FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions
Can I substitute steel-cut oats for quick oats?
Steel-cut oats cannot be used as a substitute for rolled or quick-cooking oatmeal in crumbles and crisps.
The result would be too gritty if you use the steel-cut oats raw, whereas the results will taste mushy if cooked using this kind of oats.
Can I substitute maple syrup for honey?
Maple syrup is great for baking! It works well in many of our favorite recipes.
Maple Syrup can be used as a 1-for-1 substitute with honey, which means you’re getting the same sweetness without changing anything about your recipe or meal prep process.
Can I use AP flour instead of whole wheat flour?
Whole wheat flour may be substituted for all-purpose in most recipes.
To replace one-third of the amount called for, use ⅓ cup whole wheat and 2/3 cup all-purpose instead.
Can I add baking powder?
You can add baking powder. It may lead to a more elevated cookie. You can add chocolate chips too! That’s the great thing about cooking. Just be aware the results may vary if you alter the recipe.
