  3. Next, stir in the melted coconut oil, maple syrup and chocolate chips
  4. For the gelatin egg (sub 1 regular egg if tolerated) add the water to a small sauce pot and slowly pour over the 1 tbsp gelatin. You don’t want any clumps, so lightly mix if needed.

  7. For the frosting, combine the ingredients and whisk vigorously until the frosting is fluffy
