Here are some alternative ingredients you can consider if you want to further customize this recipe:
- Egg subsitute: For a vegan option, replace the egg with a flaxseed or chia seed egg (1 tablespoon ground flaxseed or chia seeds mixed with 2.5 tablespoons of water).
- Milk: Choose your preferred milk, whether it's dairy milk, almond milk, soy milk, or oat milk. The choice depends on your dietary preferences.
- Oat flour: if you don't have oat flour, you can add in blender oats and blend for a couple of seconds. Alternatively, you can use whole wheat flour, coconut flour, almond flour, or a gluten-free flour blend for a healthier twist.
- Protein: You can use any protein powder you like such as casein, whey or vegan. If you prefer not to use protein at all, replace with oat or all-purpose flour.
- Baking powder: You can replace it with bicarbonate soda
- Sweetener: opt for natural sweeteners like maple syrup, honey, or agave nectar. You can adjust the sweetness to your liking.
For the toppings:
Feel free to get creative with toppings. In place of Oreo crumbles, try fresh berries, sliced bananas, chopped nuts, or dark chocolate chips.
