorings really become useful. I used to love maple syrup but let’s be honest, it’s just sugar in a different form. Using maple extract helps me feel like I am not missing out.

Everyday Swaps

If you don’t need to be dairy-free, there’s no reason you can’t use melted butter in place of the avocado oil.
