Dairy Free

Since I an lactose in tolerant, I love this recipe for a treat. It doesn’t directly call for dairy, which is a benefit. Because of that, I can enjoy. If dairy isn’t a primary ingredient in a recipe, such as just in with the peanut chips or nutter butters, with proper eating habits that day I can enjoy one or two of these. It may be different for you, so be sure to consider your dairy free options when selecting nut butters and butters.
