      I made these last night and I can highly recommend them. They are so tasty and so quick to make. I used reverse osmosis water instead of rice milk and I used coconut oil instead of sunflower oil.
      I was trying to limit myself to one a day but it looks as though it will be 2 a day! Thank you again Trinity.

        Thank you so much for the kind words Lisa.
        We find them a little difficult to resist once we make them, especially knowing that they are full of healthy stuff.

        Wow this is wonderful news. I know these go down so incredibly well whenever I’ve served them. I love the sound of rice & chestnut flour as a GF alternative. Awesome. I really appreciate you sharing that.

      Just made a dozen small cupcakes, substituted rice four as this is what I had in the store cupboard. They are absolutely GORGEOUS :-)))). Thank you Trinity for a great recipe.

      • I could have sworn that I replied to you comment before now Sue. Sorry for the delay!

        I am so delighted that you made this and replaced the flour for rice flour. It’s really great to know that it works to directly substitute like that.
        You are very welcome. ‘Tis a pleasure to share.
