That makes me so happy! Glad they turned out well for you.

Made these today and they turned out beautifully! I used almond milk instead of soy and they were delicious. These will be an often made recipe for sure!

Thank you! I think of the avocado as a substitute for both, really, it has the binding qualities of the egg but the mouthfeel and wonderful qualities that come from the fat proteins. Works in a lot of different recipes, you would never know it's avocado!

These are beautiful! I'm curious about the avocado -- is it an egg or fat substitute? Another must try...
