These look amazing, however I’m a little confused with the amount of gentle sweet. Would it be 1 and 1/2 cups of gentle sweet (don’t have monk fruit) OR 2 cups of gentle sweet. OR is it just 1/2 cup gentle sweet total?
So if you do not have monkfruit and you have THM Gentle Sweet then you would use 1 cup total of THM Gentle Sweet. 🙂

Thanks for sharing this recipe! Can I sub equal amount almond milk?
Yes ma’am or even half and half.
Heather Hitchcock says
These look so yummy! What kind of vinegar? Just curious what it does in this recipe.
I used white vinegar!
Do you think you could use THM Baking Blend in these?
I use both THM Baking Blend and Almond Flour. 🙂
In equal amounts?
Sarah Criddle says
In the recipe it calls for 1 1/2 cup of THM Baking Blend and 1/2 cup of almond flour but you could use all Baking Blend just use a total of 1 3/4 cup of baking blend instead and no almond flour.
What kind of vinegar? Can I use acv?
White vinegar is best.
Got some white vinegar yesterday. Looking forward to making these today.
So, if you do have the Lakanto Monkfruit, is it 2 cups?
Well.. yes, but honestly I think that might be too much… I would try it at 1.5 cups and see if it’s not sweet enough!
Heather Hillberg says
Can you sub the THM baking blend with something else?
I do not have it.
Hmmm… I’m thinking a total of 2 cups almond flour and 1/2 cup of coconut flour or oat fiber…. but if you want to start with 1/4 cup of the coconut first to see if it’s thick enough that might be best!
Heather Hillberg says
I planned to make these today and realized as I was preheating that I had no white vinegar! I decided to just proceed without it and added just the almond milk instead of the milk/vinegar mix. They still turned out great, but I’m curious! What does the vinegar do to the milk for this recipe? I’m sure I’ll make these again! Delish—and they were even great warm. I didn’t have to wait until they’d been refrigerated like many THM baked goodies.
It just gives it a buttermilk flavor. I am so glad you liked them!!
Can you use the Lakanto powdered?? That’s what I have.
That would work!!
Hi! Have you ever subbed coconut oil for the butter? Thanks!
I think we have and it worked fine! Same amounts!
Joan Garner says
Well, I didn’t read the directions properly and added the cocoa to the dry ingredients, instead of boiling it. We’ll see how it comes out…
