Thanks for this Kate. So good to have a tested recipe that I know will be good if I need to whip up some egg and dairy free treats. Especially good for taking in for classmates I can imagine. Pinning to remember! Also, just quickly, is it 1/3 of a cup of canola oil? (I’m presuming it is and not 1/3 of a tblsp or tsp, haha)
