Do these taste traditonal? Will it still work if i subbed the monk fruit for stevia would that be fine and whould i have to add other ingredents? And could i swap the butter for coconut oil? Thank you
Yes! They do taste traditional and there should be no problem substituting with stevia, especially if the stevia is in a granular form (vs powdered). I have seen recipes online that use coconut oil instead of butter but I have not tried that version – worth a try though!
