could i use a replacement flour to make this recipe?
For this recipe, we do still use all purpose flour. You of course do not have to make it using all purpose flour, but we do recommend it for the best flavor.
I get it isn’t the most healthy option, but you do need to treat yourself every once in a while.
If you want to switch out the flour for almond, coconut, or whole wheat flour, you definitely could. However, the taste and texture will be completely different with any of those replacements.
For the best results, taste and texture, we recommend sticking to the recipe and using all purpose flour.
could i use greek yogurt instead?
For this recipe, we used a light yogurt, that was not greek. However, you could definitely use Greek yogurt. We recommend using vanilla, plain, or lemon. You could also just add a little lemon juice or extract to it, to get it more of a lemon flavor.
The main thing we were looking for as we were checking yogurt was flavor and no sugar. The Yoplait yogurt listed in the instructions is delicious, but you could replace it, very easily.
Greek yogurt is a great and healthy alternative to other yogurt. It is also usually has less sugar, but you could always double check this at the store to be sure.
