i’m trying to be healthy so i used whole wheat flour in the recipe, but if you would prefer all purpose-flour just do the damn thang. you can also sub in avocado oil for olive oil but that just seemed wrong to me. and feel free to add a 1/2 cup of raisins into the mix when you combine all of the wet ingredients together (i just couldn’t get myself to do it).
