- For a medium thickness that is still pourable use 1 tbsp of the coconut oil or butter. Images above the recipe represent the medium thickness.
- For a very thick variety that you have to "whack" on or spread, then use 2 tbsp of the coconut oil or butter. Images below represent the very thick variety.
- Omit Nutritional Yeast or Salt if they aren't in your diet.
