I used Brookfarm macadamia oil for this recipe. It has a rich nutty flavour and is great for baking.

You can substitute macadamia oil for light olive oil, grapeseed oil or rice bran oil.

To make these gluten-free
Substitute whole wheat flour for gluten free flour.

To make these vegan, substitute the egg for  – 1/4 cup apple sauce and reduce maple syrup to 1 tablespoon OR 1 tablespoon cornflour mixed with 2 tablespoons water OR 1 tablespoon of macadamia oil and 1 tablespoon of water
