*If you are out of eggs or want to make this vegan, you can swap 1/4 a cup of applesauce plus a 1/2 tsp of baking powder for the one egg this recipe calls for. 

*If you’d like to make this dairy free, you can use vegan butter or neutral oil. I typically use avocado oil or grapeseed oil when I make this recipe with oil.
