Chef's Notes

Substitutions
Use other vegetables in place of the carrots. Whatever you have on hand will do! Radish, broccoli, cauliflower, or asparagus, for example, would all be delicious.

Substitute almond butter for peanut butter if you’d like.

Sugar-free
Omit the maple syrup, it’ll still be great!
