    Hi Danielle!! It’s Jenn, Deacon’s mama. So I was totally able to alter this recipe to nix the dairy and the eggs and it was ahhhmazing!! I used coconut oil and applesauce in place of the butter and eggs and then instead of chocolate chips I added some unsweetened toasted coconut and raisins, delish!! Your recipe is truly versatile and yumtastic no matter what!! 🙂
