  1. Great recipe. I thought I was going to need Sea Salt with it but did not need to add anything else because it tasted great as is. Will make this recipe again soon.

  2. I used macadamia oil if I recall correctly my first time making this @jkstrachn and it turned out great! Trying it with the coconut oil tonight for hubby’s sake since he’s a coconut fan…me, not sooo much but he’s had a long day at work so anything to make it better for him :)
