I used Forager Project unsweetened cashew milk dairy free yogurt. I love this yogurt because there are only a couple simple ingredients used!
Where can I find dairy free chocolate chips?
Help, I don’t have applesauce and/or yogurt on hand!
If you don’t have applesauce or yogurt on hand, you can try using one of these substitutes: mashed avocado, mashed banana, pumpkin puree, or nut butter. Or you can simply use more applesauce or yogurt. I haven’t made this recipe with any of those substitutes, but those are all common substitutes for applesauce or yogurt.
