    These were my favorite treat (as well as your chai!) from my stay at Kriplau last summer. Thank you so much for sharing the recipe, I can’t wait to make them at home!

    Forgive me if I am being obtuse but what size is a cookie pan? The recipe sound great and I’d like to try it!

    can you substitute any other flours to make them GF? I’m not sure I can do spelt or oat.

    • KripaluEditor

      Absolutely! I will reach out to our chef for specific recommendations and get back to you shortly!

    I want the GF version too! I pray for them each time I visit, and more often than not, it’s those overly sweet pecan bars instead… But when I’m super lucky, and it is brownie night, I’m in heaven :-)
