This recipe sounds delicious! Unfortunately I am allergic to all tree nuts. Might there be a recommended substitute for the almond flour? In place of almond milk, I have been drinking oat milk and also using in some recipes which seems to work okay. Could the same apply to oat flour?


I made this to drizzle over the Outrageous Brownies for dinner when we had company. Delicious! I did add a touch of Almond milk to get the consistency I wanted. I can see this being used for many different recipes.
